Before I get into the things I love to do in my “free time” (ha), I want to take a minute to say how blessed and honored I am. First, Hubs and I were the first of our friends to get married. Let me tell you, this is the BEST!! We had no other weddings to compare ours to, we just marched to our own drummer through planning and decisions. Then everyone after us were “stealing” our ideas.
But truly the best part of getting married first is the fact that I have had the chance to sit down with my girlfriends, one at a time and in their turn, to talk through wedding advice, and marriage advice. I love having certain books on the ready (Love and Respect, and now Visionary Marriage, Sacred Marriage and hopefully one of two others in the very near future). I love discussing with them our decisions and encouraging them in their own. I’m not saying I’m a perfect wife – far from it. But I love being able to share my struggles and reassure my friends that it will be ok.
I also must say I love encouraging my friends to be Godly wives and to encourage and submit to their husband. To be honest, submission was NEVER something I thought I would be able to do, let alone encourage others. But I LOVE IT!! And I love God’s perfect plan for marriage and the roles of husband and wife in marriage.
Anyways, I look forward to documenting my encouragement and favorite reads instead of just mass emailing everyone I know. 😉
