Mahmoud’s passion for his wife Fereiba, a schoolteacher, is greater than any love she’s ever known. But their happy, middle-class world—a life of education, work, and comfort—implodes when their country is engulfed in war, and the Taliban rises to power.

Mahmoud, a civil engineer, becomes a target of the new fundamentalist regime and is murdered. Forced to flee Kabul with her three children, Fereiba has one hope to survive: she must find a way to cross Europe and reach her sister’s family in England. With forged papers and help from kind strangers they meet along the way, Fereiba […]

In Laws, The Extended Family–Part 2

Today we are continuing our series entitled In-laws, the extended family. We are looking at the relationship between married couples and their in-laws. In any marital relationship there will be difficulties that will arise with our in-laws, but how well we work together as a couple resolving conflicts as an extended family, will determine the health of the relationship over time. Last week we looked at the biblical principle of husbands leaving their father and mother, and being joined to their wife, and the two of […]

In-Laws-The Extended Family–Part 1

My wife and I are going on 31 years of marriage, and I must say, we haven’t had any major problems with our in-laws over the years. Don’t get me wrong, we have had our differences at times with them, but as a married couple, we have always been able to talk to each other about issue(s), we were having with our in-laws without taking it personally. Whatever decision we made to resolve an issue(s), we supported each other in order to correct the problem. I believe we […]

Raising Respectful Children In Society

In a previous blog I mentioned, the importance of us as parents to teach and model respect before our children. One of the reasons why we need to train our children, to respect each family member in the home, is because it prepares them for life in the real world. I believe there are many disrespectful children in our society today. Simply for the reason, that some aren’t even taught or modeled respect in their home. Some children come from families, where their parents are disrespectful to […]

Love & Respect: A Great Combination For A Couple

If you were to ask me, Tyrone what kind of marital relationship do you and your wife have today? I would tell you we have a great relationship, but we are still learning and growing together as a couple. We understand as a couple, we are both different individuals with different emotional needs. Two of those emotional needs are to be “loved” and “respected”. In fact in this week’s blog, we will deal with these two needs that every marriage must have, in order to […]

Leaving A Legacy Of Faith To Our Children

Today’s blog is in honor of the Easter holiday that is coming up this Sunday. I will be sharing my thoughts about the importance of parents, passing along their Christian faith to their children. Since my wife and I are people of faith, we believe in today’s culture, it is our duty and job to pass down the timeless truths and values of our faith, which has worked for us to our children. I call it leaving a legacy of faith to our children. Some people […]

Respect In The Home

In today’s marriages and families one of the major problems between husbands and wives, parents and children, is a lack of respect in the home. We see on the News couples that are involved in domestic disputes because someone felt disrespected. Or a conflict between a parent and child, which resulted in someone getting hurt because they felt disrespected. We even know of people in our families and on our jobs who feel disrespected in their relationships. When I think of the principles I learned in life growing up about the family, I […]
