Women Leaving Their Posts

Women Leaving Their Posts

Many women disagreed with me on my post about Popular Female Influencers Divorcing. I knew they would. It’s not popular to ever question a woman who is divorcing her husband even when she has “biblical” reasons. I had my reasons for doing so. A woman in the chat room who was a young and popular blogger shared the following. She explains my reasons perfectly. “When women leave their posts (their calling as wife and mother) and pursue building something else…

Popular Female Christian Influencers Divorcing

Popular Female Christian Influencers Divorcing

Throughout my years of writing and mentoring women, I have seen a number of hugely popular Christian women getting divorced. They then often congratulate other popular female influencers on their divorce. They give reasons for the divorce and state they had “biblical reasons.” This seems all so wrong to me, and I will try to explain to you why. We should never be celebrating or trying to justify divorce to anyone. The reason God gave for divorce was due to…

The Epidemic of Shingles

The Epidemic of Shingles

For the first few weeks of December, I struggled with the pain of shingles. This caused me to research this painful disease. What I found out was shocking! Did you know the chicken pox mortality rate among children was only 0.00035%? Did you know that the chicken pox vaccination is associated with a shingles epidemic which is incredibly painful and can be long lasting for adults? I was talking with one woman recently and her father got shingles. His pain…

Celebrating Forty One Years of Marriage

Celebrating Forty One Years of Marriage

Today is our 41st anniversary! Forty one years with the same man. It’s a huge blessing in many, many ways. As many of you know, our first twenty years were rough. We argued a lot, thus we didn’t enjoy each other much, yet divorce was never an option for us. Once we married, we both knew it was for life. We determined from the get-go to be covenant keepers. We’ve raised four children together. Now, we are enjoying our married…

What Can Women Do in the Church?

What Can Women Do in the Church?

Written By Pastor Joseph Spurgeon A FB friend recently commented that they only hear about what women can’t do in church then what they can do. Here is my response: The Bible has both prohibitions and affirmations. The negatives – I do not permit a woman to speak or exercise authority- actually serve several purposes. One, they protect the God-created order for family, civil, and ecclesiastical life. Two, they protect the woman. Three, they enable men and women to do…

Many “Complementarians” are Disobeying Titus 2:3-5

Many “Complementarians” are Disobeying Titus 2:3-5

Written By Pastor Joel Webbon, Right Response Ministries Let me to begin by saying this: “ALL of Scripture has relevant application for ALL of life.” That being said, allow me to flesh out that statement a bit: 1 Peter 3:1-6 and 1 Timothy 2:9-15 are two biblical texts that explicitly speak to women. So a woman could certainly exposit these texts and apply them accordingly. This, of course, assumes that the audience being taught does not have men present (“older…

Worried About Being Bored at Home

Worried About Being Bored at Home

Many women seem to be worried about being bored at home, so they stay in the workforce. I was in the workforce before going home full time. I often was bored in the workforce. It consisted of doing the same things over and over, yet I was in a place far away from my baby and my home. I would far rather be bored in my own home with my children by my side. Boredom is WAY overrated, women. It’s…

Having a Great Relationship With Your Teenagers

Having a Great Relationship With Your Teenagers

“I recall that you mentioned having a great relationship with your children as teenagers. Our oldest will be 13 this year, and I want nothing more than harmonious, lifelong relationships with our children. I refuse to accept the ‘teenagers must hate their parents narrative.’ I also don’t want my children to do a complete 180 as soon as they move out. Can you please do a post about that? I’d really appreciate it and unfortunately, this just isn’t talked about….

Men Taking Their Wives’ Last Names

Men Taking Their Wives’ Last Names

“The joy and ‘uncomfortable conversations’ behind the decision of a growing number of men to throw off the shackles of an ‘archaic’ marital tradition.” This from an article called Meet the Australian men taking their wife’s surname. So instead of taking her husband’s last name, he is taking his wife’s father’s last name. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it? Not at all. When a couple marries, they become one flesh and the husband is the head of his wife. Therefore, the…

How a Husband Should Love His Wife

How a Husband Should Love His Wife

Whenever I teach women to submit to their husbands, without fail, some will bring up that husbands are to love their wives as Christ loves the Church. What many women believe this to mean is that husbands are to do whatever they can to make their wives happy. You know, “Happy wife, happy life.” They are to chase their emotions and feelings and try to satisfy their every need. Guess what? This is NOT how Christ loves the Church, contrary…
