Marriage Testimonies

In my book, The Unveiled Wife, specifically in Chapter 25 “The Getaway” I mention a story from my marriage where my husband and I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Maui. We were looking forward to the joyous celebration we would document, but we also hoped that getting away to Maui would be a time of healing and encountering intimacy in our relationship. During that time in our life, I never would have considered how to help another wife going through the ups and downs encountered in marriage. I was too self-focused and too concerned with discovering healing […]

This article is based on just one topic of many mentioned in my book The Unveiled Wife. I wanted to share about this topic more in-depth on my blog to give you all the more insight into one of the things I was dealing with as a young bride. Three years into my marriage, I was burdened beneath the weight of a secret that was tormenting me. I was convinced that I made a mistake getting married, not because I chose to marry my best friend, but rather because I was wrestling with the thought of being gay. I had never struggled […]

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 […]

I received this testimony from a wife in the Unveiled Wife Community, a wife who desired to remain anonymous. I am grateful for her bravery to share her story and I am confident it will inspire more wives in our community. She writes: I can finally sit here, look back on last year and share it with you. I’ve asked to remain anonymous, however I really felt I needed to share my story with all of the other wives. We’ve sought out help or improvements in our marriages that all lead us to Unveiled Wife. I’ve prayed with you, I’ve asked […]

My body was broken and it hindered me from being able to have sex with my husband. We suffered for years unable to physically connect as one flesh. I could count on one hand the amount of times we actually had intercourse in the first four years of our marriage, none of which were enjoyable. I tried pushing through the pain I experienced every time we tried to have sex, but nothing seemed to work. I hate that we even referred to having sex as “trying” when all I wanted, was for it to be completely fulfilling. The lack of […]

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 […]

But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Psalm 68:3 Truth be told, many of us read marriage blogs with the hope of finding that key to a happy, healthy marriage. What can we do differently, better, more intentionally to save our marriage, heal our marriage, strengthen our marriage, or improve our marriage? For a number of years, my own marriage was in the pit – a black hole of frustration and despair. I asked myself Are we going to make it? more often than I care to think about now. Was I neglecting […]

There is a kind of divorce more devastating than that of physical separation. Although It is quiet and subtle, it is also cold and fierce; freezing hearts and wounding love’s strongest warriors. This divorce is deceptive. It masks itself with methodical togetherness and shallow adoration while under the surface the heart’s lush green pastures wither away. Once fertile soil becomes dry and brown yielding weeds useful only for stoking the fires of conflict. Unlike the physical separation of legal divorce, this type of divorce keeps two lovers close in proximity while fastening a wedge between their hearts. It seeks to […]

On August 19th I celebrated seven years married to the man that amazes me, encourages me and loves me. He is my best friend and partner in everything and it all started with a walk down the aisle… Followed by a run! We got married in a beautiful outside setting. I was 18 and he was 19, so young and in love! It was mid August in upstate New York. The wild flowers were everywhere, the sunflowers were getting tall and the sun shined that warm glow on everything it touched. But on our wedding, the storm clouds rolled in […]

In October of 2012 I wrote an article for Unveiled Wife called “Finding the Truth about Yourself through Separation” In this article I spoke candidly on the pain of being separated from my husband and how I was working toward restoration even though my husband was not interested in the thought of restoring what we once had. Read original article here At that time, he would not speak to me unless it was a conversation about our girls, and even those conversations were few and far between. He also requested a job transfer which moved him out of state […]

If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (II Timothy 2:13 NKJV) This scripture speaks volumes about the Hope we have in God. Even when we don’t realize that hope is present, it is. Therefore, we can always live in hope. The other night, I was sitting with my husband talking about how much has changed in our lives this past year when suddenly I began to cry. I really didn’t know why I was crying because I wasn’t sad. I started to “think out loud”, as I like to call it… I began to realize why […]

Marriage is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. Living in Ethiopia with barely any electricity, limited communications, and parasites was a piece of cake compared to marriage. Like all women, I found the man who completed me, had the wedding of my dreams, and knew that God had brought us together for a purpose. But, no one ever explained after “I do.” Often, I heard of the “honeymoon” phase, but never really experienced it. Part of it was due to the fact that I am American and I moved and married a Canadian and felt very […]
