of whom shall I be afraid?

The Beautiful Wife Book Review and Give Away

Read my review and check out my give away below.

Focused on Christ, Fulfilled in Marriage

SUMMARY:  Marriage is hard work!
     When Sandy Ralya's marriage was in trouble, she was desperate for help but didn't know how to ask for it.  Everyone else's marriage seemed so perfect.  How could she admit hers was not?
     Sandy eventually sought guidance from godly mentors and Christian counselors.  What she learned transformed her life . . . and then her marriage.  Now, she wants to provide other wives with the same nurturing and mentoring that saved her relationship.
     Whether your marital struggles are few or many, The Beautiful Wife offers biblical principles, practical tips, and inspiring stories to guide and inspiring stories to guide and encourage you as ou look for God's best in your marriage.  Use this book along with The Beautiful Wife Prayer Journal or use The Beautiful Wife Mentor's Guide to lead other women through a study of the book.  Visit to find all the tools you need to strengthen your marriage as you build loving, godly, and supportive relationships with other wives.
     "When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives," writes Sandy, "it's a beautiful thing indeed."

REVIEW:  Over the last few years, I've read a lot of books on the subjects of improving your marriage, becoming a better wife, understanding your husband better, and so on.  This book is a step above the rest.  Sandy uses her own marital struggles and experiences, along with other women, to help others find solutions to their problems.  She points out twelve areas wives and women struggle in and offers advice and remedies along with scripture.  Her approach is different and is not condemning or accusing.  She is not afraid to point to other authors that have helped her in her journey to a happier and healthier marriage.
    The Prayer Journal and Mentor's Guides are great companions to this book.  The Prayer Journal can help you recognize your areas of struggles and how God is using them to help you become the wife and mom you should be.  The Mentor's Guide is a great way to help others who may be going through some of the same things you are or did.  Sandy mentions how she sought help with other Christians women and encourages her readers to do the same.  The Mentor's Guide can be used one-on-one or in a bible study group.
      The Beautiful Wife is a great book that can help anyone looking to improve their marriage and themselves.

This book was provided by Litfuse Publicity Group for review without compensation.

Sandy Ralya is the founder and director of Beautiful Womanhood, a marriage mentoring ministry that offers seminars, small groups, and resources for Christian wives.  She and her husband, Tom, have been married since 1980.
