God will never give you anything that you cannot handle with Him by your side.
You are to be admired for staying committed to your husband despite his sickness and for honoring the marriage vow that you made not only to your husband, but above all, to God. Take heart! God raised Jesus from the grave! He can and He wants to deliver your husband and heal both of your hearts from the heartache that alcoholism brings into lives.
I am a native of Texas, born and raised in a small town. I graduated from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas in 2008 with a Bachelor's degree and from Tarleton State University in 2019 with a Master's in English and Curriculum. I currently am a full time teacher, mother, and wife.
God has put writing on my heart in order to inspire and encourage others that are currently or have experienced similar tribulations in life. My hope is that my stories will give others hope and comfort through the trials they face throughout their lives.
My first story, Lonely Road of Faith, is inspired by real-life events and me and my husband's broken paths that eventually led back to each other and to God.
