We All Need To Know

"What do you do when your spouse is NOT a Christ follower?"
I have been wanting to have someone guest post on this topic almost since the beginning of my blog. I could write about my own thoughts on it; but I believe it is so much more powerful from someone who is living it. (And doing it amazingly I might add!)

This is something WE ALL need to read; even if we are blessed to attend church with our spouses every Sunday. Why? Because Gretchen was transparent enough to allow us to see how "the church" impacts these relationships on so many levels.

Please take a minute to read this post! (Gretchen is actually guest posting for Amber at "His Girl's Blog" today.)

I would love to hear your thoughts after you read!

Blessings!

Fantastic post by Gretchen. I did, though, stop to thank God for my God-fearing husband. Gretchen is to be commended for her faithfulness to her husband and most importantly to her GOD. Great post.

Wow! Thanks for the sweet, sweet words. Encouragement to my soul. Amber was sweet to invite me to post--wonder why I haven't posted that at my place before...God's timing, I guess.

Great post, and needed by me as I inhabit the same territory. The one thing I pray for my son and for the children of my friends is that they wait for marriage until they find someone who shares their faith. It makes such a difference.

What an awesome post from Gretchen! My husband and I follow Christ in different ways, so this was a really interesting topic for me. He doesn't trust "church people" and I don't want to force him to do anything he doesn't want to do, so I go to church by myself and volunteer by myself. It's hard because I really want him to experience this with me. I don't feel like we should only have separate relationships with God. I feel we should also have one together. I've been working on figuring out how we can do this outside of church. We do pray together sometimes, so that's a start.
