Behind the Scenes – what you don’t always read about before an event

Sherbit! It’s been a long time since I’ve actually been able to sit down and write anything. You will not believe how intense the last few days/week has been. I feel like I could literally exhale all of my troubles, memories and victories right here for you to read. There’s probably going to be like three posts coming out of me today.

Being married to an “all in” kinda guy – it’s not what you think……

Every time I think about writing about being Tim’s wife and what we do, I honestly sit and have a debate about how much do I share and what do I keep private. You know? It’s this toss up between being too familiar and private or too much information or should I share a lot more? I have this debate because as much as I love to write and record what my thoughts are and what’s happening – it’s not just my life here, it’s Tims’, my kids and those closest to us. Continue reading “Being married to an “all in” kinda guy – it’s not what you think……”

How do you make a difference in a messed up world?

Today I was doing my usual scrolling through social media and was honestly, slightly overwhelmed with all of the mess in our world. It’s hard to have so much information about a world so big and being so small and feeling completely powerless about the massive problems in the world. Many countries lack human rights that we can’t even begin to understand – especially growing up ‘free’. Continue reading “How do you make a difference in a messed up world?”

This everyday walk isn’t rose petals and milk baths

Ugh. That’s how I felt last night as I got ready for my week. I get irritated with how life changes every week and also day to day. It’s never the same. I honestly would love to have everyday be amazing and inspiring and full of awesome memories and invigorating challenges. But, nooooooooo, there are those days when it’s hard to mentally lift yourself and encourage yourself to press on and change the “mood” or “atmosphere”.  Continue reading “This everyday walk isn’t rose petals and milk baths”

When He’s out late, a lot : being the “Ministry Wife”

Being “the wife” has so many perspectives that it’ll probably take a book to give an account of every kind and the reason would be – because every marriage is unique and every woman is approaching their relationship differently. With that said, I’m going to shed some light on an aspect of being “the wife” that you’ll either relate to, be indifferent to or think I’m completely insane to live like we do. “The wife” perspective in this post is the “ministry wife”.

Am I naive or is this reality? how I love my husband

Ok so the title is quite a big one to cover but I’m really in the mood to share a little bit of my experience and lessons learned over the years. Let’s get one thing straight-we as a couple we are no where near perfect (thank goodness for that or else why would we need Jesus, right?) and also we have a really long way to go. But, many husbands and wives out there can probably agree with me on the fact that once you say “I do” before God and witnesses, there’s a shift that happens – a click that Continue reading “Am I naive or is this reality? how I love my husband”

“Wife” / “Mom” who am I without those titles?

Whenever Tim travels, I find that I continuously ask myself the question – Who am I without him? and what am I going to do when the kids are grown? It’s honestly so easy to feel like I’m lost in this “wife”/”mom” thing. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the fact that I feel like I won’t find me when the kids are bigger. Or that, all I am is “Tim’s wife”. (note the tone of how I’m saying that is with slumped shoulders)  Continue reading ““Wife” / “Mom” who am I without those titles?”
