  32. “What is the biggest obstacle facing the family right now? It is over-commitment; time pressure. There is nothing that will destroy family life more insidiously than hectic schedules and busy lives, where spouses are too exhausted to communicate, too worn out to have sex, too fatigued to talk to the kids. That frantic lifestyle is just as destructive as one involving outbroken sin. If Satan can’t make you sin, he’ll make you busy, and that’s just about the same thing.” ~ James Dobson

  39. “Husbands and wives, recognize that in marriage you have become one flesh. If you live for your private pleasure at the expense of your spouse, you are living against yourself and destroying your joy. But if you devote yourself with all your heart to the holy joy of your spouse, you will also be living for your joy and making a marriage after the image of Christ and His church.” ~ John Piper

If you hear nothing else today, please hear this: There are not ‘schizophrenics’. There are people with schizophrenia, and these people may be your spouse, they may be your child, they may be your neighbor, they may be your friend, they may be your coworker.” ~ Elyn Saks , Supportive spouse quotes
  53. “It is easy to use the phrase ‘God’s will for my life’ as an excuse for inaction or even disobedience. … My hope is that instead of searching for ‘God’s will for my life’ each of us would learn to seek hard after ‘the Spirit’s leading in my life today.’ May we learn to pray for an open and willing heart, to surrender to the Spirit’s leading with that friend, child, spouse, circumstance, or decision in our lives right now.” ~ Francis Chan

  56. “And most importantly, ask more from yourself! This is the real key. Ask what you can do to help. Ask what you have to offer. Ask what you can contribute. Ask how you can serve. Ask yourself how you can do more. Ask your spouse how you could be more helpful, loving or kind.” ~ Larry Winget
  57. “When a child shuts down his painful emotional side, he also loses the ability to express his joyous side. Emotions are a whole. With anger comes the ability to express delight; with sadness comes the ability to express lightheartedness. This is the breadth of emotion that allows an adult to experience intimacy with a spouse, with God, and with his children” ~ Henry Cloud
  58. “Marriage includes a spouse, and often children. But the goal, center, and purpose of marriage is not self, spouse, or children. The ultimate goal of marriage and family is the glory of God. Only when marriage and family exist for God’s glory – and not to serve as replacement idols – are we able to truly love and be loved. Remember, neither your child nor your husband (or wife) should be who you worship, but instead who you worship with.” ~ Mark Driscoll
  59. “Your pitching coach is almost like your spouse. He’s someone to go to when you want to gripe and complain. The big thing for me with Mel (Stottlemyre) is that we’ve been through so much together. He’s been through everything I’ve been through on the mound. He was a Yankee who won twenty games in New York and a Yankee who didn’t win twenty games in New York. For me, he’s been there and that’s what makes a good pitching coach. He’s a good man, too.” ~ Andy Pettitte
  60. “Surround your marriage with people who pull you toward your spouse.” ~ Ted Lowe

  61. “You can only afford to be generous if you actually have some money in the bank to give. In the same way, if your only source of love and meaning is your spouse, then anytime he or she fails you, it will not just cause grief but a psychological cataclysm. If, however, you know something of the work of the Spirit in your life, you have enough love “in the bank” to be generous to your spouse even when you are not getting much affection or kindness at the moment.” ~ Timothy Keller
  62. “The best way to make your spouse and children feel secure is not with big deposits in bank account, but with little deposits of thoughtfulness and affection in the ‘love account.'” ~ Zig Ziglar
  63. “Compared to other parents, remarried parents seem more desirous of their child’s approval, more alert to the child’s emotional state, and more sensitive in their parent-child relations. Perhaps this is the result of heightened empathy for the child’s suffering, perhaps it is a guilt reaction; in either case, it gives the child a potent weapon–the power to disrupt the new household and come between parent and the new spouse.” ~ Letty Cottin Pogrebin
  64. “You may have no family, no food, no clothes, no future, no spouse, no health, or no children, yet be rich beyond your wildest dreams because you have the Holy Spirit in your life.” ~ Jill Briscoe
  65. “Negative feelings are in you, not in reality. Stop trying to change reality. That’s crazy! Stop trying to change the other person.

Negative feelings are in you.” ~ Anthony de Mello
