And They Lived ‘Deflated’ Ever After

‘Once upon a time’ a girl met a boy and they lived ‘Happily ever after’. These 2 phrases have become very influential in our culture today. They are in books and movies. As little girls we are surrounded by glamorous fairy tales, princess stories, and the illusion of sweet Cinderella marrying her Prince Charming. Cinderella could never deflate and discourage her husband, right? Or Snow White? They are sweet and charming and sing to the birdies. Which is exactly how our marriages are, right? We grow and get married and our marriages begin to look very different from...

Being a Gentle Women

Are you guarding your home?

Here is another (updated) post from my obedient beauty days.   God has given women a powerful job. He has called us to manage our homes.

Satan prowls around like a lion searching.  (1 Peter 5:8) We must be on our guard. If you choose to sin or stay in sin, it leaves the gates open for the lion. If you get angry or bitter and don’t resolve it, if you can’t control lustful or sinful thoughts...

Do you still captivate your husband?

I (Amy) just closed out an old blog I used to co-write 3 years ago. I got to reading some of the posts and remembered how much I learned during that time. I wanted to re-post some of them here. This one is the original post with a couple updates like the number of kids I have.       “A lovely deer, a graceful doe. Let her breasts fill you at all times with delight; be intoxicated  always in her love.”  Proverbs 5:19 I confess, I have fallen in love…with the book of Proverbs. I am reading through it right now and it is so full of great teaching and I want to hide it...
