I am so excited to host our very first Joyfully Submitted Monthly Fellowship of Women, this Friday evening at my home. There are several young wives and young single women who will be in attendance. The one thing we have in common? We have all been negatively impacted by the God and Man hating agenda of the Feminist Movement! These women are clamouring for the freedom that can only be found in submission to Jesus Christ, and it will be my great pleasure to meet with them one night a month to encourage, edify, challenge, and disciple! Below are a few resources that are particularly near and dear to me. They have had a great impact on my life, my marriage, my parenting, my development as a Joyfully Submitted woman. These are just some of what we will be looking at over the course of the next year. I thought they might be a blessing to you as well! 😀 …
How does a wife help her husband be the man Christ wants him to be? How can she inspire him to love her? How can she discover the forgotten joys of being his true helpmeet? Victoria, beloved wife of Geoffrey Botkin and mother of seven, answers those questions and more in this 9-CD audio album from the immensely popular “Evenings with Victoria Botkin” webinar. Listen as Victoria shares biblical wisdom about woman’s great power, sinful tendencies, independence vs. submission, beauty, dress, makeup, respect, rights, hospitality, pitfalls of perfectionism, Hollywood expectations, trials, trust, and cultivating personality. 9-CD album and 200 page companion journal.

“The Christian community is full of dear ladies discouraged because their husbands lack vision to lead the family with gusto. Often wives cry out, “Help, my husband just doesn’t get it,” or, “I want more children, but my husband says ‘no,’” or even, “My husband is nervous about home schooling.”
In some cases, the men are simply overwhelmed with present responsibilities. In other cases, they lack a biblical framework for household leadership. It certainly does not help when men have poor role models in their own lives, which is the case for a growing majority of husbands.
For more than ten years, Doug and Beall Phillips have spoken with hundreds who share these sentiments. But, too often, wives contribute to the problem through a wrong response. The great news is that the Bible anticipates this crisis of leadership in the home and provides crystal clear direction for wives. Wise women will desire to bless their husband’s vision by embracing the specific affirmative and negative biblical commands given to them for this very purpose. Those who do will become a sanctifying influence on their household, grow in spiritual maturity, and become God’s vehicle for their husband’s spiritual revival.
This message is meant to encourage both wives and husbands with the principles and the practicalities for men and women growing in family vision for the Lord.” Visionforum.com
Feminine by Design – The Twelve Pillars of Biblical Womanhood, is written for teenage girls, but many adult women could greatly benefit from learning these principlesin order to help them understand biblical femininity. Here, Scott Brown explores some of the major passages of Scripture that explain it. You will find the biblical texts that he used to teach his own daughters as he sought to “bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). His intention was to fulfill the appeal of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (John 17)
Scott T. Brown is an elder at Hope Baptist Church in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He is the director of the National Center for Family Integrated Churches. Scott graduated from California State University with a degree in History, and received a M. Div. from Talbot School of Theology. He gives most of his time to pastoral ministry and conferences on biblical church life. He has been married to Deborah for twenty-seven years and they have four children and two grandchildren.
“As a young mother, my home was not . . . running smoothly. If this wonderful book by Kim Brenneman had been available then, I would have snatched it up and slept with it under my pillow. It would have been my manual to keep me moving in the grand adventure of large family logistics.” —From the new foreword by Michelle Duggar (19 Kids and Counting)

“How I would have loved to have had a manual like this when I first started having children!
