What made Greg so special to me that I stayed with him and never dated anyone else? There were so many things I admired about him: My Daddy approved of him and liked him. That was THE most important thing to me! I had always been my Daddy’s girl. He was a good student and… Continue reading Why I Fell For My Husband
I have had a request to share how my husband and I met and a little more about our dating history. There was a strong Christian boy when I was in 9th grade who had asked me to be his girlfriend that year. My twin sister and I had made a rule with our Daddy… Continue reading How I Met My Husband

I REALLY believed I was being helpful – but my husband saw me as being prideful (always “right”) and controlling.… Continue reading A REAL Helpmeet Suitable for Him
That’s what I used to think. I am “helping” him! That sounds noble and godly, right? That is what I told myself.
