The Irresistible Husband (By Jason Gratehouse)The promo says, “Are you ready to restore the passion back into your marriage? In The Irresistible Husband, you will learn time-honored, Biblical principles for doing so…” and Jason delivers on that promise. This book is all about what you can do to change how your wife thinks and feels about you. It is an easy read because it is broken into concise, bite size chapters. The book is fairly short, but there is no fluff or filler, so it is dense with quality advice on becoming the husband that she simply can’t resist! [Kindle, Nook, or PDF]

You’re Already Amazing (Holley Gerth)Reading this book is like a hug, a great cup of coffee and the best encouragement you’ve ever had all rolled into one. Holley walks you through a number of simple exercises to discover your unique design and, in doing so, helps you toss a load of lies and wrong expectations off of your back. Each page offers an insight, a bit of wisdom or an encouragement. I walked away from it with a renewed appreciation for who God created me to be and an excitement for my life’s journey. I also saw more clearly the dangers of the comparison trap. [Paperback or Kindle]

Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship, and Life Together

By Mark and Grace Driscoll

Being friends with your spouse is important – what a concept! Mark and Grace deal openly about honesty, openness, dealing with sin, and sex. They cover real marriage in a real way, with plenty of real life examples drawn from their own marriage. Among other things we love about this book is that Mark says it’s the principles, not the methods that are important. We also appreciate that the book both provides fish and teaching couples how to fish.

Fierce Women: The Power of a Soft WarriorKimberly Wagner

This is a very challenging book. From my perspective it is about integrity and allowing God to shape how you express your inner strengths, particularly in the marriage relationship. The book would be great for personal study or small discussion groups. There are truckloads of very challenging questions and you get a bird’s eye view of the author’s personal struggle in this area. I found her story to be very encouraging and insightful.

Who Calls Me BeautifulRegina Franklin Who Calls Me Beautiful is a book that tackles a subject which has become so prevalent in our image obsessed society. For those of us who have struggled with seeing ourselves as truly beautiful, or have a daughter who will undoubtedly face the challenges of living in a society fixated upon outward perfection, this book is a must. The chapters are short and engaging, and I particularly enjoyed the Personal Reflection questions featured at the end of each of them. This book is a journey to self discovery, greater confidence, and a call to women everywhere to find our beauty in that which is of true value, rather than in the illusion of outward perfection.

Who Calls Me Beautiful?

The Sexually Confident Wife Shannon EthridgeThe Sexually Confident Wife is an insightful book about married sexuality. I was deeply impressed with Shannon’s personal transparency and ability to discuss frankly, yet graciously, some of the more challenging bedroom issues.

Intimate Issues Dillow & Lorraine Pintus Intimate Issues is a remarkable book for women about married sexuality. Comes with a twelve-week Bible study.
