Encouragements For Wives

Encouragements For Wives are random articles intended to lift up wives including testimonies, inspirational images, quotes, etc. My hope is that wives would be empowered, no matter what condition their marriage is in, to remain committed to their husbands, pursue intimacy, and seek a God-centered relationship.

Prayer is important to me. It always has been. Even when my heart was hard, my faith was lacking, and I chose not to pray, I knew it was important. During that season of darkness, my husband remained faithful and prayed over us daily. I am so incredibly thankful for his strength to do this and I believe God heard my husband’s prayers, reconciling us and restoring our marriage. Although I have always viewed prayer as vital and believe there is power in prayer, I am usually wishing there is more I can do, whether in my marriage or for […]

Love is never boastful or proud. Love does not strut; it doesn’t have a swelled head. ~1 Corinthians 13 I would never confess to having a swelled head, but when I carefully inspect my life, my heart, and my motives, the sad truth is, I do. My pride can present itself in many ways, but it has taken up permanent residence in the areas of parenting and housework. I assume that my way is the only right way to do things and I give little regards to my husband’s preferences, desires, or suggestions. Being a mom to five children (all […]

God, Thank you for your unconditional love for me.  I am so undeserving, yet you pursue me daily!  Thank you for your grace and for your perfect provision.  I am so blessed and grateful for my life and for my husband’s life.   Thank for trusting us with each other’s hearts, blessing us with the covenant of marriage. You have given us an opportunity to love each other unconditionally and sometimes that is hard to do, but I ask Lord that you would help us to love like you love.  Please show me how to be a joyful wife, a compassionate wife, a […]

I was touring the city of Cincinnati, Ohio when the tour guide mentioned the Roebling suspension bridge above us. Built over the course of 10 years it was completed in 1866 and held the title of longest suspension bridge in the world. While gazing upon its beauty the tour guided proceeded with an interesting story that I believe can be applied to marriage. She mentioned that because the design of this bridge was such new technology people were terrified to trust whether it would actually hold them without breaking. So on opening day complimentary hot dogs and beer were served […]

The master bedroom should be a place for couples to relax, re-energize and enjoy each other. I had read an article many years ago stating this wonderful idea and it has stuck with me ever since. I have always tried to keep our bedroom a special place. I decorated the room with candles and kept the piles of clutter away. I would make the bed each morning. I hung pictures of our wedding on the wall. My husband and I also created a wonderful piece of art together by painting our bodies and pressing them onto a canvas, but you […]

CLICK HERE TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY I have been following Lysa Terkeurst for a few years now. Her transparency inspires me as she writes and teaches from the struggles she has experienced. I had the honor of interviewing Lysa and I am thrilled to be able to share it with you! Although we were separated by a few thousand miles, it felt as if we were in a quaint coffee shop discussing marriage and life together! Below is the interview! For any who would like more information, I have included a few show notes and resources mentioned in the interview! To […]

It was the golden hour.  You know it well – that last beautiful hour of golden, buttery light before the sun sets for the night.  We had just witnessed two dear friends become Mr. and Mrs. and the reception was in full swing.  The old barn that held so many memories was helping to build so many new ones that May 25th.  Love and redemption forever tied in with barn wood and donuts. As the light began to soften, people began trickling out to the field.  The event was marked by a large number of photographers.  We just can’t resist […]

This morning my husband rolled out of bed early to spend time at breakfast with a few good friends in town visiting. Our son had not been feeling well, so I stayed home to care for him. When my son woke up he stayed in my bed a little while longer soaking up the energy he would later expend. I opened my laptop and placed it on the bed next to my toddler, turning up the volume while Pandora played worship music. As my son lay calmly in bed I took advantage of the time to finally put the laundry […]

Whether you have been a part of the Unveiled Wife community since its birth or have just discovered this wonderful gem recently, I hope you are inspired through it! My heart’s desire is to use the internet to reach wives all around the world and share encouragement in one of the most important relationship we have: Marriage! The journey of marriage is not always easy, and for many of us we endure a lot of pain along the way. May UW be a gentle hug for you no matter where you are on your journey, letting you know you are […]

YOU + 2 = CHANGED LIVES At Women of Faith events this year alone, 1,175 women have told us they made a first-time decision to put their hope and faith in Jesus. After each event we’ve made a personal phone call to all those women; many have told us the only reason they came to Women of Faith at all was because someone invited them or gave them a seat. Why are we sharing this with you? Because we want to introduce to you a new outreach program. We call it… YOU + 2 We’re bringing From Survival to Revival across […]

It was midnight. I was wide-awake, palm to chin, tapping my finger against my cheek and contemplating my next move. What’s one more episode? I have nothing to do tomorrow. If I feel tired in the morning, I can just rest when the kids are napping. No big deal. Enticing thoughts of sexy, self assured Jack Bauer ran through my mind and before my conscience had time to refute my decision, I touched the screen on my iPad: “24,” S3:E1. I stuffed my earphones back in my ears and turned up the volume. Pulling the blanket over my head, I hid the glaring […]

Last year I really wanted to attend Women Of Faith, but unfortunately I was not able to make it. After hearing all about how it went, I did not want to miss the opportunity to attend this year! I am so excited to share with you that I will be attending TWO of the WOF events, one in Anaheim, CA and the other in Portland, OR. The theme for this year’s 2014 tour is “From Survival To Revival” which I think resonates in every woman’s heart. As much as I want to invite you to join me at one of […]
