It is good to be back. After completing the 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife series, I very much needed a little break, but I now feel refreshed and ready to get back in the swing of things here at Getting Real and Drawing Near. After doing a quick evaluation of what has been happening with this blog over the last few months, it … Continue reading Act Like Men or Act Like Christ?
Welcome to Day 31 of our 31 day journey to becoming better wives. Hip-hip-hooray! I intended to end this study with a letter to my daughters with all the things I would want them to know about being Godly wives, but after writing Missy’s 10 Commandments, I think I would just be repeating myself. Therefore, I will be going a different route. If you take … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 31: That’s All Folks!
Okay, it has been brought to my attention that some may be feeling a little frustrated regarding my seemingly flippant attitude in reference to men who do not hold up their end of the bargain. Ladies, please understand that it is not that I don’t care or understand. Trust me, I do understand seeing as I don’t have a perfect husband; however, I think you … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Bonus Day
I thought this would be a fun way to kind of showcase the highlights of our 31 Day study. Don’t take it too serious. Missy’s Ten Commandments for Godly Wives: 1. Thou shall accept God’s word as absolute truth; 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJ): 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 30: Missy’s 10 Commandments for Godly Wives
Some of you have been waiting for this post since the beginning of the study. I have received many messages regarding this issue and today we will finally get to discuss the roles of men in marriage. I thought and prayed for a long time before I ever decided to address this issue. I was hesitant because I do not feel called to lead men … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 29: The Roles of Men
Welcome to the last week of our 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife series! By Thursday we should all be perfect wives, right? Okay, maybe not perfect, but a whole lot better than we used to be anyway. On Saturday, I asked you all to go back and review your marriage vows (if it was possible). Were any of you surprised by those vows? … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 28: There’s A Little Bit of Something of Me in Everything in You
For all you married folk, do you remember your marriage vows? I am serious, do you actually remember the words you said and the promises you made? I thought I knew, but when I got out our marriage DVD, I found I was a little off the mark. Looking back, I don’t think I really understood my marriage vows or the real implications of what … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 26: I Promise To…
Have you noticed how Christianity is getting a bad rap today? It seems everyone is tolerant of everyone’s beliefs expect Christians’ beliefs. This screams foul to me. It makes me angry. I am not angry just over the ridicule Christians face, but because the younger generations are buying into this propaganda and being led astray, away from the church and away from Christ. So, what … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 25: Divorce-An Acceptable Sin?
Let Our Men Be Men-Wow, what a title, huh? Now that title may have some of you scratching your heads while a great many of you think you may know what I am talking about. If I heard a title like this, I would think the author was talking about how women often emasculate men. This is true; however, I have already talked about respecting … Continue reading 31 Days to Becoming a Better Wife: Day 24: Let Our Men Be Men
Welcome to day 23 of our 31 day journey to becoming better wives! I can’t believe we are nearing the end and I still have so much to say!
