    The I AM For Your Every Need
    Sooner or later, everyone will be beaten up, battered, bruised, and burned out by the dailies of life. Good news! God is the Lord of all of your life. List every need and emotion that you are feeling, no matter how small they seem. After you have acknowledged all your emotions and needs, go through the names of God until you find the expression of His character that meets each need. For every need, there is a corresponding attribute of God. Affirm that God is still God, no matter how you feel. Have a praise party, not a pity party, for your loving Father is a big God. He is able to do much more than you need or can think or ask.

I am NOT crazy!

Hope for Wives podcast has taught me to give myself grace as I navigate through the betrayal process and search for ways to heal. It truly is a podcast full of hope. These three ladies are so real and honest and they give it to you straight and I absolutely love them so much even though we have never met. There are days I feel like I am going crazy but on those days I know to listen to an episode of Hope for Wives to bring me back.

To all three of you- thank you for your service to your fellow sisters in recovery. Hugs!
