Dear Wife: Letters from a Help Meet - Reading List

Dear Wife: Letters from a Help Meet

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

There are some books I read that do not actually impact me simply because my life hasn't traveled anywhere near the writer's path.  However, that doesn't mean that reading such books are a waste of time.

Books give glimpses into other's lives and in seeing these lives that are different from mine my empathy grows.  My ability to truly listen to others and feel their pain grows. And for that reason I want to recommend a brand new ebook that my blogging sister has recently published. (Do not get me wrong, there have been days when life is hard, and I believe the lies of these emotions, but while I was reading this book I was not in that spot...)

Misty has put together a book that is full of letters she has written to wives who are struggling - struggling in many different areas, so there is something inside this one for every wife, at least at some point in her marriage.

Dear Wife...  Book Review {Reading List}

Mostly, for me that is, this book was a great glimpse into Misty's life, as she shares her heart with her readers.  She shared how life was not matching up to her dreams of what marriage should be, how that reality showed how her expectations had to change and how she slowly changed her perspective to see how God had planned a wonderful marriage for her and a joyful life. Although she does admit that life does not always make it easy to see the wonderful or the joyful. 

Dear Wife Book Review {Reading List}

Each chapter is a short letter to a specific wife in need, where Misty shares how she has felt those feelings. 
  • the wife who feels alone
  • the wife who feels unloved
  • the wife who feels unwanted
  • the wife who feels unattractive
  • the wife who feels overwhelmed
  • the wife who feels unmotivated
  • the wife who lives worried
  • the wife who lives exhausted
  • the wife who is depressed
  • the wife who is stressed
  • the wife who is angry
  • the wife who feels unloving.
And then each chapter ends with a sweet prayer for "each" wife. Granted you could feel like one particular wife today, and then none the next... these are words that will be there for when you need a little extra encouragement. 

Reading List Rating:

If you are looking for some encouragement from another wife today, this might just be perfect for you! Or like me, you might simply enjoy this one as a way to see into a different life and grow your heart.
