Why are So Many Women Not Getting Married?

Why are So Many Women Not Getting Married?

Marriage is becoming less and less popular. Many women are grieving the fact that they never married in their 20s, because they put it off for higher education and careers. They thought they would get married in their 30s and begin having children, but it’s not happening. In pondering this, I am coming to some conclusions of my own why this is happening. When I went to college beginning in 1976, going to college wasn’t that big of a deal….

The Great Cost of Fornication and the Beauty of Virginity

The Great Cost of Fornication and the Beauty of Virginity

Virginity isn’t popular in our culture, no, not even among Christians. Contrary to popular opinion, God takes it seriously and warns us strongly against the sin of fornication (sex outside of marriage consisting of a husband and his wife). Remember, He destroyed two cities due to fornication. Then in Revelation, we are told about the “great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication” (Revelation 19:2). Fornication corrupts. All of His commands to us are for our good; they…

He Won’t Take Out the Trash!

He Won’t Take Out the Trash!

“I’m from the South and it’s almost as if women are trained to henpeck their husbands. I was taught this by my mother, grandmother, and aunt, by example. I don’t know why this happens because it not only makes the men feel depressed, it also depresses the women. I try not to do that; however, I don’t know how to get things across without henpecking. For example, my husband will never take out the trash unless I ask him. And…

Why is Overeating Off Limits in a Wife’s Submission to Her Husband?

Why is Overeating Off Limits in a Wife’s Submission to Her Husband?

How would you respond if your husband one day looked at you and said, “You’re eating too much. You need to lose weight” Most women would be highly offended and angry with their husbands. Some would even tell him that it’s none of their business and they shouldn’t ask them to do this. Then they would go to their friends and tell them how unreasonable their husbands are. Is this the godly wife’s response? No. A godly wife would tell…

Become Lifelong Students of Your Husbands

Become Lifelong Students of Your Husbands

Once in a while, a wise man or a woman will make an incredible comment on one of my posts which deserve a post of their own and this is one of them. This comment from “Mother Dearest” is from my post Many Women Seem to Enjoy Tearing Down Other Women’s Marriages. Enjoy! Today’s unregenerate woman is a clamorous glory-hog that cannot imagine enduring a moment of only being seen and not heard. This busy body gads abroad on social…

Receiving Many Uplifting, Inspiring Comments!

Many of you see the many cruel comments that I receive daily, but I want you all to know that I receive MANY wonderful and inspiring comments on a daily basis, too, like this one! “Hi there, I am not comfortable posting publicly, but I want you know in the midst of all the criticism, you have been a steady guide back to Jesus for me.

Many Women Seem to Enjoy Tearing Down Other Women’s Marriages

Why do many women seem so ready and willing to tell other women what their husbands are doing wrong, thus trying to tear their marriage apart? Why aren’t women more willing to encourage women in their marriages and build them up instead? On a post a few weeks ago, a woman made the following comment: “My husband likes to have a quiet dinner where he can discuss his day, etc. in a relaxed atmosphere without interruptions due to people talking…

“Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got”

“Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got”

The other day, Dennis Prager played a clip of this song from 1972. It’s called “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I’ve Got” and sung by the Four Tops. I listened to it when I was in high school and loved it! (Listen to it. You’ll like it, too!) It made me think how many men would absolutely LOVE to have a woman like this one. She doesn’t ask for things, no, not even diamond rings and it doesn’t take…

Virtuous or Rottenness in His Bones?

Virtuous or Rottenness in His Bones?

“A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones” (Proverbs 12:4). Whenever I read verses specifically directed towards women, I want to study them. I want to understand them and remember them to either aspire to be like them (the positive traits) or not be like them (the negative traits). We forget so easily and this is why we need to be in the Word daily. I read the…

Your Husband’s Sexuality is a Gift From God to You

Your Husband’s Sexuality is a Gift From God to You

This is a comment that is full of wisdom left on my post She Would Give Anything to Be Desired By Her Husband. There is a lie that has gone out into the world, from the very depths of hell. It tells women that to be chaste whilst single is stifling but sex in marriage is boring. It fits in neatly with the larger feminist message that for a woman to be under the authority of her own husband is…
