At i we want to help you grow in healthy relationships whether you’re single and dating, newlyweds, married or widowed.Find encouragement and feel uplifted with the sharing of personal experiences from women in every walk of the Christian women’s life.So start with Jesus, learn to love Him and receive His love, enjoy Him, because when you get your love from Jesus, your spouse becomes a gift, not a necessity.
