For Married Women Only by Tony Evans

Book Description:
How is a wife to love her husband? By learning three things, says Tony Evans: how to submit, seduce, and surrender to her husband. Out of these three principles a godly marriage will grow.

In For Married Women Only, pastor and author Tony Evans explores these three principles in a straight-forward yet encouraging manner. He unpacks the touchy topic of submission and lays out the rewards inherent in this biblical model. On seduction, Evans looks at the quality of attractiveness and how embodying it can be pleasing to your spouse and to God. And with surrender, readers will examine why a wife is the perfect helpmate for her husband and how to combat attitudes opposed to God’s design.

Originally published in 2002 as Tony Evans Speaks Out on a Woman’s Role in the Home, this booklet has sold nearly 38,000 copies. Use it alone or with the companion volume, For Married Men Only.

My Thoughts:

This is a good read. It gives you helpful information to put into action to improve your own personal enjoyment of your marriage. If you are interested in improving YOURSELF as a wife, this is a definite read. It gives sound Biblical step-by-step activities that you, as a wife, should be doing if you are wanting to improve your marriage. Be warned, however...this book is for the WIVES only. It doesn't address the husband's role in any more than a glimpse. He reserves that for another book. He points out how God expects us to act and when He expects us to act in ways to help our husbands as well as ourselves. The author doesn't say it will be easy, but it will be worth all your effort because your reward will be God's pleasure in you.....and your pleasure in Him and improvements you will see in your marriage.
I would rate this book a 4/5. It is very interesting and helpful. If you are looking for something to help you improve your marriage--look for this book!
