A New Week – A New Series

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a series, so we thought we’d offer a new one for you beginning tomorrow. The inspiration for this series was Debi spending 2 1/2 weeks with our daughter’s family following the birth of their third baby, our fifth grandchild. It was there where she was reminded of how difficult it is to cultivate romance in the midst of diapers and toddlers.

So we are naming this series: Diapers, Toddlers and Romance, Oh My! We have 6 parts to this series, and we pray you’ll invite everyone you know who is in this season of life to tune in. We have been praying for all who will hear, that God will use our words to help them navigate the rough waters of parenting little children.

Imagine if you will a little boat crossing the vast ocean. The water at times rises so high you think you’re going to tip. Then, there are the days where the water is warm, the sun is bright and all is going according to plan. Romance is possible on all these days because romance is a decision we make, not a feeling to pursue. Our aim with this series is to help you determine to romance your spouse regardless of the weather which changes from day to day.

Tomorrow’s forecast? Emotional and Exhausted, yet Expectant! But now we offer you some ideas on what’s happening around town.

    I’m so glad i am out of that season of our lives. But I remember it well two years apart in our itty bitty little house. I was tired and cranky a lot of the time and didn’t pay my spouse to much attention because I had three others needing me night and day. By God’s grace we made it. I hope your series will help out young couples and keep their romance alive.

    Looking forward to this series, as a mom of 2 including a new born baby I can relate to this all to much! Thank you!

    I was reminded anew this last month when we had our two sons and DILs with yong families visit. One for 3 1/2 weeks! That’s a tough time and you forget(at least I did!). Praying your message reaches those who need it most.
