100 Ways to Love Your Husband by Lisa Jacobson
★★★★★ “Great Encouragement!” By Caitlin
Are you looking for some practical ideas on what being a godly wife looks like? This book is a great little field manual—short and simple and yet packed full of solid, biblical ideas on how to love and honor your man.
Even if you think you have a “good” marriage, you might find yourself surprised and challenged by some of her suggestions to grow in ways you weren’t expecting. Indeed, that’s how all of her personal anecdotes play out. Here is a couple who had a “good” marriage, and yet through conscious choice, hard work, and walking with the Lord together, they have a truly fantastic marriage that keeps getting better. If you want to have a wonderful marriage, Lisa’s book is a great encouragement!
