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 Facebook post from Kristin Atwood: “Just finished reading “The God Empowered Wife” tonight and wow, it is an amazing study! If you consider yourself to be a take charge type of girl I highly recommend this study! It really helped me a lot….I didn’t realize quite how poorly I was doing in the submission department until I read this. I didn’t do it with a group, just by myself, but I took 4-5 weeks with it, thinking through each time I read, and tried to act upon the challenges she presented. It was definitely challenging! Giving my husband moments of leadership and practicing submission wasn’t always easy, especially as we are starting the process of building a house together! But really, what better time to do this? And it really is freeing, and wonderful, to see how it is changing not only me but him too! 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 —

The hymn of “This is my story, this is my song” went around my ears. I sobbed uncontrollably, blowing my nose from time to time. I’ve never been so emotional.When putting their love story together, I marvelled at their amazing life blessed by God. A godly,fruitful and enlightening marriage. The most touching story I have ever read because it is a truly true story which brings us the most powerful testimony. Read More→

I am Marien, from Venezuela. I used to attend Subi Church in Perth from 2009 to 2011 and I followed Graham’s illness from the distance after. With a judgmental heart. I could not understand why that was happening to you guys. I loved Graham’s preaching, so deep, so rich, and I learned a lot from his sermons. To me you looked as the perfect Christian family, and perfect Christian families are not supposed to suffer; that was my thinking at the time. Read More→

Changying

dreamstime_xs_21425107May 30, 2013 [Your Letters, Discerning Idols]   I chose the name “Changying” for a dear friend from China who now lives in Australia because she is no longer just living, she is “flourishing and luxurious” in her growing understanding of living as one of God’s children. Changying refers to Tracey, who has taken over some of the classes in Australia since I’ve left and whom you’ll meet in another post.

“Dear Karen, I had initially thought that it would just have been a small talk when I met with Tracey, like a daily life chat, since we had not met for a long while. What’s more, I know little of Tracey but I am sure she is one who is trustworthy.  Well, I felt very warm when I saw her passionate smile again that day. Soon after our conversation started, I found that even more passionate is her great love to God. Read More→

I’m always interested to hear your stories of how you applied God Empowered Wife or Idols of the Heart concepts in a particular situation in your life. Have one? Write me at kbhaught@godempowered.com to share as an inspiration to others. I’m particularly looking for stories that describe a situation, how you would have normally handled it–and what would have come of that–and how you handled it differently from what you’ve learned through GEWife/Idols. – Karen

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→
