Being Married to a Man Who Is Emotionally/Spiritually Shut Down

From a sister in Christ who has walked this road and was willing to answer some of my questions about being married to a man who is very to himself and quiet… ————————— OUR BACKGROUND This comes from being with my husband for 11 years (8 years of marriage), being his 4th wife, having 11 […]

Finding Her Voice

This is part of a conversation between myself and a sister in Christ who is struggling to articulate her emotions, thoughts and ideas in her marriage.   Her husband wants her to talk and to share her heart and mind with him – but that is very challenging for her.  This is an open dialogue. […]

Being Married to a Man Who Doesn’t Talk Much

  If you are a wife who is married to a man who does not do a lot of talking, this post is for you!  Please keep in mind that it is very normal for opposites to attract.  Talkative people often marry more quiet people.  It makes sense.  But sometimes once we are married, we […]

My Worry Insults My Husband

Fear fuels worry. Fear motivates me to try to control other people and God. Fear cannot cause peace. Fear does not know how BIG God is or see God clearly. Fear leaves God and His sovereignty out of the picture. Fear causes me to doubt God and be a “double minded” person who is blown and […]

Humility is Beautiful

A HUGE key to a successful and intimate relationship with God or with my husband is my own humility.  My sinful and arrogant pride (thinking I know best, I know better than God, I know better than my husband, I have greater wisdom than anyone else) repels my husband, God and everyone else around me!
