As I was reflecting on my blog post topic for this month with you all, the Good Lord landed some great insights in front of me to re-inspire my love for my vocation. You see, with a busy mission and being in the weeds of entrepreneurship (or Catholicpreneurship as we like to call it) it is easy for me to want to run away from the true call of my vocation, or at least down play its amazing dynamism in the salvation of my soul and that of my family. So today I want to unpack with you some deep thoughts for you who are married and anyone in discernment of marriage — primarily to wake me up from my slumber and hopefully offer you some value in the time you spend reading this.

Let’s explore a few passages.
In one of the final, more emotional and less comical scenes in the comedy The Breakup, Brooke sits sobbing defeatedly on her bed as she pours out her broken heart to her ex-boyfriend, Gary. After listing off actions she habitually carried out to go above and beyond for him and their relationship, she wraps it all up with, “I don’t feel you appreciate me. And all I want is for you to just show me that you care.” Oh, Brooke. If only I could pounce through the screen and be your shoulder to cry on because, girl, I’ve been there and there are few girlfriends or wives who haven’t.
“Beloved, do not be surprised that a trial by fire is occurring among you.”
