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. His Word is rich in wisdom and comfort and I believe it is important that we are encouraged through scripture, especially about marriage and relationships.

Logos: A Free Webinar On A Great Resource

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 to spread the Gospel was enlightening and bolstered my faith. I also had the privilege of hearing Kay Arthur share her story with us. Through

Prayer is not a preparation for the battle; it is the battle!

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 others. I pray and ask that God’s will is done, but I also have an ache to do more. This way of thinking can be

I Can’t Be The Only One Who Has Done This?

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 five-years old or younger), we have a lot of sippy cups in our house. I am fully aware that you can mix and match the

His Crowning Joy

It was the golden hour.  You know it well – that last beautiful hour of golden, buttery light before the sun sets for the night.  We had just witnessed two dear friends become Mr. and Mrs. and the reception was in full swing.  The old barn that held so many memories was helping to build so many new ones that May 25th.  Love and redemption forever tied in with barn wood and donuts. As the light began to soften, people began trickling out to the field.  The event was marked by a large number of photographers.  We just can’t resist light like that.  One by one, groups were forming for photographs.  Bridal party.  Couples.  Friends.  Families.  As Josh and I stepped out into the field

5 Ways Psalm 1 Teaches Us How To Prosper In Marriage

I was really encouraged as I read Psalm 1 the other day.  These few short verses captivated my heart and gave me a beautiful vision of my marriage in the future. Take a moment to read Psalm 1.  {If you want to read it on BibleGateway.com click HERE.} The Psalm starts out by describing ‘The blessed one…’ 1 Blessed is the one    who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take    or sit in the company of mockers, 2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,    and who meditates on his law day and night. This immediately had me wondering, do I delight in God’s law?  Do I meditate on it day and night?

Living Inspired – My Interview With Tricia Goyer

Tricia Goyer is a beautiful and talented woman. She is a wife, mama of six, grandma of two, and a best selling author.  In addition to writing books and articles on her blog triciagoyer.com, she hosts an online radio show called Living Inspired. I have had the privilege of being on the contributing team with Tricia at The Better Mom and have recently connected with her when she kindly invited me onto Living Inspired earlier this year. In this interview Tricia asked me some real and challenging questions. I started crying as I heard my own heart talk about Unveiled Wife and Wife After God. Although I know how I feel about all that God has done through these two platforms, I have never heard myself
