Well, one of the ways that pressures change in life has to do with children. When your kids are at home, you have a lot more control over them, tell 'em where to go, and who to meet with…But when kids get older and they leave the house, all you can do is pray for them.

When I was a teenager, my favorite place to hang out was church. Unbelievable for most teenagers, but church for me. . . .The favorite place I hung out was the golf course…We had like a drag everyone would go down, and everyone would hang out at Sonic.

Our class had a lot of, I guess, bad seeds. Teachers, if they knew our class was next, were just dreading it. I knew what was right, and sometimes I would do it, and other times I would just do what wrong because it didn't seem like it was that big a deal.

My daughter is nine months old and it's just so fun to hold her and squeeze her. She just smiles and giggles and enjoys it and it's just wonderful.

When I became a teenager, I was taller than everyone in the class, so that was a big physical change for me - a little awkward and gawky. I fought a lot with my mom at that point. It was a hard transition.

I thought I was in love because I couldn't stand not to be with this person. I wanted to be with him and I wanted to have his children. But you really don't know what true love is until you've been married for a while.

Probably I complain about my children - they don't act the way I want them to. Maybe I don't just verbally complain but in my heart I complain - maybe the actions of my wife or other people's actions or something like that.

I wish I would've had more godly input about remarriage, submission to husband, how to encourage my husband, it'd been nice to have had some help about stepparenting.

When my son first started driving, he asked me, when we were going through the insurance process, could he be listed as a secondary driver, and I would be the primary, which would make the insurance much cheaper. And I said "Son, that's just not the right thing to do. He didn't like that, because it was money that was coming out of his pocket. But I think later on he did realize that was the right thing to do.

I remember a time when I had to tell my fiancee - soon to be wife - about something from my past that I knew I had to tell her. But I knew it wasn't going to be fun, but I did it. It set the stage for where we communicate today, now fourteen years into marriage.
