In all my surfings on the Web, a terrible waste of time, I know, I realize that many of our sisters in Christ have read this book. It would seem that either you love it or you hate it.
I loved it! Let me tell you why.
First of all, being married to a Command Man is no easy matter. Being a Command Woman myself makes it even worse. It seems that somewhere along the way, some women whose husbands were in the ministry, were taught a unique way of being a helpmeet. They were taught to prod and nag, (called “reminding”) so long as the job got done. They were being his helpmeet. They told their husbands what they thought of his sermon, not the contents, but the style, grammar, etc. They also let him know quite firmly when they disagreed with his doctrine or convictions. They felt that this was their duty. Now I am not saying that we cannot disagree, or tell him that we disagree, but we can say that it all has to do with your tone.
Debi Pearl had me pegged. I felt convicted throughout the whole book. Things have changed and are changing still. DH likes the changes!
Now, I know that the book is not inspired, but it helped me. You may need something entirely different. You’re probably not the I-know-more-about-the-Bible-than-you-do kind of gal. I trying to get that “You’re doing it wrong” look off my face. This is a real chore for someone as opinionated as myself!
There you have it….me in all my “glory”
