There was a time when author Sandy Ralya's marriage was in trouble. She needed help but she was afraid to ask for it. At the time, she didn't know that hundreds of other wives were struggling with the same issues she was. Though Sandy eventually sought guidance from godly mentors and Christian counselors, other women remain silent. Many churches lack ministries and resources to reach out and help these women.
Sandy Ralya founded "Beautiful Womanhood" in 2003 to provide the same nurturing and mentoring that changed her life and her marriage and began to speak to hundreds of women each year. Hearing the stories of women like herself, Sandy realized the need for resources based on practical teaching, sound research, and real-life experiences. The Beautiful Wife uses these inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God's best in her marriage.
Sandy Ralya speaks to hundreds of women each year at MOPS groups, women's retreats, and church leadership conferences across the country and in Canada. Sandy and her husband, Tom, have been married since 1980 and have three grown children and four granddaughters. Sandy bases her ministry near Grand Rapids, Michigan.
From the Publisher
Improve your marriage, not your husband!
The Beautiful Wife uses inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God's best in her marriage. The Beautiful Wife answers serious questions women have about their roles as wives. Discussing everything from romance and money to beauty, communication, and sex, Sandy challenges women to open up and share their journeys so that together they can see God's plan for their marriages. "It is my passion to help women discover God's heart for their marriage, just as the other women helped me," writes Sandy. "When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives, it's a beautiful thing indeed."

Sometimes the difficulty we have in our marriage is minor. Sometimes it's not, but wouldn't it be helpful to have a mentor? -Someone who has struggled and still maintained a godly marriage. Many of us struggle and have no one to go to for advice. We see women who seem happy, but are they, really? Are women putting on a show because they don't want people to know they struggle?
Women can be happily married. They just need to focus on Christ so they can be fulfilled in their marriage, and they need help from someone who has walked the same path. Happily married or not, we all need someone to confide in who will give us godly advice.
Sandy Ralya, critically-acclaimed author and speaker and founder of Beautiful Womanhood, has developed a new curriculum called "The Beautiful Wife" to assist churches in building their own marriage mentoring ministries.
The goal of "The Beautiful Wife" is to enrich your marriage. Ralya helps you understand your role in marriage, guides you by showing you how to focus on the right priorities and also shows you the importance of taking care of yourself. Each chapter contains reflection questions and first steps which can be used in a group or individually.
"The Beautiful Wife Prayer Journal" helps you delve more deeply into each chapter study. Daily prayers and scripture memory verses are included for reinforcement of the weekly readings. The journal also encourages you to receive feedback from your spouse such as prayer requests. It's a good tool to promote honesty and communication in your relationship. By the end of the 12 weeks, you and your husband will be blessed if you are honest with each other and encourage each other along the way.
"The Beautiful Wife Mentor Guide" offers guidelines in how to implement a mentoring ministry and how to lead a small group through "The Beautiful Wife" curriculum. A hostess guide is also included. A guide to each chapter is included with a helpful accountability guide which will encourage your group to stay on track.
People benefit as marriages are strengthened. It took marital problems of her own for Ralya to realize the need for a Christian marriage mentoring ministry for women. Sharing biblical principles, practical tips and inspiring stories from her life, Ralya wants others to be encouraged to look for God's best in their marriage.
