How to Share Your Needs with Your Husband

When I first got married, communication came easily and it seemed that my husband understood what my needs were. Of course we spent a lot of time together and that made it easy for him to see, know and understand those needs. When we settled into our home and started to manage life as a married couple, I began to feel that he didn’t understand my needs as well. We had bills to pay and a house to keep. We participated in church activities, and though we were together a lot, it wasn’t the same.

The more I felt misunderstood, the more frustrated I became. It didn’t take long for me to feel as though he shuffled me out of first place in his life (first place after God). I felt resentment build each time my needs went unnoticed, or unanswered. My husband was not a bad guy; he was simply trying to manage a family on top of his regular responsibilities. When pressed, he genuinely wanted to meet my needs; he just had a lot of other competing factors in his life. It took me a few years to understand my husband’s mentality in wanting to provide for his family, participate in church activities, be a good father and a great husband.

Looking to improve communication in marriage? These are a few ways you can share your needs with your husband in a thoughtful way. #marriage #communication

As I understood his perspective, I learned to approach him differently when I truly needed him to hear and understand me. I want to share some of the ways I approached him in those times. None of these ideas are brilliant or new; you’ve heard of all of them. But sometimes it can be good to hear them again and try to put them into practice.

Join me at Fulfilling Your Vows as I share these ways to share your needs with your husband.

What are some of your tried and true ways to be sure your needs are heard? 

 

 

Overcoming the Uphill Battles in Marriage

This post may use affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Every marriage faces uphill battles and times of struggle. None of us are immune from those. What happens, though, when those times seem to become the norm rather than the exception? What about when a situation turns ugly and you don’t feel secure telling your girlfriends or small group about things that are going on?

Are you facing uphill battles in your marriage? How do you respond when marriage seems like such a struggle? Hope for overcoming uphill battles in marriage. #marriage #overcoming #hopeforthehurtingwife

I never expected to find myself in that situation. I had a strong marriage to a man who had been a Christian pretty much from birth, as I had. We had our ups and downs, but I never expected the bottom to nearly fall out in my marriage. The shock and hurt that I felt was overwhelming.

Everything that I knew to be real and true in my marriage was stripped away. All that remained was a bare and broken heart. It wasn’t long before the question became, “Are you going to stay?”

We spent a lot of time in various ministries at the church and our entire support system was there. There was support if I wanted to leave, but there didn’t seem to be much hope if I wanted to stay. I felt utterly confused by the lack of support as we walked this dark road.

I’m honored to be sharing about overcoming the uphill battles in marriage over at Young Wives Club again today.

How to Grow a Healthy Marriage

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy here.

My husband and I celebrated our 18th anniversary this summer! We’ve grown so much over the years, experienced typical ups and downs and endured many changes. We’ve come a long way from that couple standing in front of the church saying our vows. There were so many changes that occurred after marriage. Looking back, I see that I was not prepared for all that changed when we got married.

Dating had come easily, conversations flowed freely. Perhaps it was the stress of married life, or maybe the early pregnancy in our marriage, that indicated that things would not be smooth sailing. Although I committed to the marriage for the long haul, I learned a few things in those early years that helped me stay focused on growing in my marriage.

From Heartbreak to Redemption: The Love Story for the Ages

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Today I want to tell you a different kind of story – a love story that’s been years in the making. 

I’ve shared pieces of my story here over the last four years. I’ve shared the heartache and hurt, but also the hope.

It’s been my desire to encourage, to support and to be a champion for marriages – and I’m not going anywhere.

But today, I want to share a little deeper. I want to share the truth behind these words:

“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
– I Corinthians 15:55

Are you experiencing heartbreak in your marriage? Be encouraged by the hope of the greatest love story we can ever know - a love story for the ages!

The Heartache  

Four years ago today, the bottom fell out of my marriage. I started down the longest, darkest path of my life.

I prayed for God to somehow speed up the process and just let me skip right to the end of the long, dark road. His answer was, “No, but trust me.”

