When Would I Not Submit to My Husband?

  This is such a serious issue. How I pray that God’s Spirit will be very much involved to help me write and to help each of us understand things clearly. I have had many women read a bit about biblical submission and conclude that submitting to our husbands means things like: My husband is […]

Biblical Submission Is Not Passivity

There seems to be so much confusion around the concept of biblical submission for wives. I’d like to discuss today something that biblical submission is not because a number of women think they hear me say that biblical submission means passivity: I shouldn’t ever say how I feel or what I want. I should have […]

How God Has Led Me Through Greg – and BOOK NEWS!!!!!!!

  This is a follow up to the post earlier this week “My Husband Doesn’t Have a Calling from God, How Can I Follow Him?” When I dreamed about being a Christian missionary as a teenager, there was no internet. I could never have imagined that God would use me and my future life story […]

Does Being a Biblically Submissive Wife Mean I Can’t Say How I Feel and What I Need?

Nope. We CAN say what we want, how we feel, what we think, what our concerns are and what we need. (Please keep in mind that when I talk about submission, I am always talking about the biblical concept, not the worldly definition. For more about biblical submission, please read here.) We have total freedom […]

Submitting to Our Husbands in the “Small” Things

FROM A HUSBAND (his response to a question for husbands earlier last week): As to respecting me in “small things”, I have to assume you mean things that aren’t all that important.

“Your Blog Made Me SO Angry!”

An email I received from a dear wife.  LOVE this.  I receive a lot of emails in this same vein.  Many wives say things like, “I hated you and I loved you.”  The stuff I share is HARD to hear.  We aren’t used to being confronted with our sin as women.  That is PAINFUL.  And we aren’t […]

The Powerful Concept of Submitting Under Protest – Part 2

Click here for Part 1 FROM PEACEFULWIFE: Submitting under protest is not something I think we should need to use often, (hopefully).  But if we strongly disagree about something, then it can be important for us to use this concept. *** If our husband is asking us to clearly sin or to condone clear sin, […]

“Do I Say What I Want – or Not?”

From a dear wife.  I love her heart to please God and honor her husband.  A big “thank you” to her for allowing me to share her questions. 🙂 Dear PeacefulWife, Since I found your blog, I have been reading it and watching you on YouTube (channel = “April Cassidy”) as well. I have learned […]

Biblical Submission Does Not = The Husband Is Always "Right"

Ladies, I would like to attempt to clarify a common misunderstanding about biblical submission. For me to submit to someone in a position of God-given authority does NOT mean that person is “always right.”  No human is always right.  NOT EVEN ME!!!! 🙂  I know!  It is a shock, isn’t it? There are many kinds […]
