Imagine you and your spouse decide to take a road trip to a destination that is really far away. You both decide this is where you want to go and are all in. As you set off on your journey, you come across some bumps in the road. Eventually, your spouse starts to doubt if he is going to make it. He begins to question if this place even exists. You still want to stick to the original plan, this is the place you both decided you wanted. Now you find yourselves at a crossroads. He wants to go one way and you want to go another.
Many of you are at a crossroads in your marriage. Your husband has decided to leave the LDS church either emotionally or physically. This wasn’t a part of your plan when you were sealed in the temple together.
We can feel very unhappy in our lives and marriages when our “plan” doesn’t match with our current reality. We can feel very hopeless and even stuck.
What if you could write a new plan?
One where your spouse walks on his path and you continue on yours. Luckily Heavenly Father has not given us the responsibility to be the judge of others, that is His job. He created us and understands us better than we know ourselves, it is only just that He is the judge. Our Savior gave us the great commandment to: “Love one another, as I have loved you.” Our job is to love like the Savior, to love without any conditions.
To love our spouse without any conditions, is the bravest kind of love.
This blog is devoted to helping us learn how to love this way, welcome.
Sometimes when we are in the middle of something painful, we can only see what is right in front of us, we can’t see outside of it. Coaching can help you see a different perspective, usually one of hope.
