Dealing With Wounds From Our Upbringing


This article is very helpful to me. God put us together. And let the wife see that she respects her husband. Your email address will not be published. Hopefully that is no longer an issue in your marriage.

How important is your marriage to you? Do you just want to survive in it or do you want your marriage to thrive? You can do so in our private, virtual mentoring community. Just click the image below to find out more! These are all very similar to the ten rules I listed off in my mini marriage book I created.

Thanks so much Crystal! These are the things I try and do in my marriage to Chris. Chris wants to lead our household and I want him to lead as well. Love your transparency, Rosie! Thanks for sharing your story.

By you wanting him to lead, that in itself is a huge step. Hope it will minister to you! This is a great way to start the new year!! We just celebrated 10 years, and although it is a second for us both, I truly believe God has joined us! Thank you for sharing this post! Love hearing about your new start, Krista! I discovered your website after realising that I was pulling my own house with my hands. Thank you sharing and indeed things have become better and I told God during the crossover service that I have chosen to submit to His will by submitting to my husband but I need His grace as there have cases of violence in the past and God has been helping me as I no longer get offended easily, I now allow him to lead and no longer give him the cold shoulder treatment anymore.

This is so awesome to hear, Adeola! Hopefully that is no longer an issue in your marriage. If so, get some help and direction from your pastor so you can walk through this.

I so need to take this to heart. But now this happened…. Keep following the Lord. Choose to please Him and Him alone. Only He can minister to you and heal you. I did things my way for 18 years and destroyed our marriage with the disrespect I showed my husband. God has transformed my heart and healed our marriage. It takes being broken into a thousand pieces to be rebuilt. I love my husband with a new love and cherish the gift the Lord has given. Thanks so much for sharing your story here, Kim.

I know it will bless others! Thank you so much. I really enjoyed this list and am striving hard to be the wife I was created to be. I am currently reading your wives of the bible and I am constantly encouraged. I just wanted to say that this message is a Blessing; This is what it mean to be a blessing to others. In , I deliver this same message to others about marriage.

The foundation of marriage represents LOVE, without it your marriage will never survive. Thank you for the word of encouragement. My husband stepped out of my marriage which we had been separated for 2yrs married 33yrs total 35yrs. He is back end the hom. I fine myself wanting to strike out at him because I dont trust him. I know I must trust God in this process but as a human it is so hard. I can be sharp in my tone which brings conflict.

There have been a lack of respect on my part. Is there any advice on how to get past the distrust. I hope this helps! Thank you so much for this message Jolene. It has truly opened my eyes. We hv been married only 3 years and I am struggling with trusting and respecting my husband after cheating on me several times.

I feel like he is not in our marriage to stay…. You are worthy of being treated with respect and love, because you bear the image of God and you seek His will. I have been married to a drinking husband for almost a year now. He gets depressed then drinks. Not weeks on end, but a day or to three days I guess. He has an illness and the last thing he needs is alcohol. His illness can cause depression. I did think, at one time, that he was an alcoholic, but my opinion, if you can go weeks without alcohol, you can easily quit.

He says he drinks when he gets to thinking about not being able to provide. He cannot work, cause of illness, and is trying for disability. He is not one to handle woes that come his way. With all this said. I have done it all. Threatening to leave, crying, pleading, you name it. So, with this also said. I am what you may call a good wife. A good wife, not perfect, just a good, rare, wife. So my question is do I go on. No one can answer that, especially if I cannot myself.

God put us together. Not a perfect start, but I loved him then and still do. Mistake or what, we married. Gods vows we took to stay together til death do us part. So, will I continue in our marriage? Probably so, I still love him. That has not changed, nor will it ever I assume.

One thing I must add, he does not cuss me out, hit me, or abuse me in any shape or form. He drinks, its his abuse to himself, not to me. When he drinks he is ridiculous as all are when tipsy or drunk.

He is a great, husband that treats me very well. Especially for one who cannot provide. But of course, when he drinks, its upsetting and not pretty.

Its just hard to leave a person who treats you so well when he is sober. We are both Christians. God has helped this man, delivering him from the blackest pit and continues to do so. He has the best of testimonials, surpassing mine by far. I was previously married to a man for 30 years, until he was unfaithful to our pastors daughter, just 24 years old at the time, getting her pregnant on top of all else.

I had no problem leaving that man, God gave me strength, courage, and the mental peace to cut him out of my life without as much as a crying spell.

What a useful post! I should do one of these for my local area! I like the idea of going somewhere else for a party rather than hosting at home!

I will have to check out some of those! Some I have never heard of like the water park one! Thanks for the tips. I know it can be expensive but honestly there are things they can do at these places you would never be able to do at home. Some great options here. My little girl turns 3 in just 2 weeks. Thanks for the reminder that I need to plan something. We had a kids fitness party for our 4 year old last year at Gecko kids in Hampton. The kids had a blast. Great recommendation, thanks Neets!

Fantastic list, thanks for sharing. Circus parties are awesome. You are totally right about the expense of home parties. I have never ever heard of so many great places to source a birthday party for kids!

I love Melbourne for that very reason, lots for kids to do We have held many birthday parties over the years, and while they are fun for kids they are not fun for us parents — I so would outsource in a heart beat!! We have hosted a number of outsourced parties for my eldest 9yrs , and two at home for my youngest 4yrs.

All have been fun, but the outsourced have been equivalent or less cost yet excellent value. Gourmet Kids is a two-time winner for us, as is Petit Atelier. My son had a party at Icehouse and it had turned out really well. This year we took 10 of his friends to a cool venue called Virtual Reality Insanity. Even i tried the virtual reality machine.
