As I have been writing this current series on marriage, God has been doing some incredible things in my own marriage!  It has been amazing how, when I stepped out in faith and shared my story, my husband and I have been receiving blessing after blessing.  We have received wonderful encouragement from all of you along with old and new friends.  Thank you!  

Roy and I have been seeking to follow God and to be open to His leading.  We have discovered that when God directs our steps, He also opens doors!  With that said, and with all praise going to God, I am pleased to announce that my husband and I have started a new blog together called:  Water to Wine Marriage It is a place where we will share encouragement, personal insights and tips for marriage filled with God’s abundance.  

We invite you to stop by and check it out!  Water to Wine Marriage  Our prayer is that every couple will experience the rich, bold and full-bodied marriage that God desires for each of us!

In His Grip,
