My Story

These posts are manly about my life story and testimony.

My husband showed me how to time travel when we were dating. Since then we have done it quite a few times. It is not the kind of time travel described in Hollywood movies and there is no time machine required to do it. We simply travel through time together. It goes something like this… Hey babe, want to time travel?” “Sure!” I respond with a smile on my face. The anticipation of where he travels to, always stirs up curiosity in my heart. We were sitting on the edge of the dock under the gazebo. It was hot. The water […]

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 […]

I heard a stat recently that estimated there are over 200,000 blogs started each day. That means there is a vast number of fish in the online sea. But I don’t share that to discourage those of you who want to start a blog and have yet to do so. I mention it because it shows the value of blogging. People like to blog and people like to read blogs. Plain and simple. People are starting blogs for various purposes. Each and every blogger defines differently how blogging is valuable to them. And each and every blogger started for different […]

I have been writing on Unveiled Wife since March 2011. I committed to honestly write about my journey of being a Christian wife and the things I am learning about on the way. There have been some incredible discoveries God has allowed me to see about my character; some through reading His word and others through interactions with my husband. I have shared many of them with you through this blog. Here is a short list of some of the most life changing realizations I have come to: Breaking The Silence To Tell My Husband What I Was Hiding Listening […]

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 […]

That’s right! I am caught in a love triangle! I bet you never would have guessed this marriage blogger would say such a thing, let alone condone that you should be in one too?! But the truth is, no marriage is truly complete without one..well without this specific one! The love triangle I am suggesting and referring to is the love between me, my husband and God. When I first became a wife, although I desired to honor God in my marriage, I was more focused on pleasing my husband and becoming one with him. I admit that there came […]

On April, 29th 2015 at 8:40pm I sat on the couch watching my son expend his last bit of energy before bed. My stomach began burning as a simultaneous burst of excitement rose in my heart. It’s happening. I was two days past my due date and eager to meet our little boy or girl. The anticipation of not knowing the gender was incredible motivation to want labor to come quickly! It didn’t take long for the burning in my abdomen to begin cramping in regular intervals. I let my husband know and we lay in bed together waiting to […]

If you take a look at the women around you, whether you know them or they are strangers, you will see an expansive variety of different types of women. Each one decorated in appearance by wardrobe, facial expressions, hairstyle and body language all of which is motivated by their heart, mind and personality. We all have our own way of sharing who we are with the world. Many of us, however, hide even more what one cannot see physically, or at least we try. We clutch onto a security blanket or veil that keeps the stuff we don’t want seen, […]

For the first few years of marriage, I never considered that my husband had become an idol in my life. I didn’t recognize just how much I was relying on him to fulfill my needs. Instead of going to God through prayer and trusting in Him to guide me through life, I placed more responsibility on my husband to play the role of God in my life. I would seek my husband for wisdom, encouragement, love, comfort, entertainment, and even prayer. I don’t believe it is a bad thing to seek to gain those things from my husband as long […]

I was recently encouraged by my friend Angie from Redeeming Childbirth to make a worship playlist to play during labor and delivery. Her passion is to inspire pregnant women to invite God into the process of bringing a baby into the world, especially since He is the one who knit that baby together! Psalm 139:13-17 13 For you created my inmost being;     you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;     your works are wonderful,     I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you     when I was made in […]

I had been at the doctor’s office for over an hour. Sitting across from me my doctor explained to me the diagnosis and where to go from there. All I can remember is a gut-punch feeling that I would never be normal again. Stuck on autopilot as emotions ran wild in my heart, I made it home safely. My husband was sitting at the kitchen table when I walked in. I can recall the moment as if it happened in slow motion. Still seated in his chair he pushed it out from the table and made eye contact with me […]

I really love being pregnant! I am almost full term with my second baby and the joy in my heart is bursting at the seams. Sure being pregnant can be challenging. There are things that are a potential risk that should be avoided for the health of the baby, simple things become uncomfortable like sitting and laying down, and then there is the anxiety of not knowing if baby is perfect. In fact, just last week during a routine appointment we heard an irregular heartbeat. We were shocked and scared for what it meant, but thankfully the doctors were able […]
