For the past two weeks, I have been writing on a subject that is very near and dear to my heart. Those of you who know me know that I am passionate about marriage and believe that with God, our marriages can do more than simply survive, they can thrive! 

So, for the next few weeks, please join me as I continue this series and explore the different aspects of keeping our relationships healthy, fun and fresh.  There are a lot of exciting things in the works and I am looking forward to sharing with you.

Below is a listing of the articles I have already posted.  I encourage you, if you have not read them already, to check them out.  I pray that by sharing my life-lessons learned other women will find hope and be encouraged in their own marriages.  

The sixth post in this series on marriage will be up later this week!  See you then!

In His grip,
