Husbands Create the Wives They Have?

Husbands Create the Wives They Have?

A woman wrote, “If a husband ever says, ‘You’re not submitting!’ I would say, ‘Bad leadership!’ The husband always initiates! If he is loving her to death, I promise he will have a submissive wife. Husbands create the wife they have. If you’re mean and angry all the time, that’s what she will become. You’re the leader. If you speak tenderly and serve her, she will be your reward. Serving and honoring you.” Did she speak the truth? Where in…

Career Grandmothers Make Young Mothers’ Lives Harder

Career Grandmothers Make Young Mothers’ Lives Harder

You are probably asking, “How in the world do career grandmothers make young mothers’ lives harder?” I will tell you. Many people will encourage older women that after their children are grown, they are free to do as they please. They can finally do something for themselves! They can go back to college, pursue careers, travel, or do whatever they want but is this God’s will for them? In 1 Timothy 5:10, we are told what older widows (those over…

Training Your Children to Obey

Training Your Children to Obey

Training children in the way they should go is not an easy task. It takes a full-time mother who is willing to sacrifice her time and energy for her children. It is not for the selfish or the me-centered. A mother must be intentional about how she is raising her children. I have seen too many mothers fail to teach their children to obey them when they were young and these children grow up to bring their mothers great heartache…

Women Prefer Men Who Aren’t Porn Addicts

Women Prefer Men Who Aren’t Porn Addicts

On Friday, a young women privately messaged me on Instagram and shared with me that she had only been married a few years, yet her husband is deeply addicted to pornography. It has been devastating on her marriage so she asked for my advice. I immediately decided that I needed to write out a post warning young women to not marry porn addicts. We’ve seen too much devastation in marriages with this addiction. Here is the post that I wrote:…

Playing Russian Roulette With Your Children

Playing Russian Roulette With Your Children

For some reason, the goal of higher education and having a career never appealed to me when I was young even though I attended public schools most of my childhood. When the other girls were talking about what they wanted to be when they grew up, all I could think about was wanting to be a wife and a mother. I did attend college, however, because this is what young women were and are supposed to do. I attended a…

The Proverbs 31 Woman is Not the Doctrines of Womanhood

The Proverbs 31 Woman is Not the Doctrines of Womanhood

For International Women’s Day, Dale Partridge put up the following post on his Instagram account: These qualities of a godly woman are great and supported biblically but many women were up in arms over it and took him to task. One woman named Rachel wrote, “This image of a biblical woman isn’t incorrect, it’s simply incomplete. Where is the Proverbs 31 description of a woman who is a busy, independent, entrepreneurial, respected leader in her home and community? Cherry picking…

Mommy Blogs Doing More Harm Than Good?

Mommy Blogs Doing More Harm Than Good?

From Raising Godly Children Christian Moms, if you’re more influenced by “mommy blogs” than your husband and/or pastor, that’s an issue. If you spend more time reading “mommy blogs” than studying your Bible, that’s an issue. These Christian “mommy blogs” are having an enormous influence in the American Evangelical Church and I think they’ve done more harm than good to be honest. Christian moms are running to these blogs, social groups, Facebook pages, etc. when they should be running to…

No, Wives Do Not Have to Submit to Evil

No, Wives Do Not Have to Submit to Evil

We have had a few men through the years who want me to teach that wives should submit to their husbands in everything, yes, even if husbands ask their wives to do evil. They feel that I need to repent since I don’t teach women this. I don’t believe women should submit to physical abuse nor to anything evil the husband asks her to do. Yesterday, two men took me to task on this very topic since I listed a…

He Wants the Children Vaccinated. She Doesn’t.

He Wants the Children Vaccinated. She Doesn’t.

What do women do who are completely against vaccinating their children but their husbands want their children to be vaccinated? They believe that vaccines contain aborted babies and can cause harm to their children. They are even afraid that their children could die from them since some have. Can they disobey their husbands’ will in this circumstance? Are the husbands asking their wives to sin? (Yes, some believe that vaccinating children is sinful.) I asked the women in the chat…

Modesty and Beauty Should Go Together

Modesty and Beauty Should Go Together

Written By Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies Modesty and beauty should go together. Both enhance one another. Modesty does not have to be old-fashioned and drab. There are some dear Christian women who feel they must wear plain and drab clothes to be modest. But we don’t find this anywhere in the Bible. Far from the truth. The Proverbs 31 woman was dressed beautifully in “fine linen and purple.” When Sarah went down to Egypt, the Pharaoh of Egypt noticed…
