I use to be that wife that allowed the opinions of others to control my marriage. I use to be that wife that used her words as weapons. I was even that wife that allowed my own insecurities (low self-esteem)to threaten the health of our marriage . I am now that wife that understands her purpose as a wife, the power of her words and is now comfortable in her own skin.
Early in my marriage, I use to say "marriage is hard". To be honest, I still say that now. Marriage takes two people committed to the covenant they made before God and man. My husband and I got married November 25, 1989. Things were so different back then, but the one thing that remains constant, no matter the number of years, is marriage takes work. Being intentional about your words and your actions help alleviate those roadblocks that we sometimes face in marriage. Over the years, I have developed a passion to inspire couples to grow towards oneness in their marriage and not allow their everyday reality to determine the health of their marriage. Challenges will come. How you deal with those challenges will help determine the success of your marriage.
I am a certified marriage educator, mentor and coach. I have been working in marriage ministry for over 19 years. I am excited to be on this journey with you and pray that this group is a blessing to you and your marriage.
