A wife longs to be unconditionally loved and accepted by her husband. As a husband, it is easy to take for granted that your wife already knows how much you love her—but sometimes she doesn't. How can you show your wife how much you love her? 30 Ways a Husband Can Bless His Wife is packed with 30 simple, fun, and affordable activities to show your wife that you love and appreciate her! From fun date night ideas to taking care of her least-liked chore, easily turn these basic activities and random acts of kindness into powerful blessings that will positively impact your marriage for a lifetime! Using the illustration of Christ and His bride and other Bible passages as models, John Trent shares practical ways to bless your wife in 5 key ways: Meaningful and appropriate touch A spoken message Attaching high value to the one being blessed Picturing a special future for him or her An active commitment to fulfill the blessing In every home, with every husband, there is a choice: a choice to bless his wife. A husband can choose to communicate that incredible gift of unconditional love and acceptance that his wife longs for... Or he can actively or passively withhold the blessing from his wife, opening the door to emotional hurt. This easy-to-read book will help you demonstrate the message that God has for all of us: wives in every home deserve to know that their husband and Jesus is crazy about them! Make this truth a reality for your wife and give her the gift of the Blessing so she can be free to serve others, gain personal strength, and grow in God's purpose for her. Help your wife embrace the truth that with God's love, she can do and be more than she even dreamed or imagined. Blessing others is a choice. Before turning to Jesus, author John Trent harbored resentment and hatred toward his alcoholic father for years. After he gave his life to Christ, John forgave his father and realized that he was given the same choice as his father: to bless or withhold the blessing from his own family. Since then John has shown millions of families how to break the cycle of rejection and bless one another.

Thousands of books have examined the effects of parents on their children. In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior now asks: what are the effects of children on their parents? In All Joy and No Fun, award-winning journalist Jennifer Senior tries to tackle this question, isolating and analyzing the many ways in which children reshape their parents' lives, whether it's their marriages, their jobs, their habits, their hobbies, their friendships, or their internal senses of self. She argues that changes in the last half century have radically altered the roles of today's mothers and fathers, making their mandates at once more complex and far less clear. Recruiting from a wide variety of sources—in history, sociology, economics, psychology, philosophy, and anthropology—she dissects both the timeless strains of parenting and the ones that are brand new, and then brings her research to life in the homes of ordinary parents around the country. The result is an unforgettable series of family portraits, starting with parents of young children and progressing to parents of teens. Through lively and accessible storytelling, Senior follows these mothers and fathers as they wrestle with some of parenthood's deepest vexations—and luxuriate in some of its finest rewards. Meticulously researched yet imbued with emotional intelligence, All Joy and No Fun makes us reconsider some of our culture's most basic beliefs about parenthood, all while illuminating the profound ways children deepen and add purpose to our lives. By focusing on parenthood, rather than parenting, the book is original and essential reading for mothers and fathers of today—and tomorrow.
