My Latest Skit Video – “A Scorekeeping Wife”

I started doing skits last week and have been getting a lot of great feedback.

Check out my latest video on my Youtube channel, April Cassidy:


A Scorekeeping Wife

  1. April, you really are a breath of fresh air! I love your heart to desire to be a peaceful and not a bitter wife. You encourage all of us to do the same. God bless you and this amazing ministry that is God given.
    Blessings to you, my sister in Jesus!

  2. That video brought tears to my eyes! You did an excellent job! Did you notice, as you watched it, the difference in your face between the two scenarios? You almost looked like a different person. Thanks for doing this!!

    1. Sherri,

      YES! Our whole countenance changes a lot depending on our mindset and attitude. My twin sister even noticed a big change in my countenance early in this journey. Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate it so much!

  3. Love the skits!!! It’s often hard to know what our situation looks like, and how to improve them. Skits are great teaching tools for those who are more hands on/visual learners.

    Thanks April

    1. L – I agree, I think that we can absorb truths from skits sometimes that are harder to absorb in other ways.

      Thanks so much for sharing your insights. 🙂

      Much love to you!

  4. I love this April! What a good way to show “the journey” in a practical way.

    I seriously had to laugh a little by seeing how ridiculous I seem sometimes. It’s sad too, but this skit was lighthearted enough that I could laugh as i recognized myself.

    Your facial expressions are priceless from the beginning and to the end. What a difference in the softness of your face as you showed two ways of handling things. This is what my husband must see in me and I do not even know it since I’m not looking at myself during these times.

    This is good knowledge in a practical way!!

    Thanks again!

    1. Cara,

      Maybe we all need to video ourselves more often so we can see how we look to our husbands and children! I’m glad this video was helpful. Yes, the facial expressions and tone of voice are SO important! What I communicated in the first part was completely different from the second part. It helps us to see what it is like to live with us and what our husbands see.

      I’m so glad this was really helpful. I think I may need to do a lot more skits!

      Much love,
      April <3

  5. This was so cute and funny! But sad how true for many of us sometimes! My husband definitely pulls his share of the load but I sometimes still hone in on one little thing (usually that he would take the kids in the evening instead of working on projects, so I can clean up the kitchen without distraction; or talk about emotions with me – lol) and forget how much he actually does.

    Like Greg, he has done (is currently in our case) huge home renovations, he has also been up to his shoulder in sewer which I’ve never touched, mows the grass immaculately, and even when, like last night, I was feeling overwhelmed and operating on flesh mode, he hung up all the hanging laundry, swept the kitchen and dining room and put the kids to bed, all after a 10 hr work day, and then tearing out a wall to build me a new bathroom.

    I love how you said “If he can make this awesome bathroom for me, the least I can do is keep it clean!” If I can hang on and keep my chin up while he works on the current project every evening for a few months, I’ll then be able to use that line while I do my laundry and clean the bathroom! 🙂 I love the smiling countenance in part two. <3

    1. ByGrace,

      I feel your pain! Major renovations are stressful. Even when they last just a few months. When they go on for years and years, it is extremely stressful. I started out this process a very impatient person. But, I do have to say, God used the renovations and constant mess and the long, long wait to help me grow a lot spiritually, once I began to allow Him to help me.

      There are times when we do have legitimate needs and we need to be able to ask for help. But I am so glad we can ask respectfully and treat our husbands with honor, even in those times.

      What a wonderful man you have there. I hope you write down all of the amazing things he has done for you. He obviously really loves you and your family a lot!

      I love having a smiling countenance! It is so beautiful and peaceful. And it’s free! 🙂

      Much love! Let me know how things go.

  6. Love the skit! Please keep them coming. Maybe one on feeling unloved because he doesn’t speak my love lang – that’s my biggest struggle.

  7. Love…love…love these and soooooo helpful as I’m very much a visual person. Please keep them coming!
    I’d really appreciate one on ‘respect’, I find it hard to understand what it looks like practically???
    Much love in Christ x x

  8. I LOVED it!!! I hope you keep doing these videos! They are really good. And so accurate lol unfortunately… I needed definitely to hear and watch this one ! Thank you!!

  9. April,

    This is wonderful! Thank you so much for making this. I have been guilty of being “a scorekeeping wife” and by doing that I thought I would somehow be able to force things to get better. After all, I deserved that, right? It’s easy to forget (or just fail to see) all the things that your partner is doing and often you can’t appreciate the effort and time that he put into it. I love how you pointed that out!

    It’s difficult to compare what each person is doing, because we all contribute in different ways. I’m pretty sure there would be things on my husband’s list (if he kept it) that I wouldn’t even think of! Because there are things I don’t even get to worry about as he just sorts them out. He doesn’t feel the need to mention it all or ask for recognition. Me, on the other hand, I like to keep him “updated” about the things I’ve done, just to make sure he will appreciate all the things I do and realise how lucky he is. And if I’m very tired, I will also make sure to let him know all the things he failed to do and I did them for him. And of course I won’t forget to mention how very tiring it was! Isn’t that so very thoughtful of me? I can see how anyone would feel very respected!

    I used to think that this kind of attitude would make things better. The truth is, even when the score is far from being even, if you respond in a negative way, how can that possibly make you (or anyone else) good? And complaining about it over and over again takes so much of our time and energy, why would we want to do that to ourselves?

    Thanks so much April for showing us we can choose to respond in a different way, a way that leads to peace, not just for us, but the whole family. This is so precious!

    Lots of love

    1. Tina,

      Yes! It is very easy to forget or take things for granted that our husbands do for us. Super easy. And it is very easy to direct our husband’s attention to all that we are doing. Yep!

      Yes, I think Greg and I had those same dynamics. Me telling him everything I did for him. And him not really mentioning a lot of things he did for me. He would just quietly do them, not seeking recognition.
      That is humbling!

      God actually gives us a command, as believers, that we are not to argue, grumble, or complain (Phil. 2:14-16). Complaining and being negative do so much damage. I had no idea for so long!

      I’m so glad this was a blessing.

      I’m planning to have a new skit come out tomorrow.

      Thanks for sharing your insights. Love hearing what you are learning!
      Much love!
