Here at Women Living Well, we discuss lots of topics. We discuss theology, marriage, parenting, homemaking, homeschooling, my daily life, recipes and other odds and ends. Do you know what the number one topic is that I get the most email questions about?
I believe that the foundation of the family is under attack. Many of us come from broken hearts, broken homes, broken pasts and let’s just face it – even if we come from a solid Christian home – we are sinners and we married a sinner and that makes marriage hard.
The culture has made it difficult to love God, his word and his ways. And so we need each other. We need each other for encouragement, inspiration, accountability, advice, a listening ear, prayer and fellowship.
This is why I am so excited to share something new with you!
I was recently invited by my friends Darlene and Jennifer to join an amazing community through Facebook for wives called Faith-Focused Wives. This is a closer kind of community. Instead of a regular page of encouragement on Facebook, where you may miss some of the posts, this is a private group where women can truly connect in an intimate way.
Darlene, Jennifer, and myself are bloggers who are all passionate about sharing God’s love story and helping wives persevere. Our hope is to pour time into this group and really be available for you to connect with us and others.
I would love for you to get to know the wonderful women I am contributing with in this community – if you don’t know them already!
Darlene Schacht is an Evangelical Christian whose number one priority is to serve Jesus Christ in every area of her life. She started Time-Warp Wife.com in 2010 out of a place of grace, with a passion to encourage women in their marriages. She and her husband Michael live in Manitoba Canada. Married 25 years, they have four children (three still at home), a bird and two pugs who are everyone’s babies, especially hers! Their lives are basically surrounded with three things: faith, music and everything books. She’s an award winning and New York Times best-selling author who is nothing without the grace of God. Her newest book is The Virtuous Wife of a Christ-Centered Life.
Jennifer Smith is a Christian, a wife and a mother of one. Those are her three most important priorities in life, in that order. In March of 2011, she launched, Unveiled Wife. She started the blog to share with other wives the struggles and the healing she encountered in her first few years of marriage. By God’s grace it has grown into much more than she ever imagined, reaching women from all around the world who have joined together in her Facebook community of almost 200,000 women. She believes that if you want a thriving marriage, you must be intentional about it. Jennifer has also authored the popular book called, Wife After God: Drawing Closer to God and Your Husband.
