The Good Wife | Ep. 09

February 13, 2018

Marriage is good for the body and good for the soul. A healthy marriage is a true blessing from God. However, it takes both, a husband and a wife, to have a thriving marriage. This week we are going to look at how 5 ways a wife can contribute to the health and wellbeing of a healthy, thriving marriage. Let's do it for our husbands and our children. 

As wives, we have an amazing opportunity and responsibility to love our husbands well. Let's look at Scripture to find out how we can grow as women of the Word and wives of strong character in order to be who God created us to be for our husbands. 


In this episode you will not find advice on sexual intimacy with your husband. As I prayed about what i should speak on, I felt the Holy Spirit direct me away from sex. However, this would absolutely fall into the topic of “have fun with your husband.”


BUT, what if you’ve done all you can do and you still feel a disconnect with your husband sexually?

God creates us for intimacy. He created us to desire our mates and find satisfaction in one another sexually.
