"Men, Will You Vow to Lead?"

I love when godly men call on other Christian men to lead:

Pastor Mark Driscoll share his thoughts here and
also has a free downloadable poster--

Wow. As a single young woman I've been thinking a lot on what characteristics constitute "marriage material" in a man. I think that poster sums it up right there.

Becky said...

That was such an amazing message! My husband works out of town so on his down time today we were able to watch it "together" via Skype.

We are both super excited because we are able to see Mark and Grace in February for the Real Marriage tour. God is definitely at work in the marriages of believers!

I love this. Thanks, June.

P.S. I featured you on Domestically Divine. Love the 1800's High Tea Party.

My husband and I just finished reading Real Marriage together and are now excited to start watching the sermons together. It's already been such an encouragement and time of growth for us.

Thanks for sharing! My husband and I are reading Real Marriage right now, and are planning on listening to his new sermon series soon.

Hello there,
I so agree with what you are trying to do here. However, I wonder if a woman who does not have a husband whom is a leader or who would even consider veiwing this might be left with a feeling of discontentment. I realize you are not attempting to teach men, but your blog is for women as is mine and I think it is important we do not move into dominions that are not ours. I know say Douglas Wilson speaks on this and even asks woman to not read his books. Now if you are listening to this pastor as a couple amen. It just seems we try too much as woman to usurp our husbands biblical manhood by finding things they should see/hear when they have not asked. This post could put many woman in this spot. How many woman viewed this and spent a few minutes this eveing trying to get that message to their husbands, how many husbands went to bed thinking they were being compared to someone else..once again. I personally did not watch the video, as I will not watch a mans teaching unless my husband would request that I be there. My husband does appreciate me purchasing Vision forum DVDs CDS. Sm Davis, Steve Maxwell etc for him but this is something I all ready know to do. Your post puts woman who may not have that type of situation in their marriage in an akward postition. I think we need to be more sensitive to that.
It would be like a mens blog posting a Victoria Botkin message and just seems out of their dominion...I do not mean to offend but just felt heavy in the Lord to say this. As I said I know where your heart is coming from but many men and woman do not have this agreement in their marriage and several Christian men I think of would frown on the women venturing into this area. If your thinking I am way off, maybe just pray about it and seek some councel. You can email me at

I do not expect that you need to publish this what so ever!!
Every blessing,

Dear Jodi,

I appreciate your concern and would like to explain why I posted this.

The title is from the article from Driscoll's blog, not mine. I linked to it hoping others might read it and enjoy it as well. Perhaps it is misunderstand if you do not click on the link to see the actually title.

I loved the message and love seeing men call other godly men to leadership which is sorely lacking today. In no way am I personally calling men to leadership--just enjoy when I see men obeying God in doing so. That's all--plain and simple. :)

What I would like to see is this post going viral and men and woman stumbling upon it (hearing Driscoll's teaching, of course, and not mine as I am not in the business of teaching men to lead at all) and being blessed as many have in the past.

Many wives have shared Driscoll's teachings with their husbands and his teaching has mentored them. It is a win-win situation.

I, personally, cannot control other women watching this and feeling discontent, etc.or men feeling less than better. If that were the case I could probably never share anything here for fear of worrying about every small detail.

Remember, this is just a blog where I share my heart, things that I like, etc. from my perspective. Take it for what it is worth.

I do not take it personally at all, but you must realize that a blogger is not there to please everyone. It is not humanly possible, nor my desire. My desire is not to please man, but the Lord.

Thanks for you concern and many blessings...
