Intimacy in Marriage

Encouraging Christian Women toward Healthy Sexual Intimacy

No Time for Your Husband? A Message for Work-at-Home Moms

Jill Hart at www.cwahm.com encourages work-at-home women and is the co-author of  "So You Want to Be a Work at Home Mom."  Jill and I swap ideas every now and then and are always looking for ways to learn and grow.

I recently wrote a post on her site titled Time with Your Husband -- Interruption or Opportunity.   While the message is geared to work-at-home moms, I do think there are nuggets of truth in it that reach to a broader group of wives.   Take a look and be encouraged.

Hey, I know the challenges of trying to make time for intimacy.  You will never hear me sugar coat how hard this can be, what with the way the calendar is always going renegade.  That's what I call it -- going renegade.  You know, when you as the wife and mom have to somehow figure out how to be in three places at the same time. (And still get other things done too... laundry, grocery shop, meal prep, etc.)

But relegating intimacy to the far corners of your relationship isn't a wise option either!  Anyway, I hope the post encourages you.  This one might as well (We Can't Have Sex Because The House Isn't Clean), and this one too (No Time For Sex. I Get It.) 

So, let me and Jill hear your voices... share about your struggles in making intimacy a priority, as well as any tips on moving it up the priority scale.