Not only had my marriage hit rock bottom, but now God was not answering my prayer in the way I wanted.

After many months, my feet firmly planted, I decided to stand for redemption.

The Hurt 

Choosing to live life with a deep faith in God does not mean that we are immune to life’s hurts, though. While my stand was for redemption, the consequences of my husband’s choices lingered.

The pain was overwhelming at times; the fear was palpable.

Whether I stayed in my marriage or left it, I would have pain.

Life seems rather bleak when there is hurt at every turn.

Looking back, though, I’ve seen Jesus at every step, and though there was pain, there was also His love and peace.

The Hope 

The road has been long, and I think many of us want to give up along the way.

This is an exhausting journey, and honestly, I understand why someone would give up.

I asked God to do something with all of this mess of a marriage, for His glory. I wanted my stand to be worthwhile, not just a nice sentiment that would eventually backfire.

Though I told God I wouldn’t write about marriage, that’s what He placed on my heart. As I followed His leading, He started to bring women who needed hope.

Not only that, but hope has reignited in my own marriage.

The Healing 

A lot of healing has happened in my marriage.

The choices my husband made cannot be undone, neither can the consequences.

But the consequences of my choice to stand for redemption can’t be undone either.

While I’ve stood for redemption, I’ve had the opportunity to extend love, grace, compassion, and hope. What are the consequences of those choices? They range from an open heart willing to continue to grow in love, to a heart willing to be hurt if my husband was not willing to move forward in our marriage.

Thankfully, God has worked tremendously in my husband’s life. He has gone to work to accept his choices and their consequences, and to work through the healing process in his life. As he has worked through healing in his own life, it’s opened the door for healing in our marriage.

The Holy 

There’s no doubt in my mind that the devil intended all of this for harm, and probably even for death. While our marriage didn’t die, and while neither of us died, our way of life died. Everything that was a part of our life was taken away.

So what do you do when you’re in a hole and can’t find a way out?

You sit and wait, you let God cover you with His wings (Psalm 91).

In due time, when God has had time to work in your heart, you’ll start to see the next path He has for you.

See, my story – this part of it – started in pain and sadness. No one would have blamed me if I walked away, but that wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted my family. I wanted the holiness of a covenant marriage and the beauty of God’s redemption.

So I waited – I waited on God and stepped back while He did what only He could do: redeem and restore. I’m so grateful that my husband had a heart willing to work on restoration in our marriage.

“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
– I Corinthians 15:55

The Lord has worked to ease the heartache and hurt. He’s provided hope and healing. This has come through a lot of work in my husband’s heart and in mine.

But even before that, the possibility of redemption started at the cross.

 

None of us would have the possibility of redemption without Jesus dying on the cross.

So while I’ve shared my story here over the years, the story you need to know most is the greatest love story ever.

Friend, if you are looking for hope, you need to know that it starts with Jesus. It starts with accepting His free gift of salvation for your life. He loves you so much that He wants you in Heaven with Him for eternity. But in order to do that, there had to be a payment in blood. A death had to occur for your life to be redeemed, so God sent His Son, Jesus, to die for your sins.

This was not a death that Jesus chose; rather it was appointed to Him by His Father. The Bible is clear that Jesus suffered extreme anguish, hoping and praying for another way to pay for our sins. (Matthew 26:36-46)

He was crucified on a cross, and was dead and buried. On the third day, though, He rose from the dead, conquering death. “Where, O death, is your victory?”

If you are looking for redemption, for hope, for an assurance of your eternal life, this simple prayer of faith is all that you need:

Dear Lord, thank you for loving me. Thank you for sending Jesus to die in my place, to provide the payment that was necessary for my sins. I accept your free gift of salvation and ask that you would be the Lord of my life. Guide and direct me as I live for you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

If you’ve prayed that prayer today, this is your day of salvation! Jesus paid the price for your eternal life; redemption for your sins was provided at the cross. His resurrection provided victory over death!

