Romance Novels Destroy True Love

Romance Novels Destroy True Love

Written By Amber Haring I love to read! And yesterday while I was perusing the book section at Target (read- throwing five books at a time into my cart), I noticed the huge section of romance novels. And right next to them was a section on loving yourself and the self-help section and it got me reminiscing on old habits and life lessons. I used to read romance novels all the time! I loved them! In fact, one summer I…

Young Women Need to Pursue Godly Femininity

Young Women Need to Pursue Godly Femininity

Many men no longer want to get married. There are few virtuous women who want to be help meets for their husbands anymore. There are few women who want to have children and be the ones home raising them. There are few who are covenantkeepers and understand that love and marriage are commitments and have nothing whatsoever to do with emotions and feelings. (Don’t believe me? Read 1 Corinthians 13 and God’s definition of love.) I can see it in…

Are Physical and Verbal Abuse the Same?

Here is an excerpt from an excellent book written in 1990 entitled Liberated Through Submission: God’s Design for Freedom in All Relationships By P.B. Wilson. A person asked, “My husband has never hit me, but he is verbally abusive. Don’t you think it’s the same thing? Answer: “I have been present when husbands and wives verbally abuse one another, and some of the sharpest knives could not compete with the damage of the tongue. However, I do believe verbal and physical…

He Loved Their Mother Fiercely

He Loved Their Mother Fiercely

George W. Bush said the biggest impression that his father left on his life is that his father loved his mother fiercely and was deeply dedicated to her.

Pursue a Spouse, Not a Career

Pursue a Spouse, Not a Career

Preached By John MacArthur Now there are some people who have a gift for singleness that means a spiritual–unique spiritual capacity to remain single for the purpose of serving the Lord. Unless you have that gift and it’s clearly defined for you, then you need to be married. I don’t need to remind you that in biblical times people were married by the time they were fifteen or sixteen. Some of you are way overdue. Get married. Many of you…

Being Jesus to Her Husband

Being Jesus to Her Husband

TheJoyFilledWife won her husband from his deep addiction to pornography by being Jesus to him. “Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously” (1 Peter 2:23). Many wives have no desire to be Jesus to their husbands but TheJoyFilledWife reaped beautiful fruit because of her obedience and faithfulness to the Lord. On Saturday, the day after I published her post When His Life is Out of…

Warning to Twenty Year Old Women

Warning to Twenty Year Old Women

For many years, Dennis Prager, a Jewish man with a lot of wisdom, has had a male/female hour on his radio program in which he discusses things relating to males and females. It’s very good and he’s very open about a man’s sexual nature and a woman’s emotional nature. I called one Wednesday and talked to him on the radio last year during this hour. After talking with me, he wanted the address of my blog! Anyways, here’s a GREAT…

The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

A song called I’ve Never Been to Me was written in 1977 but didn’t become popular until 1982. I remember listening to it when I was young but never paid much attention to the words. Ken randomly began singing this song on our walk the other day and told me how much he loved it when he was a teenager so we listened to the song. When Charlene sang the paragraph that I highlighted in bold below, tears sprung to my…

When His Life is Out of Control

When His Life is Out of Control

It’s almost impossible to find one who will teach the hard truths to the husband and the wife but the one they…
