Marriage is a Grace Factory
Would you describe your marriage as a place of grace or a battleground? Far too many believers are struggling in a marriage where they are functioning more like enemies in battle than lovers. Today, LeRoy and I are sharing again with Bob Lepine and Dennis Rainey at Family Life Today and I hope you’ll listen as we talk about what God wants to do in marriages and the role that grace plays in that.
When two come together to unite their lives in marriage, both people bring into that sacred relationship loads of baggage and sinful habits they may have been carrying for decades. Marriage gives the opportunity for us to be squeezed as never before . . . and in that squeezing, we often express ourselves sinfully. But marriage is a grace factory. Every time we’re squeezed, we have the opportunity to cry out and receive God’s grace for help.
Today, on the program, we describe ways to build a new relationship through God’s work of grace that He desires to bring to your marriage. We hope you’ll click over and listen to the program, but also share it with others who may need hope and need to know the grace that God has for their marriage!read more
Welcome! I’m glad you’re spending a few moments with me here. It is astounding to think that in this small corner of the blogger world, women from across the globe can experience the adventure of growing together in Christ. I never planned to grow up and be a blogger but writing blogs allows me to disciple more women than I would ever have opportunity to actually meet.
My reason for writing is that I have to. This driving impulse to communicate God’s reality and goodness to others is like a burning fire. Because of who He is, the desire for others to know and love Him consumes me. He is my passion and I don’t want to waste a single day, but cram each moment full of living all out for His glory. I long for the day when all will know that He alone is God.

Kim has written several devotionals and resource materials for women and loves encouraging women to become students of the Word.
A dream was realized when I attended the first True Woman Conference in 2008. I’ll never forget looking around at thousands of women, freely worshipping God together, embracing their calling as women, and thinking, He’s doing it, He is birthing this movement!
In the late 1990s my friend, Nancy Leigh DeMoss, gave me two books that made a significant impact on my life. True Woman by Susan Hunt and The Feminist Gospel (later revised and entitled The Feminist Mistake) by Mary Kassian. My eyes were opened to how the feminist philosophy has permeated our culture and what a loss we’ve experienced as a result.Read more
