Power in Unity: Wedding Season is almost here!

Every time wedding season hits here in Orlando it always gets me thinking. All this money spent on a day that people will most likely forget all the details they spent so much money on. And maybe even forget why they did it in the first place years later. Also please don’t get me wrong I pay the bills by brides paying me to do their wedding makeup and I’m so so grateful! This post is about the heart, and how we may make decisions based on emotions that can ruin a very good thing. ( I know this because oh boy, I’ve made some crazy emotionally bad decisions. )

The divorce rate in America is mind blowingly high. And it breaks my heart. I come from a divorced home and it’s heart breaking to experience as a kid. So much uncertainty and broken promises. But looking back now I’m grateful that the pain has made me wiser and stand so much more firm on what I believe and hope for myself, my marriage and my future kids. The lord always makes a good thing out of what may seem impossibly bad at the time.

Now as a married women myself I believe that I can be just one voice to help change a generation of people who have no regard for the true meaning of marriage and the true convenent you make with your man. I’ll be honest it’s not easy but one thing I’ve already come to find in these few years, it’s so worth it!

Let’s have some real talk. The devil hates unity and he hates marriage even more beacause it is the perfect example of unity the way god meant it to be! Why do you think the stats are so high for divorce? His desire is for a broken, lost, rebellious people. But I SAY NO! I say YES to forever love, I WILL believe in marriage! The world will tell you all the different, believe me and I’m sure you can agree, just turn on the tv. So will you take a stand with me?

My heart for unity, for beauty, for love is hurting right now for my country. The state of America is so broken. But it’s time to see it as it could be and stand and declare what I believe America was founded on! That one nation under God is still possible! Marriage covenant is powerful! Beauty from within is way more attractive than beauty without heart!

I hope I stirred your mind to take a stand for what you believe in, you definitely don’t have to agree with me but just seek the truth out for yourself. Your future self will thank you. 🙂

    • Thanks so much Victoria! It’s always nerve racking when you share your thoughts on something so opposite our current culture! Thanks for the encouragement! 🙂

  • What beautiful words!!! I also have a heart for marriage! Keep fighting the good fight!! #marriagematters #celebratethevow

  • As makeup artists, we pour our heart into wedding day makeup. When we see that the marriage didn’t work, it is heartbreaking because we left a little piece of our soul with them. Keep your head up. Keep doing what you love and do it continue to do it with passion! <3

  • Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts! . . . And I agree . . . I think so many focus on the wedding day and forget what really matters . . . The Marriage. The Covenant.

  • “The devil hates unity …”
    Girl … I could not agree more! Even when the enemy is trying to attack your marriage, we need to get on our knees, take up our armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-19), prayer up and send the enemy packing! <3
    Great blog! <3

  • Yes! Our relationships are like gardens; we’ll only get out of them what we plant and carefully nurture! <3

  • Such boldness in truth – so amazed by YOU!
