Women: you're not alone in your marriage. You never have been, and you never will be. While it may not always feel like it, God desires for you to have a relationally healthy, emotionally engaged, and spiritually mature husband with whom you can share your days.
In Loving Him Well, Gary Thomas builds on concepts from his best-selling book Sacred Marriage to reveal the inner workings of a man's heart and mind. He delves into Scriptures that help women gain biblical insight to influence their husbands. Exploring the research of neuroscientists, trained counselors, and abuse victim advocates, Gary also interviews dozens of wives to find what has worked and what hasn't as they've sought to build the best marriage possible. In this newly updated version of Sacred Influence, Gary Thomas outlines practical applications you can begin using today.
Thomas desires to "encourage women who are in good marriages that could get even better; and offer hope and a new path forward to women who feel invisible or marginalized in their marriage." You'll discover the influence you can gain and the peace of mind you can build when you go first to God for your worth, validation, protection, and provision and then learn how to use that platform to help your husband draw closer to you and closer to God.
After decades of marriage ministry, ministering to couples of various walks of life in one of the largest cities in America, and gaining a new sensitivity for many of the issues facing contemporary women, Gary has rewritten this book, adding new stories to help wives understand, love, and influence their husbands. Loving Him Well offers encouragement and biblically based support for the transformation of your marriage, drawing you and your husband closer together, the way God intended.
I found this book extremely valuable as a wife. It spoke to my heart in profound ways and helped me allow more love than resentment in. Gary has an amazing way of delivering God’s word and underscoring the importance of our relationship with Him. It’s the desire to please our Heavenly Father that provides the necessary motivation to convict us in taking Godly actions when our bruised egos and broken hearts want to turn away from a husband who is not meeting our emotional needs.
God’s ways are always best, and again Gary Thomas shows the way with compassion, and kindness. His reading is so engaging and I recommend this book to any wife who feels alone or overlooked in her marriage. It will uplift you, Challenge you and encourage you to act in ways that honor you and God.
Get this book! And then share it with someone you love.
