“Michelle McKinney Hammond states in In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man, ‘I hope to champion God's original design for a man's life.’ She says that the reason male/female relationships are in a constant state of frustration is because most men don't have a clue as to what women want and only a vague idea what God wants. Harmony and vibrant love are absent in many marriages. And whereas perfection will not be attained in this life, Hammond wisely advises men to pursue it anyway so that they can please both God and their wives.
“Hammond works with men and women to mend broken relationships and to help couples find new and purer ways of loving each other. Her previous books include The Power of Femininity and How to Be Blessed and Highly Favored. She speaks at numerous women's retreats and conferences across America, and she is co-host of the television talk show ‘Aspiring Women.’
“This is not a male-bashing book, although Hammond thinks of men as diamonds in the rough. She suggests to men that if they want to know what women want, desire and deserve, they should first establish a strong relationship with God, who will then reveal insights on successful relationship building commitments.
“The author says that women will be both submissive and supportive of their men if the men will ‘clear a path’ of holiness for them. A lasting covenant in marriage centers on God and each other. No longer does one say ‘mine,’ but now ‘ours.’ Commitment to the marriage vows demands that a man have a continuous pursuit of his wife's love. One particular chapter, ‘Picture Perfect Love,’ explains how a man can pattern his love for his spouse on the model of Christ's love for His church.
“This is a book that single men, engaged men, and certainly men can use to strengthen or save their marriages. Read it once, put its ideas into practice, and then take it out and re-read it once a year.” -- Dale R. Criswell, Christian Book

Editorial Reviews

"Men, if you want to become a truly godly man and husband, In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man is a must-read. Women, if you want to know what to look for and nurture in a lifelong mate, this book is for you, too."
–Dr. Greg Smalley, president and CEO, Smalley Relationship Center

"Michelle McKinney Hammond tells it like it is, without pretense or sugarcoating. In her own unique style, she relays simple truths concerning the essence of masculinity from God’s perspective. Every man wants to be ideal, but not many know what it takes to be God’s ideal man. In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man identifies God’s heartbeat concerning men. It points out the fact that a false understanding of manhood can be damaging not only to the individual, but to those for whom he cares a great deal. This book shows you that the Proverbs 31 man is not damaged goods; instead, he’s a ’polished diamond’ in the eyes of the Great Diamond Maker."
–Dr. Creflo A. Dollar, CEO of World Changers Ministries and author of The Successful Family

"Michelle McKinney Hammond never wastes even a second of your time. She skirts no issues, never runs from controversy, and consistently engages her readers in authentic and entertaining dialog. She is so quick-witted, outrageously funny, and she holds your attention from start to finish. This is one of her most perceptive books. It’ s right on the mark. It goes to the heart of the ever-present man—woman debate, and it weighs in on the side of truth, of what works, and of what it takes to build a satisfying relationship that will last a lifetime. She speaks strongly to men, and she speaks just as strongly to women. As a ’seasoned’ clinical psychologist, I find her ideas highly stimulating and unusually helpful."
–Neil Clark Warren, Ph.D., founder of

"Who isn’t in search of the Proverbs 31 man? This book is for singles who want to know what character qualities are a must in a mate; for men who are confused by our culture and want to know what kind of man God esteems; and for women, tired of pressuring their men, who want to find the freedom of being a helper and soul mate. Michelle McKinney Hammond helps us discover the power of a Proverbs 31 couple who is willing to do it God’s way."
–Jan Frank, speaker and coauthor of Unclaimed Baggage
