Welcome my name is Sherri. I am a follower of Jesus. I have been blessed to be the wife to my best friend Markiel. I am a mother to my tween son Amari and my preschool daughter Sanai. By God's grace I have found true joy in serving my family in our home. Even amongst all the everyday craziness I know this where God has called me to be. I learn something new everyday.

4 Things The Holy Spirit Taught Me About My Marriage

Hi, thanks for stopping by.  I know you must be new here, because I am new. Please check out

In marriage it is so important to be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit. It seems that ever since I have been married the Holy Spirit has really been teaching me some valuable  lessons. I realized that the only way I can be the wife God has called me to be, means I must listen and learn from the Holy Spirits leading. With that being said here are 4 of the most impacting things that I have learned from the Holy Spirit about my marriage.

4 Things The Holy Spirit Taught Me About My Marriage

1. My marriage is my ministry-Ministry: The act of serving.  As wives we have a calling to submit, serve, and support our husbands.  When you pray for your husband or with your husband you are engaging in ministry.  Marriage is a service to God.  By loving God and honoring your vows you are serving the Lord.  Your marriage can also be a service to others, by being an example to other couples that are already married, or looking to get married.  Just remember you can be a positive or negative example.

2. God has called me to be my Husband's prayer warrior-When we pray for our husbands earnestly, specifically, and consistently, it can have a lasting impact.  Make praying for your husband a daily habit.  Listen and communicate with your husband, so you can know what specific areas He needs prayer.  God also works through your life while you are praying for your husband.

3. God uses my husband to speak to me.  When we get married two become one.  So often God can confirm His plan through your husband.  Also we must be careful of feelings of criticism, when God uses our husbands to convict us.  It important that we remain accepting and thankful, because it is an opportunity to grow.  If you are unsure God's will for you, find out what your husband thinks, assuming he is sensitive to the things of the Lord.  When you and your husband sense the same conviction to go in the same direction, it is an indication of what God's will is.

4. Being a loving wife=Being a good forgiver-Being married is the best way to exercise the act of forgiveness.  God allows so many opportunities in this relationship to say "Sorry" and show forgiveness.  It's not always easy to do, but it is definitely what God wants us to do.  Forgiveness allows us to experience freedom.  We must start with forgiveness in our own hearts before we can pour it out to our husbands.  Anger is natural and also inevitable, but leaving it to fester can become a dangerous thing in our marriages.  

You can never learn enough when it comes to the Holy Spirit.  This is a continual process that both spouses should be open to throughout their marriage.  There is always something new that you can learn. Pray that the Holy Spirit can teach you something new that can benefit your marriage.
