What does it mean to be beautiful?

What wife doesn't want to be beautiful . . . in the eyes of her husband most of all.  In The Beautiful Wife, Sandy Ralya shares some very practical principles, based in scripture, on how to reach that goal.  The lessons have little, if anything, to do with outward beauty so coveted by many.  Sandy directs her readers to go deep and get down to the nitty-gritty hard work of making marriage work, leading women to the inner beauty that really matters. 

Sandy tackles the "biggies" -- things like communication, money, romance, sex.  And she comes from a down-to-earth perspective, admitting her own flaws and problems and the lessons she has learned through experience.

The Beautiful Wife can easily be used as a tool for individual reading, and it is well-designed for small group study.  It also comes with a mentor's guide and prayer journal.  The mentor's guide gives helpful instruction for anyone who might serve as a leader of a study group.  The prayer journal leads the reader to delve more deeply into scripture and to put into action the lessons from the main book.

I look forward to spending more time studying back through the lessons and perhaps having the opportunity to study these important topics with other women at some time in the future.

More about the book:

The Beautiful Wife uses 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.
