Months ago, I was asked to prepare a message on "Encouraging Husbands". I knew right then that God had work to do in my heart. Marriage is a topic I am very passionate about. My husband and I will be the first to tell you that marriage takes a LOT of work! The enemy wants nothing more than to destroy families. Husbands and wives that lay aside the "American dream" and seek to obey the Lord in caring for others ... including those in greatest need ... well, they will come up against some hefty opposition. Add into that mix the humbling journey of being a parent and there are opportunities every day to get distracted from the big picture. There are reasons each day to lose hope. To give up. To check out.
I'm looking forward to sharing with a group of moms this Friday on "Encouraging Husbands". We'll be tackling the deep stuff and even sharing some laughter as we do. It is my deepest desire to see wives truly be lovers of their husbands. God didn't just call us to be good moms .... he's called us to care about their daddy, too! And as marriages become more healthy and seek the heart of their Father, I can't help but believe we'll see more families step up to do radical things.
I can't wait to see what God has for us moms this Friday!
