News About This Blog

I know I haven’t been updating this blog regularly like I used to … and you’ve been telling me about it.   I had a sweet older lady, that I didn’t even know was a reader, catch me this week and tell me I need to do a better job updating my blog. She is totally right.

Here are some things I need to let you know…

  1. I promise to update my blog at least twice a week.
  2. Much of our marriage stuff has been moved to Facebook.  If you are on Facebook, find us there: “Trey & Lea’s Marriage Updates.”
  3. Many of the things I put here may not be things I write, but pictures, links and info that I find interesting.

Thanks for your patience with me.

Upcoming Stronger Marriage Workshops

Here are some upcoming Stronger Marriage Workshops that Lea and I will be doing…

We think our “Stronger Marriages” is a great way to strengthen your marriage … whether your marriage is good, bad, struggling or great.  Whether you are a newlywed or have been married for 40 years, this workshop will bless you.  Here are some of the things we’ll be covering …

  • 10 Things a Husband Needs from His Wife
  • 10 Things a Wife Needs from Her Husband
  • If there is 1 thing you can do immediately to impact your marriage … it’d be “this!”
  • Myths about Marriage
  • 5 Ways to Kill Your Marriage
  • Are You Roommates or Soulmate?
  • Sex & Intimacy … The Way God Designed It.
  • Q & A time.

In our Stronger Marriage workshop we use videos, PowerPoint and handouts that go with the material presented. Sometimes we have  book giveaways. We believe the workshop to be fun, upbeat, and hands on (no pun intended).

We are looking forward to meeting some great couples who are simply wanting to strengthen their marriage.

Great marriages don’t just happen, they take work. So spend a day making an investment in the most important relationship you have … your marriage.

How Would You Like to Live Here?

I just got back from Honduras. It was a great trip. I have LOTS of stories to tell you, but first check out this picture (click on it to blow it up) …

2 Really BAD Houses in Buen Samaritano, Honduras.

THE BAD NEWS: I took this picture last Saturday in Buen Samaritano of two horrible houses where two different families are living. The houses are mostly made from scrap tin and scrap wood that these families have found at the dump. The one that is mostly tin gets so hot it’s almost unlivable.

THE GOOD NEWS: This morning I talked to my friend Randy Allen, who is in Honduras, and he and friends were standing in front of these very two houses as we talked. Those good people from the “Build Hope” group will replace those nasty houses with two brand new houses by the end of today. Can’t wait to see the picture of the new houses. Great job Build Hope.

God is good…

UPDATE … HERE THEY ARE….

11 Ways To Turn On A Woman

Of course chocolate NEVER hurts. :)

Every time I see an Old Spice commercial (like this one), an Axe hair-gel commercial or a TAG body-spray commercial, I just shake my head.  According to the commercials, if you just use these products, women will be uncontrollably attracted to you sexually.  Now men, I’ll be the first to admit, it is important to your wife that you smell good, BUT a quick shot of TAG body-spray is not going to make her jump you in the grocery store.

That got me to thinking about things that really turn a woman on. First thing husbands need to understand when it comes to sex is that men are like a microwave and women are more like a slow-cooker … meaning she needs you to start the romance early in the day. Husbands, notice the list below … all these things start BEFORE bedtime. MEANING if you just wait for bedtime to get “romantic” … you’re probably too late!  The commercials may say Tag body-spray is the way to go, but my money is on these…

  1. Give your wife a back or foot rub, no strings attached.
  2. Cook dinner one night and clean up the kitchen when you’re done.
  3. Buy her a gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure or massage … for no reason at all.
  4. Help pick up and clean the house, or help the kids with their homework.
  5. Cool it with the criticism. Instead praise her publicly and/or privately. Tell her how beautiful she looks.
  6. Stay home with the kids and let her get out of the house by herself. Or take the kids out of the house and let her stay home by herself, her preference.
  7. Do a chore for her that she doesn’t like to do.
  8. Surprise her with her favorite candy, and don’t make a wise crack about the calories.
  9. Call her from work just to say hello.
  10. Tell your wife you get turned on just thinking about her.
  11. Take her on a weekly date.

So, wives … can you add some more I’ve missed?

Babies in a Cardboard Box … Amazing!

I read this morning that Americans will spend $470 billion dollars buying gifts this Christmas. That’s a staggering $11 million dollars EVERY MINUTE from Black Friday until Christmas Day. I just wanted to remind you that most of the world doesn’t live like you and I do. This amazing picture is of a “modern” neo-natal unit and crib room at the Western Regional Hospital in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras, where they have no money to buy real cribs. Wouldn’t it be great if this Christmas you and I spent as much on feeding and helping the poor as we did buying gifts for those who really have plenty? If that sounds good to you, you might check out World Vision or Bread For a Hungry World. Both are great organizations helping the poor throughout the world.

The amazing picture was from my friend Macbis Azucena Maldonado Hernandez.

When God Puts Someone In Your Life That Needs Help … Don’t Call Someone Else, YOU Bless them.

I love ministry, I really do. But one of my pet peeves is people calling me to do their ministry for them. When God puts someone in your life that needs loving, serving or ministering to … YOU do it.  If you need help, I’ll help you … but you try it first. For example, […]

Soulmate or Roommate?

I’m starting a class this Sunday called “Soulmate or Roommate?.” Marriage was never intended to turn in to simply cohabitation with someone of the opposite sex, yet often it does.  Sometimes we become roommates with our soul mates because of laziness and selfishness that creep into our marriages without us doing something about them. So […]
