Being a wife

After the Elevate camp with Jim McMillan, I decided to journal publicly on the topic of “Being a wife.”

I will write things as thoughts come in, as I read on God’s words, podcasts that I encounter with, thoughts from books etc etc. Please do leave a comment or feedback too, it’s good to hear what other people think. We can all learn together! Even more so, the experienced ones can share their gold nuggets too:)

I did a quick search on Google just on the word “wife” and came back with top results such as:  cheating wife, swapping wife, free Australia wife and tons of inappropriate images. I have to quickly close that website without even clicking into those links!

How on earth does people know how to be a wife if they didn’t get in touch with the original creator of man/woman relationship?

In my first month of marriage after all the whirlwind celebrations. I remember asking myself, am I being a good wife? There are teachings in the Bible, stuff you can learn from your Mum; but it really only make true sense when you are actually IN it.

I pray that God will teach me daily how to be a wife because I know this is one of the most important things that I can ever do. Marriage makes a home, a home makes a family, families make society.



  1. How true..From time to time, I find myself asking the same question as well, “Am I a good wife?, Am I a good daughter/sister in law?” Remember that your hubby is probably also asking the same thing. It’s good to keep reaffirming each other by telling your spouse that he/she is a great husband and tell him what he’s done this week that made you proud of him 😉

    Looking fwd to more entries!

  2. Great stuff Steph!! Yeah, so many words have lost their true meaning/have been used too loosely. Looking forward to your future posts!
