How can I make my spouse more like me?

How can I make my spouse more like me? I didn’t say how can I make my spouse like me more. I said how can I make my spouse more like me.

Guess what – I just bought the farm!

Guess what – I just bought the farm! History tells us that when a military jet crashes on a farm the farmer typically gets the government to pay off the mortgage on that farm. And thus the saying, “He bought the farm” refers to someone dying. But then there’s the positive side of just deciding to have a small farm. I’ve got an opportunity where you might just be able to do that – for $300. Do you think the benefits of homeschooling outweigh the costs? And How can we nurture the...
