Interview – A Wife From Nicaragua

A few weeks ago I had an awesome opportunity to go on a mission trip with my husband to Nicaragua.  It is always an inspiring experience being immersed in another culture.  The weather was hot and humid, the colors where bold and bright and the people we met were kind and welcoming.   Having recently launched Unveiled Wife I was excited to try and interview a Nicaraguan wife to gain perspective and insight about being a wife in a different part of the world.  We were in country for only 9 days and everyday was consumed with work and fellowship; by midweek I was getting anxious, praying that God would show me whom to interview.  The place we were staying at was a secure campsite

The Royal Wedding: Every Girl’s Dream

One week from today our televisions, news homepages and radios will flood with the Royal Wedding updates.  The buzz has already begun.  Next Friday April 29, Prince William will say “I Do” to his beautiful Bride Kate Middleton.  I love what William told the press over a cup of tea: I want this marriage to last forever.” Lets pray that his devotion and determination never fade, rather grow deeper and more passionate as he continues to treat Kate as the Princess she is! If you’re like me you LOVE weddings and they always make you tear up.  If I happen to catch any of the media coverage, I am sure to shed a few. The celebration of two people coming together is an amazing depiction

A Different Kind Of Aisle

As we continue through this week I have been meditating on what Christ went through for us.  Good Friday and Easter are the remembrance and celebration of Christ’s  journey to the cross, his death and resurrection.   It is THE most important event in history, relevant even for us today, yet the remembrance of this Holiday gets overshadowed by the Easter Bunny, colored eggs and peeps!?!  Without Christ sacrificing himself there would be no redemption by grace to cover our sins, separating us from God.  What a horrible place this would be.  I understand that the world would consider this only a celebration for Christians, but I know that there are Christians that don’t even hold value in this week, or not enough value anyways. Jesus

Bring To The Light That Which Is In Darkness – Ephesians 5:11-14

Genesis 3:8 “They heard the sound of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of the garden.” When I was reading this chapter the other day, verse 8 stuck out to me. I wanted to share it with you and pose a question… Are you and your husband hiding from God because of sin? People avoid God all the time. Sin keeps them entangled in bondage, while shame and guilt keep them right there in the heat of it. Yet God says in Ephesians 5:11-14 “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even  expose them; for it

Wednesday Rant – Time Is Of The Essence

Time is an ongoing force pulling us into the future. It can’t be slowed, stopped or sped up. It IS what it IS. A constant tempo that keeps our chaotic life on a universal beat. Why does it feel like the older I get, the faster time seems to pass in a day, when it’s been the same all along? I often find myself stressed out with high anxiety when attempting to plan my week, because there is not enough time to do all the things I wish to do. Lately, I have felt this way towards my blog. Being very sick and then out of country the last two weeks, jumping back into work right away, while still trying to unpack, has left me
