Weighing My Options

Business savvy, intelligent and ready to finally add a hyphen to her name, Amber Ross can’t figure out what the hold up is. Her last boyfriend kind of disappeared. When he resurfaces, it’s to tell her that he’s engaged to be married. Apparently she did not make the final cut. While feeling dejected, Amber knows that she needs to be in church. And sure enough, the answer is there. A course - Wife 101. Is this finally the help she needs to find someone to put a ring on it?

Class Is In Session

Thirty-something-year-old businesswoman Amber Ross hasn’t been lucky at love and finding Mr. Right. When her church offers a personal development training course, Wife 101, Amber reluctantly signs up. Over the next several weeks, Amber will have to face some hard facts about herself.

This is my second read by A’ndrea Wilson and she hasn’t disappointed me yet. Quite different from her previous novel, “The Things We Said We Would Never Do,” “Wife 101” tackles the internal journe

Wife 101 by A'ndrea J. Wilson -5 stars
God works in mysterious ways. I purchased this book on the recommendation of another avid reader not knowing what it was really about. The book is a fictional romance based around the teaching of the Proverbs 31 woman. I know you say it's fiction but the Word is very real and always leads you to the Truth. Don't just take my word for it for yourself I promise you won't be disappointed.

Amber Ross is a serious business woman. She has three businesses

I really enjoyed this book. It definitely opened my eyes. I have a better understanding of Proverbs 31. I tried reading in the past but wasn't getting it. Didn't want to ask anyone to clarify. Wilson explains through a character, Amber Ross, I can pretty much relate to.

On judgement alone, you'd think Amber had it all. But in reality, she doesn't. She learns her ex is getting married and she wonders what's wrong with her. She enrolls in a class being taught at her church. She goes in
Dr. A'ndrea Wilson has written a superb piece of work that has enlightened my soul (mind and emotions) as well as my spirit when it comes to singleness to being blessed. I know God has blessed her pen. She has given me this work as a gift to review. (Therefore, I cannot wait to read the next edition of the 101 series; Husband 101).

This is the first time (even in story form) that shares life-learned filled lessons as chapter headings and sufficient teachings on Proverbs 31 in written form. Altho

Where do I begin in writing a review for this book? Dr. A'ndrea Wilson was definitely in tune with God when she wrote Wife 101. From the first lesson (she uses "Lesson" instead of "Chapter), I knew I was in for a treat (even though this book is talking about the characteristics of a wife). The truth is this: this book is for men and women, single or married. Churches need to use this book in marriage counseling sessions. Dr. A'ndrea Wilson has an academic background in psychology, but she uses t ...more

The Virtuous Woman.

Amber Rose is the ultimate professional. Young, attractive, educated, owner of multiple businesses and money is not an issue. Amber believes she is quite a catch for any man, so why does she have a long list of exes?

Is it enough to be successful, financially well off, and independent? Are these the right ingredients for a successful relationship? Amber thought it was until her current beau left her to marry someone else!

This is a great read for all women. I found it to be enlightening, inspiring, and humbling! I can relate to a lot of the things that Amber was thinking regarding the men in her world. I'm glad she came to her senses before it was to late.

This was my first read by A'ndrea Wilson and it won't be my last.

I absolutely LOVED this book from beginning to end! I learned through Amber Ross's experiences. Who knew one chapter in the bible could tell you and teach you so much about being a WOMAN.

She begins realizing some changes that she needs to make within herself during this 12 week course. In the midst of it, she begins da ...more

Wife 101, couldn't have crossed my path at a better time. I have read the basis of this novel many times, Proverbs 31 is a verse many women have read. And I just like many other women have never taken a deeper look in it. In Wife 101, A'ndrea Wilson really broke down the each verse and applied it to real life situations that anyone could easily relate to. The main character Amber, greets turmoil in her life. After her former boyfriend re-appears and announces his engagement, Amber is forced to l ...more

Dr. A'ndrea Wilson has gone completely outside of the box as she merges fiction and nonfiction material collectively to present to women a tool for becoming a better woman. Wife 101 is not your oridinary book. It is both self-motivational and entertaining. Wilson has you rooting for characters, and taking sides all while learning more about yourself as a woman. For men who read this, you may find yourself constantly using this work as a bar to uphold your ideal woman to. Wilson is unique as she ...more

Amber Ross is like many a successful women that chase career instead of commitment. When her independent mindset is challenged, she begins to truly look at herself to see if her life aligns with the biblical teaching of the Proverbs 31 woman.

Throughout the chapters she reflects on her life, the people in it, and her place through it all. There are various twists and turns and times when you want to shout out and tell Amber, “No! Don’t do it!” Littered with humor, the lessons are very satisfying

A'ndrea J. Wilson's Wife 101 was awesome! I am so thankful that this book was recommended for me to read. I am officially a Proverbs 31 woman in training! What a mind-blowing revelation! What I thought I knew about this powerful scripture, I didn't. However, what I did know was confirmed as well. I'm not too far off the mark. I won't give away any spoilers, but after reading this, I can rejoice in knowing that women play a significant role in God's kingdom. We are loved! We are valued! We are ne ...more

I *loved* this book. It is a Christian romantic comedy that works chapter 31 of Proverbs into the story. As the main character learns the principles of what makes a virtuous woman from Proverbs 31, I learned also. It was more insightful to read as a the character learns from her mentor than I would have gained by reading it myself. And, let's face it: it is more enjoyable to read a novel than scriptures. :) The romance in the story is fairly predictable, but is enjoyable nonetheless. I really en ...more

All I can say is wow! I have not had so much fun reading a book in a long time. Amber is truly an interesting lady and how I would have loved to be in the Wife 101 class. I was totally submerged in the story, the small geographical details were woven skillfully into the story. Great work Andrea! I will have to read Husband 101 to get the rest of the story.

Word of mouth is a powerful tool. I heard a few people whom I respect and trust their thoughts have recommended this book.
