“I Want to Tithe, but My Husband Doesn’t”

Photo by Fabian Blank on Unsplash What is a wife to do if this is her difficult situation? NOTE – I am speaking about a hypothetical situation here. Greg and I wholeheartedly endorse tithing or even giving more than a tithe for believers in Christ. Not because we have to – but because we GET […]

Don’t Take the Bait on Valentine’s Day! (Video – SKIT)

Ladies, Satan would love to use Valentine’s Day to create bitterness, resentment, jealousy, division, hatred, and contempt in our lives. Don’t take the bait! It’s fine to ask for us to ask for what we would like respectfully. But if things don’t work out – we don’t have to lash out destructively. We also don’t […]

Stop Watching Football and Spend Time with Me! – SKIT

My latest skit video on Youtube. This one is about 6 minutes. First I share some destructive approaches to trying to get our men to give us more attention. This was the old me. These were the things I did for a long time, not realizing how much I was sabotaging the very intimacy I […]

A Wife Asks, “Why Is It That It Seems Like the Wife Always Has to Change First?”

Should a Christian Wife Consider Separation?
