To the Wife Who Wants to Stay…
This was a post I didn’t intend to write, but God laid it on my heart and it was a blessing to me as I wrote it.
(And this is a post I’ve written some time later, while still going through the growth process.)
I try to be open here, to share my heart, to let you all know what God is doing.
When I first started blogging, I told God I wouldn’t write about marriage. Many experts already write well on that topic. When my own marriage took a hard hit, I realized God was giving me a different voice in that niche. I did not want this voice, but it’s mine now, just the same.
I took a stand for redemption. Then I stepped out in faith trusting that if God was calling me to stay, He would redeem the mess I found myself in.

Friends, if we dare to trust God, to really take Him at His word, we will be so blessed to see what He does. And if you’re at a point where you’re ready to begin to step forward in faith, even just a little, you’re going to want to pick up Grace Goals. It’s a great program, rooted in grace which we so need, to begin to set intentional steps for growth in the new year.
This is the post I wasn’t going to write, in the topic of marriage that I was never going to write about – because I believe my God can redeem.
To the Wife Who Wants to Stay:
I’ve been that wife. When all came crashing down, I promised myself that I would not make any swift decisions, but that I would seek God’s voice above my own heart. I didn’t realize the arena I was about to enter. You see, the world said, “Go, you can leave.” But I was the wife who wanted to stay.
I don’t know your situation and I don’t know your support system, but if you’re trying to do something that goes against the norm, I can bet that there aren’t too many lining up to understand or encourage you. So I wanted to write to you, to the wife who wants to stay.
