CTBHHM: Sex, Charles, and Lesbians

confiding

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 196 This week we continue with Debi's questions not to ask your husband. 7. Do you ever think of just loving me in the spiritual way instead of always the carnal? I am so hungry for some deep spiritual understanding and communication. Something deep inside him is so dissatisfied, so frustrated that she responds intimately only when she feels right about it. It speaks nothing of his manhood. His soul is sick all the way to its core. He falls … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Men Can’t Take Criticism (Ever)

fragile man

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 194---195 This intro matter confuses me a bit. The Skinny Swine Lack of Judgement "Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands" (Proverbs 14:1).  "A wise woman doesn't attempt to instruct her husband through feigned questions. Her questions will be sincere inquiries concerning his will."  The skinny woman who inspired this next list of questions doubtless saw herself as a kind person, wonderful mother, … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Debi Speaks on Ruth’s Sex Life (and a Stove)

stove

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 192---194 In this section we get a letter from a woman named Ruth, and Debi's response to it. Remember that we are in the section on being "discreet," so presumably this relates (somehow). Dear Mrs. Pearl, I know that joy comes from complete submission to God and to your husband. Does that mean I should not be frustrated and just plain tired? I have a question. Should one be quiet when you know your husband is making a poor decision? Doesn't being a helper … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Discretion and the Jewel in the Pig’s Nose

pigsnout

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 188---189 Here we begin the chapter titled "To Be Discreet." Debi of course starts by quoting Titus 2 once again, given that she is going through it's pieces one by one and the phrase "that they may teach the young women . . . to be discreet" is the subject of this chapter. She then defines "to be discreet": To be discreet: Prudent; wise in avoiding error and in selecting the best means to accomplish a purpose; circumspect, courteous, polite, honest … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Sexually Abused Children as Broken, Diseased

yell and tell

Created To Be His Help Meet,  pp. 185---186 This week we get to read the end of Debi's chapter on loving one's children. The Hall There is no permanent cure for genital herpes and many other forms of STDs. Yet one in five young teens in the USA has a sexually transmitted disease. Many statistics also tell us that one in four little girls will be sexually "messed with" by the time they are four years old. One in four little boys will be the victims of homosexual abuse. Our children are in … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Daycare Is Adopting Your Kid Out

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 184---185 We are still in Debi's chapter on loving one's children. Last week we got to the first part of the chapter that actually contained some actually good advice. This had to do with the importance of a mother working one on one with her children, and teaching them little things all through the day---what goes in soup, how to sound words out, and how to fold laundry. I really did like that Debi said a mother should work directly with an individual child … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Esther and Her Mother

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 182---183 We're still in the chapter on loving your children. Remember, Debi has told women to love their children by loving their husbands, and to love their children by not concentrating too much on loving Jesus. Now, for the first time, we actually turn to loving the children themselves. "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it" (Proverbs 22:6). God has honored mothers with the blessed privilege of being … [Read more...]
