Really for wives, not the guys

Husbands don't bother! Get Love & Respect instead.

Lysa robs Ephesians 5:33 of the 'respect' you need when she suggests you pray for you wife to 'love you in the way you need' just PRAY that your wife will demonstrate respect to you, really! ...if this book was written for men. However, later she quotes other scripture exactly.

Most of the stories and anecdotes are very condemning or demeaning to us guys. Except her own husband! Wow, not very encouraging. This book should have been titled: Men Are Not Good Enough To Be Husbands, Just Ask Your Wife

The only redeeming factor was since I bought this on Audible, I kicked the play speed up!

Sadly, Lysa 'borrows' many ideas from other authors in every chapter.

She justifies women's manipulating behaviors by calling it 'the language of hints' and acknowledges that the point of this language is to get 'what they want', deliberately making communication difficult to test your love. Not OK!

I think women will love this book and buy it for their husbands. Maybe that was the marketing angle.

Honestly, I think the author's heart is in the right place. However, from what I know of her, she writes and speaks for women's conferences, and this book proves it.

Predictable Content, Well - Intended

My wife slipped this into my Audible account which is not a good start. Being open to learning and understanding that I am the least knowledgeable person I know about how women think or feel I gladly listened to the book. Written by a woman, who interviewed a thousand women to get the content for this book, I feel the content is probably an accurate capture of what some women think or feel. It's mixed with fairly typical and predictable Bible Verses about how men are supposed to do "X" or supposed to do "Y" because the bible says so. It doesn't go much deeper into helping a man understand. It stays at the surface level that most mainline churches or pastors will give you a number of times each year, about pursuing the heart of your princess. But if your somewhat thick headed like me, just getting more lace laden guilt written in women's language does almost nothing to actually change the thinking. We know we don't do it right. You tell us this every day. Telling us how to do it or what you need in women's language without helping us have the "ah, hah!" moment doesn't do much to help us help you. Even the title is this subtle method. Becoming the Godly Husband Your Wife Desires... written by a woman, on behalf of women. So women are the authority of what constitutes a Godly Husband. Just ask them. Inside, one of the topics is that women desire the man to be the spiritual head of the household. But women will tell you how to do it and what that means. Admittedly, myself and most men hungry for God do not have all the answers, but women and pastors continually telling us we don't know what we are doing is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Not to mention there isn't a single book on Audible about Capturing His Heart. Oh yeah, that's because everyone assumes that men are ONLY driven by testosterone and sex which is such a lie. We actually have hearts and want to be engaged as whole human beings, but how many women and churches and pastors clump us into a box of testosterone?
Overall not bad and I would recommend it. She means well, but you will get a predictable side, much like Gary Smalley who focuses and makes his money by appealing to the women.

Don't create a big regret.

Don't be the individual that says, "I wish I read this book before I..." Help is here now no matter how you feel. There is hope for your marriage. Take a step. Keep the faith. And read books like this amazing body of work by Lysa TerKeurst.

Deep Introspection

Mannnnn....this book challenged me. Not in the best place in our marriage and I wish things were better but if it to be better it is going to require work. I will do everything to hold on to my faith and do what God wants me to do. It is my responsibility to be the spiritual leader of my household. I was uncomfortable reading this book because I realized my areas of short comings. Thank you for highlighting these and again thank you for raising the expectation.

Definitely for Married People!

Very good, Christian advice for couples (husbands in particular, obviously), spiritual, practical and everything in between. I appreciate that it's by a woman for men. Very much exclusively for couples, however. I will have to come back for this read when I'm married!
