My Story

These posts are manly about my life story and testimony.

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 […]

I use to struggle with consuming thoughts of doubt, unsure if my husband and I were truly in love. This doubt haunted me! Those first four years of marriage were the most trying. Instead of feeling fulfilled that I was finally a wife in a happily-ever-after kind of love relationship, I found myself in amidst a combat zone defending my life and sanity. I yearned to have a perfect marriage, a perfect life… I was unprepared for the challenges we faced as a couple… I often doubted our love and wondered… Is my marriage a mistake? It is incredibly difficult […]

March 6th 2013, I woke up to a sight I had never seen before. I could see my nose! At first I thought I was just a bit cross-eyed and would snap back to normal once I fully woke up. However, after a few hours of being able to see my nose in my field of vision I began to worry. Do I have a tumor pushing my eyes closer together? Am I having a bad reaction to the antibiotic I was taking? Am I going blind? At a time when I was experiencing an intense amount of anxiety, I […]

Not too long ago a brave Unveiled Wife Contributor, Shannon Chilson, transparently shared her personal struggle with pornography.  Her words resonated with me and many other women. It is an issue that isn’t really talked about, especially in Christian environments, the very places we desire to find help from our vices. We need to address the issue of pornography and the truth that women are just as tempted to sin sexually as men are.  Our culture has ingrained in our minds that pornography is a man’s struggle. It is indeed a man’s struggle, and my prayer is that a revolution happens where men stand against this […]

I was recently invited to a local gathering for business women.  I admit I was a little intimated to go, unsure of what to expect, yet eager to meet other women passionate about what they do.  We all need the encouraging friendships, am I right?! I knew if I went I would be meeting new friends, something that has always been a little challenging for me, but I didn’t want to show up fearful or timid.  I put my game face on, ready to shake hands and smile, a lot.  What I didn’t expect was the surprise encounter waiting for […]

I am lazy. I know this about myself.  Being lazy is not a quality I like to talk about or confront…it makes me feel awful.  I would rather live in denial and continue to live as I am, than face my struggle and overcome it…because, well, I’m lazy.  The work it will take to change seems daunting! I do not like this part of who I am, yet it is a trait I continue to feed with every choice I make to remain lazy…and it is ruining my marriage! The craving of a sluggard will be the death of him,    because his […]

The Lord has been showing me things about my character that I have a habit of justifying.  For some reason my justification does not sound just anymore. Instead I feel a conviction to repent. I hesitated to share this with you… I didn’t want everyone I have ever had a conversation with to read it and be hurt, wondering if I have talked about them behind their backs. I didn’t want people to view me as a mean person. I didn’t want to acknowledge I actually struggle with this, because then I will be admitting how much I failed as […]

I will cut to the chase on sharing with you how my husband found out about my secret affair… I told him. It was not easy, in fact it was a painful experience for both of us.  We were driving in the car when the conviction to come clean overwhelmed my heart.  I wanted to stuff it down into a dark crevice never to be unearthed. I wanted to accept the lie that I shouldn’t tell him, that it wouldn’t be worth it.  I wanted to pretend like it never happened. But more than that…I wanted the brokenness in my […]

Yes the video provided explains these three announcements, but I wanted to expand just a little more with some information that is important for you! #1 – Unveiled Wife Turns 3! Thank you so much for being a part of this community! I am humbled and honored to be able to provide such rich resources for you and I praise God for growing it as He has been. I began Unveiled Wife March 15, 2011 and had no idea what it would look like. I struggled to publish articles that were transparent, fearing that people would not accept me and […]

Tricia Goyer is a beautiful and talented woman. She is a wife, mama of six, grandma of two, and a best selling author.  In addition to writing books and articles on her blog triciagoyer.com, she hosts an online radio show called Living Inspired. I have had the privilege of being on the contributing team with Tricia at The Better Mom and have recently connected with her when she kindly invited me onto Living Inspired earlier this year. In this interview Tricia asked me some real and challenging questions. I started crying as I heard my own heart talk about Unveiled Wife […]

The Unveiled Wife Ministry has evolved over the years.  Many of the articles posted are related to marriage topics that are relevant and helpful to wives.  Looking at this title you may wonder what parabens have to do with marriage, but my words may surprise you! As I share on my About page {which you can read HERE} my husband and I could not have sex for the first four years of our marriage.  Pain seized my body every time that we attempted to have sex.  In November of 2010 my husband was reminded of a story we heard of a […]

I literally scratched my head as I struggled to title this article…as if doing so would help me find the right words.  There is just so much to be said, not just about my moment with Sally Clarkson, but my whole experience at Mom Heart! I will start with Sally… For several months leading up to the Mom Heart Conference I had corresponded with Sally over email, social media, and even by phone. I felt as if we had already been friends forever; she has a special way of drawing people in and letting them know they are valued.  Yet, […]
