REVIEW: Bless Your Husband by Angela Mills of Bethany House


My thoughts:

 Bless Your Husband is just as up-to-date for twenty-first century wives as the colors on the book cover. Angela Mills gives lots of creative inspiration for ways that we as wives can help our husbands feel loved, supported, and respected—in short, blessed!

  There are tons of idea for reflection, prayer, verses to meditate upon, encouragement, and hands on activities that will improve your relationship and how well your life runs together.  It's not just another marriage book that hammers submission etc. It's a way of practically serving, resurrecting your love if it's needs help, and focusing on the good. It explains submission in a way that makes sense for the modern couple, but it doesn't discard the Biblical meaning.

  This book comes in paperback and in e-book form. Definitely invest in the paperback. The e-book format, with the fill-in-the blanks, is simply not very user friendly. You could get a notebook to write in, but I found myself just skipping over things instead. Consequently, I didn't finish the entire book. I can tell she's on to something here though. Click on the excerpt link below, and see for yourself.

Read an excerpt.

From the publisher: 
Sometimes, choosing to love your husband is hard. Whether you've been married one year or 31 years, chances are he's done things that have frustrated you, angered you, hurt you, or flabbergasted you. But after arguing over how to load the dishwasher yet again, you might be wondering how you can show him that you really do love him.

In as little as 15 minutes a day, you can do something meaningful for your husband and grow in your faith. From washing his car to writing a positive post about him on social media to watching his favorite movie with him, these pages are full of creative, simple, and interactive ideas on how to bless your husband. You'll discover daily Scripture verses, inspirational readings, and journaling prompts to encourage you as well!

  1. Sounds like a very practical and spot on book. After 40 years the biggest thing for is to just not say it if you get my meaning. It really does keep the peace and makes our days so much kinder since we are always together now.
