What Healthy Spiritual Leadership Looks Like in Marriage - Hint: It's Not a Power Trip

What Healthy Spiritual Leadership Looks Like in Marriage - Hint: It's Not a Power Trip

There is great controversy among Christians surrounding the verses about wives submitting to their husbands, as well as great misunderstanding about what healthy masculinity looks like. And while I will do my best to answer the why and the how when it comes to what healthy spiritual leadership looks like, I want to first make it clear that just because someone is the “leader” of the home, does not make them better, more valuable, or more loved by God.

Fennel Prosciutto and Melon Salad

Fennel Prosciutto and Melon Salad Recipe

When we went on our last trip to Elba, we made a sailing trip provided at the harbor about 10 min from our Airbnb. Included on this all day adventure was a delicious meal, cooked by our very own Captain of the sailboat. 

He was a simple man, from Parma (where Parmesan cheese came from) and cooked us his family recipes, learned from only the best…his Italian mother. It’s not like this was anything complicated or time-consuming, but like all Italian food, it was simple and honestly delicious. It was a fennel salad. In and of itself, fennel has a particular taste that is hard to compliment but paired with the right things; it comes alive.

I am going to show you how to make my version of the salad. His was pretty straightforward, which paired well with our pasta and sauce he made with it. I tried something a little more sustainable as to make it a whole, light, and healthy meal in and of itself.
