Hello! I'm Ashley.

I'm passionate about loving Jesus and partnering with my husband in bring the flavor of His kingdom to the world. I seek to do this through promoting truth-seeking expeditions, advocating gender equality, educating the Church on abuse, and aiding the rescue of men, women and children from spiritual, emotional and physical poverty.

Christian Feminism Weekly: Egalitarian Dating

Christian Feminism Weekly: Egalitarian Dating

Welcome back to Christian Feminism Weekly with Ashley and Charlie!

Today we are going to be talking about our experiences with Egalitarian dating. I'll be talking about my transition out of courtship and Charlie will be talking about her big change from Complementarian dating to Egalitarian dating.

"The Complementarian theology brought a lot of baggage into our relationship because I was taught how a man should act and how a man should be and what a man is... Then I became an Egalitarian and that's when I started seeing Nate differently. Instead of looking at him with all of these Complementarian rules and these gender roles and stereotypes in my mind, I started to see him for who God made him to be. And God made him to be sensitive and emotional and he has a great gift of self-control and all of that makes him who he is... Once I was able to let go of that baggage that came from being taught Complementarian theology I was able to embrace him for who he is and our relationship instantly changed. It became so much more full of life, acceptance, and real love." -Charlie
