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.

I am someone who worries. I try not to, but fear is a thorn in my side. Some fears are rational, some are not. Responsibilities and things in life that I can’t control will cause me to fear. Fears are a daily struggle of mine in different areas of my life. My marriage is no exception. Here are a few: Fear that I am not the wife God has called me to be. I do not believe that every woman is made to be a wife. I am, so I want to honor God in my role as a wife. […]

The days are long but the years are short… This is my mantra.  I heard it not too long ago and it depicts life as a mother of little ones perfectly. As a contributor here at Unveiled Wife, my goal is to be honest and open with you. That is, afterall, what it means to be “unveiled”, right?  Well, my biggest struggle lately as a wife has not been anything with communication, or intimacy, or handling finances…. nope. My biggest struggle in my marriage has been being a mom to 3 little children. Please read carefully here: I LOVE BEING […]

I have been reading a book titled Team Us by Ashleigh Slater and I just recently shared my review with you, which you can read HERE! I have a special article for you from the author! Ashleigh desired to share with you 5 strategies that will help you thrive in your marriage. Ashleigh writes: Last summer I tried to convince my husband Ted that we should apply for the TV show The Amazing Race. In my mind, it would’ve been the ultimate marriage retreat: world travel, dedicated time away together, and an array of team-building “activities.” A jackpot of shared experiences as a […]

Marriage requires a ton of investment and intentional growth. My husband and I have faced our share of challenges and I am confident will continue to face them, ones that both weaken us and help us grow. One of the greatest struggles we have encountered comes naturally to think about, but is difficult see happen in our relationship and that is seeing us and believing we are a team! As husband and wife, we aim to be a team, we desire to work together in all areas of life, and we are passionate about experiencing marriage together in a joyful […]

I use to believe I should not talk about sex. Even though my husband and I were married, I thought that was an area of our life we were supposed to keep silent about. The problem, however was that my husband and I were not having sex. We had issues with this part of our relationship and because we felt uncomfortable talking about it, we had a challenging time finding healing. This contributed to more pain and isolation in our marriage. Years later, my husband and I have grown to understand the importance of talking about sex in an appropriate way, especially […]

Although I have been married for almost 8 years, our son is only 2. My husband and I haven’t really put thought into family Christmas traditions until now, since our boy is growing up and starting to understand more. Up until now we had always just adopted the family traditions that our parents had begun so long ago. Now that our family is expanding and maturing we decided to make a few traditions of our own. It is so nice to have sites like Pinterest to help with ideation! As I was searching for inspiration I decided to make a […]

As the Unveiled Wife community continues to encourage celebrity wives, I think it is important to re-address what this means. We use our words to bring encouragement to women who are under persistent scrutiny as the public idolizes and yet often times attacks the choices celebrities make whether in their career, before the public, or in their personal life. Our goal is to lift them up in prayer, remind them of their value and most importantly share with them that God loves them. A celebrity wife is not just an actress, a celebrity wife can be anyone who is in the […]

As soon as I said it… I regretted it. I had been chit-chatting with a neighbor when our topic turned towards marriage. We began to share secrets for getting our spouses to do what we want. At that moment I didn’t speak out against manipulation, but instead I shared how stubborn I can become in order to get my way. I spoke unkindly about my husband and dishonored our marriage. As soon as I said it… I regretted it. The dinner standoff had been intense. It was my four-year-old against the rest of the family… and he was winning. My husband […]

Whenever I see a sports game on television such as football, I also see the cheerleaders dance across the screen. There is a part of me that never understood the importance of cheerleaders. They appeared to be so happy, so healthy, so beautiful, which were never adjectives I would have used to describe myself as I was growing up. Seeing them flare up my insecurities as a woman. Instead of taking the time to understand the value of cheerleaders, I opted to accept a negative view of their role in the sports arena; wishing that their presence would one day […]

As I sat in church Sunday morning the words from my pastor pierced my heart. A perspective I have never considered before revealed a part of my character I know well, but hate to acknowledge. First, I ask that you take a moment to review the Scripture shared by my pastor and then I will explain. Luke 16:19-31 19 “Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. 20 And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, 21 and longing to be […]

A few wives in our community recently asked for encouragement and resources regarding husband’s with ADD or Asperger’s. I do not have any personal experience with this type of situation so I reached out and asked the Unveiled Wife Community on Facebook for some help. It was a joy to see over 200 of you take the time to share your story and add some encouragement for wives enduring a similar situation. One of the top comments on the thread that seemed to resonate with many other wives was by CJ: Hubby with ADHD here. It’s difficult. I can get […]
