ABC's of being the BEST Helper!

 One of my favorite books about marriage is Debbie Pearl's Created to Be His Help Meet. It is full of Godly wisdom, stories, tips,  and real life experience. I don't agree with every single word or idea - but I do stand with her on most things. One of my favorite pages is an alphabetical list of ways to be the best wife you can. It's a great check list - I write little stars next to the ones I need to work on. I hope you are able to use this!

One of my girlfriends in small group grew up next door to the Pearls! In their parenting book, the Pearls use my friend's brother in one of their examples. Too funny.

What a great list. It's definately something I need to print and keep in my Bible as a constant reminder.

Meghan said...

Thanks for the reminder, Lauren! That book has easily been one of the greatest blessings to me (and Tyler too, I hope). I got it for my bridal shower ... from you (and the other chapel ladies). I've since given it to several friends before their weddings. I even used it to write my vows.

Monika said...

Great list! I have this book too and I love it!

I'm enjoying your blog! This is a good one. Certainly not politically correct, is it? :~D
