When You Are Insecure with Your Outer Appearance

Are you insecure with your outer appearance?  Do you wish certain body parts were different?  More times than I care to admit, I’ve felt the same way. I wish I had a longer torso and a smaller waist, but that is not how God made me.  I’m all legs and while some may like this, I don’t.  My figure is disproportionate and it makes it difficult when buying clothes and feeling attractive in them.  But this is something I’ve had to learn to live with, however, not all insecurities can stem from how we are made.  Some disfigurement can come from a result of an accident or illness.  This is what one wife is struggling with in her life and she was wondering what she could do about it.

Whether you have an illness that has caused your body to change or whether you’re not satisfied in your own skin, take a listen to today’s podcast and find out what’s a girl to do?

How a Wife Can Confront Her Husband’s Sin and Idols

Sins.  We all have them.  And then you have idols.  Things we bow down to.  Things that rule our lives.  Things that consume us.  If these things go unchecked, they can quickly destroy our lives and marriages.  Confronting and rebuking a husband is never easy no matter what the situation is, but sometimes it’s necessary and it’s biblical! But how do you go about it in a God-honoring way?

How to Connect with Your Husband through His Love Language (Podcast #52)

Have you ever been at a place in your marriage where you’re just not connecting with your husband?  Either he’s not feeling loved by you or you’re not feeling loved by him?  It’s funny just typing out this question because I already know your answer.  It’s the same as mine.  In fact, it’s kinda absurd that I even posed the question because every couple has felt this before.  This is what one wife is struggling with in her marriage.  Here’s her story…

Dear Jolene,

My husband of 2 years is claiming that my love for him is not real. He says it feels like I’m pretending to love him and he’s not happy. I do love him and is very much so in love with him. At moments when all I want to do is cuddle up next to him and for him to hold me, all I can think about is what he’s thinking. He says he is unhappy and is not ready to divorce yet, but I have suggested counseling and he declines.

So, What’s a Girl to Do?

Scripture reference:

Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God.  1 John 4:7

How to Get on the Same Page as a Couple (Podcast #51)

Off kilter.  Leading separate lives.  No vision for your family life.  All of these issues can cause you and your husband to disconnect.  This is what one wife is dealing with in her marriage.  Here’s her story…

Dear Jolene,

How do my husband and I get on the same page? We seem to disconnect at times and it causes a drift between us.
