7 Ways to LOVE Your Husband

Before you start reading this, I just want to let you know that I do not do all these things with blissful glee. I want to, I'm a work in progress with the intention of being a more godly wife, probably much like you.

How to Love Your Husband… Dirty Toilets and All

Written by Jenna, Contributing WriterI remember that day so vividly. It was a day of revelation for me.
