Thanks so much to author Bethany Jett for hosting this week’s blog, Called to the Sidelines, on her site, BethanyJett.com! The following is an excerpt; to read the full blog, click here. For more on Bethany, see below.
Instead of our marriage being the well-timed relay race I had imagined, it was more like a three-legged race—with Robby carrying most of the weight. Or, on my worst days, he was doing all the running by himself, while I sat on the sidelines. I felt like asking God, “What value am I adding to this marriage?”
It has taken me years to understand what God has been doing in my life….
I no longer take good days for granted, but I don’t worry over the bad days, either. I know that Robby cares more about my wellbeing than what I can do for him. And we both know that God will get us through whatever hardships may come our way.

More on Bethany Jett:
I met Bethany at the Florida Christian Writers Conference in 2015, and she blew me away with her contagious joy. She’s the kind of person you just want to be friends with. A few months later, I joined her Serious Writer Academy, and she helped me get prepared for the 2016 writers conference (not a small feat). I then read Bethany’s book, The Cinderella Rule, and I wished I had read it when I was younger.
If you know any teenage girls, you definitely want to get them The Cinderella Rule. If you’re married, you may want to follow Bethany’s blog where she posts about faith and family. And if you’re a writer, check out her writing resources, from her Academy to the Build Your Brand program. This is definitely one author you want to know.
