What should a married woman do when she wants her husband’s behavior to change? What’s a good starting point for initiating this kind of conversation with your spouse?
Nancy Guthrie, Jen Wilkin, and Jackie Hill Perry discuss this question and more in a new nine-minute roundtable video. Wilkin speaks about the need to check her own heart before she addresses an issue with her husband. Perry shares how prayer has helped her—and her husband—anticipate the Spirit’s work in their marriage. Guthrie considers how simply asking your spouse about what you need, rather than moving toward manipulation or complaining, has “revolutionized” her marriage.
Join their conversation (by watching above or listening below) to hear these three women testify to the power of God’s grace to strengthen marriages, grow us in godliness, and conform their husbands more closely to the image of Christ.
