About the book (provided by Litfuse)...(my review follows) If My Husband Would Change, I’d Be Happy: And Other Myths Wives Believe(Harvest House, August 2015)
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.

And I thought... A very modern approach excellent for all women. Although this reader didn't care for the title. And actually neither did The Cowboy. I get the concept. But, I think that there are women that wouldn't buy the book based on the title. Especially if your in a marriage that is struggling. There have been times in my marriage that if I had bought this title I wouldn't have left it laying around for The Cowboy to see. With that said . . .
I encourage you to buy it anyway. The teaching is Biblically sound. And in my opinion if Elizabeth Barnes endorsed it (and she did) then you need to read it!
This one is a keeper for me (along with the titles by Elizabeth Barnes).
It was a simple read. Filled with humor and light heartedness but also filled with great insight and sound scriptural advice.
I received a lovely complimentary signed copy from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
