How to Fight for Your Broken Marriage

Fix your broken marriage. Is your marriage broken? Is so broken that you think it's beyond repair? Here are 10 important steps that you can take to fix your broken marriage.

There’s a question that I get asked often, and I’ve been asked so many times over the last couple of years, that my answers lately have seemed canned and monotonous.  This week it’s as if God sucker-punched me when I received an email from a reader. I get many emails a week, and this one was different, yet just like the many I’ve recieved. The writer of the email had a desperate tone. She was hopeless…

4 Things to Remember When You’ve Made Mistakes in Marriage

Mistakes Women Make Marriage #mistakes #marriage

Oh, how I get you. If you work from home, you’re probably still in your PJ’s and your hair is up in a messy bun because you’re on day 5 of no shower. If you work outside the home, the fake smile that is plastered on your face can’t stay much longer and soon people are going to start wondering what’s up. There’s an unwelcome tension that seems to linger between you and your husband and you don’t know…

A woman and her calling.

A woman and her calling. Fight for your calling. YOU are called.

No matter what we’ve been through, or what we face, every woman has a calling. Not only does she having a calling, she has it within her to be FIERCE about that calling so that she can be the woman that she was designed to be. The woman this world needs her to be. Step out of that comfort zone, and into His boldness. Because with His courage, you can make wise choices to change your…

I have the amazing opportunity to be a part of an awesome community called Compel Training. It’s a part of Proverbs 31 ministries, and its purpose is to train writers in writing words that move people. Everything I am as a writer today has so much to do with this outstanding community. One of the benefits of being a part of Compel is the challenges that are offered. Recently, one of the challenges was to…

When You Need to be Renewed

When You Need to be Renewed. Renewal, retreat, spiritual

I rested my balled up fist against my forehead as the Colorado sun peered through the window. The speed limit was only 40 mph but the car in front of me surely was only going 30 mph. Apparently, the driver wasn’t aware that I was already a couple minutes late. How rude. Not only was my head pounding from lack of sleep, my lips were hurting, chapped and had a red scaly ring around them….

The One Thing to do when You Find Yourself Frustrated

salt and light linkup

We’ve all been there. We’ve all been frustrated with life at some time or another. I’ve often found myself extremely frustrated and a lot of the time I didn’t even know the reason. We do, do again and then do some more, yet still, there is no satisfaction. And just like Rosanna (today’s feature) says, “doing doesn’t bring us closer to God.” Instead, it leaves us tired, weary, and just plain worn-out. As a wife,…

Why it’s Important to Take Thoughts Captive in Marriage

take thoughts captive

I’m the worst at thinking things that just aren’t true. As much as I know it isn’t right, it’s just something I’m not great at doing. I know I need to take my thoughts captive, and it’s something I have to continually work through. My husband is fairly easy to please. Actually, he’s super easy to please. He typically will eat anything I put in front of him and he never complains. I’m extremely blessed. We’ve been…

5 Tips for When You’re the New Girl

5 Tips for When You're the New Girl

As we drove to church, Averee was only an arm’s length away in the backseat, yet it felt like she was miles away. Biting her nails, she stared out the window with wide eyes. I could tell she was nervous. When the church building was in sight, she suddenly planted her face in her hands. “I don’t think I can do this you guys,” she proclaimed through quiet sobs. John and I looked at each other…

When Life is Falling Apart

What to do when your life is falling apart.

Today I’m absolutely elated to introduce you to my friend Micah. I met Micah not too long ago and I can’t tell you the blessing she’s been to me. She is launching her first book in September, and I’m currently in the process of reading it, and oh, friends, you’re going to want in on this!
