Dating Through the Seasons of Life

As our lives change, so do the ways that we interact with our spouses. It is one thing to overcome obstacles when dating as a couple of young twenty-year-olds, but quite another thing to try to fit dating in between meeting the needs of families, congregations, and full or part time jobs. It is easy to forget to take care of each other as we focus on dealing with the issues that arise in our daily lives

Last week I wrote about dating the pastor and talked about some of the ways that my husband and I attempt to find time for each other in the busyness of life in ministry. This is never easy but it is necessary if we want to nurture and cherish the love that we have for each other. There are many challenges we face along the way that we have to overcome through the grace that God gives us.

About Marcy Ardis

Marcy Ardis and her husband Gord live in the country near Chatham, Ontario. They met while attending Redeemer College in Ancaster, Ontario. After they got married, Marcy and Gord began to attend Louisville Baptist Church together as a family as this had been Marcy’s home church for several years. Not long after that, the minister at Louisville Baptist Church was getting ready to retire and he asked Gord to “shepherd his flock” when he retired. Gord has been the pastor at Louisville for nine years and he has also pastored at North Dresden Baptist Church for four and a half years. In addition, he volunteers on the executive of the Western Association of Baptist Churches. Marcy and Gord homeschool their daughter, teaching her that every day offers new learning opportunities. Marcy teaches at a high school in a nearby community. When she has free time she enjoys going for walks with her family, doing genealogical research, reading historical novels and local history books, learning about local architecture and exploring nearby provincial parks.
