The Beautiful Wife by Sandy Ralya

I so enjoyed reading the Beautiful Wife.  What a way to study with other wives that have the same issues as you. This study focuses on a Christ-centered marriage, having a Biblical marriage is God honoring.  Each chapter has points of reflections and steps to take toward putting the chapter theme into action. The journal is nice to help in reinforcing what the chapter is all about and prayerfully putting it into action.  The Beautiful Wife is a 12 week study that can be use in small group setting as well as individually. 

The added resources:  mentor's guide and prayer journal are added bonuses to the book, mentoring aspect of this study. the mentor's guide is just the added touch for the leader to use for extra reinforcement.  As a mentor you can find additional help and resources online. And the prayer journal just nice for writing down your thoughts and scriptures as you follow along in the journey to being a beautiful wife. 

the chapter titles are as follows:
  • Equipping for the Journey
  • Attending to Self-Care
  • Living as the Genuine Article
  • Cultivating Mystique
  • Inviting Romance
  • Thinking Differently about Sex
  • Opening Lines of Communication
  • Speaking Truth in Love
  • Managing Money
  • Creating a Culture of Beauty
  • Professionalizing the roles of Wife and Mother
  • Choosing God's Best

About the book:

The Beautiful Wife uses these inspiring stories along with biblical principles to guide and encourage any wife looking for God's best in her marriage. The Beautiful Wife answers serious questions women have about their roles as wives. Discussing everything from romance and money to beauty, communication, and sex, Sandy challenges women to open up and share their journeys so that together they can see God's plan for their marriages. "It is my passion to help women discover God's heart for their marriage, just as the other women helped me," writes Sandy. "When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives, it's a beautiful thing indeed." The Beautiful Wife has two companion resources - Prayer Journal and Mentor's Guide.
