Our culture doesn’t teach us what biblical respect is about. In fact, it stands opposed to it. Respect is something that is disappearing from all of our relationships – in our families, in our schools, at work, and in our marriages.
Strength & Dignity challenges us, as women, to learn what respect really is, to give it to ourselves and others, embrace it, and see how it can change our marriages. Literally.
From one of our participants:
"I’ve found the love and respect I’ve been fighting for in my marriage for over 20 years by giving it away!"
We don’t know what respect looks like, and we worry if we’ll become a doormat. We’re afraid of losing something, but we actually have so much to gain!
When we aren’t respectful to our husbands, we misrepresent Christ and the church–marriage is more about being like Jesus than anything else. We are called to be a reflection of the life of Christ – as God made us in His image.
