Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Where Can I Find A Godly Wife?

Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Where Can I Find A Godly Wife? April 29, 2015

AnsweringAnother installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends answers. As always  all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.

Okay, on to today’s question, this time from a man instead of the usual young lady:

Where to find a Godly wife in my area?

I’m a 28 year old man who’s had a very tough time trying to find a Godly spouse. I’ve been praying and looking for some time now.

I love my Baptist church dearly but out of 700 people, there’s only 4 eligible women, none of which seem to be good candidates. I don’t want to go “church hopping” just to find a wife. Is there any other avenues I should try?

The only answer given was to go to Michael and Debi Pearl’s ‘Shindig’ event. Surely there is something this guy could do to find a bride that doesn’t involve traveling to a backwoods conference?
