Is it your husband's job to make you happy?

About the book:

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.

About the author:

Rhonda Stoppe is the No Regrets Woman. She is an author and speaker dedicated to helping women live life with no regrets. With more than 20 years' experience as a mom, mentor, and pastor's wife, Rhonda's wisdom and experience helps women discover significance in God and His specific purpose for their lives, connect biblical principles to everyday decisions, develop a loving marriage that others dream about, and influence the next generation by raising children with integrity.

My Review:
Rhonda Stoppe has written an open and honest book for all women out there, ones who have been married for many years or just a short while or for those who are engaged and planning to be married.  Rhonda addresses thoughts that many women may (and probably will) think at some point about her husband and her marriage in this book, each chapter focusing on a specific thing.  Biblical characters and their stories are shared as well as personal friends and acquaintances and her own personal experience.  A male's perspective is shared as well and discussion and reflection questions for each chapter.  I found this book to have many things to think on and consider in my own life.  This is a quick read and one that would be good to pick up and read certain chapters in times of feeling frustrated or down as this is an encouraging read and a great reminder that we are not alone on this journey of life.
