The Excellent wife work book Aug 26, 2008
I love the work book. The only negative thing i have to say is that I ordered the Book and Workbook on the same day in the same order and it took the workbook 2 weeks longer to get here. I think that should be worked on.
Not a good book for wives! Aug 20, 2008
The Excellent Wife may contain some good, valuable information. However, if you are married, you must not buy into the teaching that we, as wives, have Biblical authority over our husbands. There is not gentle rebuking from wife to husband; there is no room for a wife to stand over her husband in any authority whatsoever at any time in a marriage. Our husbands are our covering, our protection, and our authority-blessed by God and used by God to bless us. Please consider turning to Scripture yourself to see all the amazing truths about marriage rather than reading The Excellent Wife. If you must read a book other than the Bible, please consider "Created to Be His Helpmeet". It is more doctrinally true to what the Bible teaches about marriage and offers much deeper teachings.
MUST have for every wife and wife to be! Jul 15, 2008
One of the most convicting books I've ever read. I've read it more than once and something new jumps out at me each time. I appreciate that it is not "sugar coated" to make me have "warm fuzzy feelings". It's the deep truth from God's word. Many times I've read something from this book that stings. Even thought the "sting" might be there, I've been blessed by that "sting". I've been encouraged through this book to allow myself to be molded by God and strengthened in Christ. This is a book that will ROCK your world. Read it slow. Take it in. Bring it all back to scripture and see that it lines up. This book, through Christ, has made a very large impact in my life. It is a book that keeps giving. It continues to impact my life the more I read it. If you start to read it and have disagreements, first state what your disagreement is. If that sentence has "I" in it, adjust your way of thinking to be God centered instead of self-centered and give it another chance. This is by far my #1 recommended book to any woman alive!
WOW! Jun 30, 2008
WOW! Is about all I can say. This is not an easy read. This is an in your face convicting manual on How to be a Godly wife. It is covered with Scripture and Martha Peace does an excellent job in relating the issues to her experiences as a wife. My small group is reading this & it always leads to great discussions. It is also nice to have the accountability of reading when things get to tough to read.
Changing yourself may be just what you need to see change in your husband Jun 25, 2008
If you are a woman who is looking for spiritual growth, is aching for change in your husband but aren't sure how to get it, and accepts the fact that God's Word is truth, period, then this book can and will help you and your marriage! For quite some time I have tried (without success) to change my husband. I read Power of a Praying Wife and found it hard to incorporate, but when I did, my marriage prospered. I have immersed myself in Gods Word and experienced much spiritual growth. I have learned to listen to the still small voice and see his miraculous ways of speaking to me. He led me to this book. Now instead of thinking my husband needs to change, and trying to find fault with him, I am using the principles of this book to be the wife God wants me to be by changing me! A lot of times I found that I was so resentful toward my husband that I didn't want to do the things that Power of a Praying Wife said I needed to do. I would make excuses like "Why should I do this or that when he is the one being such a poop?!" This book tells me why. When I don't want to respond to his anger or requests in a Godly way, this book has taught me how to do it anyway and the reasons why I am supposed to do it. I am not doing them to please my husband or because he deserves it, it is because God wants me to do it, and by doing it I am honoring Him. When I honor Him, miraculous things happen. Because I am obedient, my husband changes. I have seen God's hand in the healing of our relationship due to His putting this book in my hands. The principles are hard because they go against every thread of our habits and things that the world teaches us, but if you are a woman of God, than you will want to live as He wants you to, and not like the world tells us is ok. It will challenge you, but if you follow its principles (which are completely backed up by scripture) your marriage will prosper. If you are still stuck in believing the lies of the world, you will need to work on this area first by getting into the Word, or you will see this book as a radical zealots point of view. God's Word is not take and pick, it is 100% true. You need to accept this before you read this book!
