For Wendy Magee, it was a rather awe-inspiring, exuberant poem, one that had ultimately changed the overall landscape of her life.
“My husband and I attend a marriage retreat annually and, in August 2015, a couple was reading a poem during the renewing of their vows and she said, ‘I will call you lord,'” Magee recalled.
Interestingly, as Magee, a Port Arthur, Texas native who resides in nearby New Orleans, explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, such an intriguing encounter prompted her companion, David Magee, to pose a forthright inquiry, of sorts.
“Well, of course, my husband asked me if I would call him lord, and I immediately said no,” Magee said.
Little did she know, God had other strategic ideas, particularly as it relates to what unfolded during that retreat.
“Then a few weeks went by, and the Lord begin to reveal to me in scripture why Sarah called Abraham lord,” Magee recalled. “I was excited about the revelation. My husband said I need to write a book.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
That’s because less than a half-year later — five months to be technical — Magee had appropriately obeyed the Voice of God by way of her husband’s revelation by composing the book entitled, “And She Called Him Lord.”

A self-published written document she began assembling approximately a month after the 2015 retreat and is forwarded by her husband, Magee’s “And She Called Him Lord” made its much-anticipated presence on the market on January 8, 2016.
A book that is comprised of 88 pages, Magee’s “And She Called Him Lord” was designed for both married couples and couples who aspire to become married.
How else to explain the million dollar question as mentioned in a detailed description of Magee’s book at Amazon.com?
“Are you married or desire to be married?” according to an Amazon spokesperson for Magee’s book. “Learn to overcome the fear of submission, how to have a marriage without arguments, and experience the love of God that will enhance intimacy. This book will be your road map to making sound and Godly choices in your marriage. My prayer is that by the end of this book you will allow the peace of God to rule your heart and your home.”
By and large, Magee’s book explains in great details why submission is especially vital and essential for both the man and woman.
“(This book is) for people — men and women, married or single — to get an understanding of the word submission, and to know it’s not a bad word,” said Magee, explaining her mission for producing her first book. “(It is) for people to understand the order of family, how God ordained it, and why it’s important for that order and the respect of positions — for both husband and wife — to be respected.”
For what it’s worth, Magee’s first book undoubtedly aligns with the purpose for which God created her, as well as her more than a decade-long marriage to David.
Interestingly, Magee and her husband work collectively with youth and young adults through his non-profit called H.Y.P.E., whereby they are afforded the golden opportunity to address a variety of issues, most notably interpersonal skills and relationship enhancing.
“If they cannot see a godly marriage in front of them, what hope do they have? My husband and I cannot minister to people and our home is in chaos,” Magee explained. “We made a decision to invest in our marriage by attending the marriage conference annually and take our words to heart about submission and loving each other unconditionally.
“We have to be a beacon light, and show people that submission works,” Magee added. “I, as a wife and mother, have to show the young women coming behind me that it’s possible to be a submissive wife, godly mother, and not allow anyone to abuse or take advantage of them. God also showed me through HYPE’s program that I enjoy making people’s vision a reality. So through that I’m working on starting a business (called Optimize Y.O.U., or Your Own Uniqueness), which is geared to help business owners with virtual assistance and people looking to start a business.”
As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “And She Called Him Lord,” Magee said, “Marriage is reserved for a husband, wife, and God. The husband has to submit to God in order to get his consistent instructions concerning leading his family. The wife must submit — come under his mission — and follow his leadership.”
All of which practically sums up why this book is ever so prevalent, especially in the modern-day church, where the divorce rate is seemingly at an all-time high.
“If you desire to get married, let this book be a road-map to making godly decisions about your relationship,” Magee said.
Much to her delight, Magee has announced that Book No. 2 is presently in the works and is scheduled to be released this summer. The title: “You are Unique: Embrace It.”
As for her itinerary, during which she will be able to share more about hers books, Magee will be a guest speaker for Tote the Destiny: Life Skills Expo in Jacksonville, Arkansas, an event that is exclusively for young girls.
“I believe it’s important for young ladies during their teenage years to understand how unique they are and now it’s the time to practice submitting their life to God,” said Magee, whose books and shirts can be purchased at the following sites:
