One of the requirements to be a self-appointed godly woman is you have to put some time in having a crappy attitude in your marriage. The more time the better. If you are bitchy for the first five years of your marriage, well that is worth something, but not as much as saying the following:
“My heart is full today, Lori. I’ve been married for 35 years. (The first two decades of that were pretty rotten because of my own attitude.).”
Its like the more time you put in with a past bad attitude, the more godly you are today. This story matches Lori’s and you see it often enough. The narrative is always the same–“I was a bitch till God saved me, now I am an amazing wife and I am going to blog all about my awesomeness”.
