My heart is heavy today for the many wives who feel stuck in a difficult marriage. For the last couple of months, the top google search word that led people to this site has been the word “unloved.” How unfortunate that during the month of February, when we highlight and celebrate love, so many of us feel it is lacking!
Maybe you, too, are searching for hope for your marriage?
As a wife myself, I spent many years fearing the reality of divorce. In fact, it’s only been the last few years that I’ve begun to find confidence in our marriage. So I feel qualified to tell you that you can still find hope for your marriage!
No marriage is too messy, no life too destroyed, for our Father God to work a transformation that leads to new life.
The real question is, how badly do you want it?
Are you willing to fight for hope?
Are you willing to cling to truth?
Are you willing to spend time praying for and loving someone who may not act loving toward you in return?
Perhaps even daring to hope sounds too painful to you at the moment – I’ve been there before, too, friend.
Yet our Father redeemed those broken places for me, and He desperately wants to do the same for you.
My friend Rebekah Hallberg and I have spent the last year writing about marriage and family life for each other’s blogs, attempting to share our stories that they might encourage women from all walks of life who really want to stay married but are weary of the struggle, women who have nearly lost hope.
We’ve been working for the last month or so to bring you a gift, a marriage resource that will hep you find renewed hope for your marriage. What we ended up with exceeded even our own expectations!
The best part is that for a short time, we are offering this gift to you at no cost – absolutely free (please read update below – this offer has expired)! We firmly believe that God wants to use these words to encourage wives across the globe to persevere when it comes to having a marriage that lasts.
*UPDATE* Due to the enthusiastic response from you, our cherished readers, we have temporarily pulled Hope for the Hurting Wife because we’ve decided to add to it! My friend and co-author Rebekah Hallberg and I are very excited about this opportunity to develop the devotional into a 30-day journey that will include fresh content that has never been seen before and will even be available in bound, book form!
However, we still need your help!
The input that matters most to us is that of our loyal readers. We need to hear from you about Help for the Hurting Wife. We need testimonials from real women in real marriages who are doing their best to overcome. If you’re willing to share your stories, suggestions, comments, etc. with us, we may even include them in the new version of the book (so be sure to let us know if you do NOT want your comments published or if you wish to share them without your name attached). Let us know how Hope for the Hurting Wife helped to bring to life new hope for your marriage!
Here’s how to help:
Email me, Jen, at stultsmamaof4 [@] gmail.com but be sure to remove the spaces and the brackets (we have to do that so that internet bots can’t copy the email address directly).

Our book, Hope for the Hurting Wife, is a devotional that will meet you right where you are at and gently lead you toward the only hope that has the power to transform your marriage.
Here’s what you’ll find inside:
- personal stories from women who understand the struggle

- comfort and encouragement from God’s Word
- practical steps to take
- resources for further help
- bonus content
Our hope is that God can use our painful pasts to bring new life to other married women.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 2 Cor. 2:3-5
There is hope for your marriage if you are willing to seek it!
