An Addiction To Alcohol & The Healing Power Of Marriage

This is a guest post written by Kim S., who bravely tells us her story of addiction and healing which she experienced through her marriage. I hope you feel the same encouragement that I did when reading her testimony.  Kim Skinner says:  No one expects to fail in marriage. I certainly didn’t. After thirty years of marriage to the sexiest, sweetest man around, I see our “success”, so far, completely and absolutely as a gift from God. You see, not only did I believe that I would be a terrific, faithful wife, but I also thought I knew how much God loved me. I was wrong on both counts. Nevertheless, we have a loving God who invented marriage to reveal His mysterious, redeeming love to a hurting world

What Does A Prize Worthy Vineyard Have To Do With Your Marriage?

This is a guest article by Michelle Lozano. Her way of communicating how wine is relatable to marriage is captivating. I hope you enjoy her words as much as I do. Michelle writes: I watched a video recently about the wines of Oregon and how specific regions recently yielded some of the best wines in the state’s history. Certain perfect combinations of drainage in the hills, rock layers of the earth beneath the vineyards, the weather cycles, the rain cycles, and fermenting processes have created immense complexity and depth of what defines a great wine. Reading of all these things taught me just how artistically beautiful a glass of wine can be and how most people overlook the ocean of time and history corked within a bottle of Pinot

Letter To My Husband: I Am Sorry

Dear Husband, I pray to God every day that He blesses you for continuing to forgive me for hurting you. I wish I could take away all the negative that I’ve done in your life. I’ve loved you since the moment I saw you. I wanted you to be mine the first time I laid my eyes on you. I fell so deeply in love with you. When I asked you today how you felt when I had my first affair and left you, you told me that after you were angry, you had a complete and overwhelming feeling of defeat and failure. That tore up my heart. I did that to you. I made you feel like a failure. I am so sorry. I

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

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
