Previously, I shared how five years ago I checked out regarding financial matters. Although my husband is good with numbers and is pretty smart with money, let me tell you why my checking out was dangerous. “She will do him good and not evil all of her days.” – Proverbs 31:12 I placed undue stress… Read More Let’s Chat About Checking Out (Budgeting)
I’m admitting it. Jonathon and I have not always been smart with our money. In fact, there have been times when we were down right stupid. There it is in black and white. Now that it’s out there, let’s talk about what we are doing to fix stupid. Two words: DAVE RAMSEY. Although I read… Read More I Don’t Budget Because I’m Broke, I Budget Because I’m Brilliant!
“Our marriage has been so successful because the wedding day went off without a hitch!” said NO ONE EVER! I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. Over the five years that Jonathon and I have been married, we have watched many other couples get married. Many of these couples have asked for advice about… Read More Renewal
After an unresolved argument with my husband, I stomped up the stairs and picked up my journal and Bible. First, I wrote in my journal:The Word says that you shouldn’t go to sleep mad. Well, Lord I’m mad. I wanted to resolve the issue at hand, but Jonathon says he needs time to think. He… Read More Sleeping With My Anger
I was talking to my husband, Jon, the other day about an engaged couple. My husband told me the guy felt that no matter what he does, the female is not satisfied. She says that she wants something, he gets the item or performs the task, but still she complains. Jon said he chuckled, thinķing,… Read More Growth Trumps Happiness
Well, here it is! I know my plate looks kinda skimpy, (lol) I just wanted to give you all a sample. I added some wonderful Glory greens and Uncle Ben’s rice! It was mmmn mmmn yummy! When my husband walked in the door he smiled and said, “Wow Babe! It smells great in here!” Can’t… Read More Crock pot Success!
In some of my recent blog posts I’ve shared about the new season of life and marriage that Jonathon and I are experiencing. The first parts of this season were not fun, I must admit. BUT GOD. I think it’s important to share this because experiencing seasons is perfectly normal and natural. All relationships go… Read More Seasons of Love
(Part II) Weight – Marriage is designed to be a great partnership. It is designed to be an example of how the Holy Trinity operates and loves. So, why does it not always feel that way? 🙂 I don’t know about you, but there are times when I feel alone, even in the presence of… Read More Sweet Sacrifices…Vivid Visions Pt. II
Yesterday was our 4 year anniversary!! So what did we do? Not much, actually. (lol) I know that sounds super unromantic, but sometimes it doesn’t have to be all fireworks, and rose petals, and wine. Sometimes it is appreciating the everyday, ordinary. We had dinner as a family on Friday and walked around the city.… Read More I love you, Man!
As I read a fellow bloggers post (yougetlifted.blogspot.com), it got me thinking. In her post titled, “Get Pregnant Again, Please”, +Barbara Dixon discusses the constant prodding by well-meaning family and friends into her family expansion plans. I chuckled as she notes how everyone is very concerned about her current child’s development if he lacks a sibling, but… Read More Pregnant Yet?
