About This Episode

About Peggy:

Peggy is a writer, story-teller, self-proclaimed bibliophile, and mediocre advice-giver. When she isn’t digging her way to the bottom of a peanut butter jar or walking around Vancouver with her camera, she’s analyzing and over-analyzing relationship dynamics, cognitive and behavioural patterns, as well as her life choices. She recently completed her undergrad in English Literature at UBC, where she was a mental health columnist for the student newspaper, The Ubyssey. You can find her Mind Your Mind articles on The Ubyssey blog. She’s currently working on her first book, to be finished when she can stop overthinking her ideas!

I hope that you enjoy our conversation but do note that there is some adult language so when listening, it’s best to pop on those headphones!

Episode 30 – Being a Traditional Wife

In this episode we chat to Nadia La Russa. Nadia describes herself as a “spiritually traditional” wife, meaning that she lives by the bible’s definition of being a wife: ” Wives must submit to their husbands as is fitting in the Lord”. (Colossians 3:18). Nadia explains what this means and how it works for her relationship and how it doesn’t mean that she isn’t a feminist.
