Please take a second to read Stephanie’s post, Family Matters on her blog Dead and Domestic. She talks about us being a non-traditional family, how the church reacts to our situation, and the struggles that she faces dealing with it. She very honestly expresses:
I constantly feel the need to prove myself to everyone. To prove I am a good wife a[nd] mother, despite our situation and my past. It’s exhausting and stressful and something I am trying to overcome.
- Are you part of a non-traditional family?
- What difficulties does this present to you?
- How do we overcome our desire to “prove” ourselves?
