This book, along with the study guide, has taught me way to improve my marriage. It does not teach you how to change anyone but yourself! Something wonderful happens when your strive to make positive and godly changes within yourself as a woman and wife. Those around you, including your husband, begin to strive in positive directions as well! Positive change will occur in both the lives of yourself and your husband. This will trickle down into the rest of your family and even your friends and acquaintances.
This book can be a beautiful experience for you. I highly recommend going through it with both your bible and the study guide. Don't just take my word on it, discover it for yourself what it's like to have a truly blessed and happy marriage.
I have been married for two years, and have been a Christian for eighteen years. Needless to say, I thought I had it all figured out. I thought my husband and I would have this perfect, godly relationship and we'd live happily ever after. Then I realized that husband's don't always meet expectations. I am a stubborn person, and unfortunately that can make me condescending, jealous, and controlling at times. When I give in to my insecurities, I find that those awful characteristics can really have a grip on me and in return, can hurt my husband.
I purchased this book because I have a true longing to be a loving wife, and I wanted some insight. This book offers very detailed, loving advice and guidance for women who may not be feeling up to par in their marriage, and women who are struggling with the expectations that we have for our husbands.
My favorite feature a list at the end of each chapter that has practical application for each topic addressed. It has been my goal to implement at least one of these aspects from each chapter into my life. I like that the author provides options - it doesn't make sense for all of us to do the same things - and having several ideas of how to improve yourself and your marriage allows for us to make choices that may get us out of our comfort zone, but will ultimately bless our marriage.
The best thing about this book is that it is 100% based on what the Bible says. I can't understand why too many people would be critical of this book - the Bible has clear guidelines about how to be a loving, Christian wife and Elizabeth George provides a wonderful resource to supplement what we already know to be true through the word of God.
