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 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 […]

  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 […]
