CONGRATS TO ANA DEJESUS!!!!!!×57864           
I had the pleasure of reading A Wife’s Secret to Happiness: Receiving, Honoring, and Celebrating God’s Role for You in Your Marriage by Jean Weaver and I am excited not only to review it but also choose one lucky person to have their own copy of this excellent read!
I am sooooooo glad and thankful for this opportunity because quite frankly it was a perfect read at the perfect time for me! I definitely consider myself a strong, independent woman and sometimes the “S” word can be a bit of a challenge to me.  Jen mentions the word submission in the first chapter and does a perfect job at easing her readers into this sometimes touchy topic.
I think this is a great topic whether you are married, engaged, in a long term serious relationship or even if you are currently single if you are planning on being in a relationship in the future.   Jen explains that submission to your husband to lead the relationship is trusting in your faith in God.  I am sure you agree that we all seek to be genuinely happy in our relationships but sometimes the lemons that life throws at us throw us for a loop.  I felt I needed to hear this message of submission because as a full-time RV family we spend tons of time together causing a tiny battle of leadership at times lol.
We are both passionate about helping others figure out their own definition of freedom which in turn sometimes has us competing for who takes the lead.  Jen reminded me to allow hubby to be the one to ask God for which direction to take because at the end of the day we will reach our final destination and our goals “in his time.”  I grew up in a pretty religious household and after reading this book it made me also realize that many of the things she spoke about have been in my subconscious and for the most part I have been with these principles helping my current relationship be much stronger than my previous ones.
Something I loved was the bonus printables in each chapter just in case you do not want to write all over your book!

    I understand that there can be only one captain of a ship and I am fine with my husband being him. H dis religious. I am not. I am comfortable be submissive in the way I defer to him as leader. Using that word in any other reference is unacceptable to me and to him because he wants a partner.

    That sounds like a great book! I agree that the word submission can be misleading. It sounds like the author covered it really well. Submission does not mean that the husband dominates the wife.

    It sounds like this author has an interesting perspective. I’d be curious to learn more about how to discusses submission because it’s not something I believe in.

    I’d be curious to read this myself and see more of what the author’s take on submission is. I don’t go for today’s meaning of the word – I am my own woman, and will not submit to the control of any man. That being said, if I find myself in the company of a man that I truly trust and believe in, submission to his leadership happens naturally – and even more so when he shows that he trusts and values my input.

    This sounds like such an interesting book and I’m glad that you enjoyed it and it came at a time in your life when you needed it. I think the concept of submission is very controversial for many women, especially women who are strong and independent. It sounds the author tries to deal with the concept in a way that makes it more acceptable.

    I totally love this, I don’t think she means submission in the way to people are thinking… Like in the bible God wants us to submit ourselves to our husbands and vice versa. I am looking forward to reading this book, and I read a lot of books about God, couples The power of the praying wife, the praying husband, love & respect, the love dare… Thanks for sharing this ?!.

    It sounds like a book that will teach you a lot of lessons about marriage. Submission is a tough one because we all have different opinions on it. I think we could all use some insight from this book.

    It’s an interesting read especially since it talk about submission. I personally don’t like the idea but I wouldn’t mind reading what the author has to say about it. Thanks for hosting a giveaway.

    I like books with interesting topics and the ones that make you think. Submission is definitely sort of tabu, but it’s important to see all the angles. Me and my wife are equal in our marriage and since we are both strong personalities, i’m not sure that would make either of us comfortable.

    Not entering as I live outside the United States, but saving this for when I’m in the states and can get my hands on a copy! Sounds like something our new marriage could really benefit from. I too see myself as fairly independent person and yet it almost scares me how dependent I’ve already become on my hubby. Always looking for the right balance and healthy examples of submission as well.

    While I don’t necessarily take the back seat to my fiance all the time, we are partners and sometimes that means letting the other take the lead in something. Submission definitely sounds like a terrible thing, but when done equally, it makes for a happy relationship! Balancing our strengths and weaknesses and all tat!

    Personally I don’t believe in the concept of submission but good for her for writing a book and for you sharing it as you are both clearly passionate about the topic. Good for you both x

    This book sounds interesting to read 🙂 I’ll search this to our nearest bookshop 🙂 Thanks for your recommendation.

    Jacky says:

    We are christian ourselves, but it is important to understand that these chapters were written by men, in a culture where women were and still are considered a property. We love the scriptures, but as husband and wife, whenever we find any verse that presents only women submission, we simply take the good part of the verse message and simply read it like this:

    Each one of you must love each other as you
    love yourselves, and both should respect each other.

    I have never read this book, but I hope it emphasizes that love and respect goes equally both ways.

    I don’t believe in submission at all. But in the interests of fairness I would be interested to read this book and find out more of the author’s point of view.

    Bel says:

    This would make a good read. I love how she touches such a sensitive topic because nowadays once you say submission, evryone gets alarmed but at work you see people bending over backward for someone they don’t even like.

    Not a wife yet but I love learning and reading books. This book is interesting and you have a great giveaway 🙂

    This sounds like an interesting book. I like that it covers not only on marriage but also the relationship with God. Marriage is give and take with no winner and no loser.

    Having just recently separated I can’t really say I wholly agree but I am staying positive. I think in a right relationship with the right partner happiness can be achieved.
