How Do I Look? And Other Loaded Questions in Marriage (For Men's Groups/Retreats)
At some point in his life, every man has walked through the minefield of a woman’s questions. He can usually smell the danger, but often underestimates the explosive nature of his wrong answer. Few men ever stop to think about what lies beneath the surface of her questions in order to engage her heart. The loaded questions women ask of men expose more about the asker than they do about the one being asked. Willie Batson shares what he has learned about what wives want from their husbands.
Lessons from Humpty Dumpty’s Great Fall (For Men's Groups/Retreats)
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men, Couldn’t put Humpty together again. Poor egg. Humpty’s life was scrambled in a milli-second. Being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the right breeze shattered his shell and fried his future. There are at least three things that can shatter a man’s marriage. Three things can knock him off the wall. Three things that, if not dealt with openly and honestly, will destroy his marital future – addictions, pornography, and inappropriate relationships. Humpty Dumpty may not seem relevant, but Willie believes HD’s example can teach me at least three lessons on how to protect their hearts and marriage.
