Couples of the Bible-Adam and Eve Part 1

I am very excited to share a bible study I have developed and will be doing for the next several Mondays with you. I am going to study iconic and lesser known couples of the bible, what they went through, how God was involved in their lives, their faith (or in many occasions lack there of), their culture, and what God was trying to accomplish with this couple.

For our first couple, I battled with studying Adam and Eve because they are so well known. But then after talking to my grandma (my bible guru), I thought, they were the FIRST couple. The first married couple that God ever much more important could you get than that?  I am going to break this particular couple into two focusing on the perfect marriage and the second part focusing on disobeying God. If you would like to follow in your bible, I will be studying Genesis Chapter 2:1-25.

In Genesis Chapter 2, after God created the Earth, he noticed it needed to be taken care of. So he created man-Adam. He wa…

Book review: The Good Wife's Guide

I read about Darlene Schacht when I read Candace Cameron Bure's book, Reshaping it all. I have to say first before I get into this book...I love Candace Cameron Bure. I have looked up to her since I watched her on Full House, and she is still a role model to me, even more so as a Christian wife. (I plan to post a review of her book Balancing it All on here even though I read the book last year. It was that good).
So back to Darlene Schacht. This was a great book. I love her principles. Her goal is for us as wives and mothers to embrace our roles as our husband's help meets. She is a firm believer of the Bible's teaching in Ephesians 5.

It is such a lost belief, but when we follow the Bible's teachings and understand that our husbands are to be the head of the house and we are to support them, we have a lot happier marriages. She understands there are a lot of people who think of her as old fashioned, but she is ok with that.

Not another New Year's Resolution post...

It's the first week of January and tons of articles, blogs, and tips are being released on organization, goal setting, losing weight, etc. I have to admit...I am a goal setter. For the past several years, I have spent time before Jan 1st to write down goals I want to achieve for the year. I am an annoyingly organized person, but I love the feeling of accomplishment. So what does this have to do with marriage or how does it help? Well, I know that K thrives on organization and structure as much as I do. Keeping our home life organized and structured helps our relationship succeed. I know how much K appreciates a clean house, cooked meals, etc so I strive to meet that. I make to do lists and work really hard to cross everything off. So that brings me back to goal setting. I set goals for myself so I can become an even better wife and person.  Being able to not only set the goals for yourself but actually achieve them, makes you feel like you have purpose and it makes you feel good.…
