When You Don’t Look Away

The hurting wife and the pain unveiled . . .

I’m going to be vulnerable here, and frankly, I’m a bit scared. However, I can’t stay silent anymore.

My heart is broken. Marriages are crumbling around me, and I so badly want to put up a wall to help fortify them. I know it isn’t new news that many marriages are suffering these days, but it’s still heartbreaking. I’m watching even Christian marriages wilt away, while others push through and suffer in silence.

I’m going to say it. I’m going to say what is so difficult to utter.

Pornography is killing marriages!

It is one of the biggest culprits, if not the biggest.

There. It’s out. I said the “P” word. I called out the thing that is lurking in the shadows. Pornography has become this ravaging animal that viciously mauls everything in its path and leaves many wounded.

How can I even talk about this?

What do I even know about it?

28 Things I’ve Learned As A Military Wife

Alexis34

Today is my birthday! It’s my Golden Birthday, to be exact! Yes, that means I am now 28 on the 28th. So crazy! I feel like the closer I get to 30, the less old it feels. When I was younger, 30 seemed so old, but now I wonder why I always thought that. Maybe I am old and am just in denial, or maybe 30 is the new 20. Who knows?

Anyway, to celebrate turning 28, I thought I would keep the idea of doing a list on my birthday, for the number of years that I am. I originally was going to do, “28 Things I’ve Learned Throughout My Life,” but then I thought it would be better to talk about things that I’ve learned as a military wife. I’ve learned quite a lot, some humorous and some serious, but all have helped make me a better support for my husband and his job (I hope)!

Guest Post: 5 Tips for Communicating Through Your Next PCS

I’m so excited to be introducing you to Becca from Making Room! Becca contacted me back when I had asked for people willing to write guest posts for my blog while I took my month-long blog hiatus. I’m so glad she did! I have thoroughly enjoyed reading her blog and seeing all the interesting sights of Italy. You see, Becca’s husband is in the military, and they were stationed in Italy for a few years. They are now in the middle of a PCS back to the states. Becca writes about their experiences in Italy but also discusses topics such as, simplicity parenting and the art of hospitality. Today, she is taking over my blog to talk about how to successfully communicate during a PCS. Please be sure to stop by Becca’s blog and show some love!

The “R” Word

Relationships

The “R” word, some are running from it and others are running around like a chicken with their heads chopped off in order to find the perfect person.  I’m talking about “Relationships.” The time in one’s life where we discuss our perfect match with our friends, make lists, read books and magazines, you name it, anything to make us feel as if we are getting closer to our perfect match. Will we ever really find our perfect match? I truly believe that Continue reading

Guest Post: Family-Shaping Relationships and A Giveaway!

I am so excited to tell you that today’s blog post is brought to you by Sierra & Faith of Winks and Eyerolls! These lovely ladies are two beautiful sisters who share a blog. They are incredibly close and love to share about fun fashion tips, recipes, DIY projects, and the journey through parenthood as a first time mom. Because there are two of them, and they both have unique life moments, I asked if they would do two blog posts for me. So, you will be seeing them again next week! The reason I asked them to share two posts is because one sister is married and the other is dating. I knew many people would benefit with something from either side. So, today we are going to hear from the married sister! These girls are both equally sweet, and I know they would LOVE if you stopped by their blog! (Be sure to keep reading, because they are offering some great giveaway prizes at the end!)
