I thought chapter 6 of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free, just kind of brushed on the issues about marriage and the lies that can trap and hurt women. It seemed to just skim the surface.

I wanted to address another topic within chapter 5 of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free. There was so much meat in this chapter, that it was really impossible to keep it all to one post.

This chapter was so important and so relevant to having an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ and living a life free from the bondage of sin, that I feel like reading it every single day, over and over again, until the words are impressed in my memory.Pin It
We’re going to start it September 3rd. We’d start this week, but my husband got home Sunday evening after spending the last 29 months in Afghanistan, and I just haven’t spent a lot of time reading or preparing blog posts this week *smile*.Pin It

There was one man with whom I worked who could use a curse word five times in a sentence: as the noun, adjective, adverb, pronoun, and verb. It was nearly comical.Pin It
Two months into my first marriage, my husband quit his job. I had to withdraw plans to start school three weeks later, and we had to pack up and move back to his hometown. That decision he made started a cycle of unemployment/employment that made our marriage very stressful and very hard. Between the financial problems we faced and the addiction problems he faced during our over nine years of marriage, his adulterous affair and our divorce was a relief for me.

I read in a marriage book one time to be careful with whom you share your marital problems, because it’s very easy to update friends on the problems, but we tend to forget to update on the progress.
