                        influence in your husband’s life.
        Verse:       Proverbs 2:1-6

        Truth:        We are never more like Jesus when we are serving others,  
                        including our husbands.
Verse:       Genesis 2:18

24.    Lie:           If I submit to my husband I will be miserable!

        Verse:       Ephesians 5:21-23

25.    Lie:           If my husband is passive, I’ve got to take the initiative,

                        God cannot change.
Verse:       2 Corinthians 12:9
