3 Important Benefits of Prayer in Marriage

I’ll be honest, I have no clue how married couples survive without God in their lives. Marriage is hard enough with God, so without Him? Geesh. I can’t fathom.

And during the most traumatic time of our marriage, He was there, even when we did not feel Him….

How to Write Your Husband a TRUE love letter

I thank God every day for my husband because I earnestly prayed for a man just like him. Everything I do, I strive to give thanks to God for all that is within my marriage (during the good and the bad). As I think about him, I can’t help but think about writing love letters. A lengthy letter thanking him for how he has loved me, blessed me, and taken care of me would be…

How Fighting in Marriage is Okay.

The devil HATES your marriage. If he can slip in even through a tiny crack, he will. His desire is to come in, make residence, and wreak havoc. And then the ultimate goal is to destroy you, destroy your family and destroy generations. Sounds depressing and somber, doesn’t it? Yep. Because it is. We can’t allow him to do this! We have to FIGHT in marriage, and I’m not talking about fighting each other. We…

Fiercely Fighting for my Marriage

Fiercely Fighting for my Marriage One night in April 2015, my husband moved out, leaving me and my three children alone in our home. I had sensed a separation brewing for many years, especially in the past six months.  After consoling our heartbroken children and dealing with my own pain that awful night, I was surprised to feel relieved. We had finally hit bottom, and the looming question of “When will he leave us?” had…

Overcoming in Marriage

Last week me, my husband and daughter went to our favorite local Mexican restaurant. He had just arrived home after a week-long business trip. As we got caught up on the week’s events I couldn’t help but notice the sweet elderly couple sitting across from us. They both had years of wrinkles splattered across their face that seemed to carve a map of their lives together. Years of happiness, adventures, and utter heartbreak no doubt…

loving your spouse well during the teen years

When John and I got married a little over 25 years ago we had no idea what we were getting ourselves in to as it regards to parenting. And I would guess that most couples feel the same. Marriage can be hard, yes.. but parenting? Ugh.. And how about parenting two teens…that just happen to be girls.  Oh, God. <Literally> And we’ve got two of them. Hone, tly we wouldn’t trade them for anything but I would…
