When I started writing my article that went live today at Christianity Today Women, my intentions weren’t to share the story with the world. I was writing for myself. Therapy on paper. But in the midst of it, the call out came for marriage articles, and I knew (if Corey would give me his blessing) I needed to submit a query. We are in this marriage thing together, Corey and I. Last year we met in sickness head on. (Dang you breast cancer.) As we walked with in sickness, we also met up with for worse. We fought them both and won. But…

Though I have not yet met Dorothy in person, we have come to know each other in that crazy online fashion that happens these days. She is a fellow Christianity Today Women writer, and as a mom of three boys like me, I feel a certain kinship to her. In the following interview, Greco speaks of her new book Making Marriage Beautiful. A book that has been ruminating and growing in her mind for 25 years of marriage. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into the book. (And then head over to amazon to pre-order it!) How is your…

Proverbs 21:9 Better to live on a corner of the roof than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

It’s…

I’m beginning to think my posts at Inspire a Fire are working against me. 😉 Last month I wrote about our moving lifestyle. How it works well for us, and how I have learned to enjoy it. But about a week after it posted, it hit me that we are about to do this thing again, and that we don’t know where we are going next. And though I’m ready for it, it didn’t stop me from having about a 24-hour period of some serious anxiety. I’m a planner. And planning for the unknown is a bit tricky. This month my post…

In the past two weeks Corey has had to help me do a lot of things that I didn’t figure I’d need assistance with until I was in my 80s.  You know, like sitting on a toilet. To give you a glimpse of recent days in our home, the following is an incomplete list of normal everyday things breast cancer has made it necessary for Corey to help me with. Walking. Sitting down. Repositioning myself in my chair. Standing up. Eating. Scratching my itchy nose when my hands couldn’t reach that far. (When I was coming out of anesthesia this…
