Let’s face it gals – we enjoy our time with our friends. And I will be the first to sing the importance of having close relationships with safe female Christian confidantes.

Jill Hart at 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 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.
