As a Christian woman, it really is my heart’s desire to please God. As a Christian wife, it is also my desire to truly be a helpmeet to my husband. It is challenging. I am very strong-willed and strong-minded and opinionated (could you tell), but it is my hearts desire and I do strive to be a wife that pleases both God and my husband.
As I am learning more about what God expects of me in both regards, I am finding some valuable, godly references resources – and want to share them with you. I may not agree with every statement made on these sites, but have found them to be useful & beneficial for my spiritual growth, practical tips for organization & homekeeping, and want to recommend them to you! **Check back often for updates!!!**
