Consider: The Excellent Wife

As a bridal shower gift, I received a copy of The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I thoroughly appreciated that gift! The book covers a lot of ground and gave me a lot to think about as I became a wife.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and love your family almost as much. Be patient and kind and do not be selfish. Create such an atmosphere in your home that your husband as well as other family members will look forward to coming home. They will want to be around you instead of avoid you…

A wife who has a gentle and meek spirit from the Lord provides a calming, soothing, and reassuring atmosphere in her home. She trusts God deeply and does not panic at difficult circumstances. She has a quiet confidence that God will “work all things for good to those who love God…” (Romans 8:28). Her confidence and faith in God grows daily as she studies the Scriptures because she is “growing in the grace and knowledge of (her) Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18, adaptation added).
