Today is day 5 of Jennifer Smith’s 30 day devotional, Wife After God.

Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole


Last night I lay in bed and I could not sleep.  I was warm and snug and felt safe, so I didn’t want to particularly get out of bed or anything, but as I lay there, I thought of Abigail’s post from yesterday. And I said, in response to her post, how I am so… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Hollow to Whole

Pure Passion :: From Need-to-Control to Letting Go


I am a control freak.  I admit this willingly – don’t they say that the first step to recovery is admitting there is a problem… 🙂 But seriously, I do like things done a specific way and I battle to be open and just to “go with the flow” so to speak. Our fears of… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Need-to-Control to Letting Go

Pure Passion :: From Holding Back to Running Free {#purepassion}


But, I’m starting to hear more loudly the other side of the doubts.  I’m coming alive to the amazing possibilities of the abundant life Jesus promises in John 10:10.  It’s a verse that has often been misconstrued to mean something totally different than what Jesus intended.He meant us to be in Him and His Gospel in… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Holding Back to Running Free {#purepassion}

Pure Passion :: From Duty to Beauty {Sex in Marriage}


Isn’t it sad how sex can become a duty in our lives?  Perhaps for men too, but more for women.  I think this is another attack from Satan – destroy in women what men crave the most.  And what happens?  Marriages suffer. In today’s post, Abigail Alleman, found her beauty again. You see, the whole sex,… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Duty to Beauty {Sex in Marriage}

Pure Passion :: The Questions I Never Asked & The Language I Never Used


Yet, there’s been this duplicity.  Intimate expression towards God flowing freely while a deeply beautiful part of me is bound behind a wall of misplaced shame; unable to speak freely about sex.  The dangers of promiscuous sex, I heard talked about.  How it all can become corrupted.  Important, yes.  But, what about the Beauty of… Continue reading Pure Passion :: The Questions I Never Asked & The Language I Never Used

Pure Passion :: From Overrun to Overcome {Part 2}


Last week, I shared with you this most amazing blog I came across – Abigail Alleman and how Abigail was sharing about moving towards greater intimacy in her marriage.  And, as I suspect that this is an area where most marriages battle, I thought I would share some of Abigail’s down to earth wisdom.   And… Continue reading Pure Passion :: From Overrun to Overcome {Part 2}

A Peaceful Marriage


Have you ever had those days when you just feel like you do everything wrong?  And I mean everything.  There are times when I feel like I just can’t make my husband happy.  No matter what I do, or how I do it, it is wrong.  It hurts me – and what happens is that… Continue reading A Peaceful Marriage

Intimacy in Marriage – and how important it is!


I have felt a bit despondent and very frustrated lately.  And I know the reason – because, besides from being doggone tired, hubby seems to have lost all interest in our intimacy.  And I can only say I blame myself.  And I think that the most frustrating thing for him is that he knows that… Continue reading Intimacy in Marriage – and how important it is!

Does God Make a Difference


In my last post, Crossing the Great Divide, I posted about how God led me to blogs about marriage, when I was looking for blogs on anxiety.  And in all of those blogs, I have realized it is how you think about something – or what you think about a thing that truly counts.  You may not… Continue reading Does God Make a Difference
