He Wants More Than One Wife

He Wants More Than One Wife

A woman wrote me and told me her husband wants more wives. He is searching for more wives but with specific qualifications. None of the women so far want to adhere to his qualifications, thankfully. I encouraged her to keep praying that God would thwart his agenda. God allowed polygamy in the Bible but it wasn’t His ordained will just as He allowed slavery due to sin. He also allowed Hitler to be the chancellor of Germany who murdered millions…

Love is a Verb NOT a Feeling

Love is a Verb NOT a Feeling

In raising our children, we were diligent to teach them to be guided by Truth rather than by their emotions and feelings. We taught them to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ and renew their minds daily with Truth, God’s Word. This is the single most important thing you need to teach your children after training them to obey you. Timothy Allen has been commenting on my Facebook lately. I recently shared one of his comments on…

Women Were Created to Help Their Husbands Steward the World

Women Were Created to Help Their Husbands Steward the World

Written By Timothy Allen What most miss – particularly Christians, is that God created the Earth and created a Garden and placed Adam in it to tend to it. Adam had EVERYTHING HE NEEDED to do those tasks all by himself. The Bible says that God brought the animals to Adam to be named. He did this – it no doubt took quite some time. Adam was alone on the Earth for quite some time – and he was equipped…

Dating Intentionally for Marriage

Dating Intentionally for Marriage

A woman asked me recently about writing a book for singles. “What about a book how to date for singles? The dos and don’ts in terms of dating for marriage for women, for what to look for in a man, topics to talk about to determine if we have compatible values, prayer examples for discernment, guidance, heartbreak, etc. There’s a lot on how to be a good Christian wife, but not a lot of information for single Christian women wanting…

The Testimonies of Transformed Wives

The Testimonies of Transformed Wives

Recently, I was sent this email from a Pastor: Lori, I very much appreciate all that you do to help women understand proper biblical gender roles. Teaching biblical gender roles is also a big part of my preaching ministry. In my preaching and teaching on this subject, I find it is the women who have the hardest time accepting what the Bible says. I had an idea that may help women in this area. I do not know if you…

When the Family Shall No Longer Have a Head

When the Family Shall No Longer Have a Head

“When the family shall no longer have a head, and the great foundation for the subjection of children in the mother’s example is gone; when the mother shall have found another sphere than her home for her energies; when she shall have exchanged the sweet charities of domestic love and sympathy for the fierce passions of the hustings [political campaigning]; when families shall be disrupted at the caprice [impulse] of either party, and the children scattered as foundlings[abandoned infant] from…

Marriage Advice For Young Ladies From a Suffragette 1918

Marriage Advice For Young Ladies From a Suffragette 1918

ADVICE ON MARRIAGE TO YOUNG LADIES Do not marry at all. But if you must avoid the Beauty Men, Flirts, and the Bounders, Tailor’s Dummies, and the Football Enthusiasts. Look for a Strong, Tame Man, a Fire-lighter, Coal-getting, Window Cleaner, and Yard Swiller. Don’t except too much, most men are lazy, selfish, thoughtless, lying, drunken, clumsy, heavy-footer, rough, unmanly brutes, and need taming. All Bachelors are, and many are worse still. If you want him to be happy, Feed the…

The 10 Commandments For Wives

The 10 Commandments For Wives

Shared By Lindsay Harold on her Facebook page Here’s a rather humorous and helpful list of tips for wives from the 1970’s, published in the Dear Abby column. This was mainstream advice back in the day but utterly taboo today. I only came across them because I saw someone, with a rather large internet following and a ministry specifically geared toward Christian married women, saying some of these made her nauseous. That makes no sense as these are very sensible…

Godly Women are Submissive and Home is Their Priority

Godly Women are Submissive and Home is Their Priority

The other night, I listened to the greatest sermon on biblical womanhood that I have ever listened to by Pastor Voddie Baucham. He gave it nine years ago, and it is so powerful! He first exhorted young men to only marry a woman who is submissive. “She must be submissive. Period.” He taught that submission is about order, not value. Men and women have different functions and roles. However, submission is voluntary. A husband can’t arm wrestle his wife into…

Husbands are NEVER Commanded to Submit to Their Wives

Husbands are NEVER Commanded to Submit to Their Wives

Every institution on this planet has a leader, a boss. Marriage is no different. Two heads create a monster. A husband is head of his wife, and the wife is commanded to live in submission to her husband. It’s God’s perfectly ordained order for marriage, but many rebel against this. They use Ephesians 5:21 to say a husband is commanded to submit to his wife. This isn’t biblical. I will take you through the Bible in order to prove to…
