25 Ways To Communicate Respect To Your Husband
25 Ways To Communicate Respect To Your Husband (a handbook for wives) by Jennifer Flanders is a small, short book with bite size chapters. The author recommends reading and focusing on one chapter per week to truly get into the habits of performing these steps to showing respect to your husband. Each short chapter includes Scriptures, quotes, and a list of "action items" that you can begin doing to actively communicate respect to your husband.
I've read Jennifer's previous book, Love Your Husband, Love Yourself and absolutely loved it. Therefore, I was thrilled that she had finally released a new book! LYHLY was a much lengthier book that went into a lot more detail about marriage, whereas this is a much shorter, briefer, and to the point guide directed solely at respect as opposed to a large treatise about marriage in general. Respect is an area I struggle with in my marriage and have trouble finding books that tangibly explain just HOW to respect your husband, not just say "you need to respect your husband because x". This is the book I've been searching for. Not only does it explain why your husband needs respect, it lays out an action plan for you to follow to communicate that respect to your husband in a way he will understand it. I highly recommend this book to all Christian wives who are seeking to uphold God's command to respect and reverence their husbands, as commanded in passages such as Ephesians 5:33. I love Mrs. Flanders' writing and hope she releases another book soon. She is full of wisdom and grace, and I love her writing style. After reading all her books and her Christmas Letters collection, I feel like she's a friend! Get this book - your husband will appreciate it!
