I believe being involved in community is vital, especially for wives. God used community to save my marriage when my husband and I were in the darkest days of our marriage. We were suffering and could barely withstand the pressures and contention that was building up. We stepped into a community that was centered on intentionally making Christ the foundation of marriage. That community of believers became our best friends, and now we consider them family.
God uses people to encourage, affirm, and keep others accountable to faith and to living life His way.
I was recently invited by my friends Darlene and Courtney to join an amazing community through Facebook for wives called Faith-Focused Wives. This is a closer kind of community. Instead of a regular page of encouragement on Facebook, where you may miss some of the posts, this is a private group where women can truly connect in an intimate way.
Darlene, Courtney, and myself are bloggers who are all passionate about sharing God’s love story and helping wives persevere. Our hope is to pour time into this group and really be available for you to connect with us and others.
I would love for you to get to know the wonderful women I am contributing with in this community – if you don’t know them already!
