Marriage is hard. You love this man and you vowed to spend your life with him- at least you did once upon a time. Today, well, today you are in the middle of marriage being hard and so much more than you had imagined it would be. Everyone hits rough spots occasionally; but, you seem to be in a perpetual hard time. Not only that- you have kids and a home to take care of on top it!
There are so many of us who think we’re the only one in this position and it just isn’t true. Growing in grace, growing through marriage, motherhood, and life all can happen even in the midst of marital turmoil; but, it will take effort and dedication…
A Wife Holding On…
I’m Rebecca, and while I’m far from perfect, I am daily learning and growing. I grew up a “christian” kid in that I went to church with my family Sunday, served in church, participated in youth group- and lived however I wanted the rest of the week. That lead to a young pregnancy, a first marriage I jumped ship on when I felt it just got too hard, a quick jump into a new relationship and marriage, and realizing fairly quickly that there is no perfect union of two sinners. Marriage is hard and it always will be- but I’m still holding on and I pray you will too. Matthew 19:6 has been a lifeline here for me to hold on tight to God- and an exercise of trusting Him.
I am now a Christian wife and mother, homeschooling my three children, and feeling infinitely grateful for God’s grace. Our marriage is no fairy tale- it is a testament to God’s redeeming power, a sanctifying relationship, and a continually evolving union. Times of hardship aren’t over, but we’re further than we once were, and we’re trusting God to shepherd us on.
I started Wife Holding On because I have a passion to see marriages succeed and to help women in the hard parts- the parts the world tells us are worth throwing in the towel over.
Wife Holding On is here to offer encouragement:
- As you seek to hold onto the vows you made when it seems your husband has forgotten his.
- As you are trying to be the Proverbs 31 woman and feel like this marriage is making that impossible.
- As you are striving to be there for your kids throughout it all- while wanting to fall apart yourself.
- As you know you need to do something to grow but feel stuck.
Every marriage is a unique union and has it’s own challenges and difficulties; but, I will strive to offer help and hope, look at life, marriage, and motherhood biblically, and stay holding on to God.
