1.
“But so often today, instead of investing in our children and giving them the attention they need, we give them activities. We're running them here and there, taking them to this activity, getting them back to that special function and then to another activity. It's like we're running a bus service. We sit back and watch them play sports, watch them do ballet, and watch them in the school play. And that's fine. I played a lot of sports. But if we're not careful, we will substitute activity for attention.”
From "A Lasting Investment," The Christian Post

2. “It is important for a husband to understand that his words have tremendous power in his wife’s life. He needs to bless her with words. She’s given her life to love and care for him, to partner with him, to create a family together, to nurture his children.”
From “Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential

3. “Let me ask you, are you transferring your wisdom, your experiences, your shortcuts, your recipes down to the next generation so they can start ahead of you?”
From "A Lasting Investment," The Christian Post

4. “Your relationship would improve immensely if you’d simply start speaking kind, positive words, blessing your spouse instead of cursing him or her.”
– From “Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential

5. “Truth is, no two people are completely compatible. We have to learn to become one. That means we may have to make sacrifices; we may have to overlook some things. We must be willing to compromise for the good of the relationship. You have to make a switch. Decide today to start appreciating your spouse’s strengths and learn to downplay their weaknesses. If you do, your marriage will be filled with more peace, unity and love, and you’ll see God bless your marriage in greater ways.”
As quoted in The Christian Post

6. “If we will do our part and take a strong stand for our families, God will do His part. He’ll help us to have great marriages and great relationships with our parents and children.”
–To the Post

7. “We’ve got to give people room to have a bad day.”
From a sermon

8. “The marriage partner is not really the problem. No other person can ultimately make you happy. You must learn how to be happy within yourself.”
– From “Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential
