Women may feel alone in their marriage, but they never have been, and never will be. It may not always seem like it, but God truly desires for women to have a relationally healthy, emotionally engaged, and spiritually mature husband.
In Loving Him Well, Gary Thomas expands some of the concepts he developed in Sacred Marriage to expose the inner workings of a man's heart. He uses Scripture as a framework to teach biblical insight to women searching to influence their husbands. Gary Thomas works through the research of neuroscientists, trained counselors, and abuse victim advocates, along with interviews he conducted with dozens of wives to discover what has worked and what hasn't as they attempted to build the best marriages possible. In this updated version of Sacred Influence, Gary Thomas presents practical applications that can be used right away.
Thomas wants 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.” Gain influence and peace of mind as you learn to go to God first for your worth, validation, protection, and provision. Use the resources you gain from this renewed mindset to draw your husband closer to you and closer to God.
Gary Thomas chose to rewrite Sacred Influence after gaining a new sensitivity for many of the issues facing women today. He introduces new stories and fresh illustrations to help wives understand, love, and influence their husbands. Loving Him Well is packed with biblically based support to strengthen your marriage, drawing you and your husband closer together, the way God intends.
