True Woman: I'm a Better Leader
At one particularly difficult time during our marriage, my husband threw up his hands in exasperation and said, “I tell you what we’re going to do! From now on you do what you want to do and I’ll do what I want to do. I’m not going to keep going back and forth with you about who’s going to lead this family!”

True Woman: When HE Gets It Right
One of the strongest objections I’ve heard over the years from wives goes something like this: “He’s not right! He doesn’t love me like Christ loved the church. Why would I submit to him? When he gets his act together, I’ll think about it.”

True Woman: My Submission Journey
For the most part, George and I had much in common. However, his ideas about roles within marriage were diametrically opposed to mine.

I have a Savior like that. There are plenty of people who have no time for Jesus, no interest in Him, who have basically blown Him off. There are even people who consider Jesus something we used to believe in, something needed only be weak people. And in most workplaces and schools, you can hear Jesus' name used as a swear word most every day. Oh yes, His name has been trampled on.

And what do smart sheep do? Try to figure out where they're going to find some good pasture...or try to figure out which road is safe and which one is dangerous...or move in the direction that looks best to them? Nope. They do what my wife did traveling in that unfamiliar territory out West. They quit trying to figure it out for themselves and follow the One who knows every mile of the road!
