Educate us on
something you know alot about or are good at. Take any approach you’d like
(serious and educational or funny and sarcastic)…

If someone asked me the question: “Who are you?”
My answer would be: “I’m a wife, a mom, a friend, a teacher and home executive (fancy name for housewife)

I’ve decided to give you my best tips to be each of the above.

How to be a good wife:
  • Marry a man you feel is right for you in every way.
  • Allow God to be the centre of your marriage.
  • Allow yourself to fall in love every day.
  • Trust him with every inch of your being.
  • Treat him with respect, admiration and understanding.
  • Be open and honest, and communicate.
  • Have fun, laugh together and keep the passion alive.
