A Wife’s Secret to Happiness” By Jen Weaver 

Book Review | Giveaway

Reading this book, I felt Jen easing me gently into ‘submission’ in the first chapter as she was obviously preparing me for the real discussion to come of the ‘S’ word in the following chapters. Being a strong, independent woman and activist for equality, I cannot lie, I struggled personally through each chapter. Like a toddler, kicking and screaming while she is being dragged by the arm to a scary place she did not want to go. Yet, I persisted, and I continued reading and kept an open mind. After a while, I realized it was not so scary after all. Many times it is the unknown or relinquishing control over our lives to another that causes this fear to be born within us.

 

The author explains how submitting to your husband to lead is trusting and living in your faith in God as He called you into “marital submission.”

By accepting her role as an equal yet submissive partner, she no longer vies for his position—a decision that makes room for her husband to learn to lead and love her as Christ designed. As a wife learns to recognize and align with leadership in her marriage, the fruit of her spousal partnership blesses many other areas of her life—including her career and ministry—increasing her authority.

Life is hard, marriage is hard, as are all types of relationships we enter into. Every marriage is different and has their own issues. I thoughtfully reflected on the purpose, challenges, and blessings in the author’s secrets to a healthy and happy marriage. I quickly realized this is a wifestyle for your lifestyle that when applied can change your direction when you feel lost and guide you on a smoother journey full of blessings.

The earliest recollection I have of my life was when I was six or seven years old. I loved playing outside with bushes, flowers, and nature around me, a trait that has followed me throughout my life. I enjoyed nature and did much thinking upon how did things come to be as they were. I knew that it was not by chance and observed that nature followed cycles; cycles of beginning, cycles of growth and cycles of death. I looked into the skies many times and observed the patterns there: the moon went through its phases as it revolved around the earth, held there in its position by some unknown force. The sun rose in the East and set in the West daily. The hours of daylight changed from long days of sunshine to very short days of sunshine and the moon varied accordingly. I looked into the night skies and saw the stars, each one following its pattern with regularity. All of this beauty and regularity could not be by chance, so I arrived at a premise that all the patterns and regularity were controlled; there had to be a God, an all-powerful being, who created all of this beauty and controlled the perfect timing of it all. Now I knew of this God but did not know Him. Could a human, just a little boy or anyone for that matter, come to know this being who created the universe and controlled it?
