Have you ever felt like the Proverbs 31 woman is so unattainable that you have given up trying? What does it really mean to “Respect my Husband?” What does it look like to be a helpmate?
I think the quick answer to all these questions is: Continue to date your spouse! Never stop learning and asking questions. Nate and I have been married over 11 years and I am still learning new things about him. For example, when he is retired he wants to be a crossing guard at a school and get to know the kids and a waiter at a fancy restaurant. Who knew?!?
Over the years we have purposefully dedicated time on a regular basis to talk about our relationship: How we are doing? What would we change? What could we do better? What do we need to work on? What is bothering us? What are we doing right and should make sure we continue to do?
You may be saying, “Sounds good, but how do I get started?” Well, I am a firm believer of Titus 2. I have surrounded myself with Godly mentors that have helped me become more like the wife that I want to be. They have taught me how to honestly respect my husband, lovingly meet his needs, and joyfully fulfill the tasks God has purposed for me to do. I am excited to share all that I have learned from them to challenge you to take your marriage to the next level!
Our goal with this blog is to show you practical ways to continue to work on and improve your marriage. We don’t want marriages to just survive; we want them to thrive and be a light in this broken world.
These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God. Titus 2:4-5 NLT
