Choosing to Choose Love Over Fear in Your Marriage

Choosing Love Over Fear in Marriage

By Celeste The title of this post makes it sound like I’m maybe going to talk about fear of infidelity or some serious trust issues.  I’m not.  I’m going to talk about little choices we face everyday when we see our spouse’s flaws and we can either choose to fear or we can choose to love.
