How I Overcame Trauma And Crisis In My Life

If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (II Timothy 2:13 NKJV) This scripture speaks volumes about the Hope we have in God. Even when we don’t realize that hope is present, it is. Therefore, we can always live in hope. The other night, I was sitting with my husband talking about how much has changed in our lives this past year when suddenly I began to cry. I really didn’t know why I was crying because I wasn’t sad. I started to “think out loud”, as I like to call it… I began to realize why I was getting emotional. You see, I went through quite a crisis in my personal life this past year which only my husband, my pastors

So, What Does Restoration In Marriage Look Like?

I last wrote about the fact that our Father is a God who restores.  I am an example of His restoration and redemptive nature – as is restoration in marriage.  And while restoration in your marriage will look differently than it does in mine, there are qualities about God’s plan for us that are all similar. So, what does marriage restoration look like? Well, before anything else, you have to trust in God.  This isn’t as easy as it sounds, maybe some of you already know that.  Trusting in God means that you trust in His plan for you and your marriage and most importantly, it means that you trust in His timing.  God’s timing and our timing are two entirely different calendars.  It’s true that restoration can

Life Happens. Tears Get Shed. Hearts Get Broken. But God Restores!

I got married almost eight years ago. I remember that time of our life so fondly. It was a fun and exciting time – full of passion for one another and peacefulness. Our problems were small. If you are in that season of your marriage, or pre-marriage, I pray that you treasure it with all your heart. Because the truth is, life happens. Usually when you least expect it. We weren’t Christians during that time. We were young and naïve and didn’t have a lot of life experience – at least none with any substance. I’m not saying that in a bad way, we just hadn’t been jaded by life nor its worldly temptations. We had a big wedding, full of cultural touches from my

Encouragement For Wives Contemplating Divorce

Today the Lord put this message of encouragement on my heart to share with you!  If you or your husband are contemplating divorce please watch! Marriage can be difficult at times.  The thought of divorce may loom overhead.  However, I challenge you to hang on!  Have faith that God will restore your relationship and transform it.  Continue to pray over your marriage daily and seek guidance from God’s Holy Word. In the video above I mention Ephesians 4:2-3 …with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. I believe God wanted me to share this verse to encourage you to act out this verse in your marriage.  With humility, gentleness, patience, and

God’s Redeeming Love In Marriage

I’ve never heard of princess dreams that consist of the knight in shining armor chasing after another.  Perhaps they exist, Only in the form of nightmares. I grew up in a Christian home, graduated from Christian school, and completed the circle by graduating from Christian college and teaching in a Christian school.   Surely with so much Bible knowledge, surely with such great parental examples, the odds of divorce would be the lowest possible. But years after marrying my knight in shining armor, I discovered that he loved another and had been involved with her for approximately 4 of the 5 years we were married.  After battling what to do, instead of finding ourselves joyfully serving God, we found ourselves divorced. As a naïve girl with a

Is There Hope For Reconciliation After Adultery?

I recently received another testimony of a wife who found encouragement through Unveiled Wife while enduring a dark season in her marriage.  Her letter was very touching as she shared the pain she experienced from the threat of divorce, as well as a prayer for her husband, hoping in faith for reconciliation after adultery.  Although anonymous, this wife had a desire to be a light for other wives going through dark times.  May her words impact you as they have me. Dear Unveiled Wife, By reading the blogs and comments from your followers, I can see many wives are hurting in their marriages. I was one of them and found hope in wives’ entries of restoration and healing. I’m hoping my story below can be of
