Why do you care about helping wives maintain a healthy marriage?
I knew marriage was important. I looked at marriage as something of a fantasy since I was surrounded by strong women who had several unhealthy relationships. I was a boss. I was on the “”I don’t need a man committee” and yet I was immature, selfish and I wouldn’t have grown to be who I was created to be had I not learned to have a better relationship with my spouse; someone I was committed to and who was committed to me. When you learn how to grow together in partnership, in love, in life, you are doing something. Strong families, strong marriages, build strong children and strong communities.
What are two steps that wives can take immediately to start on a journey to having a healthy balance in their marriages?
The first step is self-assess. You can’t change anything or anyone except you. Take an inventory of what you are feeling and why. I did a speech at my 2020 conference and I talked about how so much of what we are dealing with in our adult lives is linked to our childhood. Yes, OUR childhood. So, start your self-assessment that far back and then next…which is even harder is be still, be silent and listen to your internal compass. I call it The Holy Spirit. Being still keeps you from reacting and forces you to think before you speak or act. In that stillness, journal what is revealed to you to start healing your marriage. Go back to why you fell in love and what he means to you. Oh! That was 3 things. (laughs)!
What’s next for you in 2020?
