My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars


The Beautiful Wife uses these inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God’s best in her marriage. The Beautiful Wife answers serious questions women have about their roles as wives. Discussing everything from romance and money to beauty, communication, and sex, Sandy challenges women to open up and share their journeys so that together they can see God’s plan for their marriages. “It is my passion to help women discover God’s heart for their marriage, just as the other women helped me,” writes Sandy. “When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives, it’s a beautiful thing indeed.” The Beautiful Wife has two companion resources – Prayer Journal and Mentor’s Guide.

My Husband ROCKS the CrockPot

I love it when my husband gets these ideas – like decided to cook on Sundays. I love that. I like it even better when he pulls out the crockpot and loads it up with goodies and we get to taste scrumptious meat and veggies that he prepares early in the mornings. My husband ROCKS the crockpot!

About a month ago, he announced that he would start cooking on Sundays to help me out. I am still rather sleep deprived these days and he has been stepping in to help out so I can breathe. Like the other morning when he let me stay in bed while he got up with our girls and tried to keep them occupied so I could sleep in. What a blessing THAT was! Thankfully, Little Man cooperated and slept too!

Cuppa Love…

coffeerosepetals Do you have plans for Valentines Day? Do you ever make plans? Does your hubby (or wife) do the planning? Is it that big of deal to you?

With the snow we’ve had this week and reshuffling of appointments and schedules every day – I haven’t really thought about Valentines Day a whole lot. Believe it or not, I don’t want chocolate.

What I really want is TIME with Roy.

It shouldn’t take a commercialized holiday to think about it – and it doesn’t – it just provides a reasonable excuse for having an hour or two (or more) for JUST the TWO of US.

Happy Birthday, Mr. President

The year Roy & I got married, I was flying to see him on December 4th, which is his birthday. I was at the KC Airport and called him on my cell phone and sang “Happy Birthday” to him that soft, breathless way Marilyn Monroe might have. He laughed. A lot. But he seemed to appreciate it.

I did a very short repeat performance today as we were driving around together – and he laughed. I like to be able to make him laugh… Continue reading

Sweetest Day

So I’m late posting this – but I’m getting there!

Roy had an appointment last Saturday morning so I was home with the girls. We were going to run errands when he got home, so I wasn’t paying attention when he knocked on the door cuz I was in the middle of washing dishes.

Finally, after he’d been here for several minutes saying hello to the girls, I turned and looked, and he had a GORGEOUS vase of Fall flowers for me for Sweetest Day. What a LOVELY surprise!!! And after almost a week, only 2 roses have faded!!!
