The first two Beatitudes in this series were general concepts meant for any marriage, regardless of religion. This next one is slightly different. This Beatitude shows the foundation our marriages should be built on.
Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the Bible and [...]
A little over a year ago, I started this blog…. & since then, God has shown me SOO much about what it means to be a wife after His own heart. Sometimes I felt like the best wife ever…. but so often I’ve felt inadequate and barely striving.
God is sooo not done with me yet, [...]
Hmm, as I began to write the title for this post, I thought, “Wow, that’s got a double meaning! I’m announcing the winner of the book “Love & Respect“… but I’m also going to tell everyone who the winner is if they PRACTICE love & respect in their marriage!!”
So first…. let’s talk about the book [...]
This weekend, I was given the opportunity to share with a group of ladies at a “20-Something” retreat. I chose to talk to them about an area in marriage that is often lacking: RESPECT!
Ephesians 5:33 commands that a wife respect her husband. Unfortunately, there is no condition on that command. We are to respect our [...]
This weekend, Jason & I took a nice long walk/jog along the road that leads from our island (Ocean City) to the next island (containing the towns of Strathmere & Sea Isle). Jason works in Strathmere in the summertime and wanted to check out the beach situation, since storms tend to wash part of it [...]

Roll until the fire is out.
Now, I’ve never had to use this method in a [...]
Wow, has it REALLY been over a month since my last blog post?! My goodness! What a month this has been! And what a major case of writer’s block I have had!!
However, I HAVE been reading… a lot. I’m currently in the midst of reading 4 books - at the same time! One is in [...]
February was the “Month of Love,” right? There’s Valentine’s Day, and of course…. my engagement day was in February as well! My pastor did a series this month on marriage… we had a “Fireproof” outreach the other evening…. Stores go nuts for Valentine’s day related love … Hallmark cards are splashed in red as they [...]
Not so sure what your Love Language is? That’s okay, I didn’t know for the longest time. I mean, I suspected, but I wasn’t entirely sure. If you’re in the same boat as me, or if perhaps you can’t decide between two (or three), a quiz might be the right next step for you!
Below is [...]
Wondering what this whole “Love Language” thing is all about? Well, in a nutshell, it’s how you show and receive love.
For you, it may be acts of service that you do, words of affirmation that you say, quality time that you spend, gifts that you give or receive, or the physical touches that pass between [...]
