Healthy Marriages Start with Healthy People

But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful. Psalm 68:3 Truth be told, many of us read marriage blogs with the hope of finding that key to a happy, healthy marriage. What can we do differently, better, more intentionally to save our marriage, heal our marriage, strengthen our marriage, or improve our marriage? For a number of years, my own marriage was in the pit – a black hole of frustration and despair. I asked myself Are we going to make it? more often than I care to think about now. Was I neglecting our marriage? Actually, during that time I read marriage books, attended marriage classes, listened to marriage sermons, and even went to couples’ counseling. I wholeheartedly

This Wedding Was Done So Backwards And Yet Makes Such Beautiful Sense

On August 19th I celebrated seven years married to the man that amazes me, encourages me and loves me. He is my best friend and partner in everything and it all started with a walk down the aisle… Followed by a run! We got married in a beautiful outside setting. I was 18 and he was 19, so young and in love! It was mid August in upstate New York. The wild flowers were everywhere, the sunflowers were getting tall and the sun shined that warm glow on everything it touched. But on our wedding, the storm clouds rolled in and threatened rain. (And how appropriate! I love the rain!) I remember standing in my spot waiting to walk down the aisle, and for the

Finding The Truth About Yourself Through Restoration

In October of 2012 I wrote an article for Unveiled Wife called “Finding the Truth about Yourself through Separation” In this article I spoke candidly on the pain of being separated from my husband and how I was working toward restoration even though my husband was not interested in the thought of restoring what we once had. Read original article here https://unveiledwife.com/finding-the-truth-about-yourself-through-separation/ At that time, he would not speak to me unless it was a conversation about our girls, and even those conversations were few and far between. He also requested a job transfer which moved him out of state and as far away from me as he could possibly get. I am writing to Unveiled Wife again today for a couple of reasons. First

How I Overcame Trauma And Crisis In My Life

If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself. (II Timothy 2:13 NKJV) This scripture speaks volumes about the Hope we have in God. Even when we don’t realize that hope is present, it is. Therefore, we can always live in hope. The other night, I was sitting with my husband talking about how much has changed in our lives this past year when suddenly I began to cry. I really didn’t know why I was crying because I wasn’t sad. I started to “think out loud”, as I like to call it… I began to realize why I was getting emotional. You see, I went through quite a crisis in my personal life this past year which only my husband, my pastors

Finding A New Life Together Traveling The World

Marriage is the hardest and most rewarding thing I have ever done. Living in Ethiopia with barely any electricity, limited communications, and parasites was a piece of cake compared to marriage. Like all women, I found the man who completed me, had the wedding of my dreams, and knew that God had brought us together for a purpose. But, no one ever explained after “I do.” Often, I heard of the “honeymoon” phase, but never really experienced it. Part of it was due to the fact that I am American and I moved and married a Canadian and felt very homesick for the first couple of months. I couldn’t work because I was applying for my permanent residences, I had no friends, and felt like
