52 Ways to Wow Your Husband: How to Put a Smile on His Face...Review

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:
  • wow assignments: simple ways to support, love, and encourage husbands
  • wow wisdom: Bible verses and wisdom to help women cover their spouse with prayer
  • 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 was not familiar with Pam and Bill Farrel or their ministry, but the title of this book was too good to pass up.  Written for women, it's a short, easy read with 52 ideas or suggestions for improving your relationship with your husband.  There are thoughts and examples, assignments and bible verses.  Pam is not afraid to talk about intimacy and sex and the important part it plays in a marriage, but sex is not the focus of the book.  The focus is more on supporting, encouraging and loving your husband and practical suggestions for doing so.

I think this would be an entertaining, interesting book for women who are actively looking for help strengthening their marriage relationship and even women who aren't.  I found several chapters that were interesting and had merit and relativity to my life.

Thanks to First Wildcard and Harvest House Publishers for the opportunity to review this book.  You can read the first chapter here. You can learn more about Pam Farrel here.  You can purchase your own copy here.

Read 8/11
