Take a Step Back
It's easy to get so busy doing good things that we lose focus on what ultimately matters most: God, our spouses, and our families.
If this has happened to you, take a step back and just soak it in.
Pause for a moment, stand in bright sunshine, and notice the intense blue of the sky. Stop washing the dishes for a minute and look at your children. Really look at them, at how quickly they're growing and how rapidly they learn.
Give your spouse a 15-second kiss every day for a week. Take extra seconds to hug. Pay a compliment for something they do without being asked.
You might be amazed at how much these little things can do to make you feel more united in ministry!
