Throughout these past several years, I have been asked to pray for a woman dealing with hard circumstances in her marriage. Whether it’s sin on her husband’s part, minimal finances, abuse, hopelessness, wives who admit their own sin or any other reason, I’ve been privileged to pray with  and for these women as they learn […]

Eating right–check Weighing regularly–check Lots of water–check Regular exercise–check Portion control–check Taking my vitamins–check Journaling my eating–check Exercising my willpower–check I think […]

Praying Scripture for my husband~Repost

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

(a little late!) I believe that praying Scripture is a powerful way to pray. Jesus used Scripture when he prayed. Matthew 4:1-11 (temptation in the wilderness) Prayer is also part of our armor Ephesians 6:12-17. In this passage, there is no hint of failure. Only standing firm if we wear the armor. When we pray, […]

When I spoke with Lee tonight, he said he ran into a couple of his nephews today. He was talking about what’s going on in our life right now. He said they all went to a friend’s house and sat down and his nephews prayed for him. I found that incredibly encouraging and heartwarming. What […]

God’s Protection

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Last week, we had a long snowy day. Lee worked late and although he doesn’t come home to us at night, I usually talk to him and know what’s going on. I hadn’t heard from him so I thought he must have been working later than usual. He works out in the country and I […]

Prayer Partners

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

When I share our story, I don’t necessarily do it to gain prayer partners. In the very beginning, I shared because I knew other women must be living a similar life and I wanted to encourage them to trust in the Lord. As time went on, more and more people found us and heard about […]
