This week we take on the tricky topic of splitting household chores between husband and wife. I share three different thoughts for ways to approach this issue:
1) Evaluate what is important to you, both personally and as a couple.
2) Talk about your priorities and make a plan to tackle the work that needs to be done AS A TEAM. Not me versus you. You are a TEAM and together you can take on anything!
3) Change your attitude. From selfishness toward generosity. Reflect on where those angry resentful thoughts are truly coming from and learn to reject them, first in your own heart, but then in your words and actions.
Let me know your thoughts on this topic and what the split of household duties looks like inside of your marriage. Are you focused on “fairness” and winding up resentful and unhappy? Or are you learning to “let go” and open your heart to the joys has planned for you in your marital relationship when you approach it with a generous attitude of self-giving love?
This week I share a recent conversation I had with Diana von Glahn from The Faithful Traveler. Diana and her husband David produce a Catholic-themed travel TV show which is both beautiful and inspiring. Diana shares about their work as well as some her personal and professional challenges and triumphs. You will love what she shares!
This week’s challenge is to spend some time reflecting on what your thoughts and attitudes are toward household duties, and then spend some time in prayer. Open your heart to really hear what God wants to tell you for the benefit of your marriage.
I share feedback from listener Annie who adds her thoughts to our recent discussion on prayer. Also, three lovely ladies left reviews at iTunes this week. If you have the time, go there and leave your review/subscribe to the podcast now. Thank you!
