    I also think its really important to understand that Women and Men are equal, but have different roles. Thats the best way for me to explain or help others understand what it means for a wife to submit. You can’t have two leaders, but one is no more important than the other, and feelings, thoughts, opinions, etc… should be treated equally. One person has to be the final decision maker though, right? The husband wouldn’t be carrying out his role to unconditionally love his wife if he didn’t consider her thoughts, feelings, and opinions when making decisions for the family.

    This is wonderful, Ali! I’m currently in a book study with women at my church studying Biblical womanhood – what it means, how God designed gender and how all of these things work for the greater purpose of bringing Him glory! It’s a HARD task but it’s our calling and when it is done well, there is so much joy to be found in it 🙂

    we had the long version of that verse (starting at 2a) for our wedding and we spent some time discussing the reading before we chose it officially. We didn’t even think to discuss the meaning with our priest prior to the ceremony…horrible idea. His homily was almost offensive to us since we had discussed and intentionally chosen that reading…it wasn’t completely horrible but neither of us was very happy with the how the priest discussed the meaning of submission (telling our guests that – that was an “old” way of thinking).

  4. Ali,

    What a great topic! I also really love the book of Ruth and recited this to each other in our vows. Talk about an amazing devotion!
    “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.” -Ruth

  5. PREACH IT ALI! 😉 I love that the Monday series goes with your “WHY”!
