Submission is a topic that is hard to address in a short little Marriage Minute. I do know this, though. Submission isn’t supposed to be ugly and oppressive. It’s supposed to be beautiful and loving. Through submission and love toward each other in marriage, we are supposed to see a picture of God’s love for the church and our submission in love to Him.

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a wonderful series of posts on submission, leadership, and marriage by Susan Evans. Start with the first one, “How My Husband Shepherd’s Me, Part 1” and read at least through “Wild Submission.” Susan’s series of posts addresses marriage and submission more eloquently than I could hope to, and more successfully than I could in one minute. 🙂 You’ll enjoy them!

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
