Focused on Christ, Fulfilled in Marriage
By: Sandy Ralya
Everywhere I turn these days there are books, sermons, series on marriage. I know that this is not an accident and it's actually my hope and prayer that this means there is a revival of sorts in pursuit of godly marriages. I have no idea if this is true or not, but in my heart I truly hope that it is.
Let's face it, marriage is not easy. It can be one of the most challenging things we ever do in our lives, but it can also be one of the richest, deepest blessings as well. When I heard about Sandy's book (as well as mentor's guide and prayer journal) I knew that I needed to get my hands on it. Not because there is anything wrong with my marriage, but because after being married for almost nineteen years I have found that it is something that still requires me to constantly work at.
Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. I want to be the best wife I can be to my husband, but let's face it, for some of us (myself included) that just doesn't come naturally. Sure, we may do well at it for awhile, but then we fall off the wagon and hit the same bumpy roads that we've been hitting for years.
The Beautiful Wife, by Sandy Ralya, is such a rich resource for all women...whether you have been married two days, two months, two years, twenty years or more. With chapters on self-care, romance, communication, love, money and so much more there is sure to be something for each of us to learn from.
I watched the videos from Sandy (listed at the bottom of this post) and was so glad to see her "voice" is the same as it is in the book...soothing, loving, gentle and kind. Sandy comes alongside women and gently guides them on this journey through marriage. It is her sweet unassuming assistance that allows you to open up and really dig into the heart of the matter.
I'm looking forward to digging into this book, mentor guide and prayer journal more over the next few months. I have already been telling women at my church, as well as my lead Pastor, about this book and can't wait to see what happens when we all grab hold of the fact that we too can be "The Beautiful Wife ~ Focused on Christ, Fulfilled in Marriage".
