Love and Sickness – MBFLP 196

 

 

To love and to cherish … in sickness and in health

For most of us, getting married at our healthy young-adult peak, the thought of life-rattling sickness is just a theoretical thing … most of us haven’t suffered more than an annual flu or a sprained ankle. Yet living in a fallen world, we can count on encountering an injury, a serious illness, or some other medical issue that calls us to account for that promise. How do we show love in sickness – whether our mate’s the one under the weather, or we are?

We’ve been there (both of us) so join us for a full episode of reasons to show extra love – and ideas how to make it work – when there’s sickness in the family!

MBFLP – When There’s Sickness In The House

MBFLP - When There is Sickness

The traditional wedding vows promise to be faithful “in sickness and in health,” but often that’s not just the illness of the husband or wife–and not something to be treated with over-the-counter products. How do you manage a family and home when illness and injury strike? What do you do when a family member has surgery, cancer, high risk pregnancy or birth defects? This week, we talk about some practical ways to think about illness and how to keep the family moving through it, and we’re joined by our son Caleb who’s been through several medical challenges himself.
