dreamstime_s_47557978 Karen, When you announced the small group study last year, my friend was really on fire about God Empowered Wife. I was skeptical at first. I knew it had blessed her. But I wasn’t really sure it was going to help me. After all I thought things like – I wasn’t the leader in our home – I was the submissive one – my husband was the boss…at least these were my thoughts. But she was so excited about it that I thought it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try! My marriage had always struggled but I always blamed it on my husbands history of having been raised by a very abusive stepmother. All our problems stemmed from this – I thought – it was all his problems – not mine. But I liked the name “God Empowered Wife”. I at least knew I needed to be one of those! Read More→

    A note from Marien: Karen, I have some big news. I was diagnosed to have polyps on my uterus and thus not able to have any more children. I was going to have a surgery, but we had some problems with the insurance company and I had to suspend the surgery for the time being.

June 19, 2013 [Your Letters, GEWife] Jen writes this great testimony to living biblically on her blog Texas to UgandaGod called me to Africa to care for orphans when I was 10 years old. He waited 25 years to send me the first time, and now I go each summer to care for children at Agnes’ Children’s Care in Jinja, Uganda. I came home from Africa after my first trip five years ago sure that we should adopt Rachel and Jacob. I had fallen instantly in love with them, and could imagine how perfectly they would fit in our family. My husband was not convinced. It’s not that he was opposed to adoption (which, at that time was not even allowed in Uganda), it was that he was prayerful, and told me that he felt like they both needed to stay in Uganda, and we would  have to love them and care for them from afar. I can’t tell you how many tears I shed over this —

Doormat

Household, ironingMay 10, 2013 [Your Questions, GEWife]
Hi Karen, I am just wondering if I could have a simple explanation of “doormat.” It comes up during the GEWife classes, like *shock horror, we don’t want to be like that* but I am trying to separate being a doormat from being obedient to God and stepping back and letting God change a husband without the wife butting in. What do you perceive a doormat to be and perhaps I can get a handle on it all? I don’t think necessarily allowing your husband to make decisions without you interfering, even with gentle persuasion, is a doormat, even if you don’t like it,which is where I am getting confused. If he’s going to lead, then he has to be allowed to, and allowed to make mistakes under God’s guidance, too. Would appreciate some clarity, thanks! Rochelle (Australia)

Hi Karen, What a blessing your first class has been to my marriage already! I never thought that I was trying to control my husband with some of my actions. He is much more than I asked God for, but as soon as I started to implement some of the tools that you gave us things have been even better. (Yesterday in class, I understood that by doing some things in my marriage I could bring problems to it). Well, yesterday, after he got home from work Read More→

Dear Karen, This is a little, somewhat humorous testimony of how God started to show me that this idol of the heart thing from the God Empowered Wife course about God’s Word really works. Although it is seemingly such a minor thing, the experience gave me faith that led to me confessing other idols in my heart and resulted in dramatic changes in other areas of our life. Through this one little thing I gained the confidence to trust God with those other, bigger things and miraculous things have started happening . . .

April 6, 2013 – [Your Letters, GEWife]  

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image25178225Thanks so much for speaking at our ladies’ group. One of the ladies said it was the best she had been to for several years. I think that most people really related, and they also said they hadn’t laughed so much in ages!! Who said, “God doesn’t have a sense of humor?” I hope all of your sessions, wherever they are work in people’s hearts and that we become more Christlike because of it. -Joy (Australia)   

Hi Karen – I just wanted to say thank you again for sharing with all us ladies at MOPS today. . . (cont.) Read More→
