When Kris’s birthday started getting closer, I didn’t know what to do. Last year, I planned an elaborate birthday for him, but this year I’ve been pregnant and busy. How do you plan your husband’s birthday under stress? This year, he didn’t really know what he wanted and was completely fine not doing anything, but there was no way I …
I am an idealist to the max if you’ve ever met one. I see life through rose-colored glasses, I believe in fairytales, was raised on Disney princess movies and love stories. When Kris and I got married, we were so affectionate, protective and loving to each other. When older couples saw us, they would say “Oh you’re in the honeymoon …
Within one week of marriage he was going out to concerts with women that I didn’t know and drinking himself so silly that I wouldn’t hear from him for almost a 24 hour time period.
How many times have you crawled to the end of the week with hardly any strength left? Or snapped at everyone and wondered why you’re so on-edge? Or realized that it had been forever since you’d had a good, long laugh with a friend? Too often we neglect ourselves because “I just need to get this done.” We make everything on our To Do lists a priority, while forgetting that we ourselves are a priority too.
raying for each other can change how you interact with each other throughout the day and week. Because my husband and I have made our daily prayers together a priority, we usually find our tones are more gentle towards each other, we both feel supported, and we ultimately know that God is in control. Whatever we might be going through as a couple or as individuals, we know that our marriage is being cared for by the God of our lives.
Being a wife is a full time job, did you have a chance to read the job description before you signed on the dotted line? Maybe you should have clarified “cooking dinner every night in lingerie and high heels” or “wash his sweaty gym clothes” what about “clean pooped in toilets weekly”. This job isn’t very glamorous.
At the time I would have never thought of it as a blessing. And I would never wish a loss like this on anyone. But sadly 1 in 5 women will experience it.
In this podcast episode of Relationships Radio, we discuss the difference between loving someone and being in love. [audio:http://traffic.libsyn.com/relationshipsradio/Relationship_Radio_3.mp3] My mentor asked me the other day the difference between loving someone and being in love. To love someone without being in love with them is when you can give of yourself for their benefit, but you are unable or unwilling …
Over the years I have collected a series of tips that have helped me figure out how to engage my sexual energy. They might seem simple to some, but they’ve been my lifeline to the sexual connection I want to have with my husband.
Our men long to know they are appreciated for their work and I can think of nothing better than for my husband to walk through that door and find himself in the magical setting of a peaceful,undisturbed and inviting home. It’s a small way of showing my appreciation. How can you show appreciation to your husband this week?
I often look at my husband Andrew with awe and wonder. And I have said to him many times: “I
wish you could see how I see you.” And that is one of prayers as well, that he know he is so
loved not just by me, but by our gracious God all the days of his life.
Stop, Communicate & Listen. The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple. – Psalm 119:130 When my husband, Andrew and I first started dating, we established a relationship rule that we still abide by today. That rule is: no cell phones at the table. With our busy schedules, the time we have together is precious, …
My husband, David, and I made the decision not to live together before getting married. Actually, we both made this decision on our own before we met even each other. Before we got married, people would often ask if we were living together. When I said no, they would ask if I was nervous about marrying someone before living with him. My answer was no.
“In a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble. If a man cleanses himself from the latter he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful, to the master and prepared to do any good work.” – 2 Timothy …
Lately, in my marriage, I have been a lot more conscientious about doing little things to please Kris or make his life easier. I even went on a fast to pray for breakthrough in the area of having a servants heart. I know for a lot of people, serving is their favorite thing to do and brings them loads of …
