Review: If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy by:Rhonda Stoppe
About the Book:
Like most brides on their wedding day, you no doubt were filled with love for your husband and the hope of a happy life together. But perhaps today, as the realities of life together have settled in, those happy expectations are going unfulfilled. And it's tempting to think, "If only my husband would change, I'd be happy."
That myth is but one of many that Rhonda Stoppe dispels in her easy-to-read exploration of what it takes to experience a truly happy marriage. In the process, she addresses such important topics as understanding your husband's need for your unconditional respect rekindling the love that drew you to your husband in the first place refusing to believe the lie that you'd be happier married to someone else learning to be content in the midst of financial struggles thinking about sex from a biblical worldview
If you desire to rekindle the love and hope you felt on your wedding day, this book will go a long way toward making that dream come true.
Contains discussion questions and personal reflections at the end of each chapter.
When you first get married and for many years thereafter you are stuck in a honeymoon phase in more ways than one. You are building your life with this person and everything seems all cupcakes and roses and life just seems so grand and it has turned out to be everything you thought it would. Then boom something enters your life and it seems like your life is laying in pieces on the floor. And you wonder how did it ever get to this point. What happened?!
Well I'm going to be the first one to tell you that it can be a lot of things but one thing that will get you to a very unhappy place very quickly is the wrong expectations that we have of our spouse and everything that got you to that point. The love that your are expecting can only come from place and that's Jesus Christ. The author of If My Husband Would Change, I'd Be Happy, has written a book to dispel these myths of marriage along with many others to get us to a place of reflection and change.
Based completely on scripture she gets us to see our role as God sees the church and upon doing that she gives us a way of dealing with the bumpy and down right rocky times in our marriage so that there are more good times to reflect on and build on. With God at the base and foundation of our marriages many things tend to work themselves out. I know because I have been there. I like the advice that the author offers and she knows her stuff!
