Editorial Reviews

Review

"Life's major accomplishments are made one step at a time. 31 days is not long, but if you take daily steps you will make progress. Arlene Pellicane has walked the road and shares practical ideas on how to become a happy wife. I highly recommend this book to all wives who aspire for something better."
Gary Chapman, PhD, author of The Five Love Languages


"This book captured my heart. Page after page holds real-life examples of ordinary women who discovered freedom, joy, and adventure through the challenging seasons of marriage. This book is filled with wisdom and inspires hope for wives and points us to the powerful and transformative love of Christ. Thank you, Arlene!"
Lynn Donovan, speaker and author of Winning Him Without Words


"In this helpful and insightful new book, popular speaker and author Arlene Pellicane explains the awesome power of a happy wife. As with her other books, Arlene is positive, encouraging, specific—and talks about real life and real issues. Making the choice to become a happy wife will radically transform your world!"
David and Lisa Frisbie, executive directors, The Center for Marriage and Family Studies


"If you have ever longed for a better marriage, read this book. Arlene Pellicane masterfully unwraps five specific ways we can increase our happiness as wives. This book is filled with captivating examples, riveting interviews, biblical truth, practical action steps, and common sense advice. It's powerful to read alone, but even better when used as a group study with other wives who sincerely desire positive change."
Carol Kent, speaker and author of Becoming a Woman of Influence


"Arlene Pellicane's message is every bit as clear, bright, cheerful, and wise as she is. Whether you're a newlywed or you've been married for ages, you'll find valuable, practical advice here. The daily format makes it easy to read, absorb, and apply the truths Arlene offers, and the examples from her own marriage and others' are honest, often funny, and genuinely helpful. Loved it!"
Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of The Girl's Still Got It


"Have you ever wanted to become a happy or even a happier wife? Maybe the key is for your husband to make some changes. Or maybe, just maybe, it has very little to do with him and a whole lot to do with you. If you're willing to apply the concepts presented in Arlene Pellicane's new book, you can become what you've wanted to become...a happy wife (and it may take only 31 days!)."
Kendra Smiley, speaker, radio host, and author of Live Free


"Arlene relates to every wife in this inspiring, fun-to-read book that I couldn't put down. If you're ready to become a happy wife, and make the most of your marriage, she'll get you there in 31 days...guaranteed!"
Cindi McMenamin, speaker and author of When Women Walk Alone


"Arlene empowers women with an important life-changing truth. You do have a choice not only on the actions you take but the attitudes you embrace. Many wives feel stuck in their marital unhappiness and can't find a way out. 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife gives them a way out—practically, biblically, and winsomely."
Leslie Vernick, counselor, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage


"It's one thing to say 'I'm happy' and another thing to radiate happiness. I know Arlene and her husband, and they emit joy and epitomize the 'happily ever after' we all long for. 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife really is an adventure, a path, a roadmap to a happy life! Arlene will help you find joy and satisfaction with practical, biblical advice and lots of ideas to make you smile."
Pam Farrel, author of 38 books, including Men Are Like Waffles—Women Are Like Spaghetti

Format: Paperback
I thought I didn't need this book. Most days, if someone asked me if I were a happy wife, I would reply with a rousing, "Sure am!" But I wonder, if the same question were asked of my husband, if he would be so rousingly sure. Would he say that on a regular basis I was, "Hopeful, Adaptable, Positive, Purposeful, and Yielded"? I may be able to smile and keep things under the rug, but the aforementioned quality traits are what makes me a sincerely happy wife. Not only that, becoming a wife who is Hopeful, Adaptable, Positive, Purposeful, and Yielded takes the undue pressure off of my husband, whose job is NOT my happiness (providing and guiding is hard enough)!

Reading Arlene Pellicane's book, 31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife, I realized that happiness does not come from my circumstances or what my husband does for me, but from my attitude and outlook, and especially my faith in God, who is my true and lasting source of happiness. Each day and with every circumstance, when I take my eyes off of my human husband and put them onto Christ, my heart is full, soft, satisfied, and consequently, sweetly overflowing to my husband and family. What I love about Arlene's book is that she not only turns my eyes to Christ for the happiness I need, she then turns turns my eyes to my husband, so that I see, respond to, and pursue him with a happy heart.

The chapters are meant to be read as an enjoyable, one-a-day vitamin that builds us up to become more of what Christ has made us to be as wives. I love that it's entitled, "Becoming..." because as we look to Jesus, scripture says we "are transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another" (2 Cor 3:18).

Good book and not to much to take on at once. Focuses on self help and becoming a stronger partner. Ideas are realistic and not to aggressive.

Format: Paperback
Arlene's Books always remind me that I am in charge of my choices, reactions, and feelings. My husband is not responsible for making me happy. I know not all husbands are like mine but I have found that when I do try to serve him and give him things he wants , he tries to serve me and give me things I want. I also know that just cause I am angry with him and he is in the doghouse, I can still be happy. I may not be happy with him But I can be happy overall. I love the thoughts and prayers at the end of each chapter. I look forward to using this book for a women's small group study.

Arlene does it again. She provides great humor and practical wisdom combined with scriptural reference and prayers of hope for each section of her book. All of her titles should be on your shelf and they make great gifts for all the women in your life.

Format: Paperback
31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife by Arlene Pellicane is a practical and insightful book for wives to embrace. Every chapter begins with a Bible verse and a true (and sometimes funny story) that Arlene shares to illustrate her point. She takes the acronym HAPPY and writes 31 short chapters filled with wisdom, guidance and balance for a wife to ultimately make the choice in how she will choose happiness. These are the keys to happiness. HAPPY stands for Hopeful, Adaptable, Positive, Purposeful and Yielded. Take the marriage quiz at the beginning and determine if you are a happy wife. Each chapter ends with a picture for you to create in your mind and a prayer. There is also a discussion guide included that would be a great study for many happy wives!

Arlene's candid and personal approach to expressing her views are very engaging. I agree with her approach to marriage and I highly value what she shares in light of God's Word. She makes me think differently about marriage, myself and my husband. Arlene is honest and practical in this new book that will help wives to truly strive to be a happy wife. What a refreshing and delightful book to read!

Format: Paperback
Arlene has written an incredible guide for women seeking God's best for their marriage. She uses everyday language full of humor, wisdom, practical tips and prayers for the day. Openly sharing of occasional struggles with her own husband James (which usually bring a smile) her candor is a great look at the ups and downs of a good, solid marriage.

Life can be hard. It isn't always roses & champagne. Covering a wide variety of subjects, the honesty in Arlene's writing is a refreshing look at pursuing a godly marriage and building a stronger home.

31 Days to Becoming a Happy Wife is a beautiful book to give to women for Valentine's Day, as a wedding gift, or on any occasion. It would also be a perfect book to use as a small group study with your church's women's group. I highly recommend it!

I Love this book! It is a great resource for wives but also for all women. My small group is going through this book together and I have a few gals who aren't married yet - but are still finding the ideas practical and applicable. I especially love that it is a daily reading - it gives encouragement for the day and helps us stay plugged into a daily devotional. As a wife and mom, I need the daily encouragement and principles to keep me focused and help me feel "normal" - it's good to know that the things I struggle with are shared by other ladies and there is a way to see the light in the middle of the craziness.

I definitely recommend this book and know you will be able to apply it to your life and marriage as well.
