Hello there, my name is Gloria Warren! I'm a Wife, Mom, Certified Christian Relationship Coach, Independent Gospel Recording Artist, and YouTuber from Sandusky, OH.
I am the Founder of The Eloquent Wife™. My purpose is to serve Christian wives and help them break free from existing in their marriage, learn how to speak their truth in love, and build a prosperous marriage.
Whether you’ve been married for 5 months, 5 years, or 30 years, I believe that God can and will reveal His unlimited wisdom to help you flourish in your beautiful role as a wife.
My Back Story
I got married at the age of 20 and have been on this journey as a wife for a decade.
In my eyes, my husband found me in the most unusual - yet divine way. He noticed me through a mutual friend we both had on Facebook (who is actually now my sister in law who's married to his twin brother!)
So, we began to talk and talk and talk, and one day it dawned on me that this may just be my husband. He was sweet, respectful, saved, and honestly, after getting to know him, I never could imagine him jeopardizing our relationship - so I had a strong feeling he was going to be my husband.
Within 8 months, we were engaged and before our 2nd year anniversary, we were married.
SN: I have always been a firm believer that if a man really loves you and values you, he won't be afraid to wife you.
I packed up everything that belonged to me, which was my bed, a little decor I bought to go into our new apartment, a couch my parents let me have from the spare living room they had, and my Chi-Pom dog named Imani. We got in our rented u-haul and traveled from MS to OH to start our new life together.
As a young wife, it was fun. I loved the idea of officially being a "real woman!" - but that was far from my reality.
I had no clue as to what I was doing. Even though I had an awesome example modeled before me my whole life, once I said I do and the confetti hit the ground, it was on and poppin'!
Now, don't get me wrong, the honeymoon phase is blissful and beautiful. But, when you start getting into the nitty gritty of blending your lives as one - learning that you have to compromise more than you'd like, you begin to see - "wow, marriage is about more than just having someone to sleep with while you Netflix and chill. "
I will say that I'm proud of how I adjusted being so young and moving as far away as I did - however, this girl (me) was a mess.
After 6 years of marriage, God finally allowed me to have an "aha" moment. That "aha" moment revealed to me:
You need to die to yourself
Forgive more freely
Completely submit to your husband
Bridle your tongue
Learn how to actually be a godly wife
"Wow. Okay Lord."
It was in this moment I realized a transformation had to come.
Through my transformation, The Eloquent Wife™ was birthed.
Through The Eloquent Wife, I am able to minister and teach the heart of God to so many women who are hurting and feel alone and abandoned by their husbands. There are beautiful days in marriage, but the days where it's gloomy sometimes makes it hard to process if the Lord is present.
One of the greatest weapon Satan uses is isolation. Therefore, The Eloquent Wife Academy is a place where wives from all walks of life can be a part of a godly community and have accountability to learn and thrive in their wifelihood journey.
