Covering the Web: Edition #1

Covering The Web

“Covering the Web” is where we shine the spotlight on content about head covering and complementarianism that we did not produce ourselves. Each edition includes articles, videos, photos, as well as e-book deals relevant to our movement’s mission. Links are not endorsements.

  • MUST READ: Head Coverings, Part 2: The Issues At Hand (The Domestic Theologian)
    “The only sect of the Christian church that has abandoned the practice to a widespread degree has been the Western church beginning in the late 18- and 1900s. Not coincidentally, this same era and culture also saw the birth and cultivation of feminist philosophy, which rejects the concept of male headship within the church and home.”
  • 15 Questions To Test if you are a Proverbs 31 Woman (Radical Christian Woman)
    “Oh, Proverbs 31 Woman, you set an impossible (yet beautiful) standard….the truth is most women will struggle to answer positively for all these questions, so don’t freak out if you fall short. We just need to recognize areas that we are slacking off in and work harder in those areas.”
  • A Journey to Cover (They Were Strangers)
    “Excuse me, Ma’am.” “Yes?” I said, a little surprised by the short-haired, long-bearded man with tattoos covering his forearms….“I don’t mean to startle you, but I just wanted to tell you how nice it is to see you covering your head and dressing modestly and teaching your girls to do the same.”

The following are a list of limited time e-book deals which are on the topic of biblical manhood and womanhood. If you don’t have a Kindle device, you can install their free reading app on your computer, phone, or tablet. Prices may vary per region.

Hi I’m Miranda. I thought I’d introduce myself to my new followers! I know that when I follow a new account I love to know more about them and their life. If you know me in real life, you can skip this one lol 😄. A list of fairly random things about me: -I had my first homebirth almost 20 years ago, and 5 after that. -My husband and I met in grade 10, but didn’t date until after highschool. -I grew up going to church, but stopped when my parents divorced when I was 17. -I got saved February 2005, and consider myself a Bible believing non-denominational Christian. -I started covering full time 7 months ago for spiritual reasons (that’s a story for another time) -My mum taught me to sew when I was 14. -I went to school for Fashion Design. It’s super fun to be able to draft my own clothes! -We’ve homeschooled for 15 years. -I have Celiac Disease, but believe I will be healed from it:) -I’m a 2 on the Enneagram and ISFJ on the Myers-Briggs personality test. -I usually take on/start too many things, and then disappear when I feel overwhelmed #introvertissues. -I have a heart for lonely people, moms with little ones, overwhelmed homeschoolers etc. -reading Nourishing Traditions 12 years ago was a game changer for me! -I love British TV, BBC miniseries, thrift stores, floral fabric and china, and basically all other granny things. -I also love to lift weights and use kettlebells. I used to think that meant I had to be #fitspo but now I realize it’s just part of who I am and what I like, and I’ve put it in its place:) 🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼 Whew…that’s it. More than you ever wanted to know about me. Introduce yourself in the comments. I love to know more about who is following me! ❤

Five Ways I Seek To Be A Submissive Wife

For some of us, submission may be unfamiliar — not because the term is foreign, but because the concept is unclear. In many marriages, it’s not common for the husband to ask his wife to “obey” him in anything particular. So, it can be hard for the wife to objectively gauge whether or not she is really being submissive as the Bible says wives should be.

“Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord” (Colossians 3:18 KJV; see also Ephesians 5:22; 1 Peter 3:1).

Since biblical head covering represents the woman’s acceptance of the man’s headship (leadership), it helps to have a clear idea of how to apply that concept practically.

“But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God… For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman: but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man” (1 Corinthians 11:3, 7-9 KJV).

Though there are wives who have husbands with demanding personalities, there are others who have husbands with very laid-back, relaxed attitudes. This article is meant for those wives, as advice in how to honor their easy-going husbands. That’s exactly the type of man my husband is.

“Am I A Submissive Wife?”

The other day, I asked my husband (only a little apprehensively), “Am I a submissive wife?” His response was right to the point… and I’ll tell you what it was in a moment. But first, I’d like to share with you what the word submission implies, to him.

In his mind, this word carries with it some negative connotations: slaves submit to their masters, and animals submit to their owners. The image of a groveling, spiritless creature always pops up in his imagination, largely as a result of his cultural upbringing. However, my husband has never expected me to act like his slave nor does he ever want us to interact in that way. He wants me to be his wife.

He described it to me this way: “In order to have a good marriage, we need to have good communication. We need to have conversations where we — the both of us — share our opinions respectfully. Even though the Bible says that I’m the leader, I value your input in making decisions for our family.” It’s true: he does like to hear what I think and will sometimes even change his mind about something based on an insight I’ve shared. He respects me. But what about me? Do I respect him?

When I asked him if I was a submissive wife, do you know what his answer was? Read more
