Welcome to Hope for Wives

With your co-hostesses:

Listen now:

Today, we are discussing how to handle anger in a responsible way.

Anger is a part of our make-up as human beings and God put it there. God, himself, displays anger throughout the Bible.

Anger is a part of the threat response when we face a traumatic experience. We either fight, flee or freeze. That fight part is anger.

Anger is also a part of the grief process. We are angry at the injustice of our losses.

The Christian community has a complicated relationship with anger because, let’s face it, anger is hard to navigate in a godly way.

We Will be Discussing:

  • What comes up for you ladies, when thinking about your own story and how anger played a part?
  • What purpose does anger serve a betrayed wife?
  • When is the line crossed and anger becomes a sin?
  • What hope can we leave our listeners about anger?

Resources mentioned in this show:

Scripture references:

Ephesians 4:26

Ephesians 4:26

    I just found you wonderful ladies! I’m in a 32 yr marriage and my husband is now seriously engaging in his recovery. We have 4 children- Three still at home and the youngest is 18. My husband and I are basically roommates. My heart feels no love or longing for him anymore. We are cordial and enjoy outside activities together. He has hopes for restoration but I don’t feel it can happen. I don’t want to be a divorced woman or breakup the family. I’ve searched your episodes and can’t find one that addresses this. Can you discuss this dynamic on an upcoming episode please?
