"Being Vulnerable and Direct Feels Wrong!"

I’m going to share one wife’s “gut reactions”  to the list I gave of ways we can speak and communicate directly and honestly. It’s worth the time to really hash through these objections in our self-talk together. My original statements from a post last month about how to directly communicate our needs and desires are […]

The Pendulum Effect

These are some observations I have made on this journey to become a godly wife that I pray might be a blessing to you. 🙂 TWO SINFUL EXTREMES: With almost every aspect of the Christian life, I  picture a number line.  In one direction is one extreme and in the other direction is another extreme.

Resting in Christ

When we are on this journey, seeking to become godly women/wives/mothers… it can feel very overwhelming and we may drive ourselves insane sometimes trying to be perfect and trying to evaluate ourselves constantly to see if we are “getting an A+ on our godly wife report card.” The more you get into this journey and […]

Can You Pray Too Much for Your Marriage?

I think a common temptation when we are struggling in our marriages is for us to focus so much on praying for our husbands and our marriages – those things are almost all we pray about.

Don’t Wait!!

A wife – who had become a widow very unexpectedly that week – wrote to me awhile back, thanking me for my blog. She was so thankful for the two months she had where she had learned to change how she treated her husband and that he died knowing she respected and honored him. Many […]

"I Was SURE I Would Never Make My Husband into an Idol!"

  A reminder – please always check anything anyone (including myself) says against Scripture and remember that ultimately we must each seek to do what we believe God desires us to do and we are each responsible for our own decisions.   From a dear sister in Christ whose marriage is facing many extreme difficulties […]
