Today’s post comes from Radical Mentoring Executive Director Kevin Harris . . . This September, Susan and I will celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. I’d love to say I remember the small details of that day . . . the flowers, the music. But I would be lying. However, I would be quick to recall…

The Death of Delayed Gratification

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 12, 2018

As a culture, we’re killing the idea of suffering now for the good stuff later. We want the new car and the newest, coolest stuff, but we don’t want to save for them. We want them now. The result? Car loans, credit card payments, and oppressive debt. We want happiness, and we want it now….

What’s Unpacked Sometimes Unravels

Imagine coming home one night and your wife of 20 years says she’d like for the two of you to get a prenuptial agreement. How would you react? “What’s going on?” “Is she getting ready to leave?” “Does she think I’m ready to hit the door?” Would be pretty tough wouldn’t it? Eventually, you could…

Are You Married to an Introvert?

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 1, 2018

I’m married to an introvert. And I love her with all my heart! But we are as different as night and day. As I’ve been ‘studying my wife’ . . . trying to be more kind and empathetic, she’s been teaching me some things about introverts. It’s almost like learning a foreign language for me,…

Do You Know Where Her Heart Is?

Years ago, I was having lunch with one of my guys. It was our “one-on-one” to get to know each other. He toured me around his office, introduced me to his partners, and totally blew me away with how smart and competent he was. But at lunch, when we started talking about marriage, the conversation…

Ronald Wayne, one of the co-founders of Apple Computer, sold his 10% interest in the company for $800 . . . less than two weeks after it started. What would have ended up being worth $75.5 billion was traded away for less than some people pay for a month’s rent. Wayne later said he made…

Raw Spots

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 20, 2017

When you’re saying something and you feel a little twinge of “I shouldn’t be saying this” and then you look at your wife and the temperature has dropped 20 degrees and the wind’s now coming from the north . . . you’ve hit a raw spot. For years, I ignored it. I just kept talking….
