What Exactly is Marriage?

What Exactly is Marriage?

The definition of marriage has been incredibly watered down in our culture. Many believe they don’t need a piece of paper. They can live together, and this is okay. Many young “Christians” believe this to be true. Some believe if you’re having sex and even having children, you’re married. So what exactly is marriage? “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave…

Winning Her Adulterous Husband After Ten Years!

One woman shared the pain she was in because her husband was having an affair. She’s understandably devastated. Another woman responded to her. She had an adulterous husband who had left her for ten years. This was how she responded to the suffering woman: “I have been where you are and it is devastating. My husband and I are back together after ten years of him being away from God. It’s a traumatic thing to go through but also a…

Patriarchy Cannot Be Erased

Patriarchy Cannot Be Erased

If you don’t read Doug Wilson, you are missing out. I follow him on Instagram. He wrote an excellent post called A Matter of Rank. I am going to share the words on the slides he shared on Instagram. Go to the post for his entire thoughts about this. “The desire that a woman has to usurp the rule of her husband is a desire that goes back to the third chapter of Genesis. This is the source of the…

Freezing Eggs to Have Children Later

Freezing Eggs to Have Children Later

Women are actually freezing their eggs so they don’t have to worry about not being able to have children later in life. They can put off childbearing while they pursue their careers because, after all, careers are far superior to being home while being a wife and mother. This is at least what women have been told all throughout their childhood through Hollywood, schools, parents, and sadly, even churches. With modern technology, women don’t have to worry about the ticking…

What Happened to Church Discipline?

What Happened to Church Discipline?

Years ago, Ken and I mentored young couples who wanted to marry. This was at a large church near us. The head of this pre-marital ministry once told us that he had been doing this for over 30 years. When he began, the vast majority of couples were not fornicating nor living together. Now, the vast majority are, even though they have all grown up in this church. What happened??? (This same church forbid me from teaching women to submit…

Why Most Women Opposed Women’s Suffrage

Why Most Women Opposed Women’s Suffrage

Did you know that most women opposed women’s suffrage in the mid 1800s and early 1900s? Here are the reasons why they did: Only 3 percent of the women in Ohio, Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming wanted to vote. “It is unwise, unfair, and unjust to force upon a majority of women, a measure which is obnoxious to all their ideals of womanhood, in order that the wishes of a small minority may prevail.” It seems it’s always the wicked,…

Women Leaving Their Posts

Women Leaving Their Posts

Many women disagreed with me on my post about Popular Female Influencers Divorcing. I knew they would. It’s not popular to ever question a woman who is divorcing her husband even when she has “biblical” reasons. I had my reasons for doing so. A woman in the chat room who was a young and popular blogger shared the following. She explains my reasons perfectly. “When women leave their posts (their calling as wife and mother) and pursue building something else…

Popular Female Christian Influencers Divorcing

Popular Female Christian Influencers Divorcing

Throughout my years of writing and mentoring women, I have seen a number of hugely popular Christian women getting divorced. They then often congratulate other popular female influencers on their divorce. They give reasons for the divorce and state they had “biblical reasons.” This seems all so wrong to me, and I will try to explain to you why. We should never be celebrating or trying to justify divorce to anyone. The reason God gave for divorce was due to…

The Epidemic of Shingles

The Epidemic of Shingles

For the first few weeks of December, I struggled with the pain of shingles. This caused me to research this painful disease. What I found out was shocking! Did you know the chicken pox mortality rate among children was only 0.00035%? Did you know that the chicken pox vaccination is associated with a shingles epidemic which is incredibly painful and can be long lasting for adults? I was talking with one woman recently and her father got shingles. His pain…

Celebrating Forty One Years of Marriage

Celebrating Forty One Years of Marriage

Today is our 41st anniversary! Forty one years with the same man. It’s a huge blessing in many, many ways. As many of you know, our first twenty years were rough. We argued a lot, thus we didn’t enjoy each other much, yet divorce was never an option for us. Once we married, we both knew it was for life. We determined from the get-go to be covenant keepers. We’ve raised four children together. Now, we are enjoying our married…
