Hi there! My name is Rajjae and I am SO happy you decided to visit GLF. I’ve been married now, going on, 11 years, but I’ve been with my husband a total of 13 years. We met when I was 18 and, as they say, the rest is history. My husband (who prefers a remote presence on this blog) and I have 3 children…boys. All boys. Sometimes I have to pinch myself when I think about how drastically my life has changed over the years. I went from being a wife, to a being a wife and a mom, to being a military (Army) wife and mom in a matter of 4 and a half years. To put it lightly, life has offered me many opportunities to ponder the many questions pertaining to God, Love and Family.
I wanted to write this blog because, over the past few years I could see the marriages around me crumbling, especially in the military community. I believe my niche’ is writing creatively, because that’s how I think, but I saw a need in this area of learning life as a spouse and parent, and so I decided to put my 2 cents in the pot. I am by no means a marriage expert. I do not have credentials that tell you I’ve studied enough to be able to advise you on how to make appropriate marital decisions. I do, however, possess a Godly wisdom- yes Godly with a capital “G”. The book of Proverbs (chapter 2) tells me that the Lord gives wisdom…so I feel confident in saying that as I write these posts, the Lord is speaking through me directly to you about your situations.
I know what some of you may be thinking, “What if I don’t pray, or even believe in all that God stuff in the first place?” and my response is this: give it a try. I’ve prayed for nearly all the major struggles in my own marriage, and, whenever I decided to give up my own will and obey, I was able to see that situation through to a happy continuance. I think you can too.
My hope is, that as you read this blog, you find your voice, you see things through a new perspective, and your family life (With or without children) is changed in a beautiful way.
…my heart to yours,
