The Good Wife's Guide by Darlene Schacht Book Review
If you have ever read Darlene Schacht's blog Time-Warp Wife you will know that her passion is to encourage women to embrace their calling as a godly wife. I have so enjoyed Darlene's blog and now she has combined many of her "teachings" in her new ebook The Good Wife's Guide. She wants each wife to be a help meet to their husband. That is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your husband! The Good Wife's Guide helps us to manage ourselves by making faith and family a first priority. You must also learn to be unselfish and loving because by serving your family, you are serving the Lord! Darlene gives many practical ways to be sure we are the right path for our purpose as wives.
I really want to practice the principles in this book. I was very excited to find a book that not only gave me what do, buy why! One thing that I want to do is put up Bible verses in each room of my house that will serve as reminders of what God calls me to do. Darlene lists these in her book. I love how Darlene doesn't tell us what we must do, but what we are asked to do for the sake of the high calling of being a wife. I think so many in this day don't realize how much a wife can be the anchor in the home and also be the helper of her husband. There is also a large practical section where she outlines housekeeping procedures. I have started using her methods and I'm amazed at what I have accomplished. I highly recommend Darlene's new book! Be a good wife!
