Complementarianism is a $20 word used to describe how men and women are to work together in marriage, in ministry and in the body of Christ.  It is a buzz topic these days in Christian circles.  I believe that there is a fair amount of confusion surrounding the topic and today, I’d like to walk through what God says about our roles in marriage and in the body of Christ.

Praying for God’s Will

We started dating in the summer of 2010 and that fall I transferred and joined JP as an Auburn student. We were inseparable. “

Iron Sharpens Iron

Today’s post is the 3rd in a WordWashedWife series on prayer. It is written by my daughter Madeline. I believe you will benefit from her post about a troublesome time in her marriage after having children. Keep reading: “There will be moments that your spouse will deeply disappoint and hurt you.  Notice I don’t say there may be, because there will be.  Marriage is the closest, most vulnerable, most intimate relationship a human can experience on Earth.  As a result, it has the power to wound in a way that you wouldn’t think possible.” 

Meet Me at the Peach
