Reviews of Christian Marriage Books & Movies

I started reading marriage books to improve the condition of my relationship with my husband. I felt led to write reviews that included how each resource helped my marriage to encourage other couples to use some of these tools to promote growth in their relationships and to give better understanding of what each resource is. I want to urge all husbands and wives to nurture their marriages by choosing the right resources based on their needs.

You have an incredible gift, the gift of learning. We all learn through experience as well as through reading and researching.  One of the greatest tools used in retraining behaviors, improving, breaking habits, or making adjustments in life is learning. The more educated we are about ourselves and about the issues that concern us, the better we are at making choices that benefit us and others. I use to struggle with pornography, and one way my perspective and desire changed about it came as I learned more about its devastating affects to my body/mind, learning what the industry is truly […]

This is NOT your ordinary marriage book! I am currently reading a brand new book titled Jesus Is Better Than You Imagined by Jonathan Merritt. Picking it up it quickly became an inspiring piece that I knew I would want to share about, but it also didn’t take long for me to see the value this book will have on marriages all over the world. I never would have guessed that I would be recommending this book for married couples, but God has pressed it upon my heart as a necessary book for husbands and wives to invest in! Jonathan […]

I had the incredible honor of being able to interview Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow this week! As I woke up early Thursday morning, I was eager to chat with these two brave and godly women who are paving the way for Christians to openly discuss intimate issues. Dr. Juli Slattery wrote a book titled “No More Headaches” that revolutionized my perspective of sex in marriage and it was one of the first book reviews I have shared with the UW Community.  I highly recommend it to every wife I connect with. This week was a little rough.  My […]

Pulling Back The Shades: Erotica, Intimacy, and The Longings Of A Woman’s Heart by Dannah Gresh and Dr. Juli Slattery is a beautifully written, Biblical response to the rapidly growing trend of accepting and normalizing erotica, specifically 50 Shades of Grey, as well as addressing other issues that have to deal with sexual and emotional intimacy. {Check out my interview with Juli Slattery regarding sexual intimacy!} As much as this book is a powerful resource that confronts the issue of erotica, very specifically the series 50 Shades of Grey, Dannah Gresh points out, This book is about the spiritual battle for […]

Have you ever encountered negative comments from people about your marriage? You know, the comments that make you cringe inside as your heart begs you not to believe it!  I remember hearing quite a bit of negative comments from other wives just before I married, and sadly I still hear them to this day.  Comments suggesting that marriage is not bliss, that love does fade, and that happiness is the period of time before one is hitched to the old ball and chain. Unfortunately, these negative comments are not only shot towards wives, but moms as well.  As soon as […]

When I first started blogging I was not aware of who else was pouring their hearts over the web. I began searching for other women who had a passion to encourage others, while giving positive resources for marriage. One of the very first places I landed was Women Living Well. Every day I jumped on to read the words Courtney would post. She became a source of inspiration for me. Her zeal and love for God was evident, I liked that a lot. Over the course of about a year I connected with Courtney and we became friends. Her encouragement […]

Most of the resources and reviews I provide on Unveiled Wife are specifically promoted to help women in their role of being wives. My passion is to encourage wives to invest into their marriage through these resources because the content in them is empowering and life changing. Last year I became a mom. I realized very quickly after my son was born, that my role as a wife and as a mother both needed significant investment. These two roles work together in tandem to fulfill God’s beautiful design for my family. Neglecting one or both of these roles would dramatically […]

The first thing that captured my attention with this book was the title, Beyond Ordinary: When A Good Marriage Just Isn’t Good Enough.  It immediately resonated with me because one thing that my husband and I have prayed for since our wedding is an extraordinary marriage.  However, with all the hardships presented in marriage it can be difficult to believe in extraordinary. I was so excited to read what Justin and Trisha Davis would share about, regarding marriage being beyond ordinary. I must also point out that I love the cover of this book! It brilliantly depicts a marriage story of a […]

Have you ever come unglued? You know… that moment when life just seems to be out of control… raw emotions flood your entire being… overwhelmed, frustrated, uneasy, agitated … and you either stuff it all inside… or explode!?! In Lysa TerKeurst’s new book Unglued – Making Wise Choices In The Midst Of Raw Emotions she candidly shares stories of when she has become unglued, stories that any wife or mother can easily relate to!

This is the final chapter review for The Meaning Of Marriage – Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God by Timothy Keller.  I have really enjoyed this book and the depth that is exposed regarding marriage and singleness according to God’s Word.  I highly recommend that this book be on everyone’s bookshelf! Also, if you want to catch a glimpse of some of the chewy morsels from this book, please check out the other chapter reviews!  You can easily navigate to them via the buttons at the bottom of this page! Chapter 8 – Sex and Marriage […]

Chapter 7 – Singleness and Marriage Why does Timothy Keller address singles in a marriage book? “The answer is that single people cannot live their lives well as singles without a balanced, informed view of marriage.” (192) I agree with Keller on this. So many times people, whether single or married, have a distorted view of relationships.  I believe it is important for everyone to educate themselves on marriage, specifically God’s intentions for marriage, whether they get married or not.
