I help wives discover the spiritual abundance we can all have through Jesus Christ and the wisdom we are looking for in our marriages that we can’t find in our culture.
My Big Mess
For the first 14 years of our marriage, I didn’t understand why things weren’t better. The harder I tried to make Greg be the man I wanted him to be, the more he shut down and the worse things got.
Eventually, he didn’t want to be in the same room with me, touch me, listen to me, or share anything with me.
I kept telling God to change him. But he didn’t change!
I had no idea why he was so passive and shut down. I just thought he was a terrible, unloving husband.
Then God opened my eyes to some serious blind spots in my own life in December of 2008. What a shock that was! I had actually been rather controlling, condescending, critical, bossy, argumentative, bitter, and difficult to approach.
Who knew that I was contributing to a hefty portion of the dysfunction myself?
As of May 2019, we have been married for 25 years and not only did God heal and change me dramatically, He also healed my husband and our marriage—in time.
I am so excited and honored to get to share the spiritual treasures God showed me on my journey to becoming a peaceful, godly wife.
Note— If you are dealing with extreme issues (unrepentant adultery, active drug/alcohol addictions, abuse, or severe uncontrolled mental health issues), please seek godly, experienced counsel and any resource you need for help ASAP.
These types of issues generally require more intensive and specialized assistance one-on-one.
When women are whole in Christ they are empowered by God to have divine relationship skills that greatly bless their marriages and other relationships.🎉

THE ABC’S OF SALVATION
A = Admit you are a sinner and you can’t be perfect and holy enough in God’s eyes to be right with Him on your own. Turn away from your sin.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Rom. 3:23
B = Believe that Jesus (God in the flesh) died on your behalf to pay the price for your sin and to give you a way to be right with God – to be forgiven. He lived the perfect life you couldn’t live. He died the death you deserve and rose from the dead in victory over sin, death, and the grave on your behalf!
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus, our Lord.” Rom. 6:23
C = Confess that Jesus is your Lord – this means, Jesus is now your Master and you live your life for Him and His glory rather than for yourself. You say it out loud to others and you live it from now on.
“If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with your heart you believe and are justified, and with your mouth you confess and are saved.” Rom. 10:9-10
