My Husband Doesn’t Support Me

We should always be willing to listen to the other side and come up with a win-win solution. But that doesn’t always work. What do you do if your husband doesn’t support you?

My Children Exist Because of Michael Jackson


On the night of MJ’s death I donned my highschool Beat It jacket one last time and took this pic.

I know it’s not theologically sound to say that my children exist because of Michael Jackson, but let me explain.

I was a Michael Jackson Freak. That’s what people called me, that’s how I behaved,and that’s the name I enjoyed being called. I spent my allowance on every little MJ paraphernalia that I could get my hands on. I was smart enough to save some of the items even though I had NO CLUE that Ebay would be in existence 25 years later! Where’s my digital camera?!

How Should I Handle This?


There are times when I’m not feeling the love; times when I give so much I’m not trying to give anymore.

My children all have their agendas and needs. My husband, God bless him, works 10-12 hours a day in restraurant management. His first love, calling and passion is Pastoring. But since the congregation is still growing he has had to go back to the restraurant to supplement his income.

This means that I’m primarily the one who chauffers, delegates, disciplines, cooks, cleans, oversees, yells, and takes care of the house, children, garden, landscape and homeschool. (He does handle the groceries and finances.) All of this in addition to my coaching business. So on Saturdays I want to leave the home to go sit at my other office-WholeFoods-and plan my week, veg out, catch up on some work….breathe. He usually has that same plan for himself.

Most of the time our oldest son has something going on, so he’s not home to babysit and because we live away from our family we don’t have a family member to drop them off. I don’t like asking friends to babysit our 5 kids all day on a Saturday. (Yes, I’m gone ALL DAY, from noon until 8pm, when I can get away with it.)

So the question is how should we handle this? I don’t want to alternate weekends and to be honest I don’t want to compromise-which is a very RARE stance for me. So every Saturday I leave and don’t care. Am I being selfish? Leave your honest comments.
