Radically Change Your Reality

April 16, 2015 by

Our daughter and I watched a show with a cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy, together last week. The cat owner was a famous young woman who often tweeted about her cat and used some dreadful names for him in her tweets. Galaxy said something so profound: Words have power. What you speak becomes your reality. He […]

Thankfully, God Doesn’t Need “Space”

March 30, 2015 by

This week, on my blog http://www.peacefulwife.com, we are examining a topic that is VERY difficult for many wives – giving space to their husbands. I think that is pretty counterintuitive to a lot of us as women, because many of us get married because we DON’T want to have space. We want constant emotional/spiritual/verbal connection. […]

From a precious Christian sister who is currently single and in her 30s: It’s Thursday night.

You’ve hit the gym and killed your 4th […]

But, it makes […]

“If I Obey God, Then He Owes Me a Wonderful Husband and Children, Right?”

Sometimes we latch on to God’s commands to us to obey Him (i.e.: practicing chastity, not using drugs, not being addicted to alcohol, not lying/cheating/gossiping, loving others, giving to the poor, tithing, practicing honesty, being moral people, going to church, praying and reading our Bibles) and we assume that if we do these things, then, […]

We are continuing to follow GraceAlone’s progress as she began this journey to become a godly wife about 3 weeks ago. I hope to correspond with a few women who are willing to share their stories (married and single) so that maybe many more wives might be blessed and encouraged as they embark on their […]
