Worship from the Start

by admin on April 23, 2015 in Ceremony Traditions, Music with 4 Comments

Many brides choose to have hymns sung as they walk down the aisle. It’s a beautiful way to tie into the history of sacred tradition as many saints have done before them. Whether a cappella or accompanied, the opening song becomes the intro to the story of the bride and groom’s marriage. At a recent…continued here

When TV Takes First Place

by admin on March 4, 2015 in Relationship with No Comments

What do you do when your spouse has a TV habit that makes you feel invisible and undervalued?  This common dynamic can subtly divide a marriage team and can derail a marriage from its God-given purposes.  But TV is not the enemy.  At the heart of the conflict are hurts such as feeling alone, unheard,…continued here

TV, The Third Wheel

by admin on September 6, 2014 in Relationship with No Comments

TV is an amazing gift to be sure, but so many couples, my husband and I included, let it take a place in the marriage that limits and dulls the connection between husband and wife, as well as between each person and God.  How can a husband and wife create healthy boundaries in their TV…continued here

Guest Blog by Wendie Aston: “Green” Centerpieces (with a Purpose)

by admin on July 16, 2013 in Budget, Flowers, Purpose, Reception Traditions with 2 Comments

One of the most expressive elements of a wedding reception is the table centerpiece. Often centerpieces are comprised of flowers that paint a 3D picture of the personality of the bride and groom. The common use of organic elements in centerpieces make them a natural fit for adding a touch of “green” to your wedding, which could mean having re-useable centerpieces, natural elements, or multi-purposed arrangements that save money and leave less impact on the environment.

Thought for the Week: Psalm 81:1

by admin on July 14, 2013 in Communication, Relationship, Thought for the Week with 1 Comment

Lord of lords, I delight in You! You are my first love, and I want everyone to know about You. Give me courage to be free in expressing my love for You. Give me a language of praise that is unique to our relationship. Be ever glorified in my songs, my shouts, my words, and my deeds. And as I learn to love my husband more and more, let that relationship always be a reflection of my relationship with You and not the other way around. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Photo Booth Save the Date

by admin on July 11, 2013 in Budget, Invitations with 1 Comment

Sending Save the Dates was a no-brainer for Chris and me because our wedding was in Southern California, but my college friends were from around Connecticut, his high school friends were from Northern California, his family was from South Carolina and Georgia, and his family friends (who were like his family since his parents were missionaries abroad) were from across the world. If we wanted all our guests to come, we had to give them ample time to look for travel deals and save up money.

We did not want to spend a lot on our Save the Date since there would be an invitation to follow, but we also didn’t want to waste the time, effort, and money on sending something not worth receiving. According to us, that would have been something sloppy, something tacky, or even something that was quality but was outside of our personalities.

Modesty as a Marriage Tool

by admin on July 9, 2013 in Attire, Purity, Relationship with 3 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.

Thought for the Week: Esther 8:1-2

by admin on July 7, 2013 in Faith, Thought for the Week with No Comments

Holy God, You are all-powerful. With You, I have nothing to fear. You are my conqueror and redeemer. You know the cries of my heart and the injustice around me. Overwhelm my heart and circumstances with Your justice so that I may rest in You despite the fear and turmoil in my heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
