If My Husband (Review)
This review is for the book "If My Husband Would Change, I'd be Happy" by Rhonda Stoppe. Obviously the title of this book is very eye-catching! I knew I was going to like this book because I think we have all been sucked into the mindset that if our spouse would change, we would be happier. This is a great book which mainly focuses on Rhonda's viewpoint, but every chapter includes a bit from her husband Steve, and his outlook on the different topics throughout the book.
Each chapter talks about a different aspect of marriage, such as respecting one another, feeling like you would be happier being married to someone else, or finances. Rhonda uses scripture and real-life experiences to guide us on a path that is godly and God-honoring. At the end of each chapter is a section called "Thinking It Through" which has scripture references and questions about those scriptures that make you think deeper about the theme of the chapter. There is also a section called "Living it Out" which can help you put things into practice that you need to change. Rhonda also has a website that she encourages readers to go to for extra video or audio links.
This book is an easy read and it will really help you self-reflect. Rhonda asks simple questions throughout the chapters that made me really think as I answered them on my own. I chuckled as I read some portions of the book and recognized myself in horror in other portions! I think this is a great book for wives to read and I highly recommend it.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
