My hubby believes he is meant to be a preacher. We cannot afford schooling right now besides he does not have the time. I want to support him and help him but what can I do? He knows his Bible very well and has lots of study bibles. He is very knowledgeable and can easily detect false teachings. He is good at researching things. Are there some books or courses that he can get so he can just study on his own? Preferably something that can count towards a degree.

    Dear Beth,
    I would politely ask you to take your question to Please understand this is a site for young girls to ask questions of the older women. Biblically, we cannot advise the older women. I have seen many women asking questions on this site and I have asked my mother about it. We were both surprised to see that young women are advising the older women. This is not Biblical and is unwise.
    Please, don’t think me of ungrateful or angry, Beth. I just don’t feel right about young women guiding you.
    I’m sorry if I sound impertinent, I assure you this was not my intention!

    Look into ISOM (International School of Ministry)

    It’s not super expensive and you can do it online. My parents, brother, and I have all graduated and gotten our Associates through them. My Dad and I did it with a group at church, Mom and brother online.

    Sally-Ann, is there actually a blog available for married women on Created? I looked over that section and did not see anywhere to post questions and comments, other than sending them in an email to No Greater Joy. All of those emails (to my knowledge) are answered in generic form unless there is a pressing and dangerous issue.
    As a new wife, I would prefer to use a blog for married women, but I was hoping I might be able to lend some advice to ladies who will marry someday.
    Beth, I am in a similar situation with my husband. He very much wants to be a blacksmith someday, but we cannot afford the schooling, even with both of us working full-time right now. I would simply recommend prayer–lots and lots of prayer–directed mostly toward the health and well-being of your husband, that God would raise him up to be a faithful servant of Christ. Perhaps online courses will be the solution. However, realizing that we serve a really big God, be ready to move when your prayers are answered! Be vigilant so that you will not miss the opportunities God will bring your way as a result of your prayer. I’ll be praying for you, and I am so glad to hear that there is another man willing to answer God’s call. God bless you both!
