Format: Paperback
Linda Dillow's book should be required reading of every Christian wife ! Especially helpful for those with children, Dillow addresses submission, priorities, and putting the ZIP back into your love life, amoung other topics. Very easy read, thought-provoking, encouraging, motivating. It's like having a mentor over for tea. I've read many Christian -authored books on marriage; this is THE practical and Bible-centered "how-to" guide for a wife. If I had nothing else on my shelves except Creative Counterpart and my Bible - my library would be complete! This book has changed my marriage, and deepened my Walk immeasureably. Buy it NOW and start pouring over each chapter. Bravo, and thank you to Mrs. Dillow!!!

Format: Paperback
I have read nearly a dozen books on growing as a wife and/or mother in the past two years, and this is by far the best overall book I have come accross. Dillow writes in a very concise, purposeful and poignant way. Dillow consitently writes the best study questions I have seen in women's books. They are thoughtful, challenging and always very practical. Dillow is both practical and deeply theological.

Chapter 4, called "priority planner" provides the best organizational scheme for ordering your daily life and home that I have seen. I have always been very organized, but Dillows plan took my daily routine to another level - a much more peaceful and fruitful one. I especially recommend this book for moms with several small children who have very little time, or with women who are making home their full time job for the first time and need some help learning how to self manage their time 24-7.

I suggest grabbing your best friend or two and reading this book together, following the study guide in the back. Most of us need the accountability and friendship to process the deep and challenging things that Dillow presents in this classic book. This book would work very well as a curriculum for a church class. Our church also uses it for 1 - 1 mentorship.

Format: Paperback
I found this book very helpful in re-evaluating the way I treat my husband. In today's society, the word "submissive" is often defined as synonymous with "doormat." However, Linda Dillow's description of submission and how it works in a marriage was enlightening to me. I am already seeing a difference in my marriage, and I feel more at peace with my role as a Christian wife.

I did enjoy this book, however I only gave 4/5 stars because it did not focus much on becoming the "Mother You Have Longed to Be." It did had many good points about being a "creative counterpart" in relation to being a wife.

Format: Paperback
I can't get enough of this book! I'm amazed that the first copyright of this book was over 25 years ago! What amazing wisdom to be able to keenly right for wives back then that still holds true today. Linda Dillow does a fabulous job of combining pratical wisdom in balancing life with the need to realize that God is fully in control. With two toddlers living in my house, I found the Priority Planner to be a saving grace for balancing all my roles. And her straightforward speaking about our attitudes toward our husbands was eye-opening and humbling. I'm sorry for the wife above who was beaten by her husband, but I do not believe that it was a product of this book. Integrating the suggestions from this book will not make you a doormat; you must trust God to protect you from that. But it will free you up to live according to what His scripture dictates. Very practical and insightful. Thank you Mrs. Dillow for your wisdom and advice!

Format: Paperback
I strongly recomend this book to anyone that is getting married, to those that are. This book has completely changed my marriage for the better. It has given me a new understanding of what submission is and isn't. I have learned how to be a positive influence in my marriage instead of setting myself up for disaster. I have a lot of improving left to do but I now have the tools that I need to improve my relationship with not only my husband but with God as well. Before reading this book I was unsure of my role as a wife and mother. I wanted to be a contributer not a burden, but didn't know how. Now that I have read this book I know what God wants for me and my marriage. I know it won't happen over night but I am willing to try.

Great book! Gave me insight and a totally different perspective on the roles in my life as a wife, woman and mother. My husband and I have been together for almost 15 years and I feel like really absorbing what's taught in this book, and allowing myself to change, has changed my marriage and my family for the better. Definitely one to reread every so often as a reminder/to refresh!
Highly recommend!

I used this book for a summer book club with the women from my local church. It has proved to be a wonderful summer growth for us all. Linda Dillow shares some excellent insights and scripture references to help you grow as a "creative counterpart" in Christ for your husband. It deals with our bad attitudes and warped sense of how we view our husbands and how we stand in the way of what God can and promises to do if we just let him. I recommend this book for women who are battling with the "wanting more" and "life isn't what I thought it would be" syndromes. Get this book and learn what God has in store if you just choose HIS way!
