Leaving Behind Her Husband and Children

There’s an article in The Washington Post written by a woman in her 60s who shared her thoughts about being a wife and mother at home. “In Anne Tyler’s ‘Ladder of Years,’ Delia Grinstead, the 40-year-old protagonist, walks along the beach in her bathing suit with $500 tucked into her tote as she leaves behind her husband and three children. Reading this I wondered, ‘How could she do that? — Why would she do that?’ “Except it wasn’t a single…

How Wives Try to Control Their Husbands

How Wives Try to Control Their Husbands

In Genesis 3:16, we are told the consequences of sin that women would experience due to sin entering the world. One thing that would happen to them is that “…thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.” There is great disagreement what this actually means. Even the commentaries of old disagree about the interpretation. I believe it means that the woman’s desire will be to control her husband just as in Genesis 4:7, we are…

Fatherlessness is Destroying Our Country

Fatherlessness is Destroying Our Country

Yesterday, I tweeted this: “The fatherless shooters among us: Of the 27 deadliest mass shooters, 26 were fatherless. It’s NOT gun issue. It’s a ‘lack of fathers’ issue. Despite popular opinion, children need their fathers just as much as they need their mothers.’ One woman asked for the source of this quote. I posted the article for her. Here is an eye-opening comment from the article: “Indeed, there is a direct correlation between boys who grow up with absent fathers…

How to Be a Kind, Tenderhearted, and Forgiving Wife

Written by Ken and me Jesus taught a parable in Mathew 18 of a king who called to reckon his servant who owed him an enormous debt of perhaps up to a million dollars in today’s currency.

Called to Suffer

Called to Suffer

Many women don’t want to hear about having to suffer in a marriage. No, they believe no woman should suffer and if she’s suffering, she needs to get out of the marriage and divorce, but this isn’t scriptural.

Suffering causes us to keep our eyes on…

Many believe this to be so, but I do not. Even Christian men can disobey the Word of God! The Apostle Paul could have easily…

The Apostle Paul is saying that he wishes all could remain single as he is so they can preach the Gospel, BUT right before this verse, he…
