The Essence of Femininity

A few weeks ago, Laura Doyle (author of The Surrendered Wife), had a post on her blog about that femininity can be summed up in one word, “receiving.” This is true physically in the marriage act. The husband is the giver and the wife is the receiver. It’s interesting to me to think about masculinity […]

Don’t Worry, I Am Not Perfect! Some Encouragement

(In case any of you are feeling discouraged after the posts about being an ungodly woman, and godly femininity part 1 and part 2) I don’t want any of you to think that I am perfect or to put me, my husband, our marriage (or any sinful human) on a pedestal. I am nothing and […]

A Fellow Wife Reflects on Her Two Year Journey

  I first “met” a Fellow Wife  in October, 2012. I can’t begin to count all the discussions we shared together.   This has been a difficult, painful and challenging journey at times – as it is for all of us who seek to know, obey and please Jesus. We must die to self, go […]

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 […]

May 28, 2013 – our 19th anniversary. Picture taken in front of the church where we were married in 1994. There is an incredible chapter in Watchman Nee’s “The Normal Christian Life” about “wasting ourselves” for Christ. If you haven’t read this book yet, PLEASE, PLEASE read it! I believe it should be a must-read […]

Respecting Our Husbands as Fathers – Part 1

Here is one Christian husband’s response to this post earlier in the week: Thank you for this post. Your advice is spot on! The thing that I want from my wife is input and cooperation, not demands, domination, manipulation or deception. The former draw me to her, the latter drive me away from her. I […]

How Disrespectful Was I?

I had a talk with Greg this past week and, out of curiosity, asked him if he would rank my level of disrespect earlier in our marriage on a 1-10 scale with 10 being the MOST DISRESPECTFUL wife he had ever seen. He said, “You were probably about a 4 or a 5.” I knew […]

She Is Worth Far More Than Rubies

Rough rubies, sell for about $900-$7000 for a small bag of them. A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. Her children arise and […]
