In today’s society, a woman is rewarded for being strong and ambitious.  When she comes home and continues to be strong and ambitious, her marriage can suffer.  What should she do and where can she turn for help.

Like many women, April Cassidy knew this struggle.  She thought God needed to change her husband, when she was the one who needed to change.  God showed her how she needed to let go of the desire to control.  He also showed her how to give her husband true respect. 

In this book she shows the reader how to accomplish everything with God.  Cassidy also includes testimonies from other women and some husbands.

My thoughts-

This was a book I needed to read.  I needed to learn how to become the best Godly wife that I can be for my husband.  I need to change my heart.

April Cassidy said that this book was for the dominate wife and passive husband.  I am that dominate wife.  I learned that I need to do more with respect, learning God’s character, and focus on what I should be doing for my husband.

The list of ways wives can disrespect their husbands was sobering for me.  I could check so many things on it.  I know I need to change and am commited to do so. 

Cassidy had quotes from her husband and other husbands and wives.  She also suggested doing a Bible study on God’s character.  She included a section on how to act with a husband who doesn’t know Christ.  At the end of the book she included a list of books for further study.

I highly recommend this book.  All wives and wives to be should read this book.
