Fornication Leads to an Empty Life

Fornication Leads to an Empty Life

He’s wasted the early years of his life on fornicating and traveling and found that it all led to emptiness. He blames our hedonistic culture that doesn’t make women into wives and mothers but instead into feminists who give sex freely and have become sex objects for men. I don’t know anything about this man so please don’t write to tell me that he promotes something I am against. I am writing this post about this article because he has…

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Proverbs 31 woman was not a real person that once lived. She’s an example of a woman who the King’s mother told him to look for in a wife. There are no commands to us in Proverbs 31, but this woman is a good example for us in many ways. I am going to match the attributes of this woman to the commands given to us for today that are clearly spelled out in the New Testament so we…

Love and Kindness Can Win the Worst of Men

Love and Kindness Can Win the Worst of Men

“Suffering may be an unpopular way to know Christ. But many saints who have suffered the most will be the first to say that having God near was worth every tear” (John Piper). An older woman shared a story on my Facebook page of a woman she knew and how this woman had won her evil husband to Christ. No, it wasn’t a pretty story and the woman suffered greatly but it sure made women angry and offended with this…

Pastors, Please Teach Wifely Submission Biblically

Pastors, Please Teach Wifely Submission Biblically

Written By Ken Alexander Recently, I listened to a sermon on marriage by a well-known evangelical pastor as I was challenged by a friend that I had him wrong on his views of a Christian wife’s submission to her husband. I was so hopeful that he was right and that his pastor was not giving the same defensive and inaccurate message on wifely submission that is rampant in the churches. At first, the pastor did a good job emphasizing that…

Are You Raising Your Daughters to Want a Successful Career or Marriage?

Are You Raising Your Daughters to Want a Successful Career or Marriage?

Every Thursday, Dennis Prager has a “Happiness Hour” on his radio program. Yesterday, he asked if parents are raising their daughters to want to be married or have careers. He has asked many women this question through the years: “If you could choose to have a successful marriage or successful career, which one would you choose?” He said the women answer 50/50. One time he was talking to a pretty, young woman in her early thirties who was an up…

Living With a Pagan Husband

Living With a Pagan Husband

There are many Christian women who live with husbands who are not believers and it is difficult. This is why the only criteria for who we are to marry, according to the Lord, is that they be a believer. Life with an unbeliever is hard since everything a godly woman believes and the way she lives her life comes from the Lord and unbelievers don’t have this Rock upon which they have built their lives. God instructs women who are…

Daughters of Eve or Daughters of Sarah

Daughters of Eve or Daughters of Sarah

Would you consider yourself more of a daughter of Eve or a daughter of Sarah? Eve knew God’s will. She walked with Him in the cool of the Garden of Eden. When Satan came as a serpent to tempt her, she quoted what God had said to her and added a few words to His commands. (He never told her not to touch the fruit.) “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden,…

Are Submissive Wives Second Class Citizens?

Are Submissive Wives Second Class Citizens?

“It really makes me sad that the Bible says that women should obey their husbands. It’s like we’re second class citizens. It makes me feel like I wish I was never born. My husband is a good guy and I usually willingly obey him but what if he didn’t want me to to something that I feel is the right thing to do?” This was a comment I just received on one of my posts written long ago. Unfortunately, it’s…

Men Have Made It So We Think We Don’t Need Them

Men Have Made It So We Think We Don’t Need Them

If a woman wants a steak, she drives to the store in her car that men have invented and built, goes into the store (that men have built) with the money she has earned, and buys a steak. The steak was from a cow on a farm that most likely a man had run. Then a man slaughtered that cow and cut it up to ready it to be sold. Then a man drove the semi-truck to the store. Then…

God Never Promised a Convenient Marriage

God Never Promised a Convenient Marriage

On Saturday morning, I decided to go through the new comments on my old blog Always Learning and either approve or delete them. I seldom do this but I found one written by Pat on the post titled “Should Husbands Ever Discipline Their Wives” (and no, it’s not about domestic discipline, as many know today). It was so good that it was worthy of a post of its own! “It’s amazing to me after looking at all these old yet…
