My husband and I were driving home the other night and as we passed by billboards that stood high above ground, there was one that made me nauseous. The advertisement simply read: Fast divorce and bankruptcy… call this number!” My heart sank in my chest from the weight of a burden I felt for all the people who see that billboard on a daily basis. I am aware that there are circumstances that lead people to one or both of these routes, but I find it disgusting how our society flaunts these two options as a quick way to make your […]
Marriage Devotionals For Wives
My purpose for these short marriage devotionals are to encourage wives through God’s Word. Each devotional has God inspired content, based on what God is currently teaching me.

Something BIG is coming to the Unveiled Wife Blog & Community! I have been planning and preparing to launch a membership portion of this site. When I say planning and preparing, what I really mean is I have prayed about it, I have thought about it relentlessly, I have ached over it all with concern, and I have been busy spending countless hours every day for the last month pouring my heart into all it will include. I desire to provide an opportunity for those of you who have been a faithful follower of this blog, those of you who […]
Who are you when no one is around? Throughout my teenage and young adult years this question would have burned a hole in my heart. It would have made me squirm and cringe because of shame. I was good at hiding who I was and what I did in secret. I would put a smile on my face and answered fine to every “How are you doing” question. Intentionally neglecting to address who I was in private was something I learned to do because of fear that people wouldn’t like who I really was. I convinced myself that it was […]
Psalm 86. Before I go on, would you take a minute to open up your Bible and read Psalm 86 or click HERE to read it? There it was…one line that stood out boldly from the rest. Verse 5. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive…“ David penned that God is ready to forgive. I had to stop at this point and reread it. Feeling compelled by the Holy Spirit I evaluated my heart, Am I ready to forgive? The truth is I’m am not always ready to forgive, especially in my relationship with my husband. There have […]
My husband recently wrote an article for other husbands inspiring them with 3 unique ways to grow their faith in 2015. I loved the ideas he shared on his blog and the purpose it serves to encourage others in their faith, so I wanted to share a few ways wives can grow their faith in 2015! As I sat down to consider all the different ways a wife can be inspired to grow in her faith, these 5 ways listed below are the ones I felt very strong about to share: Get connected with She Reads Truth. This is an […]
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 […]
As I sat in church Sunday morning the words from my pastor pierced my heart. A perspective I have never considered before revealed a part of my character I know well, but hate to acknowledge. First, I ask that you take a moment to review the Scripture shared by my pastor and then I will explain. Luke 16:19-31 19 “Now there was a rich man, and he habitually dressed in purple and fine linen, joyously living in splendor every day. 20 And a poor man named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores, 21 and longing to be […]
Fear is one of my biggest problems. I often times let fear rule my life more than putting my faith in God. Fear is crippling! And I know many wives struggle with fear like me. This is a guest article from a wife in our community who tackles the hard truths about fear and what we can do to overcome once and for all! Danessa writes: People often say that fear is the opposite of faith, but I respectfully disagree. The way I see it, fear actually relies on faith — it’s simply faith in the wrong things. Fear is placing your […]
We were four years into our marriage and I was not happy. Marriage was hard and the challenges we were confronted with chipped away at my faith for our future. I didn’t want my husband anymore…I wanted someone new, someone who would fulfill my desires, someone perfect. I wrote on this issue before in an article titled, “How My Husband Found Out About My Secret Affair.” You can click the title to read it. I never physically cheated on my husband, but I explain in the article how I emotionally and mentally sinned against my husband by lusting after another […]
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 […]
Prayer is important to me. It always has been. Even when my heart was hard, my faith was lacking, and I chose not to pray, I knew it was important. During that season of darkness, my husband remained faithful and prayed over us daily. I am so incredibly thankful for his strength to do this and I believe God heard my husband’s prayers, reconciling us and restoring our marriage. Although I have always viewed prayer as vital and believe there is power in prayer, I am usually wishing there is more I can do, whether in my marriage or for […]
Love is never boastful or proud. Love does not strut; it doesn’t have a swelled head. ~1 Corinthians 13 I would never confess to having a swelled head, but when I carefully inspect my life, my heart, and my motives, the sad truth is, I do. My pride can present itself in many ways, but it has taken up permanent residence in the areas of parenting and housework. I assume that my way is the only right way to do things and I give little regards to my husband’s preferences, desires, or suggestions. Being a mom to five children (all […]
