Making Your Marriage a Priority

Making Your Marriage a Priority After Baby

When I was pregnant with my first son, I received more advice than I could possibly process. I couldn’t go to the grocery store without people giving me their (often unsolicited) child-rearing opinions. So around the middle of the second trimester, I just stopped listening. As soon as I’d hear the infamous “Let me give […]

The Divorce That Saved My Marriage

The Divorce That Saved My Marriage

I was done. I quit. I believe the exact terminology used was, “We’re done! There’s nothing you can do. I’m divorcing you. Your daughter is living with me, and you can come see her, but I’m not going to put up with this any longer. I deserve a heck of a lot better than this. […]

Home Date Nights: How We Fit It In & What We Do

Let’s start with the first question you’re asking: Why would you ever consider a home date night? Don’t get me wrong—I’m a huge fan of dates away from home.

The Book That Saved My Marriage

The Book That Saved My Marriage

To say that I was the most religious of individuals when I got married would be an exaggeration, to say the least. But before we were married, my husband and I did see a religious movie, Fireproof, and it was very powerful. The movie inspired me to read the related book, The Love Dare. But it […]

Blended Family

The Two Men in My Life: Blending the Family

Mommy, will you marry me? My son, Parker, was so in love with his mommy that he regularly made little engagement rings out of whatever he could find (usually the twisty ties in the produce section of the grocery store) and asked me to marry him. Because he was but five or six years old […]

Be Kind to Your Heart

If you read any women’s magazines, you know that February is heart month and February 3rd is Go Red Day. Because heart disease and stroke contribute to one in three deaths among women each year, this is a great time to assess how you can be kind to your heart. But please DON’T think I’m going to […]

Today was a Difficult Day

Today was a Difficult Day

Today was a difficult day; tomorrow will be better. My mom taught me this when I was a child. When I was younger, I never was aware of my mother’s vulnerability. I suppose most young children view their parents as some sort of superheroes who never have bad days. Until I got older, I didn’t […]
