What is 3SW?

Why is this blog called 3SW?

The 3SW stands for 3 Strands Woven, and is one of the main themes of our life. Right after Rob and I got married back in 2002, we started attending a Sunday School class at a local church.  The name of the class was called “3 Strands Woven”.  That class was a true God-send in many ways.  We made friends in that class that are still dear friends to this day.  Rob had men who walked with him, strengthening his faith and encouraging him as he lead our family.  Stacy had women who helped her to grow as a wife, a mom, a disciple of Christ and a leader of women.

The theme of the class was modeled after a verse in the book of Ecclesiastes.

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.

A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” (Ecc 4:12)

God is that 3rd strand in our marriage and we have made that a priority since the day we said our vows.  He is the one that holds us together.

We’ve used this verse as a theme not only for our marriage, but in all of our relationships. God is the 3rd strand holding us together in a relationship with our daughter, with our family members, and with our friends. We want him to be the center of every relationship so that we can love him and love others well. We can’t do it on our own, so he holds it all together.
