Quoting Quiverfull: Asking to Have Physical Needs Met Dishonors Husband?

Children's bedroom or Army barracks?

Children’s bedroom or Army barracks?

by Susanna from her blog The Blessing of Verity – This world is not my home, I’m just-a-passin’ thru..

 Question:  Could you share your best tips for being content with your large family in such a small space?  I have to confess I’m not always content in our house.

Answer:  Thanks for asking this excellent question!

I want to be honoring to my husband, and it’s very hard for a good man when he feels like he isn’t able to provide what his woman really wants.  I don’t want to be like the petulant and demanding fisherman’s wife in the children’s story, who keeps sending her miserable husband back to the magic fish to wish for more and more and more, instead of being content with enough.
