If My Husband would change, I'd be happy by Rhonda Stoppe
If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy: And Other Myths Wives Believe (Harvest House, August 2015)
Like most brides on their wedding day, you no doubt were filled with love for your husband and the hope of a happy life together.
But perhaps today, as the realities of life together have settled in, those happy expectations are going unfulfilled. And it’s tempting to think, “If only my husband would change, I’d be happy.”
That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In the process, she addresses such important topics as
—understanding your husband’s need for your unconditional respect
—rekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first place
—refusing to believe the lie that you’d be happier married to someone else
—learning to be content in the midst of financial struggles
—thinking about sex from a biblical worldview
If you desire to rekindle the love and hope you felt on your wedding day, this book will go a long way toward making that dream come true.
Contains discussion questions and personal reflections at the end of each chapter.
My opinion: I was not overly thrilled to read another marriage book as I have read quite a few and I figured it would be a lot of the same information rehashed, but I was very surprised to find that this book was different from most books on this subject and I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. Filled with refreshing honesty and humor this book was very thought provoking and I feel that it apply applied to myself. Sometimes it is so easy to buy into the myths that are floating around out there and sell yourself short but this book really addresses those myths and helps one think differently about your marriage and focus on the positives and the things that caused you to fall in love with your husband.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
