Hello and Welcome to My Blog!

This is where I begin my journey with you, Christian wives everywhere. As I seek the Lord for grace to share testimonies and words of encouragement about marriage, it is my hope that you will: be strengthened to live with your husbands in peace, be encouraged to live according to biblical principals
be grateful for the gift of marriage and...be open to sharing comments here with other wives

I never considered myself a writer, but I am following God as I write to and for you. I hope and pray your marriage will be blessed!

In His Service,


Just Say No!

Just Say No!

My phone rang. My girlfriend was on the other end. Her voice was weak as she said “Lisa, I have a prayer request”. As I inquired about the request she began to sob. Her husband had expressed a desire to give up on their marriage. She was hurt and did not know what to do….

I was not sure what to do either. I thought for a moment, asked a few questions, and then asked her if I could come over. She agreed. I hung up the phone, talked to my husband about leaving the house, and prayed that God would show up in this situation.

What was I going to do?

I remember that day. I felt the way she did. I heard the same words she had…. What did God do for me? A girlfriend came to my house and held me while I cried. That was my mission. Sometimes we just need a girlfriend to come hug us while we cry.

As I drove I prayed. Lord, soften her husband’s heart. It is in your hands (Proverbs 21:1). Turn it towards you and towards his wife. Comfort her. Give her peace and let them speak life and not death into their marriage from this point forward (Proverbs 18:21).

I parked and entered her home. It is warm and beautiful. The Lord was there. I spoke to her husband. He was cordial but did not want to visit with me. I was just thankful that he did not object to my coming.

As I spoke to her, we talked about Jesus. I reminded her that he loves her and how she must keep her eyes on him. In times of crisis she must read her Bible and believe God’s truth. She has to be determined to block out the lies from the enemy and remember that she has victory in Christ Jesus. We prayed and agreed that none of this was too hard for our God!

I drove back home and spent more time in prayer. Today I am just saying No!

No She is not a bad wife

No She did not marry the wrong man

No She cannot be strong all by herself

No She cannot pray all by herself

No God has not left her, nor is he punishing her

No She cannot give up or quit

In times of crisis, we must call on one another. I beg you to stand with me today against the enemy of marriage. I ask you to search your heart and pray for just one wife who is hurting. Go to the Lord on behalf of one wife who thinks she is a failure. Put your arm around one wife who looks like she needs a hug. Speak words of encouragement to just one wife in Jesus name.

I could not have made it to the other side without some of God’s women fighting for me. Let God use you to support another married woman. Get mad enough to fight for other wives who are in crisis. Use your weapons of prayer and praise to combat the enemy and his lies.

I beg you today to realize that we are God’s women and we live in our marriages… on purpose.

Join me today and seek God on behalf of the wives in crisis and let’s watch God move …..Together.
