Fight for your Marriage + FREE download


These four little words from my Dad were some of the most life-altering words for me several years ago. Shannon, you have to fight for your marriage. I knew he was right. I knew that I needed to fight…and I’m so glad I did!  Marriage can be one of the most beautiful relationships you’ll have, but it is one of the hardest to maintain.

Because it isn’t easy.

Marriage is hard.

You will have trials, you’ll have days when you wonder what in the world what you were thinking when you said “I do.”

There will even be days when you’ll want to give up. I’ve been there.

I don’t know what you’re going through in your marriage right now, but I do know one thing:

Jesus can heal your marriage.

I know this because He healed mine. My marriage was struck a traumatizing blow yet we survived. Not only did we survive, we thrive today. But only because of Jesus.

And I can assure you that Jesus knows EXACTLY what you’re going through. He’s right there even when you do not feel Him.

Whether it is infidelity, financial burdens, estranged children, work stress, family relationships, or whatever it is…I encourage you to FIGHT.

Fight for your marriage.

My marriage was in shambles and devastation was literally at every corner. There was no way that we would make it. The trauma was too much, and it seemed impossible to recover. My husband had every right to seek divorce, yet he chose not to take that route. I repented and asked for forgiveness.

My husband gave me forgiveness and much more grace than I deserved and I’m so grateful he chose to FIGHT for our marriage.

And, I’m so grateful that I chose to FIGHT because honestly, sometimes it would have been easier for both of us to just give up!

After several years of restoration, my marriage is healthy, whole and complete, but only because we BOTH chose to fight.

He died a painful and brutal death. {1 Peter 2:24} THAT’S how much He loves us. His love is unconditional and NOTHING can separate it from us. {Romans 8:38} He is in constant pursuit of us. {Ezekial 34:11} Therefore not only are we His,…we are fiercely His.

    This is so great Shannon! Sharing with all my married friends!!

  2. What an encouraging post! I don’t know about you guys, but in my relationship we fight over little things (like the phrase “the straw that broke the camel’s back) but clam up over the big things that are actually bothering us. Some days I definitely feel like I’m fighting for my relationship.

    • Shannon says:

      Lauren- I hear you! It’s easy to fight over the little things, but it doesn’t require a lot of emotional effort. But, when it’s the big things we do tend to just sweep it under the rug because it actually requires “change” and we just hate change don’t we? Hang in there… ya know, a marriage relationship doesn’t thrive over night…it’s daily putting one another first and learning and growing together. But, communication IS key!

    This is such an inspiring post! I have firsthand experienced the hardships of marriage and have found that if you fight for it, it can be the most amazing relationship you will ever have!

  5. Dana says:

    I went back and read your story and know exactly how it feels to fight for your relationship when it might as well be over! God directed me to your blog today so I could read it as we are getting married tomorrow 🙂

    • Shannon says:

      Oh Dana! Congratulations and Happy Wedding-ing!;-) I’m so glad that you came over and that He orders our steps! Again, congrats on getting married!

  6. Melynna says:

    Wow. I’ve been desperately searching for encouragement during the hardest season of my life. My husband has fallen victim to the world and has turned away from God’s truths. We have been separated for almost 6 months and he is seeking divorce. It’s not at all what I want and God has deliberately told me to fight for my marriage on 2 separate occasions. My husband refuses counseling and I have become so weary. I feel like I have done all I can. Thank you for this post. It brings hope.

    • Shannon says:

      Sweet Melynna- this is exactly why i created this journal! I get so many messages with similar stories…you are not alone! I am praying for you and for your marriage. Never ever lose your hope melynna!

  7. Cathy says:

    We are divorced nothing I wanted but he did I found out he was dating a prophetesses and now they are getting married. What a blow but I still feel the need to pray for him

    • Shannon says:

      Hi Cathy- I’m so sorry. I can’t understand the pain you might be feeling. Know that you’re not alone and that I am praying for you!

  8. […] This work was excruciating. I had to offer every single part of my heart up to my Savior (and John), and it required deep vulnerability. I had to face the pain and truth of what I had done, while simultaneously accepting the forgiveness and grace of both John and Jesus. I also had to learn to forgive myself. […]
