My wife has caused a lot of stress in my life; in fact, I am married to a stress agent! Now, before you start wondering about our relationship, you need to know that if you are married at all, you are married to a stress agent too! That’s part of God’s plan.

In many ways, I am a better person today than I was when she married me because of the stress that motivated me to make changes in my life.
