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,


When Prayer Changes People

“Give my husband a new wife, and let it be me”. Stormie OMartian wrote this in her book the Power of a Praying Wife. I read it for the first time during my separation over nine years ago. What was she talking about? I could not imagine needing to change anything about myself and I was not going to pray for that. After all, he was the one who needed to change.

Today, I pray for change daily so that my husband gets the good thing God promised him in Proverbs 18:22. What happened to make me ask for change?

• I realized that God loves my husband just like he loves me. I often act like God loves me more.

• When he messes up, God forgives him just like he forgives me. I am often unforgiving.

• God respects my husband and has given him the responsibility of taking care of me. I often disrespect my husband by fighting for control over our family.

• God thinks highly of my husband and made him in His own image. I often don’t think much of him at all.

Instead of being a suitable helper I often act like the destroyer of his manhood. Then God showed me… ME. ...I was not perfect and both God and my husband know it.

Today I pray, “Give my husband a new wife, and let it be me”. I pray:

• Lord shut my mouth when my husband talks. I want to hear him clearly.

• Let him be satisfied with me, the wife of his youth

• Help me to remember and to do what he asks of me (the small things like paying a bill, making an appointment, or pick up something from the store).

• Give me a smile when I look at him.

• Let me accept his compliments graciously

• Help me to cook what he likes to eat more often

• Help me to sleep lighter so I notice when he comes to bed… so he can smile a lot more

• Help me to give fewer commands and opinions

These may seem like crazy prayer requests but, incorporating them into my everyday life is a challenge. I could not do it without praying for it every day. The results are a blessing. My marriage is changed because God constantly changes me.

When I measure myself against a Holy and perfect God, I fall short. I am a horrible wife and need to be made over but because of Jesus, I am a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:11).

Because of who He is… my husband has a new wife…. and Jesus let it be ME!!!!!



  1. What a precious, humble heart you have. It is only by His grace that we can be the wives He made us to be. And because you are looking up and leaning in, that is EXACTLY the wife He wants you to be. I'm on the journey with you, sister.
