When I first got married I honestly just winged it. When I say winged I mean I did whatever felt natural to me even if it was not conducive to my marriage. I had no example or marriage playbook to follow – or so I thought. My husband and I had completed premarital counseling but there are just some experiences that counseling still cannot prepare you for especially if you do not understand your calling in marriage. One day I finally realized that what I was doing was not working and that I needed some direction on how to be a better wife. I searched for a few books but nothing stood out. I told one of my friends what I was looking for and she recommended that I read a book that she credits to reviving her marriage.
The Calling: Wives
Women are called to: Submit. Respecting, honoring, helping, representing, encouraging, complementing and loving our husbands all fall under submission.
The Calling: Husbands
The Calling: Husbands & Wives
Men and women both have to put in effort to make a marriage work – that work is equal yet different.
