Many of you prayed for me a few months ago because I had a lot of health issues going on. I want to report multiple praises to God.
- My hormones have miraculously been completely normal for the last 3 months after 2-3 years of things being rough. – I have energy. What a blessing!
- I can tolerate sugar (sucrose) now. Better than ever. I have had digestive problems my whole life because of this (unbeknownst to me), but in recent weeks, my tummy issues seem to be totally healed!
I can eat veggies and fruits and bread!! Normal food!!! ACK!!!!!!! I’m so excited!
For my 48th birthday last week, I tried half of a brownie and felt great!
I can’t imagine what that would have done to me a few months ago. It feels very surreal that I can eat so many more foods now.
I just want to invite you to rejoice with me and praise God with me. Thank you to those who prayed for me. What incredible blessings! I am extremely grateful.
The greatest birthday gift you could give me is to pray for my family, the Lord’s leading for me, His protection, and His greatest glory in my life.
And please pray for all who will read on my sites that the Lord might use every word to draw people to know Jesus as Savior and Lord and to live wholeheartedly for Him. Please also pray for America, the Church, and the world, that God might draw millions to Himself in these times.
Some of you may enjoy an update on our Siberian Forest Cat, Silver. He’s doing well. He’ll turn 7 this May. He is still a very handsome fella.
My husband and kids are doing well, too. I am working back at my family’s office again after 11 months of working from home. I’m working some extra hours now and Greg has gone out of his way to help with laundry and supper. He treats me like a queen and is so thoughtful and kind.
Honestly, sometimes I feel like anything I could do to thank him for all he does for me and the kids would be totally inadequate. What a different family life we have now from when I began this journey in December of 2008 and we were both so miserable.
Back then, he was completely shut down. He didn’t want to be around me, touch me, or talk with me. Back then, I didn’t think he could be a good leader or a godly husband. But I decided to start doing things God’s way instead of my way, even though it made no sense to me, at first.
Turns out, God’s ways are infinitely better than my ways. And His wisdom is infinitely higher than mine. He healed and transformed me. And slowly, he healed and transformed my husband, our marriage, and our children.
We are not perfect. We will always have more refining to undergo and more learning to do at the feet of Jesus as long as we are in this life. But we are not the same people we were from 1994 to 2008.
I thank God for His miracles and His leading that is available to anyone who chooses to put their faith in Jesus and yield to His Lordship. May He continue to lead each of us and may He be greatly glorified in all of our lives.
I could never have imagined what God had in store.
When I realized what a mess I had made in my marriage and began to ask God to change me, I had no idea that I would ever share anything with any other wife.
I spent 3-5 hours per day 7 days per week for a few years reading books on godly womanhood and marriage, journaling, praying, and asking God to help me understand His design for me as a woman and wife and for marriage.
It blew my mind when Greg asked me, a few years later, to share what I had learned from the Lord with other wives. He has been my biggest fan and supporter ever since.
I’m so thankful for y’all!
Can I just say what an honor and joy it is for me to get to share with you here? I never get tired of seeing lightbulbs go on and watching God do miracles in women’s lives, marriages, husbands, and children.
I pray that the Lord may richly bless you, your walk with Jesus, your marriage, your family, and your ministry.
Below is a pic of me around the time I started blogging in 2012. How crazy is it that it has been over 9 years?!?!
Thanks for hanging out with me! Much love!
My Books Are Available
If you’d like to follow along with me on my journey from anxious, stressed out, Type A wife and mom to learning God’s ways, I have all the baby steps that God showed me in these books.
These are the resources I WISH I had when I started this journey in 2008. My prayer is that God may use me to connect the dots a lot closer together for those who come behind me so that maybe it won’t take so many years for things to click for other wives as it did for me.
