About the Book:
With the same candor and creativity that made Men Are Life Waffles--Women Are Like Spaghetti (more than 270,000 copies sold) a bestseller, author Pam Farrel gives wives 52 ways to wow their husbands and add spark to their marriages. Pam delivers humor in her fun woman-to-woman style through inspirational stories, godly advice, and easy-to-read offerings that include: 1) wow assignments: simple ways to support, love, and encourage husbands ; 2) wow wisdom: Bible verses and wisdom to help women cover their spouse with prayer; and 3)wow dates: creative ideas for everything from shared meals to weekend getaways
Newlyweds, married with kids, or empty nesters will appreciate these ideas crafted for the busy life. A woman can try one idea a week for a year or take on a few at a time to deepen her spiritual, emotional, and physical bond with her loved one.
I've had this on my Kindle, via NetGalley for some time and it finally caught my eye. In short, for each of the 52 sections, Pam Farrel, a minister's wife and author, tells a story or otherwise relates her point to real life. She talks about why something is important in marriage (like laughter for instance). She quotes scripture about it and then suggests a date with your husband that encompasses that trait--like a trip to a comedy club. While not a marriage counseling guide, it does remind women to make time for their husband and to remember both the things that attracted you years ago and the good traits he has now. Without being a guilt-inducer it gives things every woman can do to put a little more fun and depth in her marriage (and not just in the bedroom, though it is certainly mentioned). Grade B.
