Encouragements For Wives

Encouragements For Wives are random articles intended to lift up wives including testimonies, inspirational images, quotes, etc. My hope is that wives would be empowered, no matter what condition their marriage is in, to remain committed to their husbands, pursue intimacy, and seek a God-centered relationship.

The Power Of Transferring Love

My daughter sat at the kitchen table finishing up her dinner. I was sitting on the couch nursing our youngest. My daughter, Olive, who is three years old, looked over my way and said in the sweetest, high-pitched, Fancy Nancy voice, Mom, when I’m done eating, I’m gonna snuggle with you and hug you and put all of my love in your heart.” My heart filled up immediately.

Help! My Children Are Growing Up Too Fast!

Today my son Eliott turns SIX?! It feels like only yesterday that I was in labor, anxious and excited to meet my first child. Now I have four children and time doesn’t seem to be stopping or slowing down enough to savor all of the goodness. The Bible says children are a blessing. As much as I have always been fond of children, eager to babysit or enjoying my job as a preschool assistant back in the day, there is nothing quite like a house full of littles. But that right there is the problem I am having…they aren’t staying little long enough! Some days feel long, some days feel really long, and mommy needs a time out. But overall, in the grand scheme of

A Christian Postpartum Course That Every Expecting Mom Needs | Review

I am 38 ½ weeks pregnant with our fourth child. We are so excited to meet this little one! With labor, delivery, and postpartum on the horizon, I went through my friend Angie’s Christian Postpartum Course. Angie was my doula for both Olive and Wyatt.

As labor, delivery, and postpartum approach for me once again, I wanted to be proactive in preparing for this adventure. I just completed the

His Prayer For Me Last Night

My husband has always had a heart to pray with me at the end of the day. I love this about him. He is consistent and reminds me to never neglect that God is the most important thing in our lives. Last night, while our heads lay on our pillows, he asked me if I felt cherished. I told him of course I did! It was mother’s day and it was a good mother’s day. It was a full day. My heart was full of gratitude, yet as I lay exhausted in bed, my mind was overwhelmed. I exhaled a long breath and muttered about the messes made over the weekend that have me going into the week a little chaotic, the work we have
