Y’all, marriage is hard. I could write a book on the challenges that my husband, Steve, and I have faced since our marriage in 1996. But, you don’t want or need those details because if you’re married you know what I’m saying without me saying it. One thing I will say, though, is that I wish we knew back when we were first married the things we know now about how to have a healthy marriage. This is why I’ve create this blog. I’m far from a marriage expert, but between professional counseling, leading a marriage ministry, and surviving my own marriage struggles, I’m sharing my honest experiences with you in hopes that you can take away something that can strengthen your marriage.
I am ordained United Methodist clergy and I’ve been married to my husband, Steve, since 1996. We have a daughter who was born in 1999 and a son who was born in 2003. It was the struggle in my marriage that prompted me to begin a marriage ministry at Williamson’s Chapel UMC. This marriage ministry has been such a blessing to me and to those it has served (and it’s still growing!). Hopefully, the wisdom that comes from our ministry can pour into this blog and help other couples beyond our church walls. Please feel free to comment on posts here and even to subscribe – that’s what this is here for.
We also welcome guest bloggers so if you have a story to share please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blessings upon you and your marriage,
Rev. Monica Humpal