While my marriage is not perfect, I can tell you today that I have a redeemed and restored marriage, by the grace and mercy of God!

Today, four years later, I want you to know that my marriage is healing, but more than that, I want you to know the only One who could make that possible.

I could sit here and tell you all that I did, but that wouldn’t make a bit of difference because it wasn’t about what I did.

It’s all about Who holds my heart. And while my heart is for my husband, the truth is that my heart is God’s first.

So today, the love story I want you to know is of the God who loved us and sent His Son as a redemption for us.

From that story comes my story.

My God is a God of redemption and my story is a redemption story!

Finding Hope for Marriage and Motherhood

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

There are times in life when you find your people. They are the ones who understand your struggle and continue to encourage you in your journey. They are the ones who offer hope in the times of darkness, and encourage you to keep pressing on. Ruthie Gray is one of my people. She is strong in faith and encouragement, but she also appreciates a really good laugh in the middle of an ordinary day.

She reached out to me with some very encouraging and hopeful words for my marriage at a time when I was struggling. I remember thinking, “Wow, there really are people who understand that marriage can be messy.” In fact, some of you may be here on Ruthie’s recommendation as she shares this site as a resource for women who struggle with their marriage.

Ruthie serves as a mentor to other moms, sharing valuable insight that she learned along her parenting journey. From raising strong-willed children to dealing with anger as a mom, she has faced many of the frustrations we all encounter in parenting. She and her husband have raised four children and now have the joy of grandchildren in their family. She helps moms find their way in parenting, but also in a relationship with God.

Ruthie’s ministry also has a strong marriage component to it, because many of us who are moms are also wives. We’re learning the necessity of a strong relationship with our spouse in order to provide stability for our children. But how do you do that when your marriage feels unsteady and you feel fresh out of hope?

Do you feel fresh out of hope while dealing with marriage and motherhood? I'm sharing one of my favorite resources for marriage and motherhood. Here's hope!

My husband and I have three children and when things fell apart in our relationship, it was so hard to get up and help the kids. All I wanted to do was stay in bed, but they continued to need food, help with schoolwork, rides to therapy and piano lessons, so I had to function in some capacity.

How do you find the strength to manage your kids’ needs when your own marriage is in crisis?

Oh friend, get thee to Ruthie’s siteYou will find hope for marriage and motherhood.

Do you struggle to find hope for marriage & motherhood? Come be encouraged! Click To Tweet

I’m privileged to be sharing at her blog today, offering encouragement for moms and for marriage.

Be sure to poke around her site while you’re there. She and her husband headed into Florida in an RV as Florida began to brace for Hurricane Irma. Don’t worry, they found a safe place to ride out the storm. You can read her posts about that adventure.

You’ll find some much-needed humor, but also some deep truths for your marriage and motherhood.

Scriptures of Hope

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

The to-do list is long this week, and honestly, I don’t know if I’ve ever written so much in my life. There have been my own posts, posts for others who are sharing our book, social media posts, and to be honest, I’m just plain tired. But, this is not the time to stop!

Jen and I have developed some intense faith – a faith that has carried us through the darkest times. As we discussed what we might share with you as a bonus to go with Hope for the Hurting Wife we kept thinking about some of our favorite verses that God placed on our hearts.

Are you searching for hope? Do you feel alone in your struggle? We are offering these Scripture cards as a gift for you as we share Hope for the Hurting Wife

These verses have been on my heart at various points along this journey. When the road was too dark, I would stop and these are the verse that I would recite to my heart, to tell it the truth. These are the verses that I would write down and tuck in my pocket, or in my bag, or in my wallet, and carry them with me so that I would remember that I’m not alone.

Friends, while we all want our marriages to work out, the truth is that none of us know the final outcome. Only God does.

Our challenge, though, is to take our eyes off our problems, and focus completely on God. What we’ve learned through this process is that no matter what happens in your marriage, you’re going to need a rock solid relationship with the Lord.

