Reviews of Christian Marriage Books & Movies

I started reading marriage books to improve the condition of my relationship with my husband. I felt led to write reviews that included how each resource helped my marriage to encourage other couples to use some of these tools to promote growth in their relationships and to give better understanding of what each resource is. I want to urge all husbands and wives to nurture their marriages by choosing the right resources based on their needs.

Women Of Faith Event Review

I had the opportunity to attend Women of Faith this year in Anaheim, Ca. Now just to be clear, this event was not a marriage event/conference, it was specifically to encourage women. I felt compelled to address that right away since most of my reviews cover marriage material whether books, movies, or conferences. And yet, I felt so revived leaving the Women of Faith event and with a handful of notes that will surely have an impact on my marriage. I hope this review not only gives you insight into the event, but also excites you about attending one in your area. I went to Women of Faith with my two good friends Joanne and Jacque. We made a girls date out of it by

Logos: A Free Webinar On A Great Resource

Recently I had the opportunity to attend WiMS (Women in Ministry Summit) hosted by Logos. It was a one day event where nearly 50 women gathered and encouraged one another in the different passions we all have that ultimately support one goal: Glorifying God! I felt honored to be among such spiritually mature women of faith. It was great to meet these women, some of whom I have been building friendships with online for years. The above photo is just over half of the women who joined together! To sit with these women and hear how The Lord is using them effectively to spread the Gospel was enlightening and bolstered my faith. I also had the privilege of hearing Kay Arthur share her story with us. Through

Resources To Educate Yourself On Pornography

You have an incredible gift, the gift of learning. We all learn through experience as well as through reading and researching.  One of the greatest tools used in retraining behaviors, improving, breaking habits, or making adjustments in life is learning. The more educated we are about ourselves and about the issues that concern us, the better we are at making choices that benefit us and others. I use to struggle with pornography, and one way my perspective and desire changed about it came as I learned more about its devastating affects to my body/mind, learning what the industry is truly like, and ultimately paying attention to what God says about sexual impurity being a sin. The more information I received, the more I was equipped

My Interview With Dr. Juli Slattery & Linda Dillow On Sexual Intimacy In Marriage

I had the incredible honor of being able to interview Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow this week! As I woke up early Thursday morning, I was eager to chat with these two brave and godly women who are paving the way for Christians to openly discuss intimate issues. Dr. Juli Slattery wrote a book titled “No More Headaches” that revolutionized my perspective of sex in marriage and it was one of the first book reviews I have shared with the UW Community.  I highly recommend it to every wife I connect with. This week was a little rough.  My son was really sick and I spent most of my nights tending to him into the early morning hours. The stress and worry that overwhelms

Review Of Pulling Back The Shades By Dannah Gresh & Dr. Juli Slattery

Pulling Back The Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and The Longings Of A Woman’s Heart by Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery is a beautifully written, Biblical response to the rapidly growing trend of accepting and normalizing erotica, specifically 50 Shades of Grey, as well as addressing other issues that have to deal with sexual and emotional intimacy. {Check out my interview with Juli Slattery regarding sexual intimacy!} As much as this book is a powerful resource that confronts the issue of erotica, very specifically the series 50 Shades of Grey, Dannah Gresh points out, This book is about the spiritual battle for the hearts and souls of women. (146) I love that she added that to the text. I hope her words show you this book was
