These past several days, I’ve been reminiscing about this past year of marriage. It’s been a pretty big year for us. A lot has changed. While Aaron and I were enjoying our anniversary dinner, we began discussing what we’ve each learned about marriage this year. I realized that I’ve learned four lessons about marriage.
Before we were married, I never realized that assessing our spiritual health was something we would have to do. (Now that I’m writing it out, it seems pretty obvious.) I was used to evaluating my own relationship with God, but I wasn’t accustomed to evaluating our pursuit of God as a couple.

I think that this Valentine’s Day will be my favorite because I actually… Continue reading Before I Was a Mom
My husband is turning me into an acts of service person. Every night we turn down the heat. (It’s a serious money saver my friends.) More often than not, one of us forgets to change the thermostat until just before we get in bed. The other night, Aaron was already snuggled under the covers, and… Continue reading Acts of Service
