Keeping You in the Loop
Boy, did I need the entire month of January to help me recover from a hard December…
- A trip to the emergency.
- Being sick.
- Trying to pull off Christmas.
- And then my mom’s death.
This girl was just pushed to her limits, and I needed a break from it all.
After attending my mom’s funeral, I couldn’t help but take stock in the life I’m building, in spite of the difficult situations, people, and seasons I face. As I reflected on life, my spirit stirred within me to be more diligent about building a Christ-centered marriage and family, as well as use my additional time to build God’s kingdom. Namely, pouring into you!
Over the past few months, women have reached out to me looking for counsel on their marital situation, or they’d like me to mentor them personally. If you’ve read my blog for awhile, then you know how I absolutely LOVE mentoring women.
In my personal life, I mentor several women in all ages and stages of relationships, and I humbled and honored to be a part of their lives. However, as much as I’d love to spend time one on one with more women, I just can’t. I am so sorry about this. 🙁 BUT, I have created other ways to give you the biblical guidance your heart is desiring.
Below, you’ll find a few ways.
- Read my blog. 🙂
- Follow The Marriage Mentor Podcast (listeners can leave me a question and my husband and I will answer it. But, I will warn you, our turnaround time is not fast. There are so many questions I receive that my husband has suggested we do a daily podcast instead of a weekly one! Well, that ain’t goin’ happen anytime soon because this girl is not superwoman!
- Grab my books for further biblical understanding for your marriage.
- Sign-up for Marriage Mentoring where I share biblical teachings via video, audio, and written messages. You can learn more about this program here. And, you’ll have more access to me within my private community of Christian Wife University.
- And I’ll be launching a new series next week on the blog. (Due to the series starting, my regular weekly podcast will be canceled next week.)
And one last thing. Thanks for giving me your feedback on what topic you wanted me to write about for my new series. I now have my answer, and I’ll share it with you later this week.
Live a poured out life for Christ,
I am very sorry to read about losing your mom, and the rough December you had with health. There are no words to truly console, but I truly hope you’re able to find peace in your heart that your precious mom is in a place more beautiful than we can imagine and with our Heavenly Father. I love what you’re doing and hope to someday grow my blog into something similar as I feel it is my calling. You’re inspiring. XO
Aww, thanks for your sweet and encouraging words!
so sorry for your loss…and difficulties. Love reading your blog
Thanks so much, Erika!
Jolene, I’m so sorry to hear of your difficult December, especially your mom’s passing. My prayers are with you. My wonderful, Godly dad passed away two years ago and it is a very hard loss..miss his voice and wisdom and hugs. May you sense God’s nearness now.
Oh, I’m so sorry for your pain, sweet friend. Hugs!
I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother, your illness, and all of the other difficulties you’ve had. You and your family are in my prayers at this time. Please know that you and your blog have been such a blessing to me.. and I’m a single gal! Keep doing what you’re doing because you’ve touched more lives than you know.
Oh, thank you for your kind words, Talauna! To God be the glory!
I’m so sorry to hear about your mother:;( You are in my thoughts and prayers!!
Thank you, Anna!
Sorry to hear about your mom, on top of everything else. My heart goes out to you.
I’m so sorry for your loss and for the hard time you had with your health and everything else. I am quite inspired by how you have managed to go on in spite of everything you were going through. It is teaching me to continue going on also whether things are hard on me or not. Thank you for mentoring through your actions as well as your words!!
Oh wow, Thabiso, your words ministered to my soul. It’s only because of Jesus!
Hi Jolene, I just “discovered” you while searching for help in my marriage–wanting to know more about becoming the wife God intends me to be. I appreciate all the teachings I’ve listened to and read about so far. Thank you! My heart goes out to you concerning the difficult months you’ve had. I truly understand and know it’s only God’s strength that carries us forward in those things. I hope you feel rested and ready for 2017 and I look forward to more teaching and guidance. May the Holy Spirit speak understanding and wisdom to you as you mentor and teach; in Titus I believe “older” doesn’t necessarily mean in time, but perhaps in spirit. Thank you! I am still learning at 48 and over 20 years a Christian.
