A New Adventure

The Lord continues to amaze me and humble me before His throne of grace and mercy. I'm so excited to share with you a new adventure I'm on with my Jesus. A month or so ago I joined an incredible team of ladies who are using their gifts and talents to honor the Lord through an online Christian magazine. I was reluctant at first to fill the position that was presented to me- a marriage columnist. Who? Me? Write about marriage?

I prayed about it for a few days and knew without a doubt that this was exactly what God would have me do. Years ago, God did a miraculous work in my marriage. Mine was a marriage that was standing on the doormat of divorce knocking for someone to open the door. It was inevitable- the end was near. But, God had other plans; much better plans.

After my husband and I experienced God's healing hand on our lives and in our marriage, we both promised Him that we would tell our story any chance we were given and would spend the rest of our days helping those whose marriages were in trouble. So, there was no other answer I could give to Kristen (the editor of Exemplify) but "Yes!'. I excepted the offer and immediately began thinking about what I would write for my first article. Again, God clearly spoke to my heart and told me to share my marriage story. So, that is what I have done.

Today, I invite you to read the May 2009 issue of Exemplify. This is a wonderful magazine written my a number of different women who are passionate about Jesus. I know your heart will be blessed and challenged as you read through the pages of this magazine. Also, make sure to take some time to look at all Exemplify has to offer.

Jenifer, your article was WONDERFUL! How did I miss that you were in NC before? Or maybe I knew that fact once, but forgot. I wonder if you are near me? Have we discussed this before?

I laughed when you said that you fell in lust. I have said that about me and my husband too. It has taken almost 20 years to begin to have a friendship! Isn't that something? Well, that is 20 years of marriage. It has been 22 years of being together.
