Guest author Katie has opened up and shared the truth about being separated from her husband. I was blessed by her story, to know that even in hardships she trusts God. I am also encouraged to pray for Katie and her husband. I know there are other wives who have been through a separation or are currently experiencing separation and I hope that this article brings peace to your heart. Please join me in praying for marriages that are separated! Thank you Katie for being so transparent as you retell what you have experienced.
There was a point in my marriage that I would spend days praying that my husband would change. Really, for our last two years together I prayed this more than I prayed about anything else. In addition to my prayers I bought him every book I could find on being a better husband and a better father, probably dozens.

In August of this year he finally had enough, and called it quits.
About a month into our separation I was still praying essentially the same prayer.
“God please change him so we can work this out and be happy together, the girls need a father and I need a good husband.”
