Taking Love For Granted

By Mike Glenn Taking Love for Granted Every once in a while, a couple will come by and talk to me about their marriage.

Every Family Has Chores

By Mike Glenn When I was young, I couldn’t wait until I grew up. When I grew up, I told myself, no one was going to make me do chores ever again. When I was big, I wouldn’t have to mow the grass before I went out to play, or empty the trash before meeting […]
