A Submissive Wife's Journey

Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Colossians 3:18

Kirk Cameron & The News

Well, according to WordPress, it’s been 173 days since my last post. Wow. Sorry, folks!

But today seems like the ideal day to start posting again. First of all, my family has made significant changes in the last six months. I left my job, and we moved across the country. I had a job lined up but it didn’t work out, so I have been jobless since December. This has been a terrible few months because of how hard it’s been getting rejection after rejection. Now I’ve been getting lots of interviews and bites, but there’s still not an official offer on the table yet. I’d appreciate prayers on this, if you’re so willing.

My husband and I took a break from CDD before the move, mostly because it wasn’t producing results and I was incredibly stressed. Then we moved into a townhouse, making it difficult to implement CDD when you have kids who can hear a pin drop a block away. I didn’t bring up CDD for a long time. He asked me about why I hadn’t said anything, and I told him that it wasn’t the time and that I assumed we weren’t doing it anymore.

But then I brought it up on Saturday. We started today slowly, but it was during intimacy as well. No matter the situation, we’re starting over and I fully expect to be disciplined if I do not submit to my husband.

This brings me to the title of my post. Kirk Cameron, Growing Pains alum and a vocal conservative Christian, is in the news for what he said at a conference about wives following their husbands. His message is Biblical: “For wives, this means submit to your husbands as to the Lord. 23 For a husband is the head of his wife as Christ is the head of the church. He is the Savior of his body, the church. 24 As the church submits to Christ, so you wives should submit to your husbands in everything.” Ephesians 5:22-24

In fact, Cameron didn’t even use the word submit. He talked about honor and respect. Here’s a link to the critical article. It’s an interesting read. I wonder what you think?
