Leadership is learned in the home. Eight principles I try to live by in my marriage. 1. You will get out of it what you put into it. Blame and rationalization are familiar reactions but lead nowhere. They are a symptoms of spiritual blindness. Fight against the thinking, “It’s my spouses fault.” 2. I am in control of my own […]
