is-self-care-compatible-with-dying-to-self

Is Self-Care compatible with Christian Death-to-Self?  This question is especially important in a culture where self-care is preached as the solution to every problem and depression is still at an all time high.  Are we just not doing enough “self-care”? Or could dying-to-self actually be the solution to life?

“Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.  For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” – Matthew 16:24-25

Top 10 Things Parenthood has Taught me About God

Parenthood. My calling. For the longest time I couldn’t decide how I felt about that… 6 kids in, maybe I am finally starting to get it.

I never planned on being a mother. I never envisioned kids, chaos, or constantly feeding people. That wasn’t my dream… But God had a bigger one.

Not only did I need to bring these little souls into the world to accomplish their irreplaceable part in His grand design….

Not only did I need to love and be loved by my husband…

Not only did I need to learn from them more about myself…

More than all that… I am certain that the BIGGEST reason God called me to parenthood was to teach me about Himself…

To Those Experiencing Difficult Conflict Resolution in Marriage…

Possibly the most painful thing I’ve ever dealt with is the difference in opinion my husband and I have over conflict resolution. It might sound like a minor detail but since conflicts arise every day – parenting, changes of plans, miscommunications…. Some days being married feels like all you ever do is resolve conflict (Especially when you are bad at it)!

The worst part?

If you and your spouse resolve conflicts differently, minor issues become big problems really fast!
