Modesty as a Marriage Tool

by admin on July 9, 2013 in Attire, Purity, Relationship with 2 Comments

I think it’s beautiful and even a little sultry for my husband to be the only one who gets to know what I look like in something slinky, wild, or sexy. As far as I’m concerned, no one else needs to be thinking about me in that way, so I shouldn’t give them opportunity to.

Even more compelling to me than protecting that spark for my husband (because I think every guy wishes his gal were hot eye candy to some degree. You know, a “That’s right, fellas…I don’t know what she’s doing with me either, but I’ve got a hottie” kind of thing) is protecting the sanctity in the marriages around me.

Marriage from Prayer, Letter 3

by admin on June 11, 2013 in Faith, Purity, Relationship with No Comments

One of my favorite things about you is that you put Christ before everything.  You pray for me and I hear the words my heart longs to receive.  Your voice is the instrument of our Lord.  Such sweet breath.  Such lovely words.  I am amazed that you, being so sweet and lovely, have chosen me to be your husband.  How grateful I am.  How wonderful you are.  How beautiful.  How excellent.

Praying Together

by admin on May 21, 2013 in Faith, Purity, Relationship with No Comments

Coming before the throne of grace together as a married couple will bring such blessing into your marriage. When both people are individually confessing their sins and soaking up the awe of God’s presence, both people will begin to conform to the image of Christ. And when both people in a marriage do that together, there is an un-replicated unity of authentic selves.

Marriage from Prayer, Letter 1

by admin on March 21, 2013 in Faith, Purity, Relationship with No Comments

I wanted to read the words and pulled the jacket out of the CD. She had the Lyrics (Beautiful), A Bible Verse (1 Timothy 4:12), and a sentence saying that she wrote the song based on letters she had written to her future husband. I write them now to my future wife, which is weird because as you read you are my wife.

Let’s Talk about Sex

by admin on January 24, 2013 in Purity with No Comments

If this post applies to you and your fiancé, prayerfully commit right now to waiting to have sex again until you are in the holy bounds of marriage. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it because you will be sacrificing in obedience for the sake of your loving Lord Jesus who truly knows the greatest good for you and your marriage.

Regardless of where you are on the spectrum of sexual sin, you will enter into marriage with some sort of brokenness—sexual or other—that will find its way into the bedroom.

But here is the good news: You are made whole.

Stickers Reward Chart

Most couples will have sex far less than they would hope because of all the hurdles they have to jump to protect that time.  But they want to have sex more, and they need to.  Planning ahead can definitely make a difference, but so can a reward system.

Purity Ring at Your Wedding?

by admin on May 15, 2012 in Ceremony Traditions, Purity, Rings, Vows with 1 Comment

Some women have been celebrated in their teens with a purity ring.  Their fathers or their churches have elevated the status of marriage, of sexuality, and of womanhood and have offered these women a choice to uphold the sanctity of those even then as they were just teenagers.  If the women accepted this purity covenant,…continued here
