This Could Change Your Marriage: War Room Movie Review

War Room. You need to see this movie. This movie opens with a voice talking about the wars we face, while the visual being a husband and wife arguing. That opening scene ended with the words: Victories don’t come by accident.” That is when I pulled out my phone to take a few notes. I came to the movies for enjoyment, but I knew from that opening scene that it would be an impactful movie – one that I would need to share about. We all desire victories in life, especially in our marriage. However, are we willing to spend intentional time praying and trusting God for these victories? The plot follows the relationship between a husband and wife, along with their daughter, as well

Most Wives Find This Hard To Talk About With Their Husbands

I post on my Facebook page regularly. The Community of wives that are part of the page are significant to me. I have been posting marriage encouragement on Facebook for the last 4 years everyday, every three hours during the day. Sometimes I am able to schedule out posts in advance, but the majority of my posts are live. I share what I am feeling and what God is teaching me. This helps me be authentic with the UW Community and it forces me to rely on God to inspire what I should post about. I want to be relevant because I desire to encourage you, where you are at. So, the other day I wrote what was on my heart… I woke up this

How I Moved On After My Husband’s Confession Of Pornography Use

I had a wife email me, asking me how I got over the pain from my husband confessing his addiction to pornography. It took me a minute to figure out how to respond to her. I wanted to share with her because I know in my heart I truly forgive my husband and I have been able to move past the offenses. I also wanted to encourage her because my husband and I are more intimate in our marriage now, than we ever have been…and I hoped that her and her husband could attain that too. I know God has healed us from the destruction of porn use. BUT, this healing took place over the course of a few years! And there were many things that

The Zero Privacy Policy In Marriage: Do You Have It?

My husband and I proactively protect our marriage. Our love and trust for one another have grown over the years, and I believe that there are specific things we have done to foster that growth. Today, I want to share one of those ways with you. My husband and I know that our flesh is weak and that we are capable of sinning against one another. We also know that the enemy will do everything in his power to tempt our flesh to sin against one another. With this in mind, we have always agreed to keep a Zero Privacy Policy. **Side note: I never had a term to label this before, until a good friend of mine uttered these words “Zero Privacy Policy.” I scratched

5 Lessons I Learned About Marriage From One Photo

I have a picture hanging in my bedroom of my husband and I standing in the middle of a road in Maui. We were exploring the island and happened upon a quiet road with a spectacular backdrop. I asked Aaron if we could take advantage of the photo opportunity to capture what we saw. He spent a few seconds setting up the timer and positioned our camera in the middle of the road then he ran to my side and grabbed my hand. Here is that photo: If you have read my story detailed in The Unveiled Wife book, you know that my husband and I struggled in our first few years of marriage – so much that we almost called it quits. We saw

Do You Give Your Husband Your Best?

Throughout our marriage my husband has noticed a trend in my behavior. Maybe you can relate? I smile, laugh and engage with friends and family, only to jump into the car or leave with my husband and exhale how I really feel. My face scrunches up, my attitude turns cold, I sometimes snap at my husband with stern words or slump down with defeat. My entire countenance changes dramatically and my husband is left to wonder what is happening to his wife.  I shared about this pattern at For The Family which you can read by clicking HERE. My thought process in justifying why its ok to do this is along the lines of knowing my husband is not going anywhere, so its ok. But my
