Welcome to Military Wife After God!
The author behind the blog…
Hello! I’m Elaine.
I have a wonderful husband – his name is Luke. We’ve been married for 5 years now!
We have four gorgeous little boys! Caleb is 4, our twins Micah and Jacob are 2, and Benjamin was just born this past August (2016).
Luke has been in the military for going on 7 years now. He was active duty Air Force for 6 years and is now Air National Guard and currently on his third tour. He has yet to meet our newest little one! (That homecoming will DEFINITELY be on the blog!)
I began this blog after reading the Wife After God: Drawing Closer to God & Your Husband devotional (affiliate link-see disclosure) by the Unveiled Wife. That devotional completely changed my life! It taught me how to begin a relationship with God and how to put God at the center of my marriage. The impact this devotional made on my life has been so HUGE that I felt an instant calling to share it with every wife out there (military or not)!
Marriage is marriage no matter who is involved so I invite EVERY wife out there to stay a while so we can all learn from each other how great God’s idea of marriage is! 🙂
This page is also a way for me to reach out to other military wives and encourage them to pursue God in their lives and their marriages so deployments, TDYs, short tours, etc. aren’t as upsetting as they tend to be. I want other military wives to know that through God military marriages can still grow, thrive, and you can still learn about each other even while separated.
I thank God He grabbed my attention through this devotional because I am learning more and more how incredibly important it is not only to have Him in my life but also to KNOW Him! Having a relationship with Him is the absolute best thing for me, for my marriage, and for my family.
I hope to encourage other women who visit this page to find hope for their marriages and lives and become a wife after God as well!
My faith is extremely important to me! I love God, Luke, our four little boys, and my friends and family more than anything and I am so excited to share my journey in growing closer to our Heavenly Father.
I would like to invite you to join me in taking steps to “saturate your life with Scripture”! I came up with this idea as a way to make sure I am constantly reminded of God’s word (because I need it!). I struggle daily as a godly wife and as a mother and want to follow God in everything. So I created printables of Scripture to frame and hang all over my house so that no matter what situation I am in, I will be able to look up and be reminded of what God expects of me as a daughter of the Most High.
I want to invite you to do the same and am offering access to these printables to you as well! For FREE! Print them out and hang them all over your home to be reminded of God and His will for you.
And because I had such a difficult time choosing which verses to create printables out of (since there are SO many encouraging and hopeful verses in the Bible!), I will be adding at least one printable each week for you! 🙂
I’m so glad you’ve stopped by and I hope you decide to stay awhile! 🙂
