Be the neck that turns the head!
Hello, my name is Daphne Crause and I want to welcome you to this website. I am the wife of Les D. Crause, the founder of Apostolic Movement International. He is also the founder and CEO of Global Business Resources International, using the name of Bill Yinaire for this venture.
Les and I have been married for over 20 years now, and it has been a wonderful experience. Along the way I have learned so much, especially when it comes to how to be a wife who backs her husband fully, whether he is in ministry or business.
There is a saying that goes like this:
The husband is the head of the home, but the wife is the neck that turns the head.
I don’t think there is ever a more true statement than this, especially when it comes to helping your husband to rise up and be the best. It is my desire to share with you the simple things that you can do to back him and support him and be the best wife for him.
Holding A Conversation With God
Hundreds of books have been written on the subject of prayer, but there are still very few believers who have a prayer life that is exciting and brings results. That is because not many people have learned to have a good conversation with God
When you hear someone say, "The Lord told me", do you think they are being super spiritual and trying to impress you? Who can pray in such an intimate way with God Himself? Surely you have to be extremely spiritual and righteous before you could think of getting close enough to God to hold a conversation?
A Little History
Since Les and I were married we have experienced many different scenarios relating to ministry and business.
When we were first married we both had full time jobs so it was a pretty busy time for us. When we got back home at the end of the day I began to ask him how his day was. He began to open up and share with me, and I started to see the power that there was in just listening to him. It wasn’t only one sided though, and soon I started sharing what was going on at my job too.
During this time we also became involved in a ministry over the weekends. And so I had the chance to get my feet wet and learn how to follow him in the ministry.
We continued to work in our day jobs, but then I left and fell pregnant with my son, so I no longer worked. A while later Les was able to quit his job too and went into his own business doing freelance computer programming. He did this up until the time the Lord called us to come to Mexico and we ended up doing full-time ministry.
As you can see, the Lord has taken us through each possible scenario. And as a result I want to be able to share from my experience in every area that I can.
