I’m speaking this weekend in beautiful Collingwood, Ontario, at the Blue Mountain Resort, with my husband for a Weekend to Remember conference.


The conferences are all over North America, put on by FamilyLife. And they’re awesome.

Tonight’s was on the five threats to marriage (done by Walt and Anne, the other speakers), and communication (done by Keith and me).


I want to give you one thought, told by Anne, that I thought was brilliant:

We judge ourselves by our intentions. We judge our spouses by their actions. No wonder we think we’re better!

Isn’t that the truth? If we’re going to build a good marriage, it’s time to start being honest, and stop trying to achieve this 50/50 balance, where he does his part and I do mine. If you’re trying to get to 50/50, you’ll never achieve it, because you can’t honestly judge what you’re both doing. You’ll always overestimate yourself.

So instead, concentrate on being the best wife you can be!

Here’s me saying it (I was having a REALLY BAD HAIR DAY, so no comments on that, please):

Have a great weekend!
