Amen and amen! Thank you for writing this Carolyn, and thank you for being a voice to speak up for "this topic in a world that desperately needs to hear the redemptive words of our Creator and Savior."


It's disconcerting, all the chaos surrounding girls as they grow up and try to understand who they were meant to be... No matter where you go in the world, the world has found a way to abuse its women (any departure from God's plan for us is abuse!), but it is SUCH a relief to know there is an entire nation fighting for a womanhood that brings joy - the nation of God's people. I thank God He has shown me how much of my own culture is a lie already.

I was curious, what do you mean by loving their husbands "after" marriage?


Good question, Christina. When a woman is not married any longer (say, a widow), she is still biblically required to avoid sexual immorality. She may remarry, if it's the Lord's will, and if so, her faithfulness to God's command as a widow is part of loving her new husband--as well as loving Jesus!


This was a great post! Thank you!


Thanks for your post. I live with the Kurds in Northern Iraq. This kind of thing isn't much talked about and I've always wondered if it was as widespread there as it is in other Islamic areas. Please keep praying!


I SO agree. I work with college students and have been stunned and heartbroken over the confusion they face in these issues.

  • Wondering about the long time between posts on this blog? Well, most days I don't have much to say--I'm busy working on my third book and it's captured all my extra brain cells.
