My Review:   
This book was a very inspirational book. A lot of great wisdom and advice on praying certain ways for your husband. 

I did enjoy reading it and going over it with other ladies in the church at that time. But for some reason not sure I just was not captivated by it. Maybe due to already doing most of what was in side the pages. 

But I would recommend newly married women to read. 

I will leave it up to you to read for yourself and make your own decision on how or if it helps you. 

But for my review, I am giving this book a Breath of Life rating of:

Four Clock Rating!!!

Disclosure: This book is my own.  The opinions are mine. And your opinion may differ.

Rev. Kim.,
I read this book years ago, and I thought my husband needed changing. Well, I guess you know what I learned to pray..."Lord, change me." I have purchased copies of this for several young women in my life over the years; I recommend it often. Glad you reviewed this, though I must admit, I laughed when you wrote, that you're already doing most of it. May God continue to bless and keep you.
peace and good,
