Great news! Starting today, I’ll be a regular contributor on one of my favorite blogs, For the Family. Once a month I’ll share a new post there, designed to encourage and equip families with God’s truth, grace and love. I hope you’ll join me and all the other wonderful contributors, including Ruth Schwenk, Karen Ehman, Tricia Goyer, and many more.
Today’s post is a hot topic for me and many moms—seeing the tender side of our husbands, especially when life gets hectic. Join me on For the Family!
My husband isn’t big on romance. He doesn’t write poems or buy me flowers. The last time we had a candlelit dinner was during a power outage—with the kids, eating cereal.

Where did he go, anyway?
