Where would we be without our wonderful husbands?

Melissa @ Breath of Life

Wow! You're blessed with a great guy, there. I love Godly men (mine most of all!)


Obviously, he knows for you to be able to go to school, it must be a joint/family project. What a guy, indeed. Blessings on your classes and tests, Joanne.

Becky Jo

What a guy!!! Props to you Mr. Toben!!


What a guy! He's a keeper!

Good luck on your test. I know you'll do well.


I have to say that Russell would do exactly the same thing. In fact, when I tell him that Toben is doing this...he will be jealous. He was born to be a stay-at-home dad. However, I was not inclined to be the bread winner...I liked to be at home, too. He let me be the winner.


I agree with everyone above - what a great guy. And it seems like we all have some wonderful men in our lives. Good luck on your tests!


Way to go, good husband! I love that!

Yea Toben!

I am so glad to know you are having a great first I understand...intensive...whew!

Praying for endurance and that your mind will quiet once you hit the pillow after having it filled during the day.

Much love,


Jen Schrock

Is he available for hire? ;)


Husbands can be absolutely wonderful a lot of the time... especially when we ask for help!

3 cheers for Toben! Can't wait to hear about your class! praying for you from Paris this morning.


That's really sweet of him :)

Back-to-school Joanne is so busy! All the best with school. Have a great time!

Rachel Reeves

Isnt it funny how we can all of a sudden stop and realize how AWESOME our husbands are? Love it!
Way to go Toben!
