Do you feel trapped in a marriage where you are unhappy and discontent? Are you wondering whatever possessed you to marry that no good so-and-so in the first place? Perhaps you have joyfully accepted his proposal and now you’re having second thoughts about having to keep a clean house, have family dinner everyday, and put up with this guy day in day out. Or perhaps you made your escape from a marriage and can’t fathom going back to that environment of strife and difficulty ever again.
All is not lost! Join me and my guest, Dr. Antoinette Smith, as we challenge you on how and why you should embrace wifely joy!
We discuss issues like….
• Wifely joy! What on earth is that?
• Whether previously married or not, dating or not, why should a single woman worry about wifely joy?
• What about the woman who is married and feeling no joy in her situation; she has most of the household chores that the husband doesn’t help with, kids that he acts like an unwilling babysitter around, financial responsibilities that he ignores. Where does she find wifely joy?
• How do you sustain it?
About Dr. Smith
Dr. Smith is a wife, mother, sister, friend, researcher, and professor. From day one, she has always lived with a purpose and a desire to help others. Her positive, motivating, and engaging mindset emanates from her spirit. She was raised in a loving blended family and now has one of her own. Dr. Smith knows what it is like to step outside your comfort zone, rise to new levels in life, and persevere through the challenges. Her humbleness, love for individuals, experiences with all walks of life, transparency, and wisdom allows her to easily connect with individuals.
Dr. Smith received her PhD from the University of South Florida. She also attended the College of William & Mary as well as Christopher Newport University. She has worked for major corporate and government organizations (e.g., Big 4 accounting firm, the CIA, NASA, the Inspector General, and universities). Surviving as a single parent, excelling in her career, and serving the community are all areas of life that came naturally to Dr. Smith. She, however, lacked the desire, growth, and knowledge of understanding the importance of being capable of balancing both a career and a family that includes a husband. Once she gained this wisdom, she was able to unlock the door that kept her blind to the number of advantages to marriage. Most importantly, she unlocked the door that allowed her to grow to a new level.
Dr. Smith’s research has been published in premier journals, such as The Accounting Review, the Journal of Information Systems, Decision Sciences, and the International Journal of Accounting Information Systems. She is also a speaker, presenting her work worldwide.
She is the recipient of many awards, scholarships, and grants, including Honorary Recipient of the PricewaterhouseCoopers Auditing Alchemy Inc. Grant, the Russell Ewald Award for Academic Excellence and Human Service, the Institute of Internal Auditors–Michael J. Barrett Doctoral Dissertation Award, The PhD Project, and the Florida Education Fund.
In her first book, You Are More Than What Meets The Eye: The Independent Woman’s Guide to Becoming Wifely Material, Dr. Smith believes that both women and their husbands (future or current) will benefit. She is from the Hampton Roads area and currently resides in South Florida.
