When You Know Your Value in Jesus, You Know A Better Marriage

When a wife comes face to face with a valley in her marriage, the ways of the world will often press down on her, and her self-worth can take a hit.

She was crushed. Wasn’t she pretty enough? Was it the new gray hairs? The baby weight? Or the tired lines on her face from all the late nights nursing? Was she not enough anymore?

Determined to fix things between them, she focused harder on her outside, yet the divide between them still grew.
