Why are So Many Women Not Getting Married?

Why are So Many Women Not Getting Married?

Marriage is becoming less and less popular. Many women are grieving the fact that they never married in their 20s, because they put it off for higher education and careers. They thought they would get married in their 30s and begin having children, but it’s not happening. In pondering this, I am coming to some conclusions of my own why this is happening. When I went to college beginning in 1976, going to college wasn’t that big of a deal….

Women Who Seek After Wisdom

Women Who Seek After Wisdom

“Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.” (Proverbs 24:3, 4) We are told that a wise woman builds up her home and a foolish one plucks it down with their own hands. How do we build our homes up? We must be women who seek after wisdom. Where is wisdom to be found? God is the source of all wisdom, so…

Whose Job is it to Teach Children About Being Chaste?

Whose Job is it to Teach Children About Being Chaste?

My husband and I discovered that many women claimed to have been hurt by the “purity culture” after our post on this topic, but it seems they were hurt more from their sin and then looked for someone or something to blame it on. We live in a victim culture that never seems to want to place the blame for their sin on themselves. The entire “purity culture” grew out of a deep void that was lacking in the youth….

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

“A woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house” (Proverbs 7:10,11). Unfortunately, these verses describe too many women today – an adulteress, a whore, or a “strange” or “evil” woman, as the Bible calls them and are completely opposite to what God calls women to be. She dresses with the “attire of a harlot.” Gill’s Exposition: “She dresses with showy gaudy garments; the word signifies…

The Great Cost of Fornication and the Beauty of Virginity

The Great Cost of Fornication and the Beauty of Virginity

Virginity isn’t popular in our culture, no, not even among Christians. Contrary to popular opinion, God takes it seriously and warns us strongly against the sin of fornication (sex outside of marriage consisting of a husband and his wife). Remember, He destroyed two cities due to fornication. Then in Revelation, we are told about the “great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication” (Revelation 19:2). Fornication corrupts. All of His commands to us are for our good; they…

He Won’t Take Out the Trash!

He Won’t Take Out the Trash!

“I’m from the South and it’s almost as if women are trained to henpeck their husbands. I was taught this by my mother, grandmother, and aunt, by example. I don’t know why this happens because it not only makes the men feel depressed, it also depresses the women. I try not to do that; however, I don’t know how to get things across without henpecking. For example, my husband will never take out the trash unless I ask him. And…

A Recovering Career Woman

A Recovering Career Woman

The following post is from a comment made by Dana on my post “They Want Me to Stop Teaching Women to Be Keepers at Home.” This topic is near and dear to my heart. Because I refer to myself as a “recovering career woman.” I say “recovering” because much like the recovering addict, I was addicted to my career. I was addicted to my title, influence, money, nice clothes, and yes, the corner office. But when I became a Christian,…

Was the Purity Culture Harmful and Dangerous?

Was the Purity Culture Harmful and Dangerous?

Written by My Husband, Ken, and Me There’s an article in the New York Times called, “How Should Christians Have Sex?” In it, the Christian author, Katelyn Beaty, tries to explain why the purity culture was harmful and dangerous. She was taught abstinence until marriage and signed a pledge that she would wait for sex until her wedding night. There were purity rings, purity balls, and even journals in which she wrote letters to her future husband. She feels that…

Why is Overeating Off Limits in a Wife’s Submission to Her Husband?

Why is Overeating Off Limits in a Wife’s Submission to Her Husband?

How would you respond if your husband one day looked at you and said, “You’re eating too much. You need to lose weight” Most women would be highly offended and angry with their husbands. Some would even tell him that it’s none of their business and they shouldn’t ask them to do this. Then they would go to their friends and tell them how unreasonable their husbands are. Is this the godly wife’s response? No. A godly wife would tell…

They Want Me to Stop Teaching Women to Be Keepers at Home

They Want Me to Stop Teaching Women to Be Keepers at Home

Women simply want me to stop teaching women to be keepers at home. They bring up all of the exceptions. They bring up all of the “What ifs…?” They bring up all of the career women in the Bible who left their homes all day, five days a week, worked for a boss, and left their children in the care of others. (There were none.) They will bring up how much money the Proverbs 31 woman made and she just…
