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.

Learning To Truly Love

This is a guest post by my friend Ruth Schwenk from The Better Mom!  This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” —1 JOHN 3:16 Have you ever felt unappreciated as a mom? Have you ever felt frustrated by your kids’ seeming indifference about all you do for them? Guess what? You are not alone. And it’s tough to love when you don’t always get a return. Of course, at times we get a cute card, a text message, or a thank- you. But more often than not, what we do seems to go unnoticed and unappreciated. So we need to guard our hearts

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. We are hoping she can make it to this birth as well, however as she is also in her third trimester we are keeping those plans tentative. Angie has personally walked me through two very different postpartum journeys. Her expertise and passion for helping mothers during this crucial season has been an incredible blessing to me. As labor, delivery, and postpartum approach for me once again, I wanted to be proactive in preparing for this adventure. I just completed the

But if we wait to connect at bedtime, we don’t often have much left

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
