Recently, I heard a statistic that 93% of marriages where a child is terminally ill resulted in divorce. This raised my curiosity so I researched a little more... to no surprise when a marriage is faced with a trial, change, or challenge the marriage is shaken.
Ryan and I don't have a perfect marriage, but we fight for one another! We have been together for 17 years and married for 10 years... when I look through pictures this is what I see..
Clearly we don't look exactly the same as we did when we got together. Our feelings towards one another aren't the same as when we first started dating.... There is lots that is different, but one BIG thing that is the same is God's role in our marriage! Marriage takes THREE! God's guidance, peace, grace, and love is essential!
Marriage takes work! It doesn't matter if you love where your marriage is at going into 2017 or just unsure on your marriage. In both situations it takes work, investment, and love!
Ryan and I will be attending a marriage conference that Metro Community Church is offering. The topic is on communication. It is an overnight stay and I have heard only wonderful things! We would love for you to join us! Getting our marriage where God wants it is key! The information is below.
