Before I share my heart here,
please know this post
is not easy for me.
I am a bit modest (to say the least).
I can talk about paint colors and furniture placement till the cows come home
let the subject turn to private matters and I turn to mush.
So why am I writing about such things now?
Because if just one of you can be reached by this it will be worth it!
If you answer yes to any of these questions,
we may just be BFF's before you know it.
1)Do you struggle between being a Christian and a PMS-crazed woman?
2) Do you feel ashamed complaining about things you would give your life up for?
3) Do you feel guilty not always being the giving wife you know he deserves?
Yep....I told you this would get a bit
For me anyways...ha!
I struggle to live as a godly woman, a good Mom, and a giving wife.
Often my favorite blogs become my worst enemy.
(Trying to live up to their standards and stats will only wear you)
Why me Lord?
Why am I such a mess?
I don't have the answers on PMS but I know two sources that do.
One ..The Bible.
Weird I know but trust me on this one.
Two...a friend named Lorraine Pintus.
She is the author and precious soul behind
I first heard of her during a radio talk show.
I sat in my car drenched in sweat and tears listening as she described me.
I never thought of myself as a woman who struggles with PMS....
who was I fooling?
Not my family nor my dear husband....just myself.
The most horrible symptoms of hormonal swings are often not the aches in our bodies,
but the assaults on our souls that rip our identity
and tear at the fabric of our noble calling as woman.
Lorraine shares her struggles through the challenges of womanhood. She provides practical and biblical wisdom on topics that many of us are afraid to share.
I love her honesty,
but most of all her biblical perspective on our crazy ride we call
Whewwww... I made it through this far.
Still with me?
" it IS possible to live as a godly woman even during hormonal hurricanes".
Thank you Lorraine!
"I can do everything through him who gives me strength"
Thank you Lord!
Does this hit home to any of you?
Want to hear more?
Oh I have something fun coming!
