The Dryer Incident

From a wife with an unbelieving husband.  She has been on this journey for about 5 months now, and it has been quite difficult. Her husband has felt very disrespected for a long time. Things are quite tense, even now. Her husband has even threatened to leave a few times in recent weeks. But her… Continue reading The Dryer Incident

Praying Scripture

One of the most powerful ways to pray is to pray Scripture over ourselves, our husbands and others – in faith – believing that God is a Promise Maker and a Promise Keeper. I love what David Platt says about praying when we are abiding in Christ and full of His Spirit: “Change your desires… Continue reading Praying Scripture

Be Still

This is my calling from God right now. Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10 So, I have pared down my schedule, my obligations, my ministry, my responsibilities – and I am just seeking Him and basking in His glorious presence. I have slowed WAY, WAY down.  The anxiety is gone. God… Continue reading Be Still

Anxiety Swept Over Me

Greg and April – December 2013 Upon deciding that I must stop the emailing portion of my ministry to wives last week, I experienced intense anxiety for a few days – unlike any I have felt in a LONG, LONG time.

When He Hands You an “Olive Branch”

Sometimes, men have their own way of apologizing.  If we are not careful, we might miss what they are doing and not appreciate the significance of their gestures. If you and your husband have had an argument, he may need time to think and process what happened before he is ready to talk about how… Continue reading When He Hands You an “Olive Branch”

Some fictional examples: My husband cussed me out, so I yelled and screamed and told him he is the worst father on the planet in front of our kids and told them they don’t have to listen to their dad anymore. My… Continue reading Am I Really Justified?

Prayer Day – Consecration

  We don’t talk much about consecration in many of our churches today. But – all believers are to live lives that are fully consecrated to God. That is His design. That is what it means for Jesus to be our LORD. This is what the  “normal” life of a Christian is to be all… Continue reading Prayer Day – Consecration

A Wife Analyzes Her Journey

An email I received from a Fellow Wife in Nov of 2013..  Her words are in black, mine are in blue.  She was taking an inventory of her heart and soul and her progress on this journey over the past 13 months, and asking some questions. This journey of becoming a godly woman is a… Continue reading A Wife Analyzes Her Journey