If your marriage succeeds, praise God! You’re going to need that faith to fall back on as you continue to move forward.

If, however, your marriage is not restored, you can use your faith to help you get through to the next chapter in your life – because there is a next chapter!

Are you searching for hope? Do you feel alone in your struggle? We are offering these Scripture cards as a gift for you as we share Hope for the Hurting Wife

So as a bonus to go along with Hope for the Hurting wife, we’d love for you to download these 8 Scripture cards of hope (4 are shown here, click on the download at the end of the post). They have the same beautiful design as our book does, and these are God’s Word that we all need to hide in our hearts.

Marriage Advice to Remember

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here

For the past few months, I’ve focused on finishing the book we’ve been putting together. I’ve read emails, responded to hurt lives, prayed with women near and far, working to keep hearts pointed to Jesus and committed to marriage. While this has been a tremendous privilege, I’ve also realized just how much advice we listen to on a daily basis.

If you’re married, I have no doubt that you’ve received a lot of advice, just as I have. I believe a lot of it is given in love from very well-meaning people. But sometimes, it’s just plain hard to figure out what to do with some of that advice.

Do you remember all the marriage advice you received? Chances are, you've forgotten some of it. I'm sharing marriage advice to remember!

“Do this,” or, “Don’t do that.”

“Treat him this way,” or “Make sure to cook a meal he loves.”

“Decide on these important things before you get married,” or, “Don’t make the same mistakes I made.”

These are important pieces of advice to consider and each piece has value.

As I was compiling thoughts for our book, I really started to think back on marriage advice that my husband and I received, and I realized that for over 18 years now, one bit of advice has stuck in my head. One!

It wasn’t your typical marriage advice, but maybe that’s why it has stayed with me. This advice was simple, and it was actionable. It was something I could put into advice on my wedding day and so many days after that. I don’t remember who gave it to me, but it has impacted my life in a dramatic way that I now share it when I write out a wedding card.

So while I could give you some solid, heavy-duty marriage advice, I realize the advice that sticks with me is the small, simple 5-word sentence that someone gave to me.

Come over to Fulfilling Your Vows with me and see what marriage advice has stuck with me!

When You’ve Lost Hope Because Marriage is Hard

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

Marriage is hard work and sometimes we feel like we've just lost hope. Hope for the Hurting Wife offers hope and encouragement for struggling wives.

You’ve seen the announcements, you’ve walked in prayer with me, and today I’m thrilled to let you know that Hope for the Hurting Wife is available!

Hope for the Hurting Wife comes out of one of the darkest times in my life. It’s been nearly 4 years since things fell apart, and honestly, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel when I held this book. This book represents a few years of intense pain and loss.

But that’s not what I feel when I hold this book.

Marriage is hard work and sometimes we feel like we've just lost hope. Hope for the Hurting Wife offers hope and encouragement for struggling wives.

You see, I believe the devil thought that his scheme would kill my marriage, that maybe it would even bring physical death to my family.

While this part of my life has felt very much like standing up to a Goliath, I’ve been reminded that Goliath was defeated by one young man. David took up his weapon of choice, a stone for his slingshot, not a strong powerful sword. He threw off the common plan of attack, telling Saul that his kingly armor was too big to truly offer support. 

He faced his giant with only his faith in God and the knowledge God had given Him. 

Maybe that’s what our world needs – a few more people to stand up with their faith in God, to say, “This battle is the Lord’s!” 

As I hold this book, as I think about the role it plays in my life, I realize I’m no longer consumed with the story that this book represents.

Instead, I see a message of hope that God has brought out of my mess. I see a testimony that I hope will encourage and inspire others.   

Marriage is hard work and sometimes we feel like we've just lost hope. Hope for the Hurting Wife offers hope and encouragement for struggling wives.

