If My Husband Would Change
If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy
(& Other Myths Wives Believe)
As women we are told this beautiful fairy tale about the wedding and marriage. Our prince charming will treat us like princesses and do everything to make us happy. Then when reality sets in and we find out that our husbands are humans with flaws just like us, many of us are disappointed. The author has combined her personal experience with her years of experience in the ministry of counseling to write a book about many of the myths women believe when entering marriage. Using a faith based approach, the author sprinkles common sense and practicality with stories and humor. Each chapter ends with a section called "Thinking It Through" with scripture and space for writing that helps the reader sort through their thoughts. The next section is called "Living It Out" and takes a practical approach.
The chapters were filled with advice and thoughts that were extremely helpful and introspective. While I think my marriage is great, there is always room for improvement on my part. So this was a wonderful refresher course. The questions and thoughts at the end really helped solidify what I'd just read. This book would work great as a personal study or for a small group setting. While the main focus is women who feel frustrated or lonely in their marriage, I think any married or soon-to-be married woman would greatly benefit from reading it. Overall, great book with lots of insightful thoughts on marriage from someone who's been there.
I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
