The Beautiful Wife

I have had the privilege to be in a small group called The Beautiful Wife. We are studying this book "The Beautiful Wife" By Sandy Ralya. When starting this group I found out that when these groups are going on Sandy herself is praying over us. Not only our church, but her...the very author of her book is praying for us.  You can email her to let her know you are hosting this group and she encourages you through special messages and prayer. I just think this is an amazing way to connect with an author who is passionate about women becoming a more beautiful wife!
     Throughout the last 6 weeks we have read, studied and journaled topics from Self-Care to Inviting Romance into your marriage. It has been a very deep, emotional and eye opening 6 weeks for me. There are areas in my marriage that were quietly hidden that have been opened raw and healed through prayer, journaling and sharing with this amazing group of women that I have come to love and support.

Do you Apologize to your Children?

Things spun out of control at work or home the rest of the day and when the evening comes you are so beyond frustrated out it comes.....harsh words to our kids. I've lashed out many times before, it's like you just snap and it can't be controlled. You know what? It's ok! We all have bad days, you're doing a terrific job, Mama! Don't let it ruin you! It's what we do during the next few moments that I as a parent have come to view as extremely important and necessary! I stop what I am doing and I pull Z…

5 Love Languages

My husband and I are leading ( I say this loosely as I feel we are just hosting and God is moving through us) a 5 Love Languages group with the most amazing 5 couples. Everyone has been putting forth such effort to read and learn from these chapters so far.  We are diving in to each love language now and over the next few weeks we will be actively trying to learn our spouses love language in order to help develop a deeper intimacy with our spouse. I know from speaking to everyone we are all in different seasons of marriage; some have children, some have newborns, others are expecting and we have all been through our share of trials an adventures. So each are taking away some new tidbit of information to put forth in their marriage to strengthen and renew that lost "love" feeling.
    Throughout the past weeks we have issued a challenge to the couples. The first week was to sit and talk with no children, phones or interruptions for 5 solid minutes.(For Quality Time Love …
