Editorial Reviews

Review

"Zabriskie's range of anecdotes is impressive and memorable. WIFE FOR LIFE is a solid and entertaining foray into the real work and joys of what a woman must do to create and maintain a loving, communicative, and dedicated life-long partnership."- IndieReader 

"For any woman out there who wants to be a good wife and have a long and happy marriage, this book will tell you why and it will tell you how at the same time." - Reader's Favorite International

"Ramona Zabriskie's guide to a good marriagefocuses on building empathy between partners and patching up misunderstandingsthat might arise over the course of marriage--essentially you'll be betterequipped to make compromises and work as a team thanks to her wise words. This can be helpful not just for married couples, but anyone in a relationship. It's time to patch things up for the new year!" - Huffington Post

"What makes Wife for Life so successful and so memorable is that Zabriskie does not sugarcoat anything and speaks to women about EVERYTHING. Along with speaking directly to herreaders, Zabriskie has a wonderful way of telling stories. Her voice ispleasant and witty and passionate, making Wife for Life a veryfun and easy book to read. The many stories and pieces of advice Zabriskieshare are not, in the slightest, overwhelming, but quite enriching. Wife for Life is a book that must be marked in and one that must be read from cover to cover; no skipping and no skimming should be allowed in order for a reader to take away the best possible experience." - Examiner.com

"Wife for Life is the best marriage book I have ever read--and I've read a lot of them!...This book is a collection of Ramona's horrifying mistakes (her poor husband!), inspiring lessons learned (her lucky husband!), and is chock full of examples that anyone who's been in a relationship can relate to. It is by turns entertaining, cringe-inducing, and full of lessons that go straight to your heart." - The Power of Moms

About the Author

Ramona Zabriskie's given name means "wise counselor" in Spanish, "mighty defender" in German, and "dreamer" in Arabic. All three come together in Wife for Life: The Power to Succeed in Marriage. Known for her empathy, passion, and humor, Ramona's motivational speaking has taken her all over the country, from classrooms to stages, from chapels to college campuses, for over twenty years. She began focusing her live presentations on understanding men and marriage in 2008 in addition to writing three internationally popular blogs on the subject. Her subsequent personal involvement with readers and audiences from all over the world led to her work as a mentor and to the serious research and writing that became Wife for Life. The author is a Kirkus Indie Reader Discovery Awards, Reader's Favorite International Book Awards, National Indie Excellence Awards, and USA Best Book Awards winner . She also won the American Night Writer's Association's BOB Contest in 2012, and in 2010 was honored with the Deseret Dramatic Cultural Arts Award. Prior to Wife for Life, Ramona spent thirty years writing and directing for the performing arts and chaired a number of service organizations and events focused on women, teens, and disability advocacy. She is the mother of four and wife-for-life to Dale Zabriskie, international keynoter and corporate evangelist. Her husband, children, in-law children, and grandchildren are her biggest fans and have all contributed their varied and professional talents to Wife for Life. Though the Zabriskies raised their family in Orlando, Florida and have lived in London, England for a time; Ramona is actually a sixth generation Pacific-Northwestener. The couple now lives in their southwest Washington dream home, just over the river and through the woods from Portland, Oregon. ramonazabriskie.com --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read
Reviewed in Canada on November 14, 2018
I heard about this author at the mom online conference and started her online program, but decided to get the book. At first I thought it was too old fashion, but applying the principles she explains made my husband ask what happened to the wife from the past 6 years and that whatever I am doing he welcomes the change. This was after I only adjusted one or two things I sometimes do. It is really eye opening and concise way to learn about the man you want to love. This is a must read for new wives and those looking for answers on how to have a legacy marriage. I thought I was already a pretty good wife but this book has helped me realize different ways I slowly break my husbands spirit.
