Publisher's Description:

Synopsis: Applying the concepts from his bestseller Sacred Marriage, Gold Medallion award-winning author Gary Thomas reveals what a man needs from his wife to become the husband she wants. Now in softcover!

Description: If you’re sick of all the ways you’ve tried to bring about change in your marriage—the silent treatment, nagging, one-way discussions, or pleading—it’s time to set aside those broken methods for a Christ-based approach. This book demonstrates how women can inspire, influence, and help their husbands move in positive directions. Replacing your plan of action with God’s leads to a marital transformation where both partners are moving in sync, the way God intended.

Gary Thomas draws concepts from his bestseller, Sacred Marriage, and outlines practical applications you can start using today. He also shows how marriages were transformed through these methods employed by real-life women.

In these pages, you’ll also find a fresh perspective to help you understand your husband: the view of the marriage relationship through a man’s eyes. Thomas gives you insider information on how men think, feel, and can truly be motivated.

    I read this book over Christmas vacation. It is well written, engaging and a relatively quick read. His points are well made. He is speaking to women and he qualifies this often that he has a separate book for men. I believe his points are Biblical and sound. His advice, if put into practice, would probably get the results a frustrated wife is looking for. Some of his advice is tough. I truly believe there is only ONE person you can change and that is yourself. I would highly recommend this to all, even MEN.

    I think this is a must have for every husband and wife. Our class started with Sacred Marriage which has changed us in so many possitve ways!! Sacred Influence is no different!! It is so "deep", but very understandable. The author doesn't sugar coat anything or give us excuses because of our sex. It is SO important that we put God first in everything!! God has to be the center of our hearts (as he says in chapter one) for any of our relationships to grow and be great. Gary Thomas has hit the bullseye with these 2 books!! Our last class had 10 people in it, and our new one has 14!! (which is all wives right now). But we are planning to have one for couples!! Definately can read singly, but how much more helpful it will be if both husband and wife read it!!!!

    I cannot say yes enough times to someone wandering if they should get this or not!!!!!!!!

    Very Good reading and I recommend wives and husbands will become in touch with God for successful marriage. I also recomment that singled men and women should read while dating and before marriage.
