Her Husband’s Helper


Genesis 2:18 Then the Lord God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.”

Sometimes this verse speaks to me in different ways, depending on what I’m going through at the time. However, I always feel amazed at the fact that God saw an emptiness in man’s life and designed us to fill that space. We were made to be helpers, which is straight from God’s mouth.

It can definitely swallow us up.  Stress and worry sap your energy and happiness.

Introduction – Hello, Ladies!


Women are incredible creatures – there’s no doubt about that! We are constantly working to keep our homes, families, and even workplaces in order.

I decided to start this blog because I know firsthand how women undervalue themselves and how we struggle balancing being a Christian woman, a wife, a mother, an employee, a friend, a neighbor, a sister, a daughter, and many more roles!

It’s time we cut ourselves some slack and prioritize our time with God. I hope and pray that this blog will help you to create balance in your life, lift your spirits, give you hope, and grow your relationship with our Lord.

God Bless You and Yours,

Stephanie
