I know there are plenty of women who read this book and found inspiration and hope for their situations. I love that the book is faith-based and I love that the author truly seems empathetic. Some of the things said in this book made me feel like my feelings about working full-time and then being at home alone for 6 months a year while married,taking care of two kids and keeping a lovely and loving home together were insignificant compared to any most recent Friday night score. At one point, I think the book told me to get over my selfish concepts of family and I threw it away, in the trash. I never finished the book.

I found this book to be so encouraging! My husband gave me this book when he took his first college coaching job and it has been a constant reminder of all the great things about our lifestyle every time I have read it. I would recommend this book to any wife looking for encouragement, tips on supporting your coach or simply someone needing a window into the world of coaching well together.
