Being a godly wife can be difficult. It requires time, commitment, change, and a daily choice to work toward God’s best in one’s marriage. For some wives, the path to a godly marriage can be confusing.
Thanks to Darby Dugger’s For the Love of Our Husbands, wives now have a guide to achieving God’s design for their marriage. Dugger highlights several ways wives can grow in their relationship with Christ, in their role as a wife, and in their marriage. And, while it may seem obvious that a wife must pray for her husband, he and his spiritual needs are often left out of daily prayers. To help alleviate that oversight, Dugger provides daily, Scripture-based prayers for their husbands and includes a brief weekly devotion to help bring God’s hand into their marriage. In For the Love of Our Husbands, Dugger conveys the simple principle that while striving to become a better wife, one must ultimately become a better woman of faith as well.
I have been married 19 years this year. I can't believe it has been that long! The years have just flown by and I feel very blessed that I have a man that loves the Lord and his family so much! My husband and I have been through so much over the years. We have had three beautiful children together, we have grieved over a parents death, and we have faced financial struggles and layoffs. We have also become best friends and soul mates and have enjoyed the second part of our marriage even more then the first. Marriage is never perfect, even when we have been blessed with a good spouse. It takes work, sacrifice, and believe me-Prayer!
I loved receiving For the Love of Our Husbands to review. This book is 52 devotions for wives and prayers for the men they love. The book is broken down into weeks and each week you are given a challenge to apply to your marriage.
Week 4: To see things from my husband's point of view and to pray for myself to be "quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry" James 1:19
Darby Dugger then goes on to share some personal experiences, along with a prayer to pray. The book is very well laid out and the devotions are short but good. It would go great on your nightstand to pick up before you start or end your day and would only take around 5 minutes of your time. For the Love of Our Husbands is great for a busy mom who wants encouragement in their marriage!
