I Sinned Against My Husband Part 1

I sinned against my husband. Maybe you have too? It was a normal Saturday morning, and I got up to make breakfast. In my heart, I wasn't doing it because I wanted to. I had hungry children.

In Luke 15, we come to the story of the prodigal [...]

HelpMeet Training 101: REAL MEN DON’T WEAR PINK

As wives we are designed and chosen by God to complement our husbands.  As you know, this doesn't come naturally... it's a choice.  It's a choice that comes with a fight.  Women have a long history of battling a desire for control and leadership over man in general, but this temptation is strongest and most readily present in marriage.
