Overview

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.

    A different point of view on being a wife - and impacting your marriage!

    This book focuses on being more Christ-like as a wife. It explains real ways to impact your marriage even if you are working on improvements without your husband's involvement. The book includes chapters on being married to a man who isn't the Spiritual head of your home, a man who is an unbeliever, and an angry man. At first glance, the book seems like one that is written for a marriage that is on the brink of divorce. However, I believe that it can teach any wife how to make her marriage better and become more Christ-like in the process.

    Must read for every marriage

    Just purchased this last weekend at a women's conference. Love it! My marriage was fine.... now I understand little things on my part that are major things to my husband. Looking forward to the rest of the book and moving from a fine marriage to a great one.

    Every wife should read this book!

    I love this book! I have read it twice and will again. The author is blunt and tells it how it is. Some of the things he said, I did not want to hear. It was the truth though! My husband confirmed it! It's all the things that most husbands want to tell their wife but don't know how!

    Advice from a brother

    We women are quick to give each other sisterly advice on marriage, and there's certainly a place for it, but not having had a big brother, it was good to hear from a man on the subject of how to live well with my husband. We have had a good marriage, but I have more respect for my husband and the challenges in his life now and I am happier; prayerfully, my husband is happier as well.
