    As a wife, which comes first, house holding or seeking God?..

    Nicely said and I think it's true the other way around too. When our husbands make us happy, they make God happy as well. We have that basic duty to each other even if we have different roles in the home.

    Epidemic of childless and miserable 40+ women

    Yes! It's really in those moments when you are just absolutely exhausted from chasing a 3 year old while trying to stay on a newborn's feeding schedule that you can be tempted to be jealous. Those are truly long days, weeks, and months that probably only stay at home mom can truly understand...

    Pronoun Change as Christian?

    I will never be able to fully understand why anyone would want to change their pronouns because it just seems so confusing. But in my mind, I think it is much more Christian to use traditional gender pronouns simply because Genesis makes is extremely clear that God created two different genders...

    “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” are Surprised...

    But the problem is that the "radical portions" you mentioned are too important to ignore. Even if a state congressman says he is absolutely against abortion, I feel like just having him in office gives more strength to the whole democrat party that has these radical agendas. Abortion is just too...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    I wouldn't assume most people have perfect marriages. Even in really good Christian marriages, things can get tough at times. Parents usually try their best to shield their kids from things too, so you will never know everything your parents have gone through. I think I have a good marriage...

    Epidemic of childless and miserable 40+ women

    I want to put a "like" on every paragraph in this post! So well said. I was blessed to have kids fairly early in my marriage and blessed to have avoided this kind of judgment, but I have seen first hand how devastating it can be for a close friend of mine in the church who isn't able to have...

    Epidemic of childless and miserable 40+ women

    I'm not sure if it helps, but as a woman I can tell you that I definitely do not think men peak in their 20s! I'm not sure if you mean physically or what, but I honestly think men "age" a lot more easily than we do. Older, wiser, more established men are attractive to me. For the record I'm...

    parents stay together just for kids- what to do as the kid?

    I'm so sorry to hear this, and I can't imagine how hard it is for you. I totally agree with Blackpowderduelist. Please know that it is not about you or anything you did and they are doing what they are doing because they love you more than you can possibly imagine. If you end up being a parent...

    California set to ban separate toy aisles for boys and girls

    If it was that simple, I would agree. But I don't think this is about letting boys play with girl's toys or vice versa. It's just another step toward making kids think there is no concept of "male" or "female" like the crazies who think gender is a social construct. That's what these crazy...

    “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” are Surprised...

    I guess it's possible for an individual democrat to be pro life, but the whole party seems against it. It's probably the single most important issue to me.

    “Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden” are Surprised...

    I wouldn't trust anything they do. How can you be pro-life and be for Biden? This is one thing that there is absolutely no middle ground for me on. I will never understand how someone can be pro life and ever vote for a democrat.

    Friendships with People with Opposite Political Views

    I feel like racism is encouraged today by people who claim to fight it. Everyone has to be labeled by their color first. I don't remember this from my childhood or earlier before the 2010s. I don't think this is what MLK wanted either. It is even the same with gender. As a white woman I feel...

    How is loneliness while single different from loneliness in marriage?

    Another important thing for married couples... even if you have a great relationship with your spouse, it's still good to have friends outside of marriage. Wives need time to spend with their girlfriends and husbands need time to spend with their friends. I also think it's good for couples to...

    Are WOMEN Pastors Biblical??

    Well if you men were boys, your moms would be sending you to your rooms for being so ugly to each other.

    Earthquakes are so scary. You have no idea when it's about to happen. I pray everyone is safe.

    Are WOMEN Pastors Biblical??

    I am at peace with what the Bible says about only men being pastors, and I think Paul's statement in 1 Timothy further supports this. I have no issue with this personally. In practical terms, where I struggle is defining "man" in terms of when does a boy become a man in the church? The reason is...

    Female Disciples?!!

    It does sound like they mixed up "disciples" and "Apostles." I surely hope there were at least 12 female disciples and many more! But I agree the 12 Apostles were all male according to the Bible. I'm sure there were untold numbers of disciples (followers of Christ) of both genders just as there...
