Part Two – Be Informed. Know the Facts Last week we talked about the dangers of pornography in marriage from a Biblical perspective. This week let’s get informed about some of the facts surrounding this issue. There is much debate about whether or not pornography is actually addictive, especially among those in the mental health community. Much of this is due to the fact that as more and more information surfaces, “the experts” are having a really hard time defining what an addiction even is. New technology has provided a wealth of information about how the human brain works that just isn’t what they expected. Trying to fit thisRead More →

Part One – Know Who You Are. Know Why It Matters  A few weeks ago, I had an experience that has rocked me to my core. Since that day I have been overwhelmed with a burden for the generation of women who identify as millennials. Many in this young group of ladies are entering the early years of marriage. My eyes have been opened to an issue they’re dealing with that breaks my heart. An issue that sends me to my knees.   It comes as no surprise to me that the world at large has turned a blind eye to the life-shattering dangers of pornography, but I was stunned to find that even among “moral”Read More →

  A Poem of Thanksgiving  I’m going to do something a little different this week. Bear with me. Life has been moving so fast lately. I feel like Bilbo described in The Lord of the Rings, “Like butter scraped across too much bread.”   So I’m going to take a moment and just breathe.  I’m going to take time to reflect on my God, and to praise Him.  Through the month of November, I will be doing a series on Redeeming Thanksgiving, but I thought it would be fun to get us in the mood a little early this year with a poem written from my heart to the Lord. Enjoy.  When life speeds up, andRead More →

I feel like I should start this post out with a giant disclaimer, because I really don’t feel qualified to write something so audacious so early in this process. It’s too soon to be able to tell if this is going to last, or even know for sure that it’s real. It’s too soon to claim any level of expertise.  I’m NOT an expert. I’m simply a student of the Word of God. As I walk this difficult road, I am looking to Him to show me truth, and I believe He’s led me to a passage that does exactly that.  Of course, I’m also a wife who is deeply in love withRead More →
