"So many women struggle with their role as Christian wives, wondering how to achieve the marriage they've always dreamed of. With keen insight and compassion, Jen Weaver paints a realistic picture of biblical womanhood as it relates to marriage."
"As a man I want to know who let 'The' Jen Weaver in on the secret thoughts and questions all men share about the mysteries related to our wives? Her insight into our world is very telling, and the way she casually demystifies it all in broad daylight is going to strongly help marriages. As a Pastor, I have to say I am very proud of Jen and the work, research, prayer, and reflection she has put into the book; it is filled with good writing, scriptural accuracy, healthy perspective, and positive encouragement."
Allan Kelsey, Assoc. Sr. Pastor, Gateway Church
"Jen Weaver is absolutely wonderful. I love her heart for marriage and her message in A Wife's Secret to Happiness. The combination of biblical wisdom and practical resources make it a must read!"
Alli Worthington, author of Breaking Busy: Finding Peace and Purpose in A World of Crazy
"This book is a beautiful symphony of the practical, spiritual, and applicable. Jen brilliantly weaves practical tips, including quizzes that test your 'wifestyle,' with honest examples, spiritual revelation, and realistic expectations. This book also contains amazing articles for application which only enhance the reading experience. As a therapist, many resources only contain pieces or parts that are useful; A Wife's Secret to Happiness is the full package. The reader is able to read any chapter in this book and gain valuable knowledge, insight, and practical application. I am excited to suggest it to my clients!"
Cassie Reid, PhD, LPC-S, Lead Counselor, Cassie Reid Counseling
"This book made me laugh, cry, consider, and challenge myself to celebrate the gift of marriage in new ways. Jen's voice settles on you like a gracious friend across the kitchen table who loves you just because. Her wisdom, experience, and passion sink deep into the ink of every page, layering this book with the rich soil of God's loving and life-giving plan for marriage."
Kasey Van Norman, bestselling author of Named by God and Raw Faith
From the Inside Flap
The path to marital happiness is different than you think. When our plans for marriage improvement begin with ''If my husband would . . .'' or ''If, as a couple, we could . . .'' we're missing the secret.
Despite her man's flaws and failures, the Lord plans to bless a wife's marriage through her husband. A Wife's Secret to Happiness shares eleven powerful, practical blessings that God wants to pour into your lap like sweet spiritual confetti, and the wifestyle habits that will attract or reject this divine provision.
No matter your title--from stay-at-home mom to business executive to ministry leader--you can celebrate God's role for you as a wife and learn how to:
- Embrace vibrant marital roles without getting stuck in gender ruts
- Reduce stress and busyness by building intimacy and strength
- Boost love, support, and encouragement in your communication
- Deepen your spousal connection so you won t feel alone
- Restore dreams for your life with your spouse
Through thoughtful exploration of biblical promises, humorous hope-filled stories, and compelling testimonies, Jen shares how God empowers her life as a submissive millennial wife, and inspires readers to experience the same freedom.

"If I want a Godly husband, I'd stop disqualifying him from the leadership role in my life and encourage him to walk in it." I have been parked on this quote for a couple of weeks now. I can't get it out of my mind. I can't get it out of my heart. I find myself wondering if this is me. Am I disqualifying my husband from his leadership role in my life? Am I robbing him of what God called him to do? How can I do better? How can I encourage him to walk in this role God designed him for?
I have an extremely hard time watching tv. It's not that I don't like watching tv, it's that it is so hard to find shows that do not present an overbearing wife and a doormat husband. I start out watching a show because, of course the commercials look interesting. Then minutes in, the wife is treating her husband like a child, calling him names, or treating him as though he were stupid. I quickly turn it off. I see it in real life too. Wives bossing husbands around. Wives putting their husbands down to their friends. Wives yelling at their husbands as though they were one of their children. Wives acting like they rule it all and save the day while their husbands sit by as if they were nothing but a big doofus. I cringe and feel embarrassed for the husband as I look at his eyes and see the hurt and embarrassment. Jen Weaver says in her brand new book A Wife's Secret to Happiness, "Nothing harms a man's credibility more than a corrective wife. She expects him to blow it, sitting in wait for her chance to save the day." Jen also says, "We think of these statements as inconsequential, passing words soon forgotten, But they can plague our men and discredit them to others, because anything we mock relates to an area our men need built up." What if instead of mocking our husbands, instead of acting as though he can't put bread and butter together for toast, instead of correcting him, instead of bossing him around, we would encourage him? What if we would lift him up? What if we would praise him?
