Conflict may be unavoidable in marriage, but you can look at the progress you've made within your relationship. It just might save your marriage!

We’d just finished family fun night and tucked the kids into bed, their emotional tanks filled to the brim. Now it was our time to snuggle and bask in the warm fuzzies of an evening well-done. Except by now, we were both weary and maybe slightly cranky. We walked into the bedroom only to find […]

Is There Hope for My Marriage?

Is There Hope for my Marriage? Her question caused me to look at what I've learned as I've worked through struggles in my own marriage.

Her question was simple: “Do you think there’s still hope for my marriage?”  So many thoughts came rushing to the front of my mind. I wanted to assure her, but I’m not God.

Serving Others {Grace & Truth}

Serving with Humility - join the linkup

I really appreciated a post about serving with humility this week. Sometimes I need to consider things from another point of view to really understand the situation.

The Advice I Could Not Give

The Advice I Could Not Give - how three small words are changing my life

Tell me if this sounds familiar: A friend shares her heart with you, longing for encouragement, and while you haven’t experienced her situation, you find yourself about to give advice. Suddenly, you realize that the words taking shape in your head and heart are words not just for her, but maybe for you, too. Anyone […]

Becoming a Better Wife

A 7-day course that will encourage and strengthen your heart for marriage, from someone who shares from the wealth of her experience.

If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you know that I write about marriage. Maybe you even know that I told God I’d never write about marriage because so many people are more experienced in marriage, or better at encouraging people in their marriages. And yet, God gives me experiences in my […]
