As a young girl I dreamed about saving the world one marriage at a time. Our neighbor had a sign in their home that said, “The greatest thing a father can do for his children is love their mother”. As cheesy as this phrase sounded, it resonated with my little child heart and I logged it away as a universal truth. I also distinctly remember my family always spending time with two other families. We had dinners out, games at each others homes, etc. but when I was about thirteen-ish, the unthinkable happened… both of those families ended up in divorce. I was devastated! I couldn’t understand why anyone would do such a thing! I was convinced that I could deter ANYONE from choosing divorce… (because when your a teenager you know everything right!?) haha. So of course my degree is in: Marriage, Family and Human Development. Fast forward quite a bit and I came to realize that marriage is a more complicated, but is the best place for great companionship, growth and fun too! Throw some little ones into the mix and it can be hard to show up emotionally and physically for your spouse. Choosing to be intentional about marriage can make all of the difference. Marriage with children is a place to teach forgiveness, respect, kindness, patience and all that jazz. Those little eyes and ears are soaking up our every move, so lets give them a good start!
