1. Kela…It is sad that some women miss this important fact of marriage. I love for my children to see how in love I am with my husband. Like you, I was a mother first then a wife and I had to learn to be a wife first then a mother after I got married. And twenty two years later…I still love being his wife first. It does take being intentional and you shared some great ways to do that. Thank you for the encouragement today.

    1. Thank you so much for commenting, Naomi!
      Thankfully we got married before I could really settle into my primary role as “mom”. Our daughter was 6 wks old.
      I think that this post has a couple of different dynamics. As much as I don’t really think of it in this term, I was a single mom! I guess I don’t because it was by MY choosing to be and not my husband’s choosing…but that’s a different story for another day!
      The other dynamic is the primary one of just simply being “his wife first”.

  2. Love this, Kela! My marriage comes before motherhood and boy, do I have to be intentional about it!

    Loved what you shared here, “Seek to be a positive influence in someone else’s marriage. This is where the teacher becomes the student. When we know that someone else is watching, it makes us mindful of our marriage. ” So true!

  3. This post really hit home to me. I tend to think the part a lot where you mentioned he can get it himself, I am tending to the kids. I have twins and tend to do things for them before all and it is something I think needs to be changed!! Thanks for the post!

  4. I almost didn’t read this. My eyes played tricks on me thinking it read MY FIRST WIFE. LOL

    Purposing to think about my husband will be my objective this week. This couldn’t have come at a better time for me!
