On Being an Armour-Bearer

I commented a few days ago to a group of strugglers and their spouses that those of us who are spouses are “armour bearers” and affirmed how deeply this journey with our spouses affects us.  Like most of us photo © 2007 Myrrien | more info (via: Wylio)married to strugglers, my friend has noticed how […]

Follow-up to Femininity

photo © 2008 Mike Melrose | more info (via: Wylio)A while ago, I wrote about how I’ve become confident and comfortable in my femininity.  It’s taken me a while to realize why this change took place, but I had a flash of insight at the CPM conference. I commented that once my husband started to […]

Brokenness

photo © 2006 David Goehring | more info (via: Wylio)The tagline on the blog used to read “one wife’s journey through her husband’s sexual addiction to wholeness and healing.”   I changed that this morning to read “one wife’s journey through her husband’s sexual brokenness to wholeness and healing.” Why the change? I think “sexual […]

Believing in Your Spouse

photo © 2010 Marlon Cureg | more info (via: Wylio) Most of us who are married to people with SGA who fight against that unwanted inclination are deep believers. We believe in our spouses and we often believe in the power of God to make changes. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be here – we’d […]

Hope

We’re back from Midland and the Marriage & Mentors Conference … what a wild weekend!  It was such a relief to be in a place where it was ‘safe’ to be ourselves and know that we were all there to support each other and learn.  I had been thinking about and praying for some people […]

Apologies

When we left our home state, we had filmed our “story” – at least, in part.  Our church used our video (about a 5 minute clip) as part of a series called FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions.  Some of the topics in the series included “How Can I Know the Bible is True?” and “How […]

Forgiveness – full & true?

We are settling in to our new location and decorating our apartment.  It’s been a solid 15 yrs since I’ve lived in an apartment – there are definitely things I like (not having to do the maintenance ourselves) and things I’m not so crazy about (hearing the dog upstairs run around like a maniac at […]

the ultimate removal of the masks

I have been insanely busy lately – my apologies for not writing for the past 6+ weeks.  We are preparing to move across country and needless to say, my time is more than well-spoken for right now.  This is the last day before the moving truck arrives and as I look around the house, I […]

Nervous, but Anticipating

One of the blogs in my RSS reader is “Signs of a Struggle,” where Thom relates his challenges with SGA.  I appreciate Thom’s writing and his candor about his struggle.  A while ago, he wrote about a church in Midland, Texas called Stonegate Fellowship and their Cross Power Ministries Marriage Conference.  This Southern Baptist church […]

More on Gayle Haggard

I read on Charisma’s website that Gayle Haggard has a new book out.   Why I Stayed: The Choices I Made In My Darkest Hour is definitely on my “to read” list, but what is fascinating to me is how many people either have judged or will judge her without understanding her story.  They lack […]
