Reading good marriage books for the Christian wife helps you grow as a person, as well as help you become a better wife.
Every woman that seeks to understand her husband better, and become a better person should read these books. I learned a lot from each of them.
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?
I know I have. Our marriage has gone through many hills and valleys over the years.
I couldn’t change my husband.
And neither can you.
I use to be an avid reader. In my heart of hearts, I still love to read. I especially love learning about new things. These days I don’t read nearly as much, with homeschooling five children. There never seems to be enough time in a day.
I always have to remind myself that God has given us just the right amount of time in each day to do the things He wants us to.
If I am too busy then I am doing too many unnecessary things.
I ahve read a LOT of marriage books inthe twelve years we have been married. Reading always encourgaed me to try harder to be a blessing to my husband.
I wanted to be the best wfe ever, but I quickly found that I failed in that area.
Here I’ll share 5 books that will benefit your marriage when you apply the teachings. You won’t become perfect, and neither will your husband, but you will be encouraged.
I find reading marriage books helps to remind me of the greater purpose of your relationship.
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.
But before we go on…..
I have something for you. Here are 26 ways you can tell your husband “I Love You” without saying it! Get it here.

Five books for Christian Wives To Improve Your Marriage
The Power of a Praying Wife.
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 tool in marriage.
Trust or Control.
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.
Lies Woman Believe,
Written by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. What causes us to become negative and discouraged? This book covers the lies the we sometimes fall for, without realizing it.
This book isn’t only intended for wives but for women in general. However, our attitudes and thinking affect our married life as well. I wrote a review here.
Love and Respect
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.

Created to Be His Helpmeet.
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? We are all created equal in God’s eyes, yet our roles differ.
This book goes into great detail about 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.
Reading good books helps you grow as a person, and reading great books can help you become a better wife.
Every woman that seeks to understand her husband better, and become a better person should read these books.
I learned a lot from each of them.
