Keeping It Real This New Year…


by Joy In Our on Pinterest

I want to post something because it’s been awhile since I have. But my reserves are low and my motivation even more so. We have been caught in the middle of many situations requiring our constant attention. It has divided our time to the place where we can barely connect with each other, let alone others with whom God has placed in our lives.

I don’t want to burden you with our struggles. We all have them. But what I do want you to know is that we still are committed to helping marriages grow stronger. Even though my keyboard has been silent, there isn’t a day that I’m not asking God if there is something He would have me share with you.

This season for us matches the weather outside–it’s gray, cold and dreary. We know the sun will shine again, but for now we’re doing what we need to do for us and for those to whom we are responsible.

Happy New Year, and thank you for understanding our lack of attention lately. If you think about us, we’d appreciate your prayers as we continue down this road.

Until next time…

    We’re sorry you’re going through such a dark time. Please know we will be praying for you. We’ve been there and the song “Because He Lives, I Can Face Tomorrow” has helped me get through them until the sun is shining again. Thank you for all you do to encourage marriages.

    Debi… so sorry you are going through a difficult time right now. Life sure can deliver tough times to us on this side of Heaven. I pray the Lord brings good out of all you are going through, and that you and Tom come out all the more stronger and deeply committed to God and to each other. I’m praying for you, my friend. Love you MUCH!!! – Cindy (
