The last 6 months have flown by! I am super excited to share some of what I have been working on the last few months. There are moments that I want to just SCREAM with excitement because I am so excited about what I am learning, what new adventure I am going to go on and that I finally found that missing link I was looking for. For a long time I have been feeling out of sorts. Not sure where or what the feeling was coming from. It left me kind of in a place of feeling lost. I had been driven for many years by different speaking events and teaching opportunities, but the last couple of years my passion for the specific field I was teaching in was slowly diminishing. And then one day my dear friend reminded me about something. I asked her if she felt I had a passion about anything. She was quick to answer, yes you have always been passionate about your marriage. In that moment I realized I had allowed life to quiet my passion some and had not been putting my husband and our marriage first. And from that moment on I went on a mission. I owe this dear friend of mine so much! Not only did she reignite a passion I have always had deep in my soul; she also introduced to me knowledge that has forever changed me, my marriage, and ignited my passion to share it with the world!
Because of this passion I put a book club together with women whom I have been associated with from all aspects of my life. It has been awesome! I have never done a book club nor have I ever participated in a book club. Many have found out about our book club and are curious, so it looks like we maybe doing more! It is hard for me to contain my excitement over this knowledge. I have had so many ah ha moments.
I have watched dear friends struggle with being happy in their marriages. I have watched marriages slowly fall apart, and some not so slowly. It has broken my heart and was part of the reason I started my search. I knew there had to be more. Marriage between man and woman is ordained of God and with him at the helm there has to be away for us to succeed. But the worlds way is so far from Gods way. I truly feel I have been introduced to a rare pearl. I believe with every fiber of my being that we are meant to be happy, to have joy, and to experience an incredible partnership between husband and wife. This union of marriage is meant to bring us the truest form of happiness there is. We just have to work on doing our "part" in partnership.
