Item description for The Strong-Willed Wife: Using Your Personality to Honor God And Your Husband by Debbie L. Cherry...
Overview In today's world, the Bible's design for marriage is under constant attack.
It seems that women receive two very different messages: The church teaches submission to all God-given authority, while our culture encourages independence from anyone or anything. And while the idea of submission is tough for any woman to accept, it can be even more difficult for those with strong personalities. All of this can leave many wondering if submission in marriage is even relevant to today's woman.
Author Debbie L. Cherry believes that authority is still essential to a healthy, vibrant marriage. Join Debbie as she takes an honest look at one of the Bible's most misunderstood teachings. By tackling the common concerns and misconceptions that distort the truth, Dr. Cherry presents the scriptural concept of authority and how it's designed to be a vital part of a loving, secure relationship. You'll discover freedom in letting your husband lead, because submission doesn't mean denying who you are.
Publishers Description This book examines the common concerns and misconceptions surrounding the concept of submission in marriage. Learn what God really meant and how when husbands lead, wives will discover new freedom.

The best about using one's own strong personality the right way. Oct 24, 2007
This book was the very best book I've read about using one's own personality for the right reasons and ways w/o condeming those of us with a rather "LUCY" personality. :)
The BEST marriage book for strong-willed women Jun 15, 2007
It seems I've read every other book out there on how to be a good wife... And most all of them left me frustrated. I don't need to be preached to -- I already know what I should do and I already know what the bible says I should do. What was different about this book was how the author talked to ME -- like she knew me -- and didn't preach at me all the things I've already heard. She comforted and encouraged, talked up my strengths and gave practical, helpful advice for overcoming the particular hang-ups that I deal with in my marriage. After reading this book (in one setting, I must add, since I couldn't put it down!) I feel so much more at peace with my role in my marriage. I'm still strong, which my husband loves about me, but I'm working to become (with the author's such helpful advice) more peaceful and helpful...which makes BOTH my husband and I much happier. =)
