The very first book that I ever read on marriage, gave me great tips that i will carry with me for the rest of my life......The classic lesson I learn from this book is that I cant expect my future husband to fulfill all my emotional needs.I need to look to God, who will satisfy all my emotional needs and make me happy.Expecting my husband to make me happy always is a pipe dream.He's only human.This book broke it down to me the importance of being an all-rounded person to be the best wife I can ...more

Over the past few years, I've read several books that focused on relationships for premarital counseling and just out of curiosity so I was pretty excited when this book was given to me to read. I really like to dig into these types of books to see where I'm doing well and to see where I can improve on things so that I can do better. What I really liked about this book was the fact that it left you at the end of each chapter with an action point to try out to improve your own marriage. It was gr ...more

I wanted to type some notes from this book because I intend to send it along to another woman...I pinned it but was also skeptical..."oh, here's another woman who floats instead of walking because she's so holy." But then the author is very forthcoming with her own weaknesses and struggles...she even admits that she once threw cold water on her husband while he was asleep in bed! I appreciated that she was so honest about her own brand of crazy.

I snatched up a few valuable nuggets from this book

Terrific book for wives.. Full of truths to be reminded of and practical ideas, challenges for improving your marriage... Gods way.
Jul 23, 2013 Jennine rated it it was amazing
This book divides the relationship responsibilities a wife has with her husband into categories: spiritual, emotional, sexual, vocational, intellectual, relational, and physical. Each category is discussed thoroughly, with discussion on how words and actions have negative and positive effects on your husband. The ideas TerKeurst gives for each section are easy to implicate, giving you a chance to immediately try and succeed in each category as you make it a habit. The book is not long at all and ...more

This book was comforting in the fact that Lysa shared her struggles in marriage. It was a reminder that I'm not the only wife who gets frustrated with her husband or says the wrong things at the wrong times. Every marriage has good and bad days and it's important to always be working on a better relationship with your spouse. This book had some good tips. Ultimately, my husband and I want a strong marriage centered around Christ. Any nugget of information we get to help us with that goal is grea ...more

Some good tips, but a little trite for my taste.

This book was a quick and easy read. The author gave many personal accounts of her own marriage and some of the practical things that she did to heal her marriage as well as maintain it. I look forward to reading more books from her.
Megan Fischer
It is broken up into small parts which is good because you will want to apply the information that day. Not always what I wanted to hear but definitely good to hear. Love Lysa's open and honest writing.
Brandi Kosiner (Brandi Breathes Books)
Great marriage book. Godly centered. Lysa with her usual style is real and gives examples I can relate to, laugh at, and consider seriously.
