Keeping Joy in my Ministry Marriage Part 2

Asking for help is not something I do easily. I can find myself circling the “shame spiral” as we lovingly call it in our house, where I have taken on too much, am not willing to ask for help, and martyr myself to get everything completed well and on time. It’s a mix of not wanting to inconvenience anyone and also not wanting to admit that I can’t do it. I’ve always been an independent person and I value it pretty highly. Admitting I’m not the best person to accomplish something has always been hard and continues to be to this day.

About Cara Kipp

After Cara and her husband, Adam, ministered in a small-town church for almost fifteen years, Adam is now the Executive Director of RHMA. The town they live in is small, but sadly not small enough that she can raise chickens. However, she is raising three plucky kids and a six-toed cat. Since being saved as a teenager, she’s been involved with the local church, using her passion for women and intergenerational ministry in church planting and church strengthening. She has a passion for Jesus, reading, teaching middle school, and coffee.
