Book Review - The Virtuous Life Of A Christ-Centered Wife

The Virtuous Life Of A Christ-Centered Wife

The book has 130 pages and is divided into 18 lessons. When it first arrived my plan was to do a chapter a day, making it an 18-day study. But, shortly thereafter, I discovered that Darlene was hosting a twice-weekly study on her website, so I decided to follow along and finish up the study with the group.

I enjoyed the study very much. Each lesson, which is fairly short and easy to read, focuses on a different virtue of Biblical womanhood. Each lesson offers applicable and inspiring ways to grow closer to God and your husband, and each concludes with the S-O-A-P (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) method of study, which encourages you to dig deeper into God's Word and apply what you've learned to your own marriage.

I recommend The Virtuous Life Of A Christ-Centered Wife to wives everywhere who seriously desire, and are willing to pursue, a Christ-centered marriage, and I know that you will enjoy Darlene's honesty and transparency as much as I do.  

"I'd rather be a crown than a trophy wife; 
I'd rather have virtue than vogue."

The Virtuous Life of a Christ-Centered Wife is written in the format of an 18-part study for daily or weekly reflection.

Not only is it a powerful tool for personal growth, it's also an ideal study-guide for small groups!

Each lesson leads you through one virtue at a time, offering you applicable and inspiring ways for a wife to grow closer to God and her husband. The virtues discussed are these:

*Purity
*Self-control
*Love
*Diligence
*Patience
*Kindness
*Humility
*Faith
*Forgiveness
*Joy
*Passion
*Radiance
*Encouragement
*Balance
*Goodness
*Trust
*Courage
