How do you overcome newlywed problems?
Recently I was going through some boxes when I came across letters my husband and I wrote each other when we were newly married.
As I plodded through the notes, my heart broke. I remembered the bleakness and darkness of the season.
How I thought I couldn’t take it anymore. How afraid I was when we couldn’t talk; we had to write letters to one another because we couldn’t do a face-to-face.
I was terrified of the future.
As I thought about those days, I decided to shoot a quick video to encourage the wife who’s facing the problems I encountered as a new bride.
We all have challenges, no matter how long we have been married but difficulties can be especially overwhelming in the early years and months.
Ps. I didn’t get to say this in the video; but whatever you are facing today, remember that these insurmountable challenges, these newlywed problems which threaten to take you out can become the things that make you stronger.
The dilemmas that cut to your very core, when you finally work through them, can become a testimony and foundation on which your marriage can stand.
In the video, I share one of the things that made the difference, the reason we are still together today, by the grace of God.

Disclaimer – For those facing abusive, adulterous, addictive situations in marriage, part of your process includes making sure you are safe, seeking help (from mentors, pastors or authorities) and living within boundaries.
