by Sunshine Mary from her blog Sunshine Mary and the Dragon – Showing Love to Your Husband by Treating Him With Respect
Mary didn’t write any of this. She’s quoting Nancy Kennedy’s book ‘When He Doesn’t Believe’ and Nancy is quoting Bryan Chapell’s book ‘Marriage as it’s Meant to be’
Chapell says a woman isn’t to offer respect just to feed her husband’s ego, however. It also benefits her as well. “The more she treasures her husband, the more precious a woman will find their union and the more rewarding their relationship will become to her. The woman who longs for the bonds of love finds her deepest satisfaction is providing the support that secures the relationship for which she longs. Conversely, the woman who does not offer her husband respect denies herself the potential for intimacy.”
QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, influential bloggers and cultural enforcers and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.
