This is a topic I have wanted to write about for some time. But it seems to be one of those things that – the more I learn, the more I realize I don’t know. I don’t feel prepared to write my own article yet, but I want to help women learn their role as the ezer kenegdo, which is the Hebrew often translated helpmeet or helpmate. It means so much more in the Hebrew, and often suprises me as I learn more about the Hebrew view of a woman and wife. Having a better understanding of this concept has been life-changing in my marriage. Yes, that is our wedding picture. I want the same for you. So, here is a collection of articles, books and anything else I could find to help you better understand the ezer kenegdo.
