My name is Jennifer and I began this BLOG to share my journey as a wife, unveiled, uncovered and wide open, to purge my heart of the pain I have encountered AND to encourage other women in the world who are, have been, or will soon be wives... READ MY STORY HERE

When I launched Unveiled Wife in 2011, it wasn’t long after that my husband and I realized there was a huge need for husbands to have a place they can go to for marriage resources. With passion to lead men of all ages, in any stage of life they are facing, my husband tackled that need by creating Husband Revolution. I am so proud of him for teaching and affirming husbands, all that The Lord is teaching him! He also has a great team of contributors adding invaluable content for other men to grab hold of and apply to their […]

I use to struggle with consuming thoughts of doubt, unsure if my husband and I were truly in love. This doubt haunted me! Those first four years of marriage were the most trying. Instead of feeling fulfilled that I was finally a wife in a happily-ever-after kind of love relationship, I found myself in amidst a combat zone defending my life and sanity. I yearned to have a perfect marriage, a perfect life… I was unprepared for the challenges we faced as a couple… I often doubted our love and wondered… Is my marriage a mistake? It is incredibly difficult […]

The Unveiled Wife is dedicated to encouraging wives, however, so many of us are or are soon-to-be mothers! So here is a post for those of you looking to celebrate the mom in your life! Are you looking for ideas to throw a Mustache Baby Shower? Below are some graphics I made for a shower I threw for my friend who loved the idea of having a mustache theme shower! Feel free to snag these and use them for yours too! My suggestion is print these out and put them in really neat frames!   Use this one for a game! […]

March 6th 2013, I woke up to a sight I had never seen before. I could see my nose! At first I thought I was just a bit cross-eyed and would snap back to normal once I fully woke up. However, after a few hours of being able to see my nose in my field of vision I began to worry. Do I have a tumor pushing my eyes closer together? Am I having a bad reaction to the antibiotic I was taking? Am I going blind? At a time when I was experiencing an intense amount of anxiety, I […]

Not too long ago a brave Unveiled Wife Contributor, Shannon Chilson, transparently shared her personal struggle with pornography.  Her words resonated with me and many other women. It is an issue that isn’t really talked about, especially in Christian environments, the very places we desire to find help from our vices. We need to address the issue of pornography and the truth that women are just as tempted to sin sexually as men are.  Our culture has ingrained in our minds that pornography is a man’s struggle. It is indeed a man’s struggle, and my prayer is that a revolution happens where men stand against this […]

You have an incredible gift, the gift of learning. We all learn through experience as well as through reading and researching.  One of the greatest tools used in retraining behaviors, improving, breaking habits, or making adjustments in life is learning. The more educated we are about ourselves and about the issues that concern us, the better we are at making choices that benefit us and others. I use to struggle with pornography, and one way my perspective and desire changed about it came as I learned more about its devastating affects to my body/mind, learning what the industry is truly […]

I drew this out by hand as I asked God what I could say that would encourage someone else. This is what He wanted to say to you! Every husband and wife needs to be reminded at times that marriage is worth fighting for! Your marriage is worth fighting for! Despite the challenges, the trials, the hardships, it is all worth it. Marriage is a covenant and it is our responsibility to remain faithful to the vows we proclaimed. God can use it all for good and we must believe that! Hang in there friend. Stay strong. I invite you […]

I was recently invited to a local gathering for business women.  I admit I was a little intimated to go, unsure of what to expect, yet eager to meet other women passionate about what they do.  We all need the encouraging friendships, am I right?! I knew if I went I would be meeting new friends, something that has always been a little challenging for me, but I didn’t want to show up fearful or timid.  I put my game face on, ready to shake hands and smile, a lot.  What I didn’t expect was the surprise encounter waiting for […]

He walks in the room loudly when I just put the baby down. Really??! He walks by and steps on my toe. Really??! We are going to leave a friend’s house and just when we get our hands full, say good-bye, and juggle holding the baby, he remembers he has to go to the bathroom. Really??! He puts orange peelings in the kitchen sink without a garbage disposal and leaves them there. Really??! When we are running late and he has to do one more thing…real quick. Really??! Seriously??! Are you kidding me? Ugh!?! Wow!?? Yeah, right!? Moron, idiot, stupid… […]

I believe being involved in community is vital, especially for wives.  God used community to save my marriage when my husband and I were in the darkest days of our marriage.  We were suffering and could barely withstand the pressures and contention that was building up.  We stepped into a community that was centered on intentionally making Christ the foundation of marriage.  That community of believers became our best friends, and now we consider them family. God uses people to encourage, affirm, and keep others accountable to faith and to living life His way. I was recently invited by my […]

I am trying my hand at gardening.  It has been so fun to plant a wide variety of seeds, water them, and make sure sunlight is abundant.  My favorite part is witnessing the green sprout that pokes through the soil after many days of waiting patiently for them to burst! The Lord has been using my experience with gardening to reveal to me just how closely it relates to marriage and family.  I recommend you jump on over to The Better Mom to read more on this revelation God gave to me about planting the right kind of seeds.  Basically it is […]
