How Do I Communicate
How should I deal with a person who sees me as less then Godly, because, I have had to take up the role or head of the house and be strong. This person seems to think that I am out of God's will when I step up where others don't.

No other person on the face of this earth can know when you are out of God's will.What they are actually saying is you are out of God's will according to their perception of what that will is based on their personal religious beliefs.You pray for God's will and hear only from Him,then act on His directions.Tell them thank you,but you don't want their opinion you are depending on God.Be strong in the Lord as you walk hand in hand with Him to do what you must.

No, that would not take u out of will of God. Perhaps you should tell this person that your role in your home is between you and God. If someone else will not step up to be the head someone has to. I am single mom so am head of home. When married I had no choice but to be head as well.

Let me give you an answer from a "man's" point. We men, for the most part, have failed miserably in our duties to our families, through our failures to our God. When a woman finds a need that is not being filled, and she feels that God would have her step in, Praise God! for her willingness to do so, even with all of the "nay-sayers" who would condemn, but, not do anything else to solve the problem. Do your part as unto the Lord, and shame on the menfolk for their failure.

Thanx for clarifying your situation. Please don't let others opinions of your response to God's call to teach children's church. What you do is yours, God's, and the pastor's business. There is no greater call from God than to teach the next generation of believers. Just smile at "this person" and happily let it go. There are ALWAYS those who wish to stick their nose in where it does not belong! It takes two to make a problem!! Bless you for your obedience.

Usually we women are more than glad when our husband's "step up to bat" and take on the husband/father role; however when they want to neglect that part of their Godly responsibilities who else is going to do but the wife? Understand your problem but don't let others dictate!

The only role of head of house I make up is my husband told me to be in charge of "spiritual/biblical"things since his work schedule prevents him to attend church.He told me I am the stay at home mother (our choice, not just his)& since I care for their wellbeing everyday I can take care of them at church. So I stay within my Godly "bounds",but he is still head of house in all other areas.

If men are not stepping up, should women fill in for them? I have seen men up in arms over women filling needed rolls, but, why aren't they filling the roll them selves instead of complaning?

Read Phil. 4:13. I am there with you and I know that what you are going through is difficult. I have had to step up and have done things I never would have thought I could. I credit my Lord and Savior. He will provide strength. Many times, stepping up is not what I would have chosen, but what I have had to do. I try to think of it as God strengthening my character. Hang in there!

Here are a list of questions that I have before giving you anywhere near an accurate answer. 1. This person who sees you less than Godly, are they a person who is a legal relative or just a busy body. 2. Was this responsibilty as head of the house delegated to you by your spouce, or did you just take it? See no reason why you can't, "step up where's others don't", as long as it's done in a Christian manner, based what the Bible states.
