Too often submission is represented as repressive servanthood, rather than a voluntary desire to empower a husband's leadership. And as with many things in our culture, this view of submission has found its way into our churches and marriages.
In reality, women desperately want to experience the graceful waltz where both the husband and wife are in harmony—each 'dancing' their God-given role. But all too often there are no realistic, godly models from which to draw.
Author and speaker Cindy Easley surveyed ordinary women and asked, “How does this work for you?” Specifically, how do you live out submission in your particular situation? These are their stories, from caring for a chronically ill husband to living with a nonbeliever. Each example will help married or engaged women gain appreciation for God's will for marriage and learn to dance with the one they love.
