2015 IS HERE! And many of us, if not all of us, have made resolutions that will help us become the women we desire to be, the women God desires us to be! Some of us may have even made marriage resolutions or set goals to make a positive difference as a wife in the new year. If you haven’t, it is not too late to consider some! My heart and passion is to encourage wives to fulfill their role in marriage, to understand the God-given purpose we have as wives, and to challenge us all to embrace intimacy in […]

For the first few years of marriage, I never considered that my husband had become an idol in my life. I didn’t recognize just how much I was relying on him to fulfill my needs. Instead of going to God through prayer and trusting in Him to guide me through life, I placed more responsibility on my husband to play the role of God in my life. I would seek my husband for wisdom, encouragement, love, comfort, entertainment, and even prayer. I don’t believe it is a bad thing to seek to gain those things from my husband as long […]

Psalm 86. Before I go on, would you take a minute to open up your Bible and read Psalm 86 or click HERE to read it? There it was…one line that stood out boldly from the rest. Verse 5. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive…“ David penned that God is ready to forgive. I had to stop at this point and reread it. Feeling compelled by the Holy Spirit I evaluated my heart, Am I ready to forgive? The truth is I’m am not always ready to forgive, especially in my relationship with my husband. There have […]

No More Headaches, Enjoying Sex and Intimacy In Marriage is the number one book on my list of great reads! Dr. Juli Slattery encompasses the gift of sex God has created within the boundaries of marriage, sharing examples of her own marriage, as well as others marital testimonials. Each story is unique, yet relatable and relative, provoking the reader to examine his/her own marriage. She dives into heavy topics without hesitation, providing wisdom and knowledge about what is permissible within the covenant of marriage, not with black and white rules, but allowing the reader to comprehend and conclude for themselves […]

Dear Robbie, I love you so much and I have been so grateful that we have started implementing a date night. No matter what it is we are doing, it really is good to get out and not just sit in front of the TV and you playing a game or me doing something else. It’s good to be with each other and enjoy each other as a couple; we need to continue to do this even when we do have a kid. I am so glad we have such a good marriage, and that you are such a wonderful […]

I was recently encouraged by my friend Angie from Redeeming Childbirth to make a worship playlist to play during labor and delivery. Her passion is to inspire pregnant women to invite God into the process of bringing a baby into the world, especially since He is the one who knit that baby together! Psalm 139:13-17 13 For you created my inmost being;     you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;     your works are wonderful,     I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you     when I was made in […]

Dear Alvin, If I could write you a thousand apologies I most certainly would. I would change everything negative into positive. I have been so selfish, trying to hurt you the way you have hurt me. I realize how empty my life is without you in it. I wasn’t thinking about your heart and your happiness, I was only concerned with what I can do to hurt you and I accomplished that goal. You tried what you could to make me happy these past few months. You tried counseling, but I laughed in your face. You tried praying, but I […]

I am not the best at apologizing. It can be a challenge for me as my pride flares up and my desire for validation for my feelings instruct me to do anything else but apologize. To say the words… I’m sorry. I was wrong. Will you forgive me? …they all require a heart of humility. Something I desire, but do not always have. However, the times that I have prayed to God for help in this area, He graciously moves my heart to apologize. The impact an apology can on my family is beautiful as it reconciles us. Whether I […]

I had been at the doctor’s office for over an hour. Sitting across from me my doctor explained to me the diagnosis and where to go from there. All I can remember is a gut-punch feeling that I would never be normal again. Stuck on autopilot as emotions ran wild in my heart, I made it home safely. My husband was sitting at the kitchen table when I walked in. I can recall the moment as if it happened in slow motion. Still seated in his chair he pushed it out from the table and made eye contact with me […]

I really love being pregnant! I am almost full term with my second baby and the joy in my heart is bursting at the seams. Sure being pregnant can be challenging. There are things that are a potential risk that should be avoided for the health of the baby, simple things become uncomfortable like sitting and laying down, and then there is the anxiety of not knowing if baby is perfect. In fact, just last week during a routine appointment we heard an irregular heartbeat. We were shocked and scared for what it meant, but thankfully the doctors were able […]

Darling Don, I write this letter out of a deep desire to grow. I have never encountered such deep and abiding love and devotion and it scares me. My old wounds and baggage have a way of showing up and it takes work to get through the feelings and emotions. The insecurities and fears. Yet, there you are, constant and ever present. Loving me through it all. Your patience, devotion and understanding are treasures for me. God surely shows me His love through you – a loving husband. He shows you His love through me, a wife who wants to […]
