five: a devotional for wives

so here it goes, day five of the #blogeverydayinFEB challenge from Anchored in Love blog!
if you are a christian and you've been on the internet in the last few months i highly doubt you haven't seen Unveiled Wife floating around. i fell upon their facebook page a few months ago and loved seeing all the posts from wives saying how much God has blessed them through this devotional. after reading several amazing comments and seeing cute pictures of the book with their wedding rings (awwww) i felt compelled to check it out. but to be completely honest, i have a real short attention span when it comes to devotionals.

thoughts to myself as i'm going through the christian section at a bookstore:
"three month devotional? next! six month devotional? yea right! a year devotional? are you out of your ever lovin mind?"
so yea, when i saw that this devotional was only thirty days and written specifically for wives?? (insert angels singing hallelujah) i was ecstatic!
 i ordered it right away and began first thing the day it came in the mail. it is obvious this author has prayed over every word in this devotional because there was not one day i missed, not one prayer that didn't meet my needs; there wasn't one of those thirty days that i did not take something away from it. if you are a wife and love the Lord and want to get closer to both your Savoir and your husband this devotional is for you sister! my favorite thing about this book has to be the designated space for journaling after each devotion. i loved having space to write because usually when i read something like this i'm too lazy to have a separate journal so it was a nice perk for motivation. another thing i enjoyed in this book were the special hash tags and places to follow along in the Unveiled Wife community. they give you plenty of opportunities to connect to other women going through the devotional at the same time you are via blog, facebook or twitter. i completed the devotion a few weeks ago and still go back and read/pray over specific prayers in the devotional that i feel led to still go over. God has worked in me through this book and i know He will do the same for you whether you've been a wife for thirty days or thirty years. now all i have to do is buy one of those cute t-shirts that say "i love my husband"! yes, they even have t-shirts. (you can buy them: here)

also here is a cute video that also inspired me to purchase the devotional. please watch!



p.s have any of you gone through this devotional? any others similar to Unveiled Wife you recommend?
