with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I read a great post by a friend of mine about how they work the holidays, with she being Jewish and her husband coming from a Protestant background. Their different faith traditions make it so that they don’t have to decide where to spend Christmas morning. It also means that they get to expose their kids to two different sets of beliefs, and to help them to understand why they celebrate what they celebrate.
My husband and I share the same faith (Christianity)(Of the the “Jesus loves you and so do I” variety, not the “I want to judge you” variety). Having the same faith as my husband is important to me because I love that we can discuss our common faith and debate it and figure out how to forge our path. He’s also on staff at our church as the Director of Children and Families and it would be a little odd if I didn’t share the same faith.
We are pretty lucky (Ha!) that we only have to worry about my husband’s side of the family over the holidays because my side all does their own thing. (The “ha!” was sarcastic - there are some “issues” on my side of the family.)
Do you and your spouse share the same faith? Where do you spend the holidays? Who do you celebrate the holidays with?
