This week, on my blog http://www.peacefulwife.com, we are examining a topic that is VERY difficult for many wives – giving space to their husbands.

Greg and I will be celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary this May, God-willing, of course. In the past few years, God has brought so much healing to our marriage. We have more intimacy on every level than I thought we ever would for a long time earlier in our marriage. In fact, our marriage is […]

Sometimes we latch on to God’s commands to us to obey Him (i.e.: practicing chastity, not using drugs, not being addicted to alcohol, not lying/cheating/gossiping, loving others, giving to the poor, tithing, practicing honesty, being moral people, going to church, praying and reading our Bibles) and we assume that if we do these things, then, […]
