We are so thankful for God’s grace to us in our daily lives, aren’t we? We know what it looks like – grace forgives, helps, restores, equips, guides, and restores. But what would grace in marriage look like? Let’s put it in a practical light of how you and I can practice grace in our marriage relationship today.
- Pray daily for your mate – Find Bible passages to pray for him and watch how God answers!
- Regularly learn about him – Things are constantly changing. What do you need to learn?
- Find new ways to serve him – Be the one with the biggest servant’s heart. If you want to be great, serve.
- Look for ways to surprise him – Find something that would be a blessing and do it when he least expects it.
- Withhold criticism about him – Keep it from your thoughts, conversations to others or him.
- Touch him – No one else but you can.
- Respect him – To his face, behind his back, tell others why you respect the man you chose to marry.
- Affirm him – Remind him that you’re on his team, no matter what.
- Forgive –Call a truce in a disagreement – Hold out both your hands to him, look him in the eye and say what you would want to hear…”I’m sorry. Let’s make up.”
- Be cheerful – Be the reason he’s glad he came home!
You may have screamed, “He doesn’t deserve __________.” That’s why it’s called grace. Do it for him like God does it for you.
As I close out this blogging week, I’m going to share with you the first broadcast from Refresh Her that aired on WHCB Radio last Saturday. You can hear the broadcast live each Saturday at 3:45. This is 15 minutes long, so find the best way to take the time to listen – perhaps on your phone while you’re doing another task or getting ready for the day. Click below to listen!
Is this broadcast something you might like me to post each week? I’m curious if there would be enough interest to find a way to post the broadcast after it has aired on the radio station. Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
Also, how will you show grace in your marriage today?

I just listened to the broadcast and it was wonderful. Praying that God uses you greatly through this new outlet. May you reach many lost souls and that they are encouraged and they give their lives to Christ.
Thank you, Tammy; you’re so encouraging. That souls would come to Christ is my prayer, too.
I’m so happy that you put your broadcast on. I wanted to listen last Saturday and missed the time that it aired. I’m looking forward to listening to it today. Thank you for your post. They live up to the name of your blog and are a refreshment!
I’m thankful for this outlet to encourage you as you have me!
Enjoyed your broadcast. Sounds like your daughter Whitney’s voice in the introduction and conclusion.
Thank you for listening, Janet. You have a good ear! That indeed is Whitney that did the intro and ending!
Please continue to post these on your blog. Thank you for all you do to spread God’s word to enrich marriages.
Thank you, Sharon. It’s my prayer to honor God and refresh women in every area of their lives – including marriage. We all need it, don’t we?!
It would be a blessing to me to have the radio broadcast in your post each week. I have been able to hear the first two “live” and they have been such a blessing! There may be some weeks when schedules may conflict with the broadcast time and it would be wonderful to still be able to listen. Thank you for all you do to encourage and teach women! You are greatly loved and appreciated! ❤️
Claire, thank you for making the effort to listen to the broadcast and also to give input about posting them here. I couldn’t do what I do without the faithful prayers of dear friends like you. I’m privileged and honored that God would open doors for me to share His Word with women. You are loved and appreciated much, too!!
I finally had a chance to listen this week and really enjoyed hearing you! Great message! I’m so excited for you, and for the rest of us who will get to listen. Thank you for posting the link. Blessings!!
Thank you, Alinda. I’m so new to all this, and feel so unable for the task, but I am trusting an omnipotent God to equip me and use my simple words in obedience to Him. 💕
