  1. Love this post, Jennifer! This needs to be said, and you are the perfect person to say it. I love listening to women like you who explain how they got through it….with 12 kids! How do I say this nicely…. Most women would be better off searching for answers from women with successful marriages, than penning letters like they’re martyrs for doing what women have done since time began…caring for their husband, children, and home. If they would spend their time calling on the Lord for help and learning how to excel in the most important role God gave them, they wouldn’t feel self righteous about complaining, they’d instead be ecstatic because their husbands would adore and cherish and praise them! There are so many Godly role models like you saying “This is the way!” But they aren’t searching for answers, they are seeking praise from those who also like to complain about everything they do. I didn’t know these open letters existed, either. It’s sad

    1. Thank you so much for that encouragement, Janine. Those decisions we make in the early days of our marriage have such power to change the trajectory of our lives! I am so grateful for God’s giving such clear direction in His Word, and I marvel over the countless and unforeseen blessings that come as a result of embracing it.
