We spent almost two hours talking about family and church and school and home. It was great fun to discover some things we shared in common. When our conversation turned to the topic of marriage, we shared from our hearts some of the ways we encourage our husbands, who work hard every day to support their families. We also talked about the Anchor in our marriage, Jesus. For Christ is the foundation of every healthy relationship.
I have been invited to write for the Titus 2 In Action blog on the topic of marriage. I am very excited about this, for I love to share with others what I have learned through God’s Word and through my everyday experiences. My husband Jeff and I are raising three kids in the greater Los Angeles area. Simone is a sophomore in high school and just got her driver’s permit last week, so we are about to embark on a whole new adventure with her. Our youngest children, Brynn and Parker, are both in elementary school, and we enjoy the various extra-curricular activities like Girl Scouts, ballet class, piano lessons, and baseball practice.
Amidst this sometimes-busy pace of life, I like to invite friends out for coffee. While I don’t drink coffee per se – I usually order apricot tea – I do like the ambiance of a quaint café where I can meet with a friend to chat. As I write for this blog, I hope to convey the same kind of atmosphere – as if we were together sharing a pot of tea, talking about the importance of keeping God first in our marriage. I look forward to getting to know some new friends here too, in this amazing world known as the blog-o-sphere.
