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.

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.

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?

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.

Ways To Intentionally Build Intimacy With Your Friends

Having friends is a key component that I believe is necessary for every woman’s livelihood.  Being a part of community has a powerful and positive influence on our lives as we are surrounded by like-minded people who truly care about us and accept us, but who also walk by our side advising and encouraging us to be better. In community we have support and love.  In community we can experience deep friendships that re-energize us for our relationships with our husbands and children. There is something uniquely special about the way a friend can comfort and help you become the woman God desires you to be. Here is a list of creative ways to build intimacy with your friends: – Go through a devotional together

20 Ways To Intentionally Build Intimacy With God

I love the verse James 4:8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. We must draw near to God!  When we do, He is near!
