Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

The Cat is Out of the Bag!

Well a few weeks ago I started this blog, I prayed and prayed!! I got cold feet several times but I did it.  Today a reader followed me from Kelly's Korner .  So first I want to thank the reader for the sweet comment.  I also want to write about why she linked to me.  I posted that I was praying for my husband's salvation.  That is huge, it's huge to write about and it's huge to talk about.  I have such a burden for families. 
God hates divorce.  ( This is not judgement, I know that there are some reasons that it's the only option) When things started to get "rough" in my home I was so surprised at the response from many people, christians included!! I had people to tell me that I could do better, there more fish in the sea, I deserve a "REAL" man and etc.  I had very few people tell me that they would stand in the gap  and pray with me for my marriage.  I didn't have people to encourage me to pray for God's will.  I was hurting and desperately seeking answers for how I as a christian woman should respond to my husband.  I in my heart wanted to do things to draw him to Christ but my actions did otherwise.  I did everything from guilt-tripping him to using our children to encourage him to go.  Well, needless to say it didn't draw him to Christ.  It did push him away from God, church and church going people.  Over time I changed my approach.  I stopped focusing so much on him and started to work on me.  I wanted to become the kind of wife God wanted me to be.  This is and has been a journey and I will write about it.  I want to pray for and with anyone that is praying for their marriage.  I want to pray for marriages that are going well, ones that need help, and ones that seem like they're over.  God has the final say so when it comes to these things.  He can heal, He can bring peace, He can restore, He can bring joy, He can give us better than what we had before, He can!!!!
