Today I joined radio host Debbie Chavez to talk about being single, hoping for marriage, living like you're planning to marry and more in an interview about Get Married.
The interview was live but she's posted a link to the archive here.
Also today, Ted ran my article How to Pray for a Husbandon Boundless. If you've read "Pray Boldly," this will read like a part 2. If you haven't, it's a primer on the way we approach God in our desire for marriage. Here's an excerpt:

Suzanne Gosselin blogged about the article on theBoundless Line blog, talking about how she prayed for marriage when she was single, and how her husband prayed for her.

That and how to move forward in a new relationship that has the potential to go to marriage. You can read her question and my answer in "Hope for a Broken Life."
