This started sometime back in August 2016 when I (Tomi) figured “oh wow, I am learning ALOT from listening and reading books about marriage and how to be a better spouse”. I wasn’t just learning a lot, I was also applying what I was learning. Sometimes I tell myself “that is easier said than done” but then I remember DIVORCE IS WAY HARDER so I will rather do all I can do now to be a better wife.
In the beginning, I was a terrible wife. No joke! I was just as ignorant as ignorant can be. I thought I knew it all. I thought I had it altogether. I didn’t. I am just glad God has a way of letting marriage break and remold one. He broke my pride and my ego.
Here I am, learning everyday and living in the joy and peace of God. Sharing my thoughts with you has also helped a lot. It keeps me accountable.
I am so grateful for you. You are off to a good start. Don’t give up! Just know that marriage has its ups and downs and your goal is to make the good days last long while thinning out the bad days.
I hope you are learning a lot as you journey with God and I through marriage? Learn as much as you can. You don’t know when you will need it.
Thanks for all the comments and the encouraging testimonies, it humbles me each time.
Imagine 1 MILLION Young wives and Young Wives To Be around the globe, knowing and learning what you are learning here? You know how many marriages will be saved? Help us grow. We are desperate to reach the “four winds and seven seas” (I read that in Acts 13:47)
God has a plan. I am anxious to get there but trust me, I CAN wait. The community has increased over the past four years. God sent me HELP to keep up.
To my God Sent Helpers, you know who you are. Thank you! I am so blessed to have you all.
In other to sustain all these platforms, we would be moving from all the smaller groups and platforms to a more centralized platform. This platform will have LIVE Videos, subscription based services, book club, and small groups where they can have easy access to resources to help them be a better wife and a better person.
We would achieve these by using;
- Effective Team Members
- Networking and Ultimately,
One Young Wife was created to provide a safe place for Wives to have a safe, open and honest conversation about their struggles and victories in Marriage.
We plan on executing this by providing small groups where wives with similar struggles can talk together and discuss what they are struggling with and how they get through with it.
In these small groups, we will also provide subject matter experts who can professionally help members sieve through whatever the situation is and get to the victory point.
In every wife's life, there are different phases. What you are dealing with today will not be what you are dealing with tomorrow, so it is totally fine if you are moving groups depending on the stage of life you are in.
We would also achieve our WHY by providing certified counseling services as well as resources, summaries of books that have been written by subject matter experts. These books will be summarized and practical and applicable tips will be presented for life application.
You can join the Inner Cohort of One Young Wife by signing up here.
If you do, you will also receive an eBook for free. It contains transformational text messages you can send to your spouse. Trust me, it is a life changer.
Thanks for letting me serve you.
