Welcome to The E.Y.E CANDY Wife! Perhaps a girlfriend put you on to this blog or you stumbled across a shared post on social media. However you came to visit, I’m really grateful that you found your way here! Now, if you’re anything like me and this is your first time visiting, you skipped past all the other stuff and came straight here, so you could get the rundown on the- who, what, and why. And I’m telling you, I can’t blame you. With everything you’ve got going on as a wife, career woman and/or mom your time is precious and I plan to honor that. So back to why you’re here…
The longer I’ve been married, the more I have come to realize that there is nothing better than marriage to hold a mirror up to our own personal brokenness. Whether we’d like to admit it or not, the intimacy of marriage has a way of pulling back layers and exposing the emotional frailties that so many of us like to hide or may not even realize exist. The complexities of these frailties definitely vary from woman to woman. But what I know for sure is that we all want to be loved. And what I have learned is that life has a way of manifesting that desire in many different ways. Because I hadn’t learned to fully love or value myself prior to marriage, I eventually came to realize that I didn’t have the capacity to receive love. Nor did I have the ability to love my husband freely and completely without holding him hostage to the pain of my past.
If you can relate you’re in the right place! The heart and soul of The E.Y.E CANDY Wife is dedicated to challenging and empowering you to break up with baggage and the insecurities that have followed you into your marriage. Adopting theEYEcandywife way of life will enable you to:
- Embrace the pain of your past: by accepting that your heart has been callused but recognizing that your pain has a greater life purpose.
- Yield to the process of change: by acknowledging your real need for change and surrendering completely to the process. And lastly,
- Envision the promise: becoming confident of God’s promise to complete the work he began in you and having the faith to believe that who you are is not who you will be!
Embracing this lifestyle is not without its challenges. In the process of of my transformation, I cried many nights and stopped trying more times than I could count. Looking back, I wish I had the wisdom and support of other transparent women that had found their way to the other side of the fight that I was in. It is my hope that here you will find the community, encouragement, accountability and tools to help you transform your personal life and revolutionize your marriage.
