He Never Helps Out!

Today I’m going to point you to another awesome blog on biblical womanhood called “girltalk.” It’s written by Carolyn Mahaney and her three daughters.

Their six-part series on hospitality rocks! I wanted to dialogue with you over one of these posts in particular. It examines two errors wives can believe about home making:

1. We expect our husband to be our helper. (Girltalk asks six heart-probing questions about our role as home manager.)
2. We resent our husband when he doesn’t help us at all. (Girltalk gives six helpful steps to overcoming that challenge.)

I’d love to hear what you think about this post. Just one thing: no male bashing here! Let’s respect our men even as we talk about our individual challenges. With that said, comment away.
