Dear Wife: Why Your Husband Really Needs You

Dear Wife,

In a practical sense, you and your husband are a team. Yes, he needs your help around the house, just as you need his. Yes, he needs your help with the kids. And I’m sure there have been plenty of moments when you’ve silently wondered, “What on earth would you do without me?” But, sweet friends, sometimes you may forget that he needs you for a whole lot more than house chores and motherly intuition.

A few weeks ago, I had a friend ask me: “Why do I always feel so disappointed?”

She was let down. Again.

My heart ached for her in that moment. I have faced many of my own situations like this. Situations in which I have felt anxiety and bitterness rising up in my heart after facing disappointment.

To the Girl Who Wished She Hadn’t

One morning in college, I woke up, got ready and drove to a church to buy myself a purity ring. My heart ached a little bit at the thought of it, because even at that time, the last word that I would have used to define myself was “pure.”

Why Are You So Hard On Yourself?

What is your standard of perfection?
And who designed that for you?

Fluffy, Tasty & Homemade: Valentine’s Day Waffles

I wanted to share this guest post with you all because it is so much fun! As soon as Destiny shared this Valentine’s Day Waffle recipe with me, I had to try them. I’ve never been much of a breakfast person, but Jesse and Sutton are literally breakfast addicts, and they especially love sweets in the morning. This was the perfect meal to make for them and, let me tell you, they are as delicious and fluffy as they look! We cut ours out with heart-shaped cookie cutters and they were so cute! I hope you enjoy these sweet, homemade waffles as much as we did!
