Sadly, we live in a time where marriage is discounted. I don’t have to tell you that divorce rates are high. I am one of those statistics. So is my husband.

My first marriage failed. As in epic fail.

I married my high school sweetheart. We both made many mistakes. We dated longer than we were married. Over a decade later the wounds of that divorce are still incredibly painful through the child we share. The legacy of our divorce will forever affect our now teenage son.

Understand that divorce made my life seem impossible. That process was one of the darkest, most hopeless times of my life.

Sometimes, falling flat on our face is truly what we need. Healing eventually comes. As one of my sweet friends says, “when you hit rock bottom you have no where to go but up.”.

And then something happened. It changed me to the core. I now know what a good marriage looks like.

I do not have all of the answers about relationship or marriage advice. I won’t even pretend. Understand that I rely on the wisdom of those wiser than me. I learn from mistakes. I celebrate the victories. I REFUSE to walk around wounded.
