    This book explores how we can use the fruit of the Spirit in our daily lives as wives. You might say this book is a guidebook for wives to employ in their marriage to strengthen the biblical depths between them and their spouses. I love how this book is so deep and broad and yet still focused on two small verses in the Bible small but nonetheless irrelevant. I appreciated how organized this book was and how easy it was to read. I read through it quickly the first time, and then took my time exploring and journaling about each chapter as I reflected on the content.

    I recommend this book to any wife who is seeking to be a godly woman. Whether you are engaged, a newlywed, or approaching a golden anniversary this book is for you.

    I received this book from Crossway and am not being compensated for my review.

    I absolutely loved this book. It was so convicting with Biblical truth!

    It took me a long time to get through, because there was so much good stuff to let soak into my life. And now that I have finally finished, I plan on starting all over again to help the truth in it change me even more!

    The author broke down each of the fruit of the Spirit, and gave real life application on what they should look like in a Christian wife's life, and how to cultivate those fruit.

    I received this book from Crossways Publishing in return for my honest review.

    There are a lot of books about marriage. This particular book is for a wife. The author uses the fruits of the spirit to give some simple steps a wife can do to help make her marriage better.

    I like how the author pointed to the Lord and His guidelines as the ultimate map for wives to use when working on their marriage. I thought the author wrote with a loving heart and was very open about her own issues. I found the book to be hopeful and not just a list of do this but not that principles.

    I gave this book 5/5 stars for a few reasons. I thought the author wrote a very organized and easy to understand book. I liked the idea of using the fruits of the spirit as a guide for making your marriage better. I also found the book to be helpful and non-judgmental. I think this book would be great for any wife going through a changing period in her marriage but would really be a great book for any wife to read.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

    "The Fruitful Wife" looks to the Bible to find the answers about how one can grow in the Fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control). This book is for everyone, not just wives. While the author primarily used the husband-wife relationship as an illustration, the truths she discussed are helpful for everyone: wives, singles, parents--even men.

    I was impressed and challenged by this book. She started by discussing why producing Fruit is important (to help nourish other people and to bring glory to God). She took each Fruit of the Spirit and discussed what it is, what it isn't, how to grow it in your life, and how this works out in your relationships with others. She also talked honestly and openly about her own struggles with this and what she learned from the Bible about how Fruit is actually produced--and it's not by just trying harder.

    Overall, I'd highly recommend this encouraging, insightful, and powerful book to all Christians who want to grow in their walk with God.

    I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher.

    As Christians, we want to grow in the Lord. In our marriage, we want to produce fruit that is pleasing to our Father, and a blessing to our husbands. However, most of us find it hard, and sometimes even almost impossible to bear good fruit, mostly when things don't go our way, when we are mad at our husbands or frustrated with them. Why? The problem is our spiritual barrenness, our lack of the fruit of the Spirit. What is the fruit of the Spirit and how can we grow in it? Author Hayley Dimarco goes deep into the Word of God, its profound meaning, to bring us the answer.

    The Fruitful Wife is a book full of wisdom. Each chapter covers a specific part of the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Mrs. Dimarco, very simply, beautifully and to the point, explains what each part of the fruit of the Spirit means, what it is, what it isn't, how we can grow in it, and how we can apply it to our lives, and to our relationship with our husbands. The author draws from her life, her own experiences, failings and triumphs, which makes her more accessible, more like one of us. You will identify with her, and you will see yourself described in the pages of this book, and you will find hope for you, for your relationship with your husband, for your frustrations with yourself and with him.

    This book has made a great impact in my life. It took me a while to finish it because I had to stop on almost every page to analyze, internalize it, meditate, write it down, go to the Word of God and meditate once more. It has helped me grow in the knowledge of what the fruit of the Spirit really is, why it is important in my life, in my everyday life, and how to see things through it in order to live a life that pleases God.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone, married or single, because, although it does say "wife" in the title, it relates to every woman and it applies to every relationship in our lives —form our relationship with God to our relationship with our neighbors, not just our husbands. This is a really great, life changing book.

    *I received a copy of this book from Crossway through NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.
