I had no clue about being a godly wife when we got married. No one even counseled us beforehand. We had been dating for so long I think everyone at our church just said, "It's about time! Let's get these 2 married!" So, we just jumped right in. The only thing different for our marriage is that we were both Christians. But, that did not mean we had a godly marriage.
I'm not even sure I could have told you much about what scripture has to say on the subject of marriage. Or roles of husbands and wives. I probably had never read or paid attention to those verses much.
It's been 14 years this summer since we said, "I do" and boy have things changed! But most of the changes occured in the last few years. God has been very busy working on this family, which now includes 2 beautiful daughters. We have come a long way in understanding what scripture has to say about the family.
I intend to share what I'm learning on this blog. Maybe it will encourage other women to re-think what they have (or have NOT) been taught about being a family.
