Abandoned in the Love of Submission

Abandoned in the Love of Submission

This post was written by Steven Winkler from a comment on The Jezebel Profile. Lori – I am amazed at the wisdom of God in your post and your courage to share it. This is not a popular message but a critically needed one. There is an absolute crisis with troubled marriages in the Church because MOST Christian leaders are either ignorant or too afraid to embrace the truths you shared from scripture regarding the GOD ORDAINED roles for husbands…

An Epidemic of Christian Wives Divorcing

An Epidemic of Christian Wives Divorcing

Written By Ken Alexander It is heartbreaking each time I hear of a good Christian man being divorced by his Christian wife. It seems that there is an epidemic of Christian wives being dissatisfied in their marriages or being the cause of blowing up their marriages with selfishness. I venture to say that this blog has saved many marriages already and will continue to do so, Lord willing, as it gets to the heart of the disease of feminism and…

Number One Red Flag For Men

Number One Red Flag For Men

Recently, I listened to a man give red flags for men concerning women. According to him, the number one red flag that men should be aware of is a woman who doesn’t have a good relationship with her father or has an absent father due to divorce. I can agree with him on this one. No, it doesn’t mean that every woman who doesn’t have a good relationship with her father can’t have a great marriage but hear me out….

The Extinction of Honeymoon Babies

The Extinction of Honeymoon Babies

“I recently received a Christmas card from the most traditional Christian family I know in real life. As is typical of Christmas cards, it contained updates on each family member. I was saddened, though not surprised, to find that the card listed the professional accomplishments of each grown and married daughter, including progress on Master’s degrees. These women all married young and are still of childbearing age but none have any children, having chosen at least for the present to…

Clearing Up Some Misconceptions

Clearing Up Some Misconceptions

In the past few weeks, I have written two posts (here and here) about something that Mary Kassian wrote for The Gospel Coalition. She contacted me and sent me the following email. I was thankful she did and I was thankful to hear that she agrees with the way the Bible lays out Biblical Womanhood. We still may not agree completely on everything but for the sake of clarity and as “iron sharpens iron,” here is her email to me:…

Telling Young Women to Get Married and Have Children is Wrong?

Telling Young Women to Get Married and Have Children is Wrong?

Mary Kassian, in the post I shared last week, ended her article about complementarianism this way: “If you hear someone tell you that complementarity means you have to get married, have dozens of babies, be a stay-at-home housewife, clean toilets, completely forego a career, chuck your brain, tolerate abuse, watch Leave It to Beaver reruns, bury your gifts, deny your personality, and bobble-head nod ‘yes’ to everything men say, don’t believe her. That’s a straw (wo)man misrepresentation. It’s not complementarianism. I…

What I Would Tell This Girl

What I Would Tell This Girl

As many of you know who follow me on social media, our 39th wedding anniversary was on the 27th of this month. This picture was taken after we had changed out of our wedding clothes and just before we took off to begin our new lives together. As I look at this smiling couple, there are a few things I would like to tell this girl. The harder you try to change him, the worse your marriage will become. A…

He is the Patriarch of His Home

He is the Patriarch of His Home

She told me her DIL truly lives a submissive life towards her husband. Where he wants to live, she wants to live. What he wants to eat, she wants to eat. He is the patriarch of his family. She trusts his decisions. She doesn’t always have to give her opinion and suggestions, then argue to get her way. He leads. She follows. He is head over her. She is submissive and obedient to him. This is how it’s suppose to…

Developing Thicker Skin as a Newlywed

Developing Thicker Skin as a Newlywed

This is an email I received from a young woman named Sarah recently: “I am a young newlywed. I don’t have any older women in my life that can give me biblical advice. That’s why I’m writing to you and I hope that’s alright. Being married is all new to me and it’s not as easy as I thought it would be. I really did put hope in God  helping me but I keep failing. And having to live with…

Women Neglecting Their Husbands After Having Children

Women Neglecting Their Husbands After Having Children

A man wrote the following comment on my post yesterday about mothers believing they need time way from their children: “I don’t see how it’s possible for a woman to be a mother to numerous children (as you’ve trumpeted as a good thing, a blessing) and at the same time to be a help meet to her husband. I’ve known too many women, my wife included, that once they became mothers, they stopped being wives. They got matronly, unattractive, and…
