My Husband

I just wanted to let everyone know that I have an amazing husband! He wrote me a really sweet love letter today and I hope everyone is JEALOUS! lol!! This is my birthday week so he is so great with that sending me things and telling me great things all week.

On another note if anyone knows anybody that is looking for summer work I need to look for a sitter for 3 days a week for my three kids (possibly just the two little ones) I am willing to pay a decent amount that I have yet to figure out. Please spread the word to someone who is trust worthy and reliable. Thanks

Another Movie Night

So it has been a while since I have been so touched by a movie that I had to blog about it. Last night I stayed up until 3am to watch the movie Fireproof (Nathan ended up falling asleep). I cried, no actually I sobbed during the last 10 minutes of the movie. It was amazing I would highly recommend everyone to see it. Whether you are a believer or not, single, married, divorced, have a great marriage or a scarred one this will in some way touch you. Get past the corny acting in the beginning and really pay attention to the story behind the story.

Many of you already know that Nathan and I went through some really hard times in our own marriage and even separated (were very close to a divorce) when I was pregnant with Sammy and that is what it took to bring Nathan to turn to God and really give up his addictions and his demons so that he could focus on being a husband. But I also had to remember that God gives me chance after chance and still loves me and I needed to do the same for my husband. It took a long time but we are finally at a point that we can really confide in each other and have a very happy marriage. All because of God!

Watching this movie was like watching our fights right in front of us. Nathan and I watched it together again tonight and it affected me just the same. Amazed at what God can do because I wasn't only watching a movie I was watching what my life was and how God had changed it. All we had to do was give our life to him, trust him, and continue to confide in him. Some people may think that, that is serving a demanding God but if you have lived a life of fear,guilt,shame,addiction,sadness,lies,and defeat than it is easy.

Here is a link to the Love Dare book that is featured in the movie and the Fireproof my marriage website.
