Every marriage can become stale. This book shows you how to quit blaming everyone else and how to look inward and to God for solutions to your ho-hum marriage. Even if you think all is lost, this will help you to discover that the passion you seek may just be hiding in the bitterness and resentment that you can't get past. It helped me to realize that even if my husband and I don't agree, we know each other like no one else does. We have a committed/compassionate bond that can't be found by look...more

I love the series of books put out by Stephen Arterburn, Shannon Etheridge, Fred Stoeker, and others. They are really solid, straightforward books giving biblical insight into living a Christian life. I have implemented many of the suggestions they have into my own life; my life has been enriched and changed and the blessings have been many. Common everyday struggles are discussed and it sheds new light on the way I perceive certain situations. I am not married and not even dating but to staying...more

Virkelig en spændende bog. Uanset om du allerede er gift eller engang gerne vil giftes så sætter den virkelig nogle tanker igang om det at opbygge et godt forhold sammen og skabe et balanceret liv der hviler på både det åndelige, mentale, fysiske og følelsesmæssige i jeres forhold, og vigtigst af alt bygget på Guds mening og hensigt med ægteskabet. Hun skriver inspirerende om de problemer der kan opstå, som hun illustrere både set fra kvindens men også mandens side, og sidst men ikke mindst insp...more

This book was timely for me. It describes the different types of relationships we women can have with our husbands. For instance, the sugar daddy relationship would be if you play the spoiled child to get what you want from your husband. The best part of the book is how it clearly teaches how a wife can build up her husband, without using resentment or becoming bitter through the trials of life and marriage. The only thing lacking for me was the use of more scripture, even though the Bible is qu...more

To say that this is my “favorite” marriage/relationship book doesn’t convey the influence this book has had on our marriage. I was fortunate enough to read it for the first time before we were even engaged. I worked on incorporating these principles into our dating relationship and they became habits by the time we got married. Our marriage isn’t perfect, but I think we’ve avoided a lot of problems by reading this. The three things I love most about this book are the author’s transparency about...more

I really enjoyed this book, it gave me a lot to think about. Ethridge has a lot of good insights about what a christian marriage should look like and I think a person looking to change their marriage relationship for the better starting with herself, is going to find a lot great information to work with. And even a glimpse of how the male gender thinks. Ethridge doesn't sit on some high horse of 'holier than thou' attitude, she's been there. I found her personal stories refreshing and very relat...more
Katie
Great book. Quick read. Take away message is that you can only change yourself and can't expect your partner to meet all your emotional needs ( turn to God and friends for that). Highly recommended. Really enjoyed the anecdotal evidence about shannon and greg's marriage. The part about not letting pornography rob you of an intimate relationship with your spouse really hit home for me as well as not letting a few vanity pounds/other body image issues influence you letting your spouse see you nake...more

The first half of the book is one star, the last half three stars. It's too bad really because I think she does have some good points to make, but often it's buried under completely ridiculous statements - my favorite example being that masculinity is under attack in America! - and repeatedly quoting Dr. Laura. All in all, I felt like she was really writing to conservative, stay-at-home moms, which is great if that is who you are.
Kaethe
Took me a long time to get through this one -- a bit too pollyanna for my tastes. It does come at the issues between couples with a "what can I do to change my marriage" attitude, rather than a "how can I change my husband" point of view, which is much healthier than many books out there, but it's still too sticky-sweet at times.
Courtney
Every marriage is different, but the author shares wonderful insights into her own marriage that can easily be applied to other situations. While reading this, I learned a lot about how to show more respect for my husband in the small ways, not just the big ones. I feel this book has definitely improved my already wonderful marriage!
Kathy Maggiacomo
There is some good advice but I disagree with some too. A bit more religious than I am yet I enjoy hearing others opinions. I think I interpret things a bit differently. I did like many examples and hearing others stories. It actually made me feel like a pretty good wife after hearing some scenarios in the book.
Lindsay Bowley


As a newlywed, this book really helps me to beware of and be proactive to fight against the issues that come up in marriage that have the tendency to hurt true intimacy. This book, written for women, is paired with one for men to read. I would think it would be a great read for any couple!
Rae Vaughn
I really loved this book. I would recommend it for anyone that is married or contemplating marriage. It really has changed my thinking and has made me focus on me and my own actions and words within my marriage.
Anne
I personally think this book is lame and i thought the couple was being stupid.C'mon,do you really need to read about their mistakes to learn not to do the same thing?One word : "Stupid!"

I read this book twice, the first time I hated it because I felt like it was telling women to be a door mat but then I read it again months later and I got a lot from it.

Another book I received as a gift at my bridal shower. Now that I'm married, I perk up whenever people tell stories about their marriage or have words of wisdom about it.
Jamie
This is a great book if you want to improve your marriage. When I feel like I need help with an issue I can always look back on this book for guidance that I trust.
Ashley Calvert
EVERY Christian woman needs to read this. It is SO helpful and digs down deep into those hurtful issues that arise in marriage, and how to combat them.
Cherise
even if you think you are the best wife ever you need to read this book;) It was great. It really makes you want to love your husban!
Stacey
Very motivational, sets a tone for the womanly part in the marriage. Encouraging the hubby not slowly breaking him down.
Leslie
A good self-help book for marriage read by the author (and her husband) if you listen to the audio version.
Vanessa Eccles
