Answered Prayers

Today’s post is the 4th in a Word WashedWife series on prayer. I believe you will enjoy reading my DIL, Sarah’s words about a scary time in her marriage to my son, JP. Keep reading: “JP and I met during a time when we were both far from God. My walk with God was distant and he had rejected his faith. We started dating in the summer of 2010 and that fall I transferred and joined JP as an Auburn student. We were inseparable. “

Iron Sharpens Iron

Today’s post is the 3rd in a WordWashedWife series on prayer. It is written by my daughter Madeline. I believe you will benefit from her post about a troublesome time in her marriage after having children. Keep reading: “There will be moments that your spouse will deeply disappoint and hurt you.  Notice I don’t say there may be, because there will be.  Marriage is the closest, most vulnerable, most intimate relationship a human can experience on Earth.  As a result, it has the power to wound in a way that you wouldn’t think possible.” 

I Wish...

I have always said MOTHERHOOD is synonymous with guilt and self-loathing!  This must stop!  No more should we think, I wish I baked cookies every week like Sally does, or I wish I was volunteering at the school every day like Jennifer or got to stay home with my kids like Molly.  😊  This must end.

Average Joe

Each time I watch the Olympics, I always have the same thought- we need an average Joe.  If I was in charge I would insist we start each event with a random drawing from the list of spectators- “Would the person sitting in Section F, Row 16, Seat 7 please report to the starting line or the ice rink, whatever the event.”  Then we would all watch as the average Joe, someone like us, attempted the event.
