I bought this book soon after I got married in hopes to find my purpose as a Christian wife. I had many questions and concerns and no answers. Honestly, I felt like I was missing a huge chunk of what it meant to be a Godly, Christian wife, although, I was raised in church by a Christian family. I have done much research on Christian Homemaking and this book came up on my research. After it arrived I couldn't put it down. This book has completely transformed my entire life! I learned so much about myself and who I ought to be in the Lord from this book. I gained new insight on topics that I never even thought about. It turned out to be way better than I anticipated. I honestly treasure it darn near close to my bible! Lol. I call it "the wife bible" ha!
JUST TO WARN! .. it will make you uncomfortable. It will make you face things you would never think about facing. It will make you contemplate ideas you never thought you would be contemplating. But, not only have I seen a dramatic transformation, but my husband has as well. It will bless and prosper not only you personally, but your marriage as well if you let it.
Something little extra that I enjoyed was that it included a TON of scriptures to back up every singly viewpoint and topic. I have yet to find another book/devotional that includes as much scripture to back up viewpoints as this book. I have read many of the verses listed in this book, but I have never thought to tag it along with the topics brought up in each chapter. It certainly opened my eyes!
I loved this book so much I just gave it to my neighbor to borrow who is in a season of reclaiming herself as a wife and mother in the Lord. She has just started reading it and has already been impacted!
Definitely give this book a try! You will not be disappointed!
By far, the very best book for Christian wives, and even more so for abused wives
October 16, 2014
This book provides godly, Christ-honoring advice, sound Biblical foundation for every Christian wife. It changed my life and I am very thankful to the Lord for it, as it provides abundant godly guidance. For wives with abusive husbands, it clearly explains God's wonderful ways of protection (which very sadly, other renowned books disregard). I absolutely recommend it to every wife, and even more so to those suffering.
Believing in and living out God's biblical principles in marriage would greatly reduce the divorce rate, even if only one partner did so. There are cases where the other partner does not respond or soften their hearts, but I believe that many would respond if given time, patience and love. The corresponding book for this one is The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott, which is equally good.
