I pray that our marriage and other marriages would be blessed by having an awesome communication line! May Your words be on our lips daily. May

I Have No One Else To Talk To

I receive messages quite often from women that either start or end their message to me by saying: I have no one else to talk to.” Included within the body of the message is usually a paragraph or two of their personal story or a struggle they are walking through. My heart is heavy for the women who are not only going through these marital struggles, but more so that they feel isolated and alone. I appreciate people connecting with me through messaging, but this one line has always jolted me. It breaks my heart that people have no one else to talk to. Is it because of a lack of trusted friendship? Is it because of a lack of courage to be vulnerable?  Is

Why I Chose To Put My Family On A Schedule

My husband and I have always been very flexible people. We have no problem staying out late, making dinner plans on the fly, or arranging things in order to accept the invitations we receive from others. Both of us love being ready and able to just go, to have fun, and reap any affects of our decisions later. This worked really well the first few years of our marriage. It was just the two of us. Then came Eliott. We sort of boasted about how flexible our growing family was. When we stayed out late, Eliott would come too and fall asleep in the Ergo on Daddy’s back. Then we started working from home. This is when we first started realizing how our flexibility could

A Healthy Marriage That Points To Christ Scares The Enemy

I have been following Amy Hale for some time now on Instagram and I appreciate her authenticity and transparency. She is a great encourager of faith! She is sharing with us today about the power of a strong Christian marriage.  Amy writes: We have an enemy that is very real. He DELIGHTS in creating division in relationships. Especially marriages.

I have been prideful, thinking “my way” of doing things was better than his way. I have missed opportunities to build him up by withholding love and encouragement when I had the power to give it. I have given my attention

Why Our Best Is Never Good Enough In Marriage

This is a guest post written by Alison who talks about this marriage issue, bringing a clear view and perspective to this area of our lives.  Alison writes:  My husband is a car guy. He likes fixing them, reading about them, talking about them, watching videos of fast ones, and revving the engines of loud ones. I’ll admit – I don’t get it. I am not a car girl. The other day, after fixing something-rather on his big old rugged Jeep, my man asked me to take a ride with him. Everything in me wanted to say no. I mean, a car is a car is a car, right? Not to my husband. His car is special. His Jeep has a name – Dale. “Because
