WashingtonPromo

Do you want your marriage to be a powerful expression of God’s love and purpose? One that will reflect glory and passion for Him through you?

Sacred and Intimate Lives of Husbands and Wives provides helpful hints on embracing the married union, and how to live your marriage as God intended. You will discover marriage is 1) instituted by God, 2) approved by God, 3) sacred and intimate, 4) an awakening to the sovereignty and love of God, 5) part of a godly purpose, and 6) a miracle of God’s grace.

Marriage is better when it contains the main ingredient… “God.”

Sacred and Intimate Lives of Husbands and Wives encourages every marriage to keep in mind their union is not about themselves.

A godly union reflects God’s love and sacrifice.

If you’re anticipating marriage, newly married, married a significant amount of years, separated, divorced, or widowed, this book is for you. In it you will find what is needed before and after that big step in holy matrimony. Her testament is based on the Word of God, research, observation, and her own marital experiences of trial, error, and-most importantly-victory!

**SPECIAL EDITION** Men in Love — The Parker J Cole Show

meninlove3Men in Love is a special show — it’s all about love, marriage, romance, and faith all from a male perspective. Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio guest hosts this edition of the Parker J Cole show.

This week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day. A holiday usually steeped in romance, from chocolate hearts, red roses, intimate dinners, and togetherness. However, in celebrating this holiday, marriages are broken, divorce rates skyrockets, and professions of love are only skin deep. For some people, they mean absolutely nothing, empty words for empty hearts.

As an author, I have access to authors from all over. I wanted to hear words of love and what love means from a male perspective. There’s a lot of misandry out there so I wanted to talk to men who used words effectively to show what love meant to them. Several men answered the call and their thoughts are for you to enjoy. Yet, I didn’t want to just say words. We NEED a biblical context for love, romance, marriage, and faith.

So, I reached out to Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio. I’ve been a follower of his show, his blog, and have had the honor of having him talk to us about Men in Love and what it truly means. His concise and poignant commentary is one that I hope will encourage and uplift you. Listen in at 929-477-1965. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11202903.

Relational Reset — The Parker J Cole Show

An experienced counselor, Dr. Laurel Shaler is passionate about helping women thrive in all of their relationships. Relational Reset will reveal unhealthy patterns that may be holding you back, give you practical steps for improving your relationships, and help you find your ultimate security and identity in Jesus Christ. When you reset your relationships, you honor God, yourself, and the ones you love.

Laurel_Shaler_proAs a counselor, professor, social worker, speaker, and writer, Dr. Laurel Shaler’s goal is to live out the words of Isaiah 61:1-3…To proclaim good news to the poor, to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, to release prisoners from darkness, to comfort all who mourn, and to bestow joy!

In order to help others in this way, Laurel earned her Masters in Social Work from Florida State University (and is a Licensed Social Worker) and earned her PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision from Regent University (and is a National Certified Counselor). She also holds a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Liberty University. Laurel has provided psychotherapy services to hundreds in need, many of whom were veterans of the United States Armed Forces. She is now an Associate Professor and Program Director at Liberty University. She is a member of numerous counseling and social work organizations, and actively presents and publishes.

The Adulteress Principality, Part 2 — The Parker J Cole Show

jezebel1

Last month, we began our series on the Adulteress Principality, Join us for part 2 with Rebecca Bruner.

She is everything a woman wants to be — glorious, beautiful, and vivacious. All men want her. She is captivating, exciting, and desirable that men can not help but succumb to her charms.

Hiding among the pages of a magazine, pictured on the billboard of the freeway, or clicked on by a mouse, the Adulteress Principality exists only to destroy the first relationship God created: marriage.

The Adulteress Principality has existed for eons, changing shape and form. She has been a woman of ample proportions. She has been a woman of slim proportions. She changes with changing dictates of the culture and what unattainable beauty demands we place upon ourselves. With silken words, she reaches out and embrace we women with words of cunning. “You do not look, act, or talk like me. I will take him from you and there’s nothing you can do.” To the men, she whispers sweet-honeyed words, “Stolen water is sweet.” With such words she entices the men to her canopied bed. Under the auspices of pleasure, she latches chains of bondage meant to steal, to kill, and to destroy.

The Adulteress Principality is not the ‘other woman’ who make take on her guise. She is a spirit who seeks to destroy not just marriages, but self-esteem, virility, and more.

A Heart Can Be Broken — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerSome time ago, I experienced the loss of a very close friendship. Circumstances had caused friction and thus, the split. I remember to this day the physical sensations which had assaulted me.  I couldn’t quite catch my breath. My vocal cords tightened so much I had a hard time swallowing. In the center of my chest, I felt a peculiar ache. It’s hard to describe it exactly so forgive me if I sound a bit melodramatic  — a pain that did not sting, a cut that did not burn, but a hurt that burrowed inside of me. When I discussed this in one of my writer groups, after all, the physical abnormalities lasted for a couple of days, a mental health professional told me, “It sounds like you had a traumatic event which may very well be a broken heart. ”

A broken heart. As authors, we use the words to describe a character’s plight but perhaps we forget that our stories are ripped out of the pages of real life.

The words of Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do with It?” ask a question about why fall in in love when a heart can be broken? In fact, she says, “Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?”
