Review: Letters to My Daughters: The Art of Being a Wife by:Barbara Rainey
About the Book:
Barbara Rainey Offers Sage Advice on the Art of Being a Wife
Radio personality and bestselling author Barbara Rainey knows firsthand the challenges newly married couples face. Dismayed by Hollywood depictions of marriage and the seemingly easy solution of divorce, she sees a desperate need for a voice of experience, a mentor who has been there and understands--and can encourage, coach, and care.
As her daughters began their married lives, Barbara wanted to share with them, and now you, some of the lessons learned throughout her own marriage as well as those gleaned from years of ministry to couples. In these heartfelt, insightful letters, she answers the tough questions and addresses the realities of marriage. Through personal stories--including her own mistakes--and practical advice, Barbara provides the tools and direction to help you become a godly wife and determine your part in achieving a better marriage.
First of all, I was afraid to open this book. It has a beautiful cover that is perfect for a newlywed. The best advice out there, is tried and true advice and couple with that Godly advice than your marriage will be headed in the right direction from the word go.
Marriage is NOT for the faint hearted. It is HARD! No other word is befitting it other than just plain hard. It can be the best time of your life, if you follow Biblical counsel. Ask me how I know. If God is at the center at all times, it will not fail.
The author knows this all too well. She has shared it with her daughters and is now sharing it with all of us. For those of us that have already lost a mother this is a great substitute for the advice that she would of expected to receive from our caring mother on our big day. This book you make a great gift for a new bride!
