Hi, my name is Tiffany Godfrey and I’ve been married for 15 years.
During this time, I’ve had my share of good, bad, and ugly. But I’ve learned how to navigate through the tough spots of my marriage through prayer, time, patience, work, and faith in God.
My journey to becoming a Udemy instructor was an adventurous one, filled with joy, pain, bumps, bruises, and ultimately, discovery.
I say this because I learned two things:
·What to do as a wife
·What NOT to do as a wife
I started almost 20 years ago as a middle school science teacher. After two years of teaching, I realized that this was not the profession for me.
But I heard wedding bells ringing and I knew I would need income as I prepared to become a wife. So instead of quitting my job, I continued to work with hormonal pre-teens until my season in education ended.
From that point on, I recognized that I would need to make sacrifices…all in the name of love.
A few years later, I pursued a career in pharmaceutical sales where I learned the importance of building relationships. As I’m sure you probably know, the best way to connect with people is to identify with them by building a relationship with them. Having this experience also helped me to connect better with my husband as we grew in our marriage.
As much as I enjoyed pharmaceutical sales, I still felt a void.
I didn’t really figure out what was missing until after about ten of our friends (ten different couples) divorced or separated within the span of one year!
This was horrible and hurtful. And to make things worse, my husband and I struggled in our marriage during this time.
I had a decision to make: either complain, cry, and give into the status quo of divorce. Or I could do something about it. I finally figured out what I was called to do: to help women to grow, be healed, and flourish in their relationships with their husbands, and others in their sphere of influence.
I chose to do something about the problems people faced in their marriages, and I started a website specifically for married women. It’s a hub of articles, interviews, and blog posts that women can turn to for tips, advice, and healing for their pain and frustration.
Through this site, I also share my challenges, how I overcame them, and some helpful marriage tips for married women who are hurting and need hope. In addition, we share materials on communication, sex, money, adultery, and other topics that affect marriage.
I also wrote a book called Is Marriage a Joke? (found on Amazon), that focuses specifically on how a woman can learn to communicate effectively with her husband, even if he won't talk.
Many people ask me why I reach out to women as opposed to the woman and the man. While couples often need help with their marriages, I’ve learned that men are a lot different from women. And since I’m a woman and I can fully empathize with the emotions, feelings, and thoughts of a woman, I also understand the needs of women. For this reason, I’ve chosen to specifically help women to do what they can do to fix their marriages. As a result, their husbands can respond to the changes they make.
I want to show women specifically what they can do to help strengthen their marriages. I believe as they consistently implement certain principles they can change the climate of their marriages. And in many cases, their husbands will change for the better and they will enjoy a stronger, healthier marriage.
Offering solid marriage content is a major part of what I do. And although I’m no longer a middle school teacher, I want to encourage, equip, and teach you how to get your marriage back on track.
Let me give you the tools to pursue a strong, purposeful relationship and bring the “spicy” back into your marriage!
