Child-training. Meal planning. Grocery shopping. Cleaning the home. All things a woman manages throughout her day. So, how on earth does a mom switch gears from calling the shots all day long to handing her husband the reins when he comes home? How do we not continue to control all things when we manage our kids and the home, all day, every day? How do we stop ourselves from barking out orders to our husbands when they walk through the door? (And if you’re working outside of the home you probably deal with this problem, too!)
These were all thoughts that ran through my head when I was a new mom. Yes, I read the scripture about the husband being the head of the home but what exactly did that look like since my husband was gone from the home the majority of the day?
But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
I planned the nap schedule. The feeding schedule. The menu schedule. The social schedule. I planned the babysitter and even planned our dates. Goodness, I was clearly in charge!
And being my husband’s helper didn’t make sense to me because when he came home I was the one telling him what I needed in order to execute my plans.
What was I missing? I definitely wanted to be obedient to the scriptures but I wasn’t quite sure what I needed to change. How do I go from mom to wife? How do I switch gears so my man could lead the home?
