Splash Pad Dates and Early Morning Devotions

The last time I was on a date was about 25 years ago. A few months ago I decided that I needed to start dating again. This time, I set my sights on dating my pastor. Of course, he’s the same man I dated 25 years ago, but he has changed and so have I. Dating the same man that I have known for the past 25 years has been an adventure that is both challenging and extremely rewarding.

It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and forget to nurture our relationships with our ministering husbands. Life gets in the way as we take care of children or other family members, plan church services and outreach ministries, and take care of the day-to-day needs that arise in our lives. Despite how hectic life often becomes, maintaining a strong marriage is vital to each of us as we seek to lead and provide an example of a strong, Godly marriage in the areas where we are called to serve.

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.
