  1. Hi, I just found your blog through SITS. I definitely don’t have your faith, but reading through your posts and your mom’s story really shines with your faith through every word. You have a wonderful blog!

    1. Thanks so much for that! I would love it if you sent me a friend request at SITS. I just started in that community yesterday and I’m still trying to find my way around.

  2. All other books I’ve read about being a “good wife” have left me feeling exhausted. I have to wonder if I am reading them the way the author intended. I’ll have to go and check out her blog.

    We’re reading the 5 Love Languages One Year Devotional together and it’s given us a lot to talk about.

    Thanks for posting Jennifer!

    1. Ugh, Johnlyn, I totally know what you mean! Definitely check out the blog The Time-Warp Wife. I think you’ll quickly discover Darlene has a way of motivating and encouraging without overwhelming. If you buy the book you’ll discover that Part 2 of The Good Wife’s Guide is very similar to your ebook, Feed Your Family, in that it also has clearly written, simple steps to take. Darlene makes it clear in her book that she’s not an organized person by nature, she says that she aims to have her house tidy but it’s OK for it to still look lived in. Darlene doesn’t want to turn anyone into June Cleaver, rather she wants to show you how to celebrate the woman that you were created to be. I hope I’ve cleared that up a little for you, but really, you want to check out her website.

      I’m so glad that the 5 Love Languages book is blessing you and your marriage! Nate and I just finished The Great Divorce and The Abolition of Man by CS. Lewis. We plan on starting Quitter by Jon Acuff next. Neither is really related to our marriage, but it’s still leading to great conversation and creating unity between us. God is good!

      1. Thanks for the details – I’ll check it out!

        Maybe I should look into something we could listen to together…but my mind wanders while I try to listen so I’d have to have the book and Wes could listen.
