The Beautiful Wife

Ons women have about their roles as wives Discussing everything from romance and money to beauty communication and sex Sandy challenges women to open up and share their journeys so that together they can see God's plan for their marriages It is my passion to help women discover God's heart for their marriage just as other women helped me writes Sandy When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives it's a beautiful thing indeed. Sandy Ralya did a wonderful job of pointing out things that I as a wife had never thought of before in regards to my role as a wife I ll be the first to admit that I get tired of hearing Christian authors and speakers tell us to submit to our husbands and while Sandy did touch on this she talked about it in a way that didn t leave me feeling like being submissive is being weak There were several points in the book where I felt as though she was talking directly to me Each chapter covers a different facet of life as a wife and gives tips on how to revamp that area of your marriage in order to make you the most beautiful wife you can beThis is a book that I will be going back to making notes on in the accompanying journal and hopefully leading a study using the Mentor Guide At the conclusion of each chapter there are uestions to prompt you to write in the journal but I promise you won t need them in order to have things to write about It is that thought provoking The journal also guides you in what to write about and from looking at it it s going to be easy to fill the pages The mentor guide gives great instruction to lead discussion on each chapter as well as clearly defining your role as a mentorI ll leave you with my favorite verse from The Beautiful WifeSo chosen by God for this new life of love dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you compassion kindness humility uiet strength discipline Be even tempered content with second placeuick to forgive an offense Forgive as uickly and completely as theMaster forgave you And regardless of what else you put onwear love It s your basic all purpose garmentNever be without it Colossians 312I receied this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for my honest review

There was a time when author Sandy Ralya's marriage was in trouble She needed help but she was afraid to ask for it At the time she didn't know that hundreds of other wives were struggling with the same issues she was Though Sandy eventually sought guidance from godly mentors and Christian counselors other women remain silent Many churches lack ministries and resources to reach out and help these women Sandy Ralya founded Beautiful Womanhood in 2003 to provid. The Beautiful Wife is a book for the gloriously messy woman who has serious and not so serious uestions about her role as a wife It s a book for the woman who longs to develop deep relationships with real women who don t gloss over the dirty realities of life It s book for the woman who wants to experience fulfillment passion and meaning in her marriageIt can be a difficult thing to understand the role of a wife in this day and age As a matter of fact it s always been a hard role to understand After all it s not a one size fits all kind of job and it may reuire tweaking with each new season of life Your marriage is different than mine and both of our marriages are different than your friend s Recipe theology living by a one size fits all formula leaves all women hungry But there are answers that satisfyIn the book The Beautiful Wife you will find some of those answers In fact the you work through the book the you to turn God and talk vulnerably within a loving community of women the answers you ll find The stories of imperfect women with imperfect marriages will refresh you and also challenge you to make changes in your role as a wife which will improve your marriage You can use this book with small groups of women alone or with a mentor and I truly believe it will change your marriage for the better and teach you that there isn t such a thing as a perfect marriage or husbandI received the book The Beautiful Wife by Sandy Ralya compliments of Litfuse Publicity for my honest review and this came at a perfect time for me I m always evaluating how my own marriage can be better and how I can improve as a wife Just the first chapter alone was like a breath of fresh air to my heart and soul as Sandy explains her own personal struggle in her marriage and trying to find a better way to make it work I felt as if her words were my own and could relate to her story realizing I am not alone in my thoughts actions and worse yet words However through simple instructions I saw how I could improve my husband through my actions alone and not anything I say or try to get him to doThe biggest eye opener for me was when Sandy taught about the uniue differences and roles we each bring into the marriage though we are eual we are not the same Clearly Adam needed something he didn t already possess or there would be no need for Eve It s realizing what strengths each of us brings to the marriage and how we can use those strengths to build the other up and strengthen our marriage Men need our strengths in encouragement our ability to find solutions in the midst of storms and instead of us dwelling on all the things we find fault with in our husbands we need to think about all the positives Philippians 48 I can wait to see what blessings our marriage will bring as we both work through building our marriage and work towards being the best we can be in our roles as husbands and wivesI easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend it to any woman who is currently married or considering marriage It s also great for women s Bible Studies and for Couples Counseling as well
