About the event

I still remember the moment when I came to Christ and wanted to move to a new church and my husband would not have any of it. Up until this point we were going to a luke warm church that lacked in biblical discipleship and did not encourage the fruit of a transformed life in Christ. He was not saved so he did not understand why we couldn’t live a worldly life and still call ourselves Christians.

Being saved I moved and obeyed my convictions to attend this new church as this would help me grow spiritually. I would attend this new church without my husband. Eventually after much prayer he eventually agreed to come along but still our priorities and mind set were very different. I desired him to be the spiritual leader of our family but the problem was he wasn't saved and I spent most of my early years in marriage in an unequally yoked marriage. It was a challenging time and I have learnt that God and His word  does not abandon us in these situations. He is faithful and after many years we came together being equally yoked in Christ. 

We need to recognise that marriages and relationships work best when we are heading in the same direction. Being out of sync or spiritually mismatched just causes challenges. Our faith goals in marriage need to be in alignment. When one spouse is trying to establish a faith based home and the other spouse dismisses faith, conflict is bound to follow. Competing agendas around that which is fundamentally important will undermine our teamwork and collaboration, making navigation difficult. From how we will spend money and time to how we will raise our children, differing values will cause us to collide. Marriages struggle when they are being pulled in different directions.

Christians should avoid aligning their life with someone outside of the faith to spare themselves a world of heartache. 2 Corinthians 6:14 instructs, “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” If the situation of being unequally yoked can be avoided it should. It is better to break up with someone who is not interested in pursuing faith than to marry in hopes that they will change. Short-term heartache is better than long-term frustration.

In this upcoming workshop you will learn how to overcome the common challenges being in an unequally yoked marriage and learn that as a wife you can still thrive in your marriage. Do you expeience any of these common challenges?

  • Are you attending church on your own?
  • Is your husband not a believer?
  • Do you find it hard to share the gospel with your husband?
  • Is your husband a new believer?
  • Are you progressing further in your relationship with the Lord more than your husband?
  • Do you resent your husband's lack of spiritual growth?
  • Is your husband a believer but lacks maturity in his spiritual  leadership in the family?
  • Do you argue constantly over your Faith in the Lord?
  • Do you feel lonely or withdrawn from your husband since receiving the Lord?
  • Do you feel divided in how you parent and raise your children?
  • Is he always complaining about your commitment to the church and fellowship?
  • Are your single and dating an unbeliever?
  • Have you considered the consequences of marrying someone who is not of the same Faith?
  • Have you considered the spiritual leadership of your future husband?

If any of these points relate to you. Come and be encouraged you are not alone. In fact there are many wives and women in your situation. We will discuss and delve into these challenges from a biblical perspective  and you will walk away with practical steps  in how you can apply the word of God in your situation. In addition to this you will be hearing from other wives who have learnt to progress in their journey even in seaons where they experienced being spiritually mis matched with their husbands. . Their testimonies will encourage you. 

Don't just survive in your marriage, learn how to thrive regardless of where your husband is spiritually. Also for single women don't marry someone's potential, get married to someone who already has a solid foundation in the Lord and demonstrates the fruit of being a genuine believer in Christ.
