Meet The Contributors


These contributor wives are living their messy, ordinary, yet beautiful lives – just like you. Each wife has a unique experience living as a wife, and it is our hope that through these diverse stories you would find connection, wisdom, hope, and sharpening. The words these wives share come from their hearts, pulled up to their computer – messy bun and all, with coffee and a heart to pour into your marriage. Please love on them as they have loved on you.
