Training Husbands and Leading Against My Will

Actual conversation between me and my husband tonight:

Me: I'm trying to decide what I want to write about for my next project. All my girlfriends think I should write a relationship book.

Jeremy: You don't need to. Just tell women to find a guy exactly like me and they're all set.

Me: Oh heck no. It was so hard to train you. I don't want any woman to have to go through what I went through to get their husband to be like you. Just kidding! I know you trained me just as much as I trained you.

Jeremy: I trained you way more.

Me: You couldn't just lie to me right then? I would have appreciated a lie.

It's true though, people. We trained each other. With the help of a therapist.

So my Wednesday night Bible study group is changing. Again. This particular group has had a heck of a time working. But long story short, it looks like I'm going to be leading the group, at least through the end of this book.

I keep getting put in the position to lead, and I have been fighting it. I did not feel ready, especially, to lead a Bible study. But God has beat it into my head -- continually put me in this position to either lead or let the group fall apart. So I agreed to lead. And I admit, it felt natural once I stopped fighting it.

So look at me. I'm a Bible study leader. Amazing!
