Special Guest! Faithe. Owning Our Choices in Life and Marriage ep 51 – Blue Skies and Green Pastures with Paula Adams
A conversation with my best friend Faithe about what she and I have learned about ourselves in our wise old age. If you're a 50+ woman, you can probably relate, if you're a younger mom, you might learn something! Both of us are Christians, have large families and homeschooled our kids. We have a lot in common in how we relate to the world and people even though we also have many differences in our upbringing . We discuss what motivated us to have the lives we have. Hope you'll join us as we try to make sense of life as menopausal women who did things differently than most of our peers. A few takeaways: Realize that even when you make choices that you feel you HAD to make, you still made a choice. Self-awareness helps you understand why you make decisions. Most decisions are made based on what we think is best for us at THAT TIME, not in the long term. Married people must learn to have compassion for their spouse's struggles and appreciate them. Being a controlling person never turns out good for anyone. We live in a society that rewards victims with more attention than those who quietly assume personal responsibility for their lives. God loves you and you can trust Him. — This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/blueskiesandgreenpastures/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/blueskiesandgreenpastures/support
