Husbands Really Are the Spiritual Leaders

Robert Lewis keyed into something today (in Men's Fraternity) that Dobson first clued me into a few years ago when I read Bringing Up Boys: The husband is the spiritual head of the home.

That's not just a "I wish it were true" statement. It is true, at least in most homes. As goes the father in the home, so goes the family.

Lewis cited a study that produced the following results:
  • If 100 individual children start attending a church, around 20 families will eventually follow.
  • If 100 individual wives start attending a church, around 20 families will eventually follow.
  • If 100 individual husbands start attending a church, about 97 families will eventually follow.
For God has so wired homes.
