How One Woman Found Healing From Painful Sex…

I recently received a powerful testimony from a woman who found healing from painful sex. Please read her testimony and then I will explain a little more: (She asked to remain anonymous) I married my high school sweetheart at age 19. We were both virgins and when our wedding night came, I expected magic. Instead I felt pain and disappointment. I didn’t expect sex to hurt so bad. I figured we were rookies and eventually pain during intercourse would go away. It didn’t. Years went by. I lost count of how many gynecologist I saw; none of them having answers. My husband was always patient, kind and gentle but it still ate away at me. I thought making love with my husband was supposed to be beautiful,

A Healthy Marriage That Points To Christ Scares The Enemy

I have been following Amy Hale for some time now on Instagram and I appreciate her authenticity and transparency. She is a great encourager of faith! She is sharing with us today about the power of a strong Christian marriage.  Amy writes: We have an enemy that is very real. He DELIGHTS in creating division in relationships. Especially marriages. I am seeing that so clearly right now. Honestly, I’ve been the biggest hypocrite of a wife. I have judged my husband and criticized him. I have been prideful, thinking “my way” of doing things was better than his way. I have missed opportunities to build him up by withholding love and encouragement when I had the power to give it. I have given my attention

How I Love My Unbelieving Husband

This is a guest post by Allie Bourque who shares her story of having an unbelieving husband. Allie shows how you too can love your unbelieving husband in a manner that pleases Christ.  Allie writes:  My husband and I will be celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary this month, and I find myself dwelling on the past few years. ‘My husband is an unbeliever, but I thank God that I have him to spend my life with.’ He was a believer when we were married, but during our second year of marriage he confided in me that he had been doubtful of his faith for the past six months.

My Marriage Is Not My Happily Ever After

This lovely guest post is written by Brittany. She brings an often forgotten aspect of our marriages to light in an enchantingly open way. Brittany Writes:  I will never forget the first time I watched Snow White. She was just an innocent girl in need of someone to save her. I cried as her stepmother turned on her and cheered as Prince Charming swept her away. Her life was a dream and soon I found myself believing that this is the ultimate picture of what marriage should be. As I grew older I found myself searching for my own hero and believing that the ‘perfect’ man would soon sweep me off my feet and make all of my dreams come true. I wanted a romance

I Used To Be Confident And Then I Got Married…

This is a guest post by Megan Bliss. Her refreshingly open testimony of the struggles she has had with body image are inspiring and enlightening.  Megan Bliss writes:  I was always very confident. That is, until I met my husband. Does that sound backwards? Maybe a little bit. As a teenager, and even through college, I had a fair amount of self-confidence for a lanky adolescent. I had great friends, got good grades, and didn’t feel the need to date every boy who expressed interest in me. I loved writing poetry and spending time with my family. And when I developed crushes on guys who didn’t like me back, well, I got over it. I only had my heart broken once. After a lot of
