What's it like to be married to me?
Author Linda Dillow talks about the seven risky questions every wife should ask herself from her new book, "What's It Like to be Married to Me?"
A wife and especially a wife who is also a Mom, lives her life scattered and segmented. She sighs: "I never think about my marriage. My life is a treadmill, and I can’t stop running and think. I just move from one area of need to another. My children and job scream louder than my husband, so he gets the leftovers of me." (married 14 years)
Believe me, I understand. I had three children in three years, adopted a fourth when he was a teen, and had teenagers ages 13, 14,15 and 17. I can still feel that overwhelming scatteredness that made my head spin.
When life is wild, we don’t stop and think about our priorities. We don’t think about what is really important. We don’t take time to look at God’s Word and call out to Him, “Search my heart, O God!”
I realized I couldn’t wait until life slowed down to think about my marriage ….I had to do it now. So I got brave and asked myself risky questions like, "What is it like to be married to me?" God met me in the middle of the questions. Will you be brave and ask risky questions?
