2015 IS HERE! And many of us, if not all of us, have made resolutions that will help us become the women we desire to be, the women God desires us to be! Some of us may have even made marriage resolutions or set goals to make a positive difference as a wife in the new year. If you haven’t, it is not too late to consider some! My heart and passion is to encourage wives to fulfill their role in marriage, to understand the God-given purpose we have as wives, and to challenge us all to embrace intimacy in […]

I asked my husband what his favorite date was with me over the last ten years of us being together. Two things happened. The first is that it took him a while to respond. This made me wonder if we are experiencing enough dates to keep romance in our relationship thriving. Then, when he did respond, he mentioned a date that I was actually thinking of as well. It was in our fourth year of marriage, before children. He had planned a day where he surprised me with an airplane ride to Catalina Island. It was a three seater plane, […]

When I was preparing for the release of my book The Unveiled Wife, I was nervous! I had poured my heart into the manuscript and I exposed my heart throughout it. God revealed to me the message of what it means to be unveiled years ago. This message has helped transform me and heal my marriage, and became the foundation for all that I share through my blog. But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.  And we all, who with […]

My dearest hubby, Roger, I am reminded of Christ’s love everyday though the love I have for you. His love is unfailing, unconditional, selfless, humble, gentle, patient, kind, forgiving, long suffering, and so much more. I am working on being more of those each day so that the love I have for Christ can benefit you more. There are other things I am working on to better myself for the Kingdom of Christ and most of all our marriage. I know we’ve had our up’s and down’s through the past 10 years of marriage, but the love of Christ has […]

Lately, I have heard a repetitive message from a few bloggers, a message I have heard in my own heart at times. I’m worn out I’m tired I want to give up and just stop blogging Then I saw a post on social media talking about how blogging is dead. People who have been blogging over a decade have decided to just stop. I get it. I understand how hard it is to maintain blogging. Especially in a world that… is expressively negative toward and fights against Biblical beliefs is extremely sensitive, picking up offenses quickly and retaliating with ill […]

Marriage is hard. Although a husband and wife love each other, there are  conflicts that arise and offenses that hurt. Without apology and forgiveness, marriages would not be happy nor thriving. What happens when your spouse does not want to apologize? What happens when you don’t want to forgive? I want to encourage you today. Apologizing and forgiving are not always easy to initiate and follow through with…but doing so will heal the brokenness in your heart and your relationship. The Word of God says, Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, […]

A few years ago I spent a ton of time daydreaming about divorce. Marriage was not meeting all my expectations, especially in the area of sexual intimacy. (You can read about my marital struggles and all that we faced as newlyweds in my book The Unveiled Wife – I bet there is a lot I went through that you can relate to as a wife!) I grew angry and I grew bitter, quickly. I started doubting the love that motivated my husband and me to walk down the aisle and say “I do.” I also questioned whether life would be […]

A while back my husband and I got into an argument. I would share with you what it was about, but I honestly don’t remember. I think that happens a lot in marriage. I am left with only a feeling and my husband’s words ringing in my ear, Do you forget who I am? Our little spat was going nowhere. I was angry at him for something and I interpreted it as he didn’t care for me. After fighting to get him to understand where I was coming from he interrupted me. His eyes were glossy, his eyebrows half furrowed […]

Dear Andrew, I know that we are broken people.. but I thank you that you continue to show me how I can be whole in Christ. I am sorry that for so long I have put my hope in you instead of God – I put a lot of pressure on you to be a perfect person (someone who you cannot be because only the Lord is perfect) I thank you that you always point me back to God. I have been learning so much about God. I have found out that Jesus is the ONLY one who can satisfy […]

I post on my Facebook page regularly. The Community of wives that are part of the page are significant to me. I have been posting marriage encouragement on Facebook for the last 4 years everyday, every three hours during the day. Sometimes I am able to schedule out posts in advance, but the majority of my posts are live. I share what I am feeling and what God is teaching me. This helps me be authentic with the UW Community and it forces me to rely on God to inspire what I should post about. I want to be relevant […]

My husband pointed out that it often times seems difficult for me to embrace him after we have had an argument or disagreement. In my mind I thought, “Yeah that’s true.” But I don’t know why that is true of me and I don’t want to hurt him. Sometimes I just shut down. Not knowing how to respond, I told my husband, I wish I had a reset button.” He reached his hand across my face and pushed my forehead with a gentle nudge of his pointer finger, while making a silly sound effect. Oh how I wish it were that […]

My husband and I were driving home. The kids were asleep in the back seat. I stared out the window consumed with thoughts swirling around inside my mind. My husband looks my way and asks, How are you doing?” I thought about his question for a few seconds. I didn’t want to answer with “I’m fine” although that would have been a very easy way to answer him and not have to explain all the reasons I was wasn’t fine. How do I to put into words all that is going on with me right now? Just another consuming thought to […]

Dear Andrew, My sweet husband. You truly are the light of my life. We both walked through some really tough roads to finally find each other. I never thought a love like ours was possible. With the strength in our love and our faith, everything that should have torn us apart, only brought us closer together. We have found a true and genuine love that these days, is almost unheard of. You have taught me so many things. You’ve taught me to trust again, to open my heart, but most of all you’ve brought me back to my faith. There […]
