Don’t get the wrong idea; this book is all about empowering women to be great wives in loving marriages with incredible men! In this book, Why Marry a Man You Don’t Need, Carmen Hope Thomas takes on the task of confronting sisters who have been successful in their career but not equally successful in their relationships. Carmen’s perspective is refreshing and reflective because she shares her personal journey toward a happy marriage and motherhood, all while empowering women everywhere to be honest about the myths and misinformation that have shaped their ideas about men and marriage. 

Carmen will take you through the exercise of looking at your success, career and money women celebrate and help reveal her calculated theory of why some women have chosen their successes over a healthy relationship and how that choice affects our entire faith community.

“A Powerful Must Read! Carmen has taught us how to lift up our men to make them live up to the image God has prepared them to be…” 
-Helen Powell Stoddart, MD, MS—Pain 2 Wellness Healthcare, Madison, AL
