Finding Out My Husband Is Addicted To Pornography

This is a testimony from another wife in the Unveiled Wife community who felt compelled to share the most difficult moment in her marriage surrounding the topic of pornography, passionately desiring to give others hope who are facing the same devastation! Robi writes: (This article discusses my first encounter with my husband’s pornography addiction. At that time, I felt very alone and sometimes I still feel like there are no other Christian wives that go through this pain. Yet, I know there are many wives that are experiencing this difficult trial in marriage. I pray and hope to unite wives that are going through this.)  I could never forget the exact moment my whole life became broken. It was a very ordinary day that I stumbled

Partying To Praying: How God Saved My Marriage

In my book, The Unveiled Wife, specifically in Chapter 25 “The Getaway” I mention a story from my marriage where my husband and I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding in Maui. We were looking forward to the joyous celebration we would document, but we also hoped that getting away to Maui would be a time of healing and encountering intimacy in our relationship. During that time in our life, I never would have considered how to help another wife going through the ups and downs encountered in marriage. I was too self-focused and too concerned with discovering healing for myself to give any ounce of encouragement to another. Little did I know or even consider what the couple whom we photographed in Maui

I’m A Christian Wife Who Thought I Was Gay

This article is based on just one topic of many mentioned in my book The Unveiled Wife. I wanted to share about this topic more in-depth on my blog to give you all the more insight into one of the things I was dealing with as a young bride. Three years into my marriage, I was burdened beneath the weight of a secret that was tormenting me. I was convinced that I made a mistake getting married, not because I chose to marry my best friend, but rather because I was wrestling with the thought of being gay. I had never struggled with my sexual identity before. Marrying my husband seemed like the only choice I would ever want to make because he was my best friend,

Confessions Of A Fearful Wife

I am someone who worries. I try not to, but fear is a thorn in my side. Some fears are rational, some are not. Responsibilities and things in life that I can’t control will cause me to fear. Fears are a daily struggle of mine in different areas of my life. My marriage is no exception. Here are a few: Fear that I am not the wife God has called me to be. I do not believe that every woman is made to be a wife. I am, so I want to honor God in my role as a wife. Fear that I am not a good enough wife for my husband. Fear that my husband does not find me attractive. He tells me he

For Anyone Married To A Spouse With ADD or Asperger’s

A few wives in our community recently asked for encouragement and resources regarding husband’s with ADD or Asperger’s. I do not have any personal experience with this type of situation so I reached out and asked the Unveiled Wife Community on Facebook for some help. It was a joy to see over 200 of you take the time to share your story and add some encouragement for wives enduring a similar situation. One of the top comments on the thread that seemed to resonate with many other wives was by CJ: Hubby with ADHD here. It’s difficult. I can get in the flesh quickly thinking that he’s forgetful, distracted, thoughtless, disorganized, zoned out, can’t sit still, plays too much, is selfish at times. However, One

Never Stop Praying For Your Husband

I received this testimony from a wife in the Unveiled Wife Community, a wife who desired to remain anonymous. I am grateful for her bravery to share her story and I am confident it will inspire more wives in our community. She writes: I can finally sit here, look back on last year and share it with you. I’ve asked to remain anonymous, however I really felt I needed to share my story with all of the other wives. We’ve sought out help or improvements in our marriages that all lead us to Unveiled Wife. I’ve prayed with you, I’ve asked for prayers, and through that we are apart of a great community. Here is my story… In mid-late 2012 my husband took a job that