 

My co-author, Jen Stults, and I, know the realities of a hard marriage. We know the feeling of wanting to leave our marriages because the struggle is too much. But we also know that God can work in the hardest of circumstances to bring true healing and redemption. We’re praising God for the ways He has worked in our marriages.

God has used this book to bring me healing as I work through healing in our marriage. It’s by the grace of God that my marriage is restored, and it’s through being able to offer hope to other wives that I’ve learned to find hope in my own marriage.

Our families have offered their full support as we have walked this redemption road, and for that we are eternally grateful. I was blessed and encouraged by these words from my dad a couple weeks ago:

John 12:24–“I tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies,
it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.”
This book was brought forth from near death,
perhaps in some ways a total surrender as a living sacrifice.
May it now bring for much fruit for God’s glory.
I am proud to be your father.

Yes, may this book truly bear fruit for the glory of God!

When I look at this book, I see a God-story that only He could write. I see a resource to help other women stand up against the Goliath in their lives, to fight off the schemes of the devil in their marriage. I see hope. 

I see REDEMPTION.

How to Hold on to Hope in a Struggling Marriage

By all accounts, we had a strong marriage. We served in the church and had a deep commitment to our faith. Our children pursued academic and extra-curricular activities with our full support. So many things were going well for our family.

We were in our 14th year of marriage on the day that everything fell apart. Suddenly, many things about my marriage were called into question. I felt utterly terrified by what played out before my eyes. Surely it must be a mistake, though they assured me it was not.

Is your marriage struggling? Are you uncertain of how to move forward? I know the feeling, and am sharing how to hold on to hope in a struggling marriage.

Over the next few months, my marriage went from bad to worse. The troubles that knocked at our door that morning seemed to only get worse as time went on. Not only did my marriage fall apart, but we lost friends, our church, and much more.

Why did God allow this to happen to me? I was doing everything right.

While this is a part of my story, it is not all of my story. Four years later I can look back to see how God has been at work in my marriage.

In the midst of the hurt, though, how do you hold on to hope? How do you rummage through the chaos and confusion to see hope? When someone has tossed a blanket of darkness over your life, how do you find hope?

Dear friend, that is exactly where faith comes in.

Our relationship with the Lord is not just for Sundays. It’s for the good days, the sunny days. It’s also for the dark days, the tough days, and for that awful Wednesday when the devil came knocking for my marriage.

In John 8:12, Jesus reminds us that He is the light of the world. So even when the darkness is very real, we can have hope because of our relationship with Jesus. He is our hope!

Today I’m sharing how to hold on to hope in a struggling marriage at Young Wives Club. I’m grateful to Hannah and Rosie at The Young Wives Club for inviting me to share on their site this week! Come join me at their blog to read this post.

3 Truths for When Marriage is Hard

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the disclosure here.

 

So many things have changed since that day. Some days I feel like my life is never really going to look the same, ever again. And if that’s where I focus, my story seems quite hopeless. So I choose to intentionally lift my eyes and remember that my help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth. (Psalm 121)

That October morning dawned full of sunshine and full of hope. I looked out the window at the crisp, clear morning. It was less than ten minutes later, though, when the knock on the door changed everything.

My marriage of 14 years crumbled in front of my eyes. The unexpected truth came out and my life fell apart in that moment.

The truth is that marriage is hard sometimes. It's hard to stay hopeful in the struggle. Here are 3 truths for when marriage is hard.

 

 

I had to find a way to keep going, even though my marriage hit rock bottom. I had to find a way to sort through the mess and see the truth.

The truths that I’m sharing today were the truths that I fell back on when this mess started.

The opening lines of Isaiah 43 offered such hope for me.

“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
    I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior….
Isaiah 43:1b-3a 

The waters were deep, the river was wide, the fire was intense, just as they are for anyone who deals with a traumatic incident.

But God.

His promises in Isaiah brought comfort. He knew the path we had to travel and He did not let go of us.

Today I’m sharing 3 Truths For When Marriage Is Hard.
