Beginning in January 2011, I decided to give this blog a direction, a target if you will. That direction has turned out to be marriage and what women can do individually to be the best wives we can be to the husbands God has given us. In order to hit the target and stay on topic, most of my marriage posts will be directed specifically to our responsibility as wives.
I cannot, nor do I believe I should attempt, to give directions to husbands on how to love their wives. There are men much better equipped to do that. My laser-like focus is not meant to imply that all husbands are saints and all wives are shrews. The very idea is absurd and I will not set aside space in every post to issue caveats for wives of abusive or unkind men. This is a blog, not a counselor’s office. I am only interested in sharing the lessons I have learned in an attempt to be a blessing to other women.
If your husband is abusive or unfaithful, you should seek help from someone qualified to counsel couples in such situations. if you believe you are at risk of bodily or life threatening injury, find a safe place.
The default position on this site is that most women are married to loving, reasonable husbands. The goal is for each of us to grow into wives and women that will be pleasing to God and our husbands.
The comment policy here is simple: Keep it cordial, no profanity, and no name calling of other commenters . I am not big on censoring expression of thought, and will allow a wide latitude of thoughts and expression. I am sincerely interested in opposing points of view, but I request that you dissect ideas without demeaning people. Insults will not be tolerated.
