What Women Need To Know

I love listening to Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss and since she is on the radio at a time in the day when I am the busiest I have taken to downloading the day's program and listen as I prepare breakfast or supper or am nursing a baby. Earlier this month she had a 4-day series featuring Shaunti Feldhahn who is the author of the book For Women Only: What You Need to Know About the Inner Lives of Men. I blogged briefly about this book awhile back when I first read it. Needless to say, this is a must-have book for any woman who is trying to understand how her husband is wired. It is about seven things "we women just don’t get about men and things that, most of the time, our husbands really desperately wish we knew" but don't know how to explain. While it is written by a woman, she gathered all of the information from men and put it into a form that women would enjoy. A few things I was vaguely aware of. For women, our highest need is typically to feel loved and cherished. But the highest need for a man is to feel his wife’s respect and trust and admiration and honor. Reading the book was great but now having listened to the series for the second time this week I have been so encouraged as I was reminded of how I can best meet my husband's needs and help to make him the best that he was created to be. I have learned so much and I encourage you to go to Revive Our Hearts and listen to this series or just read the transcripts.

Ephesians 5:33b (Amplified Version)
....Let the wife see that she respects and reverences her husband” (“that she notices him, regards him, honors him, prefers him, venerates, and esteems him; and that she defers to him, praises him, and loves and admires him exceedingly.”)

I saw your comment on Kindred Hearts and stopped by to visit your blog. Nice to meet you!

I have seen Shanti's book and just haven't picked it up; but will do so very soon.

Happy Day!

I have never read this book. It sounds really good.

I intend to go over and check out Revive our Hearts and listen to the broadcasts. I know i can always improve in the area of respect, though i do try.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Have a good weekend,

This sounds like a good book. I'll have to add it to my 'to read' list.
