About Christian Marriages
We learn the most about Christian marriages when we seek God’s design instead of our ideas. Couples often consider happiness the primary motive for marriage. They think how someone makes them feel to justify their reasons for a relationship. These feelings can be new, beautiful, and exciting but many marriages crumble when these feelings begin to fade.
The reality is that marriage provides many happy moments and equally challenging moments for each couple. You age, economic status, how long you dated or didn’t date won’t offer you any guarantees from hardship. When humans cohabitate, there is always going to be misunderstandings, growth, unexpected trials, and frustrating expectations. Just consider the traditional vows,
“I, ___, take thee, ___, to be my wedded husband/wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part, according to God’s holy ordinance; and thereto I pledge myself to you.”
When couples commit to marriage, they are embarking on an unknown voyage. Often they commit to arriving at their destination with little to no preparation. No matter who you are or how many anniversaries you’ve celebrated, there are storms in life that can leave your marriage shipwrecked. It is essential to anchor yourself in the Word of God to avoid these disasters.

Intimacy in the Christian Marriage- Part 4
Intimacy in the Christian marriage, part 4 is as important as the first three posts in this series. Quite often, women ask me, "What do I do when I don't feel like being intimate, and he does?" Picture this. You've battled toddlers with tummy bugs, cleaned up the...
Intimacy in the Christian Marriage Part 3
We've been talking about Intimacy in the Christian and How then should we behave. As I started this series, it was vital for me to answer the most common questions I get asked. Today, I am addressing an aspect that can be uncomfortable to discuss yet puts a strain on...
How Then Should We Behave? Part 2
Last week we started our series, Intimacy in the Christian Marriage. I am writing this series as one Sister to another. I am confident that we could discuss the husband's vital role in marriage, but I'll leave that for someone else to do. The purpose of this series is...
Intimacy in the Christian Marriage Part 1
Intimacy in the Christian marriage must be a subject I get asked about most. There's a good reason for that. It is such a vital aspect of marriage and yet, the "older women" who were to teach the younger women how to love their husbands, and children have remained...
Reacting versus responding- how to know the difference
When it comes to reacting versus responding, far too many of us are reacting to life instead of responding. It's too easy to feel like we have no other option but to throw in the towel on our parenting, tap out on our marriage, and retreat from our friendships. Life...
Who are you in the trials?
Trails always reveal to me who I am and how much more I need Christ. Some trials are enormous spiritual battles, and others are everyday moments demanding that my flesh dies, (I guess that's a pretty big spiritual battle too.) In trials, I am reminded of John 16:33...
Growing in Grace
Growing in grace reminds me of my first gardening experience. I had never gardened before, but that didn't stop me from having dreams and expectations of a great harvest. I read every gardening magazine I could get my hands on through the winter months. I plotted my...

Balance In An Unbalanced World
If you know anything about me, you already know that balance is an area I am always growing. I tend to have an “All or nothing” personality. My natural tendency is to be 110% in whatever I am doing. Over a cup of coffee, my sons sat with me in the morning discussing...
