Balance. It’s the buzzword of this generation.

In our hectic lives, everyone is searching for that elusive thing called “balance”, where we feel like we’re living out our priorities, we’re able to get the rest we need, but we’re still being purposeful.

What if the whole idea of finding balance is more like a millstone around your neck than it is a real thing to aim after, though?

Do you feel more like a maid than a wife and a mother? Are you married, but you’re wondering what all the fuss is about? Where is the spark, the connection, the passion you were supposed to feel?

That’s what I’m here for! I’ve been married for 26 years, and happily married for about 21. I know what loneliness in marriage feels like. I know what it is to feel “blah” and overwhelmed. But I didn’t stay that way!

And I also know that a lot of the tips we’re given to rejuvenate our marriages are more like “pat answers” that don’t work. Let’s go deeper. Let’s find that passion.

Will you join me?
