Modern Women and Biblical Submission

Submission is such a dirty word in today’s society, isn’t it? It can bring to mind many negative connotations: slave, doormat, weak, inferior. The truth is that these associations came from society not the Bible.  As Christian women, we need to ensure that we can discern biblical truth from societal deception. Let’s look at what biblical […]

20. Go On An All Day Date With My Hubby & 28. Visit Grandfather Mountain and Walk on the Mile High Swinging Bridge(30 Before 30)

*Happy dance!* *Happy dance!*  I knocked out TWO of the tasks on my 30 Before 30 list in one fell swoop! Yesterday marked our seventh anniversary and since it fell on a Monday and Alec had to work, we decided to spend the day together on Sunday to celebrate.  This year was special because we […]

In Which Ordinary Circumstances Humble Me

Recently I stopped by a local consignment shop to drop off a few things and also to check to see if I had built up credit from clothes I had dropped off at the beginning of the season. The store worker informed me that I did indeed have a small amount of store credit saved […]

For Better or For Best

I have read many Christian books on marriage and on becoming a better wife, but few are more than psychological dribble with a few scriptures thrown in here and there for good measure.  Here is one that, in my opinion, shines out in the pack.  I had never heard of Gary Smalley until I read […]

Spiritual Warfare for Women

  Sometimes, we Christians “keep it safe.”  We talk about prayer requests (as long as it isn’t too personal), we talk about OTHERS and their needs, we talk about church ministries, we talk about what a great sermon our past or gave, but we don’t talk about what’s really real.  Our deepest, darkest struggles, our […]
