August 30th: Dr Carol and Al talk about the “large” problem of obesity in this country, even in the Christian church. And they share the secret of how Al lost over 85 pounds with NO diet, NO pills, NO surgery, and NO suffering! And they share how you can do the same. You will laugh as you listen, and be encouraged.
HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR SPOUSE: -
How many times do you hear some say, “I look forward to board meetings!” But really, I do.
Now, these are not your normal board meetings. These meetings may be short or long, fun or serious, superficial or deep. The agenda may include topics such as prayer and gratitude, stress over money or health, fears or hopes about the future, children or grandchildren, or strategy in business and ministry.
I’m talking about the board meetings my husband Al and I hold every night when we go to bed. We’ve done this ever since we were first married, and I can’t imagine a successful, happy marriage without something like our board meetings. Sometimes those meetings are full of laughter and playful teasing. There have been times they result in tears. If we’re tired they may be very short.
Our board meetings don’t always solve every item on the agenda; that’s not their purpose. But they do make certain that things are clear between us before we go to sleep. We close the day knowing we are on the same side, facing the same issues shoulder to shoulder. We understand what’s important to each other, and usually feel closer than ever.
That doesn’t mean we never disagree, or that we never have problems. But having almost daily board meetings means that no wall has a chance to grow between us.
You probably don’t need to be told how important communication is to a healthy marriage. But although it’s vital, it may not always seem easy to do.
Some people find conversation easier than others. The conventional wisdom for years was that women were more verbal than men. But more study has shown that both men and women actually speak about the same number of words each day. Of course there’s a lot of variation, but men can talk too! And if you’re a wife, you may be in a good position to help your husband do this even better.
If communication between you and your spouse has been difficult, here are some parameters to consider:

If you interested in resources about losing weight without diets, pills, surgery, or suffering, here are some Scriptures and resources we mention on the August 30th program, and more that we didn’t, that can help:
Philippians 2:12,13 “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.”
- 1 Corinthians 6:19,20 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
