Numerous demands placed on a woman’s time can feel overwhelming, even for the most ambitious and

energetic among us.

But gospel recording artist Kirk Franklin shares the benefits of me-time and celebrates his own wife’s

personal moments of refreshing.

In a new blog post titled He Maketh Me To Lie Down, Kirk said Tammy Franklin recently attended what

was intended to be a brief morning meeting with friends. But she ended up enjoying herself so much and

missing pre-planned family time—something that made her feel guilty.

“I stopped her on the phone and celebrated her for taking ‘Tammy Time.’ Time she definitely needed

away from our crazy family and time she’s definitely earned doing the hard work of a full time mom,”

Kirk wrote.

He continued, “But letting that title go for a few hours really made her feel unnecessary guilt, which — if

not released — can turn into resentment.”

The doting husband, that celebrated 19 years of marriage to Tammy in January, expresses his

appreciation for her dedication to him and the Franklin children.
