« 31 Days of Scary Hope (day 2): the un-scary part | Main | From beer to eternity: yes, people change. I did. »



Came over from Emilys blog. The 3 things you pinpointed about your wife, friends, headaches, husband near women.... So me. Excited that God is leading me through this process now (in part from Grace for the Good Girl) glad to hear that victory/peace is possible. Thanks for sharing.

Love that you blog as well as your girls. So inspiring to see a family that makes a difference through words penned. Loved this story of the ah-ha moment. Gives hope.

Thanks for posting. Hits home as myself, my husband and our marriage is going through a transformation right now. I found encouragement in this post....how quickly God can transform a situation when He knows the moment is ripe for it. May you be blessed today.


Hi, I loved hearing what it's like to be married to me.. . really. You're family is lucky to have you. And we're all glad you wrote it down. Now my scary is a little less so . . .


Hi! I came over from Emily's blog :) I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this! I've just recently realized that I'm stuck in a place where deep down, I'm not believing or receiving the fullness of the Cross. Your post gives me hope that 1) I'm not the only one who has suffered with this and 2)I will overcome it in Christ! Blessings!


I think my husband could have written this post almost verbatim. I am so glad to know I am not the only woman in this world that suffers these things. This has been my "aha" year. I love this " yes, you can go your whole life “like this.” And sometimes a long, long time of “like this” is a necessary part of the hope." it is so very true! Thank you for sharing your story!

Wow! This encourages me so much in this HARD season that I have been in.

Clinging to scary hope, AGAIN, today!

Well, I just love this. "Her suffering killed me." This is powerfully written, all of it.


I didn't discover this truth until I was about 43 and it set me free from being a people pleaser. Life has turned from a working, striving, pleasing mentality to a grace full, abundant life freedom. Thanks for sharing your story. Loved it and I'm so happy your wife found peace.


Thank you for sharing. I was re-reading some of Emily's posts looking for encouragement. I was feeling undone and like I couldn't find peace. Amazing that tonight I choose to click over from Emily's post. Praise God. Thank you.
