Alexis recounts her argument with Vicki, and give her take on Gretchen and Slade's relationship!

Jim and I knew that calling ourselves Christians on national television would invite all kinds of scrutiny. As a result, we thought it would be helpful to ask our Pastor and his wife to breakfast for their guidance. Pastor Jentzen is so, so busy, but never too busy when you ask him for help. He is an amazing man. The morning he came to breakfast at our house, he gave us two great tips: 1. God can use you in ways you didn't even know you could be used. 2. There is nothing wrong with standing up for yourself. So when I reminisced about my fight with Vicki in San Fransisco, I realized I had not approached it the wrong way.

On to another topic. Anyone close to Gretchen knows that she and Slade are heading in the direction of marriage, so I think it is so important that they went to her parents for advice. I mean, who is more educated in marriage than a couple who've been married 39 years? I understand that Gretchen is scared, but at this point I think the only thing that will help alleviate some of those fears is my therapist! LOL. Seriously, it's important not to drag your past into your future! I cannot say that I am completely healed of this, but I am working on it daily. Gretchen simply has cold feet because she has been married before and fears the same troubles could occur in her second marriage. I think all of us with past relationships can relate to her concerns. However, Jim and I spend a lot of time with both Gretchen and Slade, and they are truly happy and in love. We love them and wish them nothing but happiness.

I want to end with my quote for the week, from William Shakespeare. "Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none..."
