I love Millennial and Gen X women! They’re the reason I started Wife Sense – the homemaker mentoring blog.
An article I came across sparked the idea. It was titled something like: “What YOU Can Learn From MY First Three Months Of Marriage.” I kid you not, I choked on my sweet tea and popped the snap on my mom-jeans in one big, ungraceful convulsion of astonishment.
After I recovered my composure and dignity, I went on a search. Who in the blogosphere is sharing what they’ve learned after 30 or 40 years of experience? I discovered there isn’t a lot of cross-generational communication. Boomers talk to other Boomers in an echo chamber and Millennials pool their limited experiences with other Millennials. That’s a shame for both. I thought “someone” should do something about that.
Wife Sense is a bridge to a generation of young women who are savvy enough to know they can be the beneficiaries of a wealth of experience from someone who’s been there, done that, married that, made that, burned that, birthed that, broke that, fixed that, killed that, raised that, dodged that, saved that, quit that, heard that, seen that, and learned from all that. And I share it with tell-it-to-you-straight talk and a sprinkle of humor. Just like a good friend should.
I was married for 13 years to a man who divorced me and presently, for 20+ years, to my Gary – a godly man who loves me well and whom I adore. Together we’ve raised 6 well-adjusted-kids-turned-Gen X/Millennials and have 6 sweet grands. I have an MBA that hasn’t seemed to hurt me any and a Ding Dong passion that has. I’ve been an international traveling career woman, a stay at home mom, and a veteran of 8 interstate relocations.
I’d love to help you in your journey through the highs and lows of making a peaceful, healthy home for the people who mean the most to you. For the record, I consider figuring out how to make your dog vomit up a plastic Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage wrapper he snatched out of the trash can, a low. So low.
Please join my email list so we can get to know each other. I mean, really, how many granny friends do you have? 😉
