Communication

31 Day Prayer Challenge For Marriage

Prayer is the way in which we communicate with God. I have experienced a huge positive impact in my marriage because of prayer. Whether my husband and I have faced good times or really difficult trials, prayer has brought us closer together to each other and closer to God. And when we were extremely broken, ready to give up all together, God heard our prayers and He saved us! He saved our marriage! Prayer is beautiful. Just having intimate access to talk to God and knowing He desires to hear from us is pretty incredible. Then as we specifically pray for marriage, it aligns our hearts with His will. To go even further, when we pray with our spouse, they get to hear what we

You Don’t Trust God, Do You?

I sat on the floor in front of one of my closest friends as she rocked her baby to sleep. She was sharing with me her journey with God and the things He was revealing to her. She also opened up about her issues with trust, especially with not being able to trust her husband…mostly because of the insecurities and instability from her childhood, her heart had a foundation of not being able to trust. My heart sank when I heard her try to formulate sentences that described this inability to trust and how it was negatively affecting her marriage. My heart sank because I knew what she was describing. I had been there too. My friend was sensitive and I wanted to respect her

Is Social Media A Silent Marriage Killer?

I will be turning 30 this December. This is a milestone birthday for me and one that I have always looked forward to having. As I was thinking about my life up to this point, I thought about many things… One thing that stood out to me was that a very large portion of my life has been spent in front of a screen. Whether a television, computer or phone, this digital age of technology has been a huge part of my life. I experienced the transition from low technology use to extremely accessible and widely accepted technology use. The internet has been revolutionary and with each passing year there is a new phone, tablet, laptop, etc. I began using computers in elementary school and

The Code Word That Helps My Husband Understand Me

Have you ever felt like you were going to burst through your skin, raging with frustration, yet ready to cry at the same time?   Maybe you have experienced a moment when everything was fine between you and your husband… and then he asks you, What’s wrong?” He senses something, and you know it is there too, but you don’t quite know what it is. You quickly respond, Nothing.” For your husband, red flags go up in his mind and he can’t stop the quest to figure out what is bothering you.  This in turn fuels whatever “wasn’t” bothering you – that which your husband took note of – and now you are trying to pinpoint what it is he saw. Situations like this began to pop up

When My Husband Acts Like Me

Have you ever noticed when your husband acts like you? He does something that stops you in your tracks and makes you consider the fact that he never did that before and now he just did. What he did was so familiar to you, you think to yourself, What he just did, he must have learned it from me. But then you don’t want to mention it because it was actually a negative thing. An annoying thing. A thing that makes you regret ever doing it. This has happened to me more than once. And when it happens I feel awful, knowing that I was the one who influenced him in a direction that is not strong or healthy. I want us to be very

Does It Hurt Your Marriage To Go To Bed Angry?

I jumped online to chat with the Unveiled Wife Facebook community, inviting people to say hi or ask a question. I was hoping for a little chat. As more people began to hop on and share their hearts, I saw a reoccurring question: Does it hurt your marriage to go to bed angry? When I read that question I immediately started to remember all of the many arguments that left my husband and me angry toward one another. My husband is the type to want to work things out as soon as possible. If one of us is upset, everything comes to halt until its worked out. This use to make me cringe. I have always hid my feelings…in not so subtle ways. I would be obviously
