Share Your Heart
By David Chadwick

I was going through a difficult time. Ministry had become too burdensome. I was ready to quit.

My wife, Marilynn, and I went away for a few days alone. I was trying to figure out if I could continue doing ministry.

One night, I couldn’t sleep. Marilynn asked me what was wrong. I didn’t want to admit my weakness. She insisted. Finally, I relented. The dam burst. Tears flowed. I shared with her everything that was happening in my heart.

Then I began to feel embarrassed. Marilynn had seen me in my weakest moment. Did she think less of me? She shocked me with her response.

“David, I believe in you.” Then she squeezed my hand and said it again. “I believe in you.”

The trajectory of my life was forever changed. Courage returned. New hope filled my heart. I knew that I could continue.

What Marilynn wanted to hear was my heart. She desired to be strong when I was weak. She felt a call to help me carry my burdens.

But it couldn’t happen unless I was willing to share my heart with her.

Husbands, honor your wife by sharing your heart. They want to be strong for you.

Let them!


Recover the lost art of honor – and improve your relationships!

Strong, healthy relationships require honor –because people must treat each other with respect in order to develop trust and love. That’s why the Bible commands us to honor our brothers and sisters in Christ.

But that’s not always easy – especially when others frustrate us.

We want to help you improve your relationships – including your marriage – with The Lost Art of Honor, a new CD series from David and Marilynn Chadwick.

This powerful, four-part series will teach you…

  • What the Bible says about honoring each other
  • Practical ways to show honor to those around you
  • How to cultivate a culture of honor

The Lost Art of Honor is our way of saying thanks for your gift below to give others a fresh perspective on the reasons for hope in Jesus Christ.

So, thank you for your generosity to provide a Christian voice of reason in the modern world.

Request Yours
