Welcome to the Peaceful Husband Blog. If you were looking for the Respected Husband Blog you are in the right place. For a long time we have been considering moving the blogs from WordPress.com to a self hosted site. We felt that with my wife’s book (The Peaceful Wife: Living in Submission to Christ as Lord) coming out in January that we wanted to have some more flexibility on what we could have on the blogs, a more professional website appearance, and have the potential to reach a larger audience.
We reached out to a Christian blogging giant in Brent Riggs to help us get up and going. I have Brent’s information up in the side bar for the Linky Blog and he is offering a free website to any of you who follow the link. Just let him know that you came from the Peaceful Husband Blog. You can find out more information by following the link.
The new blog theme we will be using gives us a lot of flexibility to do some really neat things. I plan to try to post more often and do a variety of different types of post on the new blog. Please bear with us as we will be fine tuning the site a good bit through the first couple of weeks.
So, why the name change from Respected Husband? In moving from wordpress.com I needed to purchase a domain name and unfortunately www.respectedhusband.com was already taken and being used on another site. A lot of people mistook the Respected Husband name as somehow saying I should be respected or demanded to be respected instead of the real meaning that I was respected by wife even though I often do not deserve it. After considering several replacement names I chose to go with the Peaceful Husband blog. It fits with our other sites www.peacefulwife.com and www.peacefulsinglegirl.com.
Feel free to explore the site. Thanks for stopping by.
