What more can I do for him?

He sits at the table pouring over books. Piles and piles of books, preparing to answer many questions today.  He writes down notes and studies them.  He goes to Adoration to pray for wisdom.  God's will  be done.  But that is not all. Countless nights he is reading and revising, chapter after chapter of his dissertation.  Years in the works.  Almost done.  And he works too.  He is incredible at his job.  I have gotten to witness him at work; give talks with him.  He is so gifted at what he does.  He has a charismatic personality and I am not just saying that because I am his wife ;)

Not only that, he is an amazing father and wonder husband.  He is an incredible man of God.  He does dishes without being asked.  He makes the bed.  He allows me to run off, literally, for hours, chasing down the dream of a marathon. 

I love my husband.  I am blessed to be married to him.  And, on days like today, I wonder, what more can I do for him?  He does so much for me, for our family, for others.  My contribution to our family seems so small compared to all of the sacrifices he makes for us.

What more can I do for him?  How do I love him better? Support him better?

Oh, I have a few ideas:

1.  Tell him I believe in him.
2. Pray for him.
3. Root my day in prayer.
4.  Do my vocation better.  Be the best wife, mom and homeschooler I can be.
5. Tell him I love him more.
6. Love him in his Love Language more.
7. Dust these books off and put them into practice again:
                - The Power of a Praying Wife
                 - The Love Dare
8. Thank him for all he does for me and our boys!


  1. Aww. He sounds like a great man.

    And you are a great wife to do all those things for him.

  2. Awww, you are so sweet! And he's such a good man of God. I'm thinking of one thing I could do more often that would really make my husband happy...maybe that would work for yours too. They say it's a great stress reliever :)

  3. Sweet you are! I bet he does all those things to help you because he loves you so much! What a wonderful couple you are!

    And now, you have inspired me to go over to the love dare!

    One a side is the training going?

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48

There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  

About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

Yonanas and a yummy protein chocolate peanut butter ice cream

I have to admit, I have a sweet tooth.  A big sweet tooth.  I blame it on genetics.  My dad loves sweets and I think my grandmother, his mother, subsisted only on foods that contained sugar.  But, when you are working on eating healthy and bringing the whole family along with you, things like ice cream, cookies and cakes have to replaced by something better.

So, when Lena from JOYfilled family posted about the Yonanas she got, I wanted to try it!  Yonanas makes "ice cream" from frozen bananas.  I have heard of making "ice cream" this way before and I have tried it in our blended, but it usually came out quite liquidy.  So, when we got a gift card for Amazon, I knew exactly what I wanted to buy.

I have used the Yonanas several times and I love it!!  The consistency of the "ice cream" is very smooth, light and creamy.  My 4 year old, who is a very picky eater, loves his new "ice cream."  Now, my older boys could not be fooled . . . they immediatel…
