It begins with my husband and I attending our third marriage retreat where a couple read a poem, and the wife ended with her calling her husband Lord. My first reaction was that I didn’t believe he needed to be called Lord, but after watching the movie War Room God begin to show me through my journaling how calling my husband Lord was an act of respect of position.
This book is my journey of how God revealed to me the order of the family in 1 Peter 3 (AMP). Understanding how God commands submission of both the husband and wife, winning without words, learning what true beauty means, understanding why Sarah obeyed Abraham, why a husband should honor his wife, how a husband and wife are heirs together, and concluding with the breakdown of being a virtuous woman.
If you are married or desire to be married, this book will give you the tools to overcome the fear of submission, how to have a marriage without arguments, and experience the love of God that will enhance intimacy. This book will be your road map to making sound and Godly choices in your marriage. My prayer is that by the end of this book you will allow the peace of God to rule your heart and your home. There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear….1 John 4:18.
