Wives, Submit to Your Husbands

I know a lot of Christian women have a problem with the idea of submitting to a man. I have no issues with it at all. I am a naturally submissive person. It’s not always the best way to be, but it keeps me out of power struggles, including in my marriage. But that’s not the only reason that I’m able to submit to my husband. I’m able to respect my husband because he plays his role as well! I’ll explain. First, here are the verses I’m referring to.

Ephesians 5:22- 33 says: “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. Continue reading

Being Married to a Hunter

My husband is obsessed with hunting. I’m not exaggerating! He hunts literally anything that is legal. He also traps and fishes, so there is rarely a time of year that he’s not outside. I do not hunt. I go with him every once in a while, but it’s cold and there’s so much walking and I don’t know how I would do with watching an animal get shot. Plus, it gets super boring if you’re sitting and waiting.

Mr. Rockefeller always thought he wanted to be with someone who shared his passion for hunting, but he married me instead. I may not share his biggest interest, but I love to see his passion! He lights up when he gets to talk about hunting. Continue reading

Living with a Type 1 Diabetic

Mr. Rockefeller has type 1 diabetes. He handles his diabetes really well and I am so proud of him for the ways that he deals with it. Type 1 diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, is a condition where a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin. Insulin is a hormone that regulates glucose (sugar) levels. If a type 1 diabetic’s sugar goes too low or too high, he could have all kinds of symptoms. Diabetics regulate their glucose levels by injecting insulin to keep their sugar levels from going too high and consuming glucose when the injected insulin causes their levels to go too low.

Divorce is Not an Option

Our society has really screwed us over. Society has taught us to do whatever makes us happy. Our society has made us selfish and lazy… and lonely.

I’ve literally had a married person say to me, “I know I said vows, but it doesn’t matter. I’m not going to stay in this marriage if I’m not happy.”  How do people not see the problem with this?! You became one when you got married! You made a commitment! If ending the relationship was an option, why did you get married? Just continue dating and avoid the extra heartache when it ends.  Continue reading
