Doggy Style(Sex tips for married men)

 
Men! Thank God for you, but sometimes you just don’t get it! Do you know what you wife wants, do you know what she needs?
1. Give: Put your wife’s needs ahead of your own. The Bible talks about loving your wife as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it.  Selflessly, unconditionally, sacrificially.  No more, “wham, bam, thank you ma’am”.
2. Be considerate:A good number of women today, carry bigger loads than their mothers did, some without support of […]

Consistency

It is said:
Guard your thoughts,
For Thoughts become Words,
Words become Actions,
Actions become Habits,
Habits become a Character,
A Character becomes a Reputation.

To succeed in life or fail;

If you do it over and over,
It becomes like a rudder;
Steering your life’s course.
 
In consistency lies the power,
To build […]
