Wives World ~ Be Still!

I was brought to a whole new level of understanding concerning God’s occasional command to Be Still. Coming off a dizzying schedule of work and suffering from a minor cold that went into major laryngitis, I was forced to literally be still! Ever tried not saying a word for 24 hours? WOW! What an amazing…

Wives World ~ The Shame of Depression

I hear about women and men ashamed about their depression all the time. Even though their life might appear perfect to those around them, they are “faking it, until they make it.” Unfortunately, the combination of keeping the secret of depression and being shamed about it only creates more of the same…depression and shame.

Wives World ~” I’m Invisible”

Wives World ~ Abuse and Intimacy

The enemy loves disrupting our ability to be intimate. Of course because intimacy with Jesus Christ is the closest to heaven that we will ever be on earth. And someday…for eternity…we will have it 24/7. If we are unable to have intimacy, then we cannot get close to the ONE who makes our days go…
