December 15, 2012 [Your Letters, Marriage]   Dear Karen, Recently an acquaintance gave me a copy of your book. We had been discussing submission in marriage and I have to say I was greatly opposed it. In my childhood my father ruled (and bullied) and I was determined I would not be ruled by my husband! I also felt submission was not for me as I was a believer and my husband wasn’t. Plus as a choleric personality type I love control and decision making (and wouldn’t easily give it up!) We are approaching our 7th wedding anniversary (I became a believer about 4 years into the marriage) and we are expecting our 2nd child. I have been frustrated and tormented by his lack of interest in God. I have begged and beseeched God to have an encounter with him, I have asked fellow Christians to pray for him all with no result. I have been tormented by the thought that “by my godly acts” he may be saved – was I too ungodly for him to be saved? I believe your book has shed light on how my actions are negatively impacting our marriage and potentially hindering his salvation. I just wanted to write and thank you for your book. I love the frequent reference to scripture and I truly believe that active submission is God’s will for me as a wife and may even lead my husband to the Lord.

– Carmen
