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 [...]

As a wife, a mom, or a woman… what kinds of FEAR do you face?
As a wife, I face the fear of failure - that my husband won’t think I’m good enough, that I’ll fail at being the best wife out there.
I face the fear of rejection - that if I do something “wrong”, my [...]

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!
