Day #1  

I have been married since 2000, a mother of four children, and a follower of Christ. I have learned a lot about the role of a wife in a marriage. My husband and I, as many newlywed couples, had an enormous amount of stress in our early years. In the beginning, it was hard.

Why was it so difficult to live with the man that I loved? Probably because of my life experience. Before I was married, I was a single mother of two...

Day #2 

One day, as suicidal thoughts were bombarding my mind, a woman came to my door and introduced me to her Savior, Jesus Christ. I responded that day, unlike my prior dismissals of God’s offer of grace. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. To be honest, I was not “submissive” to Him. Months after my conversion and confession of faith, I experienced the most amazing miracle in my life. My dead unborn child...

Day #3 

There was a "War Room" inside my house for years because I was still carrying the roots from my past. I couldn't understand my husband’s gentleness, sweetness, patience and kindness toward me. This made me more miserable and angry because I never experienced a man like that. I thought he must be a hypocrite. He confused me even more because he didn’t act “like a man.” He didn't fight back, use me, yell at me or abu...

Day #4

I felt as if I was carrying the whole house on top of my shoulders. The yoke was heavy. The moment came when I needed to choose "Life or death."

This time, I chose "Life!"

God called us to go to a bible college in Columbus, Ohio. Both of us were accepted, but did not have the money for our tuition. One day, the church in Ohio had a picnic. While my family was enjoying the picnic, I walked to the back of the building and...

Day #5

I learned to have (through the word of God) SUBMISSION AND RESPECT towards my husband. God gave us instructions to follow in our marriage. God’s principles and purposes are the ONLY way that marriage works.

Matthew 6:33

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

I started to seek first His kingdom. The more intimacy I had with the Lord, the more I learned to know H...

Day #6 

Ephesians 5:22

Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.

This changed me. I knew that if I honored God, then I needed to do what He says.

The Bible compares marriages with the second coming of Jesus (the groom) for His church (the bride) and the relationship between them. Honestly, I compare the state of my relationship with God with the state of my relationship with my husband.

-I was lost and...

Day #7

Genesis 1:1-2

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

After five days of creation, came the sixth day.

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness.

27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he cre...

Day #8

"I trust YOU, I just can’t trust some women."

Did you ever find yourself saying this to your husband? I did. Because of the woman that I was in my past, I was afraid that a woman like the old me would cross my husband’s path. I self-projected my former pre-Christian ambitions, desires, and sensual ways onto other woman. This caused FEAR!

The reality is the world is full of women that live by the acts of the flesh; sexual i...

Day #9

Ephesians 5:21-33

Instructions for Christian Households

Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

22 Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord.

Notice that the word doesn’t say, “Submit to your husband….only if he is good to you….. Or if he helps you around the house...etc., etc."

If your husband for any reason does not follow the instructions that God gave him as a husband, that’s b...

Day #10 

I have to admit that I married a man that’s totally different than me. In the beginning of our marriage, it was annoying. I couldn’t understand him, but now I admire and learn from him.

After the wedding ceremony, I started to know the real man that I married. The emotion and the butterflies in my belly left because reality showed up. What at first was funny, was not funny anymore! “I ARRIVED” to this institutio...
