From Mark and Susan Merrill, the founders of Family First, comes a collection of lists created for the busy wife who wishes to strengthen her marriage and love her husband well.It’s no secret that there is a wide emotional gap between men and women. Couples crave love and attention from one another, but they don’t always know how to show it. LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY WIVES presents creative and practical ways for wives to bridge this gap and improve their relationship. These thirty lists will carry wives through an entire month of learning to love their husbands more deeply with advice they will come back to again and again. From lists addressing a wide range of topics, readers will learn to set better expectations for their marriage, to communicate more effectively with their husband, to build a deeper foundation of love in their marriage, and much more.
This is a quick read, something you can pick up read the list for the day and get to work.
The authors touch on many important topics that I think we need to be reminded of, such as the way we talk about our husbands in public, what to do when you don’t feel like being intimate, texts to send your husband.
The authors suggest reading a chapter a day and then doing something from the list for the day and then once you have gotten through all of the chapters go back and so something new from the list.
I will be honest and say that for me there wasn’t any earth shattering. When I read a book about marriage I always hope to get something new and just feel like I got some good reminders of things I do know. But with that said I do think there is a lot of value in this book for someone who is looking to make changes in an easy and not overwhelming way.
