Marriage is an amazing blessing that comes with surprising challenges. I have had many hard seasons that sent me to Google searching for Christian Marriage “Resources”.
How about You?
I hear from women every week who are struggling in their Christian Marriage – searching for resources that will offer practical help. That is where I was several years ago (still am some days).
One thing is the same in every conversation!
They feel like they are the only Christian struggling with their Marriage. Can you relate?
Most of us are in a church, but still feel alone with our Marriage struggles. What if we all stood up and took off the mask? You know the “I’m fine”, “We’re fine” masks.
Christian Marriage Resource #1
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a group of women you could talk to about the Real things in your Wifehood?
- A place where you don’t have to pretend.
- Where you can be real and find encouragement to equip you to press on in this journey.
Me Too! That is exactly why I started a Closed Facebook group.
Christian Marriage Resource #2
Even with tips and a community, we still need to dig deeper – into specific topics at times written by wives with experience. Check those out on the Biblical Wifehood Page.
More Christian Marriage Resources
I love writing to equip wives but, I know there are time and seasons when we need to dig deeper. I try to do that for free, but when I can’t I am sure to find things that bring value.
These are the Christian Marriage Resources I’ve found that are:
- Easy to go follow
- Simple to apply
All the things I look for in life 😉 !!!!!!! #FrugalWife
Christian Marriage Resources for Prayer
Prayer is really the first step to change anything in the life of a Disciple of Christ. It is the way God softened my heart and then my husbands heart to bring about real change.
The 1st 2 completely changed my life – and marriage!
It feels so passive… especially when you are in a hard season and just want to DO SOMETHING! But it is best to be still and know that He is God… and let Him work inside – to effect outward change in His way and in His Time.
Are you are ready to take your prayer life to the next level? I highly recommend The Battle Plan for Prayer! This little book is jam packed with practical ways to “Pray without ceasing”! It taught me how to pray scripture and how to pray offensively! Love it!
Prayer Journaling is another amazing help!
Prayer Journaling. It helps me stay focused. After some time has passed, you can then go back and see ways God has answered! The Character Corner created Praying Scripture for your Husband Prayer Journals. Includes a Prayer for each day from scripture, additional scriptures to reflect on, journal sheets to write your own personal prayers
If you are short on time and need prayer to be easy and convenience. Mums Kids Jesus created a 7 Day Jump start for Praying for your Husband. You sign up for free on her site and she sends prayer to your email for 7 days. Easy Peasy!
If you are in a season where you can pray together, the Unveiled Wife has created a companion prayer study for Husband and Wife to do together.
It is really amazing the way praying together connects your hearts!
31 Prayers for my Husband is the wife’s book.
31 Prayers for my Wife is the husbands book.
And honestly, men are wired so differently. Don’t be discouraged if he doesn’t finish (Let that be between him and God.
This is amazing even if you end up doing it by yourself 😉
Christian Marriage Resources for study
The Holy Mess created the Trust in the Lord Bible Journaling Kit. This is A 30 day Bible reading plan (on the theme of Trusting in the Lord). It includes Quotes & doodles to trace or copy in your Bible, Bible Verse Cards & Traceable Margin strips
Natalia Drumm – created a great couples devotional called Pillow Talk Devotional . The study walks through the book of James in 5 weeks. It has short daily readings of Scripture and devotional sections. Then there are pillow talk questions to do with your spouse and space to journal, ask questions or write out Scripture.
It covers topics: identity in Christ, freedom as a woman of God, the importance of prayer in marriage, living a joy-filled life, the fashionable wife (we can all wear the eternal wardrobe) & becoming a valiant wife
Christian Marriage Resources -Great Books
The first 3 have been amazing in my marriage!
Hope for the Hurting Wife is an e-book with 30 Days of Encouragement for Marriage
Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs by Emerson Eggerichs
This book is an amazing resource for couples who are struggling to find a real understanding of the opposite sex. I learned so much about what Respect really means to my husband – It is different than the way I understand it!
There are also times when we have to live with the consequences of very bad choices. Not always our choices. This book – When Godly People do Ungodly Things helped me process some of the worst abuse and betrayal in my past. Dealing with the past is critical for being Emotionally Healthy now.
These books are great resources as well!
Face to Face Mentoring – is a wonderful book packed with practical tools to begin investing in the lives around you!
Whether you have a mentor, can’t seem to find one, or haven’t even thought to look. Jayme Hull walks you through every aspect of this critical relationship.
The Sacred Romance by Henry Cloud
This book is great for those of us who are “enablers” or who just have a weak “No”. Learn when to say yes and when to say no–to your spouse and to others–to make the most of your marriage. Only when a husband and wife know and respect each other’s needs, choices, and freedom can they give themselves freely and lovingly to one another.
Submission is such a difficult subject. We as wives need a real Biblical understanding of it. This little book offers just that!
If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy
That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. This is a fun little book that adds humor to truth!
I pray these Resources bless your home and Marriage!
