The Beautiful Wife uses these inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God's best in her marriage. The Beautiful Wife answers serious questions 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 the 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." The Beautiful Wife has two companion resources - Prayer Journal and Mentor's Guide.
My Book Review:
The Beautiful Wife is an inspirational Christian guide for women, devoted to helping them define their role within their marriage, so that they can have a fulfilling and successful marriage. The author provides information and spiritual guidance on important marital topics such as: communication, money, romance, sex, prayer, self-care and living a genuine life. The 12-part study guide is filled with the author's own experiences, along with spiritual references and suggestions on how to have a beautiful marriage and live within God's vision of a beautiful life. The Beautiful Wife was written and meant for a group setting, but it can easily be used for the individual study as well. In addition to The Beautiful Wife, it also has two companion guides: Prayer Journal and Mentor's Guide.
I thought that The Beautiful Wife was a beautifully well-written and inspirational book. I appreciated the author providing her readers with examples of her past experiences, her reassuring messages of hope for having a successful marriage is uniquely profound and deeply moving. The author provides practical, realistic, useful and inspirational information and suggestions to attain the the type of marriage that God intended for all of us. The encouraging and inspirational guidance that the reader will gain from reading this book is second to none, it is a book that a woman can continuously reference back to throughout her marriage.
I would recommend reading The Beautiful Wife for everyone who is considering marriage or is currently married (no matter the length of time), this book will provide endless spiritual reference and guidance to having a beautiful, loving and successful marriage.
