A guest post by Surrenderedgirl – I’m so thankful for the opportunity to share what God is doing in this dear sister’s life. May her post richly bless you, as well: After several months of dating, I had built up resentment towards my boyfriend. I don’t naturally talk about my feelings much, so I would […]

“I Won’t Let My Man Do Something I Think Is Dangerous”

June 25, 2015 by

20

A lot of *girlfriends and wives have this viewpoint today. We try to forbid our men from doing the things our guys love to do that could possibly cause injury. We think we are doing this out of love and that we are “protecting our men.” But is this a wise approach? Will it draw […]

Seeking to Understand and Bless Our Brothers in Christ

June 1, 2015 by

Today’s post is a guest post by a single sister in Christ in her 30s. I so appreciate her willingness to share with us what God is showing her! I have often heard of the battle of sexes. There are jokes, books, television shows, and frequent general conversations about this very topic. I am actually […]

Radically Change Your Reality

April 16, 2015 by

Our daughter and I watched a show with a cat behaviorist, Jackson Galaxy, together last week. The cat owner was a famous young woman who often tweeted about her cat and used some dreadful names for him in her tweets. Galaxy said something so profound: Words have power. What you speak becomes your reality. He […]

Thankfully, God Doesn’t Need “Space”

March 30, 2015 by

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. I think that is pretty counterintuitive to a lot of us as women, because many of us get married because we DON’T want to have space. We want constant emotional/spiritual/verbal connection. […]

Instead of Reacting in Anger…

February 26, 2015 by

When someone does something that offends you or they sin against you, how do you usually respond? I’d love to encourage us all to take a time out to go pray and journal through our thoughts, anger, motives, and priorities if possible before we respond. It is easy to have a sinful knee-jerk response to […]

Do I Condone “BDSM” or “Christian Domestic Discipline”?

February 17, 2015 by

18

Warning – if you have never heard about these topics before, they are often very dark perversions of God’s design for sexuality, femininity, masculinity, and marriage. I am going to purposely leave out as much detail as I can. Some may prefer not to read about these issues at all. I am talking about them […]

I Like to Be in Control

February 5, 2015 by

    By a single sister in Christ. I’m so thankful for her willingness to share: WHO IS YOUR MASTER? For months this question has run through my mind daily and hourly. If I am being honest, sometimes it runs thru my mind much more than I care to admit. It is a reminder question, […]

Should I Ever Share My Concerns with My Man?

February 3, 2015 by

1

Yep. (I write from a slant of having been a disrespectful, controlling, Type A, perfectionistic, outspoken, go-getter kind of woman. This post may best fit women who are approaching relationships from this same slant. My prayer is that it might be a blessing to everyone. AND, please keep in mind, I am assuming that you […]

Unlearning the Ungodly Example of a Controlling, Disrespectful Mother

January 23, 2015 by

27

  Unfortunately, some of us learned to be controlling and disrespectful by the poor examples of our mothers. If we have witnessed a dominant, type-A, perfectionistic, manipulative, overly emotional, resentful, bitter, controlling, fearful, anxious, disrespectful wife and a passive, unplugged father for 20+ years – these dynamics can seem “normal” and “right.” These moms did […]
