In this episode. Michael continues our short series on how to lead your wife. In part one, we looked at that husband who is leading is a husband that is following King Jesus. By submitting himself to Christ’s mission, he develops that weight and gravitas necessary to pull and hold a godly woman into his orbit. Submission requires mission. In this episode, we turn to the issue of the wife herself and how a leader can’t lead someone who won’t follow. Leading requires following. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/itsgoodtobeaman)
In this episode, Michael tackles a question we get asked more than anything else: how do I lead my wife?

In this series we’ll look at each of these three elements in turn starting with how leading means following.Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/itsgoodtobeaman)

I thoroughly enjoy this show, definitely good to have a Biblical perspective on manhood in this day and age. I also love that Castbox gives Joyce Meyers as the first choice in “similar shows”...
