Are you someone that wishes your marriage was better? Do you wonder at times if all couples struggle to get along as much as yours does?
Being married can be great! ….but not always. Every wife that has been married more than a month knows that happily ever after is actually a commitment and a decision to work hard at it.
A good marriage takes effort, and books can be very helpful in growing and learning exactly how we ought to treat our husbands, and how we can become an amazing wife. Often we don’t quite realize how our actions and attitudes affect our relationship with our husband.
Are you someone that is willing to put in some effort in making your marriage the best it can be? Are you someone that’s unwilling to give up?
Then these books are for you.

Here are five books every Christian wife should read.
Written by Stormie Omartian, this book is best to read a chapter a day. It contains 31 chapters, so it’s great used as a one month devotional, along with your bible. Every chapter contains a prayer for your husband. Read, apply, and watch your marriage transform before your eyes! The power of prayer if our most important asset in a marriage.
Written by Dorcas Stutzman, of Stutzman Singers. Dorcas has a very personal style of writing, and is very relatable. This book touches on how much we actually place our trust in God, and how the controlling spirit creeps in unawares. This book opened my eyes to some areas I was very blind in. While that’s not always pleasant, it can bring about great improvements in your life.
Written by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. What causes us to become negative and discouraged?
This book isn’t so much intended for wives as it is to women in general. However, our attitudes and thinking affect our married life as well. I wrote a review here.
Written by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. Wow, this book is amazing! A husband is supposed to love his wife, as Christ loves the church. Unconditionally, and even when we are unloving.
However, the wife is supposed to respect her husband in the same way. This book is a must-read for every wife. If you only read one book from this list (although I recommend them all), this one has the potential to transform your marriage. This one would be great to read together with your husband if he is willing.

Written by Debi Pearl, this book tends to bring out a very controversial attitude, but for the wife that is intentional about improving her marriage, Debi Pearl has great points.
What does the Bible say about a woman’s role in marriage? Are our roles supposed to be divided 50/50 between man and woman? The Bible doesn’t teach that. This book goes into great detail of what God’s word says, and how you can apply it to your life.
Make your marriage of great importance, and know that it can get better if you will seek God’s face in it.
