Hot Wives: A Very Special Valentine’s Gift from Me to You

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
I love seeing marriages thrive any time of year. But I know Valentine's can be a particularly special or fun opportunity for the two of you. And when I kept hearing my wife-friends RAVE about these two essential oils, I knew I had to share. Especially before the Valentine's ordering rush! But I also wanted to do something extra special for wives who enjoy -- or want to try -- something new with their one who said...

“Someone I Know is Having an Affair: Now What?” | The Redeemed Adulteress

By | The Truth About Affairs and The Other Woman | No Comments
"Someone I know is having an affair. Rebecca, what do I do?" One of the more common questions I'm asked is what to do when someone you care about is having an affair. I applaud people who ask -- the courage it takes and the care it conveys. Because a lot of people screw this part up. When I was in my affair all those years ago, I experienced every type of reaction when is started confessing and...

To Every “Starving Artist” Writer Out There

By | Writing Advice & How-Tos | No Comments
It's more possible than ever for writers to accomplish their goals and live their dreams. Most artists today are not starving. They're anorexic. I have aspiring writers reach out to me from time to time. They all want advice, but I have yet to meet one that has what it takes. Not because they lack a compelling story. And not because they lack ability. But because they lack teachability. Not because they lack talent. But because...

Former Other Woman Explains: What Would Make Someone Be Interested in a Married Man

By | The Truth About Affairs and The Other Woman | No Comments
Given how publicly I've talked about how I was redeemed from being the "other woman" in a married man's affair, I periodically receive questions via Facebook. I appreciate when people ask (vs. assume) and I admire the courage to ask. Adultery is an important topic for us all to talk about (yes, among people of faith, too). Because I believe that talking leads to understanding that can: help proactively protect more marriages; and/or help more people...

Former “Other Woman” Breaks Her Silence

By | Daily Encouragement, The Truth About Affairs and The Other Woman | No Comments
I never cease to be grieved and angered by the news of another affair. And not just when it's as blindsiding as the TerKeurst affair was to me. I hate adultery but hurt for the people involved. And I have good reason to. Which is why I won't stay silent about my own past: A decade ago this year, I was the "other woman" in a married man's affair. Yes, as a Christian. It's not something I set...

1 Way to Recognize Bad Relationship Advice from Married Women

By | Daily Encouragement, The Truth About Affairs and The Other Woman | No Comments
When it comes to offering marriage advice to single women or other wives: Age (of the giver or her marriage) alone does not qualify her advice as good to take. That doesn't mean we rebel against good, godly advice, becoming hard-hearted or closed-eared and unteachable. It just means we become better at recognizing good advice when we hear it. So how can a younger wife or a not-yet-married woman tell if the advice being offered is good?...

“Am I REALLY DOING THIS?!” | Rebecca Halton Blog

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
I WAS SCARED. "Am I REALLY DOING THIS?!" I asked myself, each breath becoming deliberate as I looked around at my boxes and suitcases and stuff, feeling emotionally and physically exhausted from the move. Furniture sold. Apartment vacated. Tickets purchased. I had my share of second thoughts. I felt my share of fear. Like: What if I get sick; a complication? What if I fail? What if I succeed? But greater than the doubts and...

Single Christian Women: Stop B!%#@ing That You Can’t Find a Good Man

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
From one not-yet-married Christian woman to another, I mean this in the nicest tough-lovin' way possible: Stop bitchin' that you can't find a good man. This is one of the biggest "reasons" (read "excuses") I hear from unmarried Christian women. I'm talking about women who blame their singleness on a perceived scarcity of good men. I recognize the excuse -- because it's one I was making, too. Until Holy Spirit called me "a poser." Yes, really: a poser. As in, synonymous with "fake,"...

The BEDROOM OIL My Wife-Friends RAVE About | Giveaway

By | Daily Encouragement | No Comments
She was bursting with excitement: "Girl, it worrrrrks!" She went on to explain how she first gave him a soothing lower-back massage, using the Peppermint and Lavender oil from her wholesale premium starter kit... ...then she applied 5 - 6 drops of Shutran oil directly to his (ahem) and she massaged it in with some coconut oil before "the two became one," if you know what I mean (wink, wink, nudge, nudge). Suggestion: Start with 1 drop, especially...
