Driven demanding women achieve higher positions better salaries and praise for their ambition. They learn to be confident take-charge leaders who can handle anything on their own. Yet when it comes to their marriages those same traits can backfire. After all no one goes into marriage hoping for a promotion. What is a wife to do April Cassidy knows this struggle firsthand. She thought she was a great Christian wife and begged God to make her passive husband into a more loving involved godly leader. Instead God opened her eyes to changes that she needed to make such as laying down her desire for control and offering genuine uncondi- tional respectnot just loveto her husband. The Peaceful Wife focuses on Cassidys experience and its life-changing properties providing a template for others to follow. Cassidys conclusions may be as shocking to readers as they were to her but she backs up her own tale with stories from her blog readers and also includes recommendations for further study. She walks through baby steps on how to change addressing questions such as What is respect How can you show respect How is being respectful different from being loving In the end The Peaceful Wife is a powerful path to Gods design for women to live in full submission to Christ as Lord.
