Reviews of Christian Marriage Books & Movies

I started reading marriage books to improve the condition of my relationship with my husband. I felt led to write reviews that included how each resource helped my marriage to encourage other couples to use some of these tools to promote growth in their relationships and to give better understanding of what each resource is. I want to urge all husbands and wives to nurture their marriages by choosing the right resources based on their needs.

I had the opportunity to attend Women of Faith this year in Anaheim, Ca. Now just to be clear, this event was not a marriage event/conference, it was specifically to encourage women. I felt compelled to address that right away since most of my reviews cover marriage material whether books, movies, or conferences. And yet, I felt so revived leaving the Women of Faith event and with a handful of notes that will surely have an impact on my marriage. I hope this review not only gives you insight into the event, but also excites you about attending one in […]

Recently I had the opportunity to attend WiMS (Women in Ministry Summit) hosted by Logos. It was a one day event where nearly 50 women gathered and encouraged one another in the different passions we all have that ultimately support one goal: Glorifying God! I felt honored to be among such spiritually mature women of faith. It was great to meet these women, some of whom I have been building friendships with online for years. The above photo is just over half of the women who joined together! To sit with these women and hear how The Lord is using them effectively […]

You have an incredible gift, the gift of learning. We all learn through experience as well as through reading and researching.  One of the greatest tools used in retraining behaviors, improving, breaking habits, or making adjustments in life is learning. The more educated we are about ourselves and about the issues that concern us, the better we are at making choices that benefit us and others. I use to struggle with pornography, and one way my perspective and desire changed about it came as I learned more about its devastating affects to my body/mind, learning what the industry is truly […]

I had the incredible honor of being able to interview Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow this week! As I woke up early Thursday morning, I was eager to chat with these two brave and godly women who are paving the way for Christians to openly discuss intimate issues. Dr. Juli Slattery wrote a book titled “No More Headaches” that revolutionized my perspective of sex in marriage and it was one of the first book reviews I have shared with the UW Community.  I highly recommend it to every wife I connect with. This week was a little rough.  My […]

Pulling Back The Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and The Longings Of A Woman’s Heart by Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery is a beautifully written, Biblical response to the rapidly growing trend of accepting and normalizing erotica, specifically 50 Shades of Grey, as well as addressing other issues that have to deal with sexual and emotional intimacy. {Check out my interview with Juli Slattery regarding sexual intimacy!} As much as this book is a powerful resource that confronts the issue of erotica, very specifically the series 50 Shades of Grey, Dannah Gresh points out, This book is about the spiritual battle for […]

Have you ever encountered negative comments from people about your marriage? You know, the comments that make you cringe inside as your heart begs you not to believe it!  I remember hearing quite a bit of negative comments from other wives just before I married, and sadly I still hear them to this day.  Comments suggesting that marriage is not bliss, that love does fade, and that happiness is the period of time before one is hitched to the old ball and chain. Unfortunately, these negative comments are not only shot towards wives, but moms as well.  As soon as […]

When I first started blogging I was not aware of who else was pouring their hearts over the web. I began searching for other women who had a passion to encourage others, while giving positive resources for marriage. One of the very first places I landed was Women Living Well. Every day I jumped on to read the words Courtney would post. She became a source of inspiration for me. Her zeal and love for God was evident, I liked that a lot. Over the course of about a year I connected with Courtney and we became friends. Her encouragement […]

Most of the resources and reviews I provide on Unveiled Wife are specifically promoted to help women in their role of being wives. My passion is to encourage wives to invest into their marriage through these resources because the content in them is empowering and life changing. Last year I became a mom. I realized very quickly after my son was born, that my role as a wife and as a mother both needed significant investment. These two roles work together in tandem to fulfill God’s beautiful design for my family. Neglecting one or both of these roles would dramatically […]

The first thing that captured my attention with this book was the title, Beyond Ordinary: When A Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough.  It immediately resonated with me because one thing that my husband and I have prayed for since our wedding is an extraordinary marriage.  However, with all the hardships presented in marriage it can be difficult to believe in extraordinary. I was so excited to read what Justin and Trisha Davis would share about, regarding marriage being beyond ordinary. I must also point out that I love the cover of this book! It brilliantly depicts a marriage story of a […]

In Lysa TerKeurst’s new book Unglued – Making Wise Choices In The Midst Of Raw Emotions she candidly shares stories of when she has become unglued, stories that any wife or mother can easily relate to!

This is the final chapter review for The Meaning Of Marriage – Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God by Timothy Keller.  I have really enjoyed this book and the depth that is exposed regarding marriage and singleness according to God’s Word.  I highly recommend that this book be on everyone’s bookshelf! Also, if you want to catch a glimpse of some of the chewy morsels from this book, please check out the other chapter reviews!  You can easily navigate to them via the buttons at the bottom of this page!
