Like most brides on their wedding day, you no doubt were filled with love for your husband and the hope of a happy life together. But perhaps today, as the realities of life together have settled in, those happy expectations are going unfulfilled. And it's tempting to think, "If only my husband would change, I'd be happy."
That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In the process, she addresses such important topics as
- understanding your husband's need for your unconditional respect
- rekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first place
- refusing to believe the lie that you'd be happier married to someone else
- learning to be content in the midst of financial struggles
- thinking about sex from a biblical worldview
If you desire to rekindle the love and hope you felt on your wedding day, this book will go a long way toward making that dream come true.
Contains discussion questions and personal reflections at the end of each chapter.

Tell us a little about yourself. I am Rhonda Stoppe - the No Regrets Woman. I am passionate about helping women build NO REGRETS LIVES, through sound doctrine of Scripture, humor, and honest communication, I help women live so that one day they will look back and sayNO REGRETS! I have appeared on numerous radio programs, speaks at womens events, MOPs, and homeschool conventions throughout the nation. (You can listen to my radio interviews/messages at NoRegretsWoman.com
What was your motivation behind this project? I just love love - don't you? For over 20 years my husband, Steve (the love of my life & high school sweet heart) and I have been helping people love each other the way they meant to on the day they said "I Do" Often whenever a wife can get her husband to come into our office for biblical marriage counsel she is secretly thinking, "Oh good, now they will change him and then I can be happy". Once we help a wife discover where her true happiness lies, she is ready to unpack the other myths wives believe about how to be happy in marriage. And when this happens Oh WOW watch out! Their marriage begins to transform into the marriage they had always hoped for! In writing IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I'D BE HAPPY I get to go home with the reader, take her by the hand, and become a personal #MarriageMentor to help her build a NO REGRETS marriage!
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I want every woman who reads this book to learn how to be the wife she meant to be on the day she said "I Do"! And it is my deepest desire to see Christian Marriages transformed to reflect Christ's love so deeply that God can use their adoration for one another to draw others to know Christ-Beginning with their own children. Jesus said, "They will know you are my disciples by your love for one another." This love MUST begin at home, if we are ever going to become the light of the world that Jesus talked about. Your love shines brightest when life gets hard, your husband doesn't measure up to your expectations, or maybe your husband never becomes a Christ follower. In the love stories in IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I'D BE HAPPY you will find inspiration, and HOPE for a happy marriage whether or not your husband ever measures up to your expectations.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I laughed, I cried The love stories contained in this book are just glorious inspiration! How Peter watched his own wife crucified, and what his final words were to his bride take your breath away! The love story of Charles Spurgeon and his bride is delightful, and gives the reader HOPE to love the way these two loved each other. And the many stories I told about my own love story, (like living on a generator in the middle of nowhere for over a year with my man), and the love stories of modern day Priscilla & Acquilla's, etc will give you a grasp on how short our time is on this earth, and to live in a manner worthy of our calling only makes senseBeginning with building a marriage that others will want to emulate, and a legacy our childrenand grandchildren will pass down for generations to come!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I was deeply influenced by the love of my own mother-in-law & father-in-law. Their love was so deep, so captivating that even when my mother-in-law was diagnosed with alzheimer's and she no longer knew her husband, his love for her was so deep he cared for her himself, refusing to put her in a home. Jim & Elizabeth George's love story was an inspiration . You can read their story in this book. (Elizabeth George wrote an endorsement for the book) Shaunti Feldhahn's social researcher and best selling author of the book FOR WOMEN ONLY shared valuable insights into what sex means to men. I have included these insights in this book. (Shaunti also wrote an endorsement for this book.)
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I just LOVE this book! I am so excited to walk with you through the pages of IF MY HUSBAND WOULD CHANGE I'D BE HAPPY-And Other Myths Wives Believe!
