Titus Two Ladies Talk, Part 1

A few years ago, my mom had a magazine that she published called Encouragement. She published it for several years. The next few days, I’m going to share an article that was in the first issue (November/December 1998) entitled Titus Two Ladies Talk. My mom asked my grandma’s friends to share snippets of advice, and she published them just as they wrote them down. They are such a blessing to read! Such wisdom is imparted through their words!

Titus 2:3-5 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

*Build your marriage on faith and trust in God and in one another.
*Communicate one with another.
*When problems arise, talk them out.
*Love one another
*Let your spouse know you care by the things you do for him
*In our fifty-six years of marriage, we still love each other as in the beginning of our marriage.
—Louise, married 56 years

*Invite the Lord to be a part of your marriage.
*Don’t buy what you can’t pay for, or in better words be sure you can afford what you buy.
*Remember that bickering over small things never pays. It only widens a gap between you.
*Keep your wedding vows and commitments.
*Similar backgrounds have helped our years together.
—Eleanor, Married 62 years

*Make a decision to stay married the rest of your life.
*Put your relationship above everything else.
*Do loving things for your mate.
*Put God first in your life. He is there to help with all problems.
—Neva Naomi, First marriage—55 years (widowed), Second marriage—3 years

Thanks for posting this. I recently attended an Urban Homemaker teleseminar. They spoke about the Titus Woman. It really got me interested in learning more.
