Ephesians 5 Man

IMG_3790From the time we were little girls, most of us have dreamt of our wedding day. It all starts when we play with our Barbie and Ken dolls and continues on when we have our first crush. In a world where romance and weddings are amplified by Pinterest dream wedding boards and fairytale romance shows like The Bachelorette where men fight for a woman’s heart and woo her with extravagant vacations, gifts, and in the end a huge engagement ring. {Provided for free by a jeweler in exchange for some national advertising,} We girls sort of have a ‘fill-in-the-groom’ mentality of our wedding day. We think about how we will do our hair and what type of dress we will wear, we wonder what colors will be the ‘wedding colors’ and almost every detail in between.

Promises

Promise: a declaration that one will or will not do something; a vow.

People now days seem to take promises so lightly. We make and break promises as if it is no big deal. Or we just ignore the true meaning of the promises that we do make.

One of the greatest promises you can make in life is promising yourself to your husband (or wife). In this excerpt from “Being a Godly Wife: it starts with you,”Kaitlyn gives a wonderful definition of what marriage is.

Marriage is a covenant between you, your significant other, and God. Marriage is becoming one half of a whole in God’s eyes. Marriage is rejoicing with God and your husband in the happy times and choosing to stick with God’s word and your husband in the not-so-happy times. Marriage is a covenant (commitment) not a “just for now” situation.

This makes me think of the vows that my husband and I made to one another only a few months ago. Read more…

If you are a bride/groom-to-be or even simply about to meet the family of your significant other you may be a little nervous. Meeting the family for the first time can be completely nerve wracking. You want to make a good impression and be accepted as a new part of the family, but you can only hope and pray that you share the same values and beliefs.

Here are a few tips I have learned from my own experiences which could possibly help you when meeting the [future] in-laws for the first time
(or even help to improve any relationships that have already begun):

Relationships 1,2,3…

Relationships can be a sticky topic for many people, especially when we refer to which relationship should be put first, second and third (and so on). Respect and honor should be applied to every single one of our relationships, but there is also a line as to what relationship should be respected and honored above the others.

Ask.Believe.Receive (a testimony)

As the day of my wedding draws closer and closer I have had to constantly remind myself to trust that God is there to help me deal with all of the stresses and frustrations. And I have to also remind myself to put all my worries and concerns in his hands. I know I can trust him fully because he delivers!!!!
