Respecting my Husband: His Family

I'm doing a 31 day series about Respecting my Husband! To read about why I should respect him and go to a list of all 31 days, please visit my 31 Days of Respecting my Husband post.

Day 5: Respecting His Family

This one is going to be difficult for me, because I have it SO EASY when it comes to Jordan's family. I could not have married into a better family for real. And I'm not just saying that. Those who know me know that I seriously adore my in-laws and all of the Shelleys. 

Regardless of how easy I have it with his family, I still need to give them respect and respect his relationship with them. EVERY family is different and does things differently, so I don't need to think he's weird just because he was taught to do something a certain way. 

Of course the most important thing is that we are focused on Christ and following Him, so if they were leading us astray from that it would not be okay. We would still show them love and respect them as people and as his parents, but it's possible to do that and not agree with or support everything someone does. That would certainly be difficult, though. Thankfully his family loves the Lord fervently and always point us to His Word when we go to them for advice. We are SO blessed by that. 

One thing that is important for me to remember is to respect time with his family. We don't live in the same city as them, so it's crucial to make time to talk to them and visit them. Not that we wouldn't want to in the first place, but it's easy to get caught up in everything we have to do at home and go too long without Skyping or visiting. I especially want to make sure that if and when the Lord blesses us with children that we involve them in their lives and keep them up to date with everything. We are only about an hour away though so that isn't too far. :)

Yes, Jordan is called to leave his family and be joined to me, but at the same time his mom will always be his mom, and his dad will always be his dad. That will never change. I want to respect that and encourage him to continue to go to them about issues, learn from their godly wisdom and advice, and always include them in our life. 

The Shelley side of the family! (Our nephew was in Danielle's belly, haha.)

See you tomorrow for Day 6 - Respecting my Husband: His Friends.

  2. What a blessing you are to us Ashley! So, so thankful for you! Love you!

  3. I know that you haven't had a comment in a while but I just have to say that I love these ways to respect my husband. This one in particular is a bit difficult for me because I don't get along well with all of my husband's family members. And sometimes I loose sight of God's calling to be respectful toward them regardless. Thank you for saying this so eloquently. I have a renewed motivation to be respectful toward his family because of it. ☺

I know there are lots of women like me out there who have done so much to have back their Husband, I am here to tell you all to search no further because the answer is right here.
