Joel and Kathy Davisson, the creators of God Save My Marriage, recently asked for our testimony and we realized that we actually hadn't really written about it or made a video of it; so we thought we'd get a bit more specific today.
You've probably figured out by now that the marriage ministry we're involved in really stands on a husband's toes with regard to how God calls him to treat his wife. A wife has a role too - Annalea talks about this today.
We all have dreams about what married life will be like. A little girl dresses up like a princess and dreams of being loved by a handsome prince; a little boy pretends he's a super hero who rescues the fair maid.
So what happens?
Even though they know their relationship with their wife is suffering, many husbands will resist efforts of marriage restoration. He tells himself that if she would just accept him as he is and recognize all he does for her, then everything would be fine.
Protecting your marriage is vitally important for the health and longevity of the relationship. This may seem like a no-brainer but you'd be surprised at how many Christian husbands and wives don't make this a priority in their lives.
How we wish we could fully express to you the breakthroughs that took place for each of the couples and the taste of renewed hope that God poured upon them as they left our Marriage Intensive. We've tried to give you a feel in this week's video.
Thinking that the large elephant sitting in your living room (following you around wherever you go) can be ignored if you give it a wide enough berth each time you pass by will solve nothing. It's time to start dealing with this now and we can help!
Passive/Aggressive men or, as we like to call them, Silent Knights, are some of the most verbally & emotionally abusive husbands and are often the hardest to reach. Today we speak on this subject which and give insight as to the how comes & how to's.
When a Christian husband brings healing to his wife, many of her issues and past baggage will disappear. What's left over she can work through with God.
Restoring your marriage may seem like the most impossible task on earth. It may fill you with a mixture of dread, hope, pessimism and longing; and you will ask yourself many times if it's really worth the effort. We decided it was...here's why.
This week we're mainly addressing husbands and how they love their wives. Is it on your terms guys or is the way she needs you to love her? Is it to serve you or is it the way God called you to love her...unconditionally?
This week we talk about the importance of making love, especially in the restoration process. A husband and wife bonding together regularly in this most precious and amazing way can make a huge difference in the success of the marriage.
Today, we share how a husband needs to be with his wife when she gives him her honest answer to the question, "Does your husband love you?". This way, she can give a glowing report when she's asked this soul-searching question.
There were times in the beginning of our restoration that we felt like quitting. I would get scared & Michael would get frustrated. In this week's Testimoney Tuesday video we share what this looked like for us and how we overcame it.
When Michael began to understand that everything in me is designed by God to work toward a bonded relationship with him, he discovered that he did indeed have the perfect wife for him.
Would you live in a shack with your husband? I would with mine if I had to. Wanna know why? Because Michael is treating me like a queen. Here's a short video explaining how far a wife will go with her husband when her heart is being listened to.
At one point, you had a dream of what your marriage was going to be like. You grew up, fell in love & got married; now, reality may not match your cherished dream. Take Heart! You CAN have a dream-come-true marriage.
When we were in the bad days of our marriage, we looked for answers as to "Why?" It was more than just the obvious stuff that was happening between us and the answer you're looking for is so simple you won't believe it!
