In the difficult stretches of marriage, it's important for me to remember that my husband is not the enemy but we have an Enemy. Here are a few “marriage helps” I have tucked away.
We are not in a challenging stretch right now but I’m really working on the second part of #5 (connection cues).
1. There will be seasons when your feelings of love dry up. Do the acts of love despite your feelings. (Timothy Keller) Ask God to help you do one act of kindness today.

My #1 Human Priority

My #1 Human Priority
I learned this truth as a young wife in the Called to be a Keeper Study by Lori Merrill. But if I am not careful, I can let my children and my commitments slide into that number one spot. It's not intentional. It happens subtly.

8 Prayers for Men and Boys

8 Prayers for Men and Boys
This photo was taken 8 years ago before we moved from Oklahoma to the desert. And now the boys are 18, 15, 13, and 11.

Here are 8 prayers for our men & boys: Read More

She Does Him Good and Not Harm All the Days of Her Life

She Does Him Good and Not Harm All the Days of Her Life

I was often negative about my husband; if not in public, then certainly privately towards him, or at least in my mind. I’m sure I also belittled him by making him the “butt” of a few jokes. And no doubt, I embarrassed him when I was a young wife, whether intentionally or not. These are all examples of doing our husbands harm... Read More
