  A relationship is like a pebble—when it hits the water it creates a ripple that has an impact way beyond where it entered. Research tells us that the greatest source of joy in life is healthy relationships and that the greatest source of frustration and pain is unhealthy relationships. Like the little pebble dropped in the water, the quality of our relationships ripple across our lives, the lives of those around and even impact future generations.

Question of the Day

My husband has a problem with routinely taking a shower. Sometimes three days will go by before he does! I’ve tried a lot of things to get him to shower at least every other day. He won’t even wash up daily. To me, it’s about plain cleanliness and maturity. He thinks he has to stink in order to shower, but I think you should shower before you stink. Any advice?
This is one of those difficult male/female situations we call, “I can’t get my spouse to see it my way”! You aren’t the first wife who has come to us with this kind of concern. We agree that while the issue is cleanliness and maturity it’s also about honor and respect.
