Publisher's 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.

Author Bio

Gary Thomas is writer-in-residence (and serves on the teaching team) at Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas and author of 18 books that have sold over a million copies worldwide and have been translated into a dozen languages. He and his wife Lisa have been married for 30 years.

 

Endorsements

God has given godly women a wonderful power to influence and encourage their husbands. What’s the secret? This book will provide challenges, examples, and hope to women who want to love their husbands well and be loved well in return.
--Dennis Rainey, President of Family Life

I was amazed that Gary Thomas had such insight about how a woman thinks and feels! He has similar insight into men. The information he shares is truly profound. I highly recommend this book to every wife.
--Linda Dillow, Author of Creative Counterpart and coauthor of Intimate Issues

    I taught a VBS Mom's class using this book and it was GREAT!! The testimonies in the book were powerful with real, down to earth help from examples. It helped me as a wife more than any other book I have read on marriage and I would HIGHLY recommend it to any married woman. No matter what shape your marriage may be in, God can use you to make a difference. I liked how this book focused on you instead of how to "change" your husband. How God can use your marriage to change and shape you for the better.

    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!!!!!!!!
