  1. This is something that i need to work on. I struggle with letting go of control. I’m not married yet just engaged but this is something i think that i can practice even now with my fiance. Thank you for the post

  2. I recently approached my husband about taking the lead back in our marriage. I can see how our middle daughter is beginning to second guess him and I know that is due to me. I truly love my husband, he just seems to be the peacekeeper instead of being the leader. I know he has tons of leadership in him, he just doesn’t show it with me. So, I had a real heart to heart with him about taking the leadership role. We agreed that we would need someone to hold us each accountable, so we reached out to a couple and asked them to mentor us. This post says it all for me. Thank you for sharing!!!

  3. Thanks for the chance to win. I’d rather poke my eyes out with knitting needles than try tatting, but I’d love to read your book (and I would need those eyes, I suppose)! 🙂

  4. I’ve tried and failed at marriage three times now. I’m sure this was part of the reason why. I’m also certain it was because I never included God in my search for the right mate. I’ve now turned that over to Him, and if I should marry again, it will be to someone who He’s chosen for me, and I will pray every day that He helps me be the Christian wife I should be.

  5. I have struggled in this area of marriage too. My husband and I both came from broken families. He was raised by his mom and I by my dad. It’s been a learn as you grow situation. I am truly blessed to have people like you to help me along!

  6. This is so good! I’m afraid I was one of those wives for many years… Through much prayer and study God showed me my error, and now my husband is a wonderful leader.

  7. I’m fairly fortunate because I feel like my wife has been trusting during our first two years of marriage. She quit her job and moved across country with me … and now we are poor, but we also spent five weeks in the Philippines. So it has been good and not so good.

    I’ve never felt like a great leader, but I think I do well enough. My goal is to be a great leader.

    On the very long flight to the Philippines, the stewardesses kept asking my wife what she was doing because they had never seen it before. My wife smiled each time and said, “This is called tatting.”
