Publisher's Summary

Women: you're not alone in your marriage. You never have been, and you never will be. While it may not always feel like it, God desires for you to have a relationally healthy, emotionally engaged, and spiritually mature husband with whom you can share your days.

In Loving Him Well, Gary Thomas builds on concepts from his best-selling book Sacred Marriage to reveal the inner workings of a man's heart and mind. He delves into Scriptures that help women gain biblical insight to influence their husbands. Exploring the research of neuroscientists, trained counselors, and abuse victim advocates, Gary also interviews dozens of wives to find what has worked and what hasn't as they've sought to build the best marriage possible. In this newly updated version of Sacred Influence, Gary Thomas outlines practical applications you can begin using today.

Thomas desires to "encourage women who are in good marriages that could get even better; and offer hope and a new path forward to women who feel invisible or marginalized in their marriage." You'll discover the influence you can gain and the peace of mind you can build when you go first to God for your worth, validation, protection, and provision and then learn how to use that platform to help your husband draw closer to you and closer to God.

After decades of marriage ministry, ministering to couples of various walks of life in one of the largest cities in America, and gaining a new sensitivity for many of the issues facing contemporary women, Gary has rewritten this book, adding new stories to help wives understand, love, and influence their husbands. Loving Him Well offers encouragement and biblically based support for the transformation of your marriage, drawing you and your husband closer together, the way God intended.

A must read for any wife!

I found this book extremely valuable as a wife. It spoke to my heart in profound ways and helped me allow more love than resentment in. Gary has an amazing way of delivering God’s word and underscoring the importance of our relationship with Him. It’s the desire to please our Heavenly Father that provides the necessary motivation to convict us in taking Godly actions when our bruised egos and broken hearts want to turn away from a husband who is not meeting our emotional needs.

God’s ways are always best, and again Gary Thomas shows the way with compassion, and kindness. His reading is so engaging and I recommend this book to any wife who feels alone or overlooked in her marriage. It will uplift you, Challenge you and encourage you to act in ways that honor you and God.

Get this book! And then share it with someone you love.

Exceptional book for women (not just wives)

I found this book very intriguing. The author quotes multiple scriptures as the basis for his insights. He quotes several other authors and people throughout history even. I say it's a good book not only for wives because as women we have friends who struggle through situations we may not can relate to. This book covers such a wide range scenarios that I feel much more aware of struggles that husbands and wives go through. As a divorced mother in a relationship, I found it very easy to follow. He has case-stories but it is not the only way he expresses his points. I was surprised how long the book was. and to me, it was just more insight for the price!

This is my first ever marriage book to read !

3 years into my marriage I have to say if I had read this book during my first year of marriage I probably would have saved myself and my husband some argument time lol :). We are young newly weds and this book was beyond helpful in giving me full understanding of the true conveyor marriage and how to understand my husband and love and except him for who he is better:) also how to love him into change:) if that makes since! This book would be great for ANY WOMEN that is willing to try to do better despite the males willingness :). I purchase 3 paper copies of this book for some on my dear friends from amazon and mailed it them as gifts along with prayer that they receive the blessing I received in taking the time to read ! :)

Loved it

This book really helped me see the perspective of God concerning my marriage. I am so hopeful since I read it. God is in control and is my helper in my marriage. I learned to focus on the positive sides of my husband and declare prayer over his weakness. I also resonated with the wives stories on their mentality in their marriage because I struggle with that mindset also. thank you for this book.
