Hi there! I’m Jennifer O. White and I’m really glad we are getting a chance to meet. Prayers for New Brides: Putting on the Armor After the Wedding Dress is my “God is able to do more than you can ask or imagine” banner and I’m flying it high over brides and wives of every age and stage of life.
I am did not write this book because I have life with God and marriage all figured out. I wrote it for you because as a wife, I have learned how much I need God.
Here’s what I know. You have to fight to stay married. And I don’t mean fight each other. In marriage, we have to suit up to fight your own selfish thoughts, expectations, and every social norm that does not honor God and His ways. We have a great God and He has an enemy who wants to distort and ultimately destroy the institution of marriage.
I’m well acquainted with the pain of divorce. My parents divorced when I was in college. My first marriage ended after three short years because I decided there was no hope for us. When I started questioning the permanence of my second marriage, I cried out to God for help and He came to the rescue. In this book, I share how He shepherded me into biblical counseling, Bible studies and the practice of praying His Word. The Imperfect Wives allowed me to tell some of my story in these interviews: Pray the Word & Stand! Your Posture in the Spiritual Battle.
I’m not a Bible scholar. I’m a former social worker and marketing executive who has found God faithful when all the other options failed. David and I have been married eighteen years now. We are quite imperfect and truly happy together. We enjoy laughing and dancing together, often at the same time. We don’t have children together but we dearly love David’s adult children: Deanna, Lance, his wife Chelse and our new granddaughter, Kennedy.
