Normally my Friday blog is all about equipping God-centered entrepreneurs to pursue success God’s way and Hustle with Heart.
Today I’m getting personal: Today Brian and I celebrate our 💜27th wedding anniversary💜!
Notice I didn’t say “wedded bliss,” because while there have been many, many moments of bliss (two of them are @haileyyryann and @camrynharrigan), it’s not been 100% blissful 😆
Coming from divorced families, it could have been easy to make divorce an option.
Instead, our strong will and grit (and love, yes love) kept our commitment intact.
And then came Jesus.
Only God could have “blessed the broken road” that led us to each other. Still, it wasn’t until we gave our lives to Him that we surrendered the reigns. Let me share the ripple effect.
October 2014: When driving and striving for achievement & results left me struggling & unfulfilled, a loving mentor (fondly known as The Velvet Hammer in my book Pursuing Success God’s Way), led me to Christ, saying: “You don’t know who you are or WHOSE you are. Do you have a relationship with Jesus?”
I surrendered my life that day, and over time, He transformed me into the wife (and business owner) He made me to be.
February 2016: At financial (and marital) rock bottom, we took @daveramsey Financial Peace University class at @cheschurch. Shortly thereafter, Brian began attending church with me and volunteering with Summit Men.
October 2017: Brian surrendered His life to Christ (perhaps before, but that was when he acknowledged it to me).
The rest is history. No matter what befalls us, our surrender to Him has made all the difference.
So today I celebrate with my non-social media husband and enjoy the last few days of our (safe) family getaway. There’s no one I’d rather share life with!
