Are you married, or looking forward to the day that you will be? Planning for your wedding is the easy part, becoming one with your husband, well, that is a life long process. Sandra Ralya has written a devotional that is relevant to any women whether she is engaged, newly married or has been married a long time. I know I found this book helpful, and I have been married nearly 18 years.
The Beautiful Wife contains 12 meaty chapters that use examples from Sandra Ralya’s own experiences and include some of these topics: Prayer, Being Genuine, Mystique; Romance; Communication, and Speaking the Truth in Love. And it is filled with Bible references to make you think about your own situation. At the end of each chapter you will find journaling/discussion questions to help you to think through what you have learned.
No matter how long you have been married, or how good your marriage is there is always room for improvement. So if you like Bible studies this might be one you would like to have on your coffee table, or night stand.
I also received the Prayer Journal and Mentor’s Guide from the publisher. each of these little books are a nice edition to The Beautiful Wife devotional.
The Prayer Journal has places to write down pray requests, your prayers, and the answers you have received. Places to write down the Bible verses you are learning, as well as, what you have learned from reading them. I think it would fit well into your daily study.
The Mentor’s Guide is a nice tool for Bible study group leaders. It includes everything you need to lead a group study, and whether you are an experienced leader or it is your first time to lead a Bible Study Group I think you will find it very helpful.
About the Book:
The Beautiful Wife uses these inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God's best in her marriage. The Beautiful Wife answers serious questions women have about their roles as wives. Discussing everything from romance and money to beauty, communication, and sex, Sandy challenges women to open up and share their journeys so that together they can see God's plan for their marriages. "It is my passion to help women discover God's heart for their marriage, just as the other women helped me," writes Sandy. "When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives, it's a beautiful thing indeed." The Beautiful Wife has two companion resources - Prayer Journal and Mentor's Guide.
