Marriage is the rock that holds the family together. My marriage and family have definitely been a testimony to this! I decided to start blogging to share my family’s amazing stories of God’s mercy and grace in our life – every single day.
Marriage is good for people. Marriage is good for children. Marriage is the start of a brand new family. I want families to be happy. I want families to succeed. I want children to grow up in happy homes. I want families to love each other – with all their heart, soul, and might! With God and a strong family that sticks together, you can overcome anything!
Marriage is an amazing thing, if you put God at the front of it all. He is the creator of marriage and he has the best plan for it! Even if your parents weren’t successful at marriage, it is no indication of your success in marriage. My life is a LIVING TESTIMONY to this!!
I want to let girls and boys know that if your parents are divorced, that God loves you, and hears your prayers! I was not taught that marriage was something to look forward to because of what I saw my parents go through. When I was 7 years old my parents divorced after years of my mother’s absence. My dad remarried the next year and I realized that my parents were not ever getting back together. So, I started praying for something even better.
I prayed to God that He would give me a man to marry who would love me no matter what, a man that would love me despite all my faults, a man that would encourage me to grow and be a better person, a man that I could encourage and help to be a better person, a man that I could give my babies to, and a man that I could raise children with that would show the world that with God ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE! But, most importantly I prayed for God to give me a family that would love me no matter what! My children will know what a strong marriage looks like by the example I’ve been blessed to give to them. God has a plan for your life – an amazing plan! Sometimes you are given no other choice but to trust God and let go.
What do you think of this idea? How do you think we can help strengthen marriages and families?
God bless you all,
