The Fruitful Wife What NOT To Do in MarriageI really liked the idea of this book and felt that the topic had a lot of potential The cute cover and turuoise text also helped to draw me in I was excited to read this book Unfortunately I felt that it did not live up to its potential and that it falls short of being a truly inspiring book to help improve marriagesFirst I must note that there was a lot in the book that I did not uite agree with doctrinally and a few interpretations of scripture that did not sit well with me However I want to make it clear that my low rating on this book is due almost entirely to other reasons which I will go into in a moment and not because the author s faith and interpretation of doctrine differs from mine I don t feel that it would be fair to give the book such a low rating purely because the author s religious views differ from my ownFirst the positivesI actually loved and appreciated the chapter on Joy Her thoughts and discussion on the virtue of joy were very uplifting and inspiring I loved the part about how a joyful wife can be a blessing to her husband and familyI also LOVED the conclusion chapter in which DiMarco discusses the vine and the branches which bring forth fruit and how ours is an active role in developing the fruit in our livesOnto the things I did not like about this bookI felt that the overall tone of this book was actually very negative Yes there were many Biblical references and much discussion about the nine virtues A lot of this was very informative and inspirational But whenever the author used personal examples and stories from her life it was all very negative I think what she was going for was to show how developing these fruits of the Spirit in her life allowed her to change from the way she was to become a good wife and strengthen her marriage but she hardly made ANY mention of HOW she did change or the specific POSITIVE things she did to help her marriage There are plenty of stories about ways to be a bad wife being impatient having meltdowns on her honeymoon screaming breaking plates not saying please or thank you to her husband being moody not smiling and exhibiting joy and on and on and on What I would have loved to read are the specific ways she learned to become a good wife once she learned to abide in the Spirit and develop those fruits of the Spirit I would have loved her to balance out the general discussion of those virtues with actual practical tips to apply to your marriage and positive ones For me this book was a what not to do guide to marriage I don t feel particularly inspired to be a better wife except that I don t want to be like the wife she portrayed through her negative examplesI also got the overall feeling of this book being very condescending towards husbands There were SO many examples of what to do when your husband is sinful lazy overly sensitive being a baby a failure even your enemy page 113 She talked about how God s grace can help us keep from rolling our eyes when he s wrong making fun of him complaining about him or reminding him of his failures page 116 Maybe the author didn t do this on purpose but much of the tone of this book is similar in the way that husbands are mentioned Look a lot of husbands are wonderful Mine isn t perfect but I never feel like he s being a baby or think you re such a failure and I sure don t make fun of him These things don t even cross my mind Maybe I just don t relate to the author very wellI had a problem with a major point the author seems to make throughout the book that I think is worth mentioning She talks about how many nonbelievers exhibit some or all of these virtues in their lives and they bless their families and do good sometimes better than believers but only because it feels good Their fruit grows because of the payoff they receive page 15 The author states that because they are nonbelievers they must be doing this for selfish reasons Look we all have different beliefs Although I am a Christian I don t belong to the same church as the author does that make me a nonbeliever There are many wonderful good people who don t go to church at all does this make them purely selfish when they show love or gentleness or goodness in their homes and in their communities I don t think it is the author s place or mine or anyone else s except God s to judge the motives and intents of people who do goodI realize that this is a book about being a good wife However marriage is a partnership I felt like a lot of these practical tips would have been effective and helpful when seen through the lens of a partnership For example the author talks about praying for your husband when you don t like what he s doing or when he sins or makes mistakes Praying for your husband is great and important A good wife does that But I also think it s also paramount in a marriage to pray together It was just all a little too one sided for me making husbands seem inferior in some wayA couple of alarming things the author saidOn page 55 the author talks about the joylessness of a life out of control and mentions conditions such as anorexia and bulimia she then suggests that to let go of this need for control that is inherent in these disorders one must see the fingerprints of God in their life and trust in Him While this is true to some extent I think that these disorders are much than a lack of trust in GodOther reviewers have mentioned the alarming paragraph on page 90 that basically says that certain neuroses and disorders wouldn t be present if we would merely align our lives with God I think the author needs to be careful about such claims when dealing with medical issuesWhile I loved the conclusion chapter I found it strange that it actually made NO mention at all about marriage I don t think I even read the word wife in that chapter at all Isn t that a little inconsistent with the whole premise of the bookThis book was just a little too negative for me and seemed like a What Not To Do marriage book I did enjoy reading it critically and it has prompted many good discussions with my husband about marriage and doctrine as well as encouraged me to look many things up in my scriptures to ponder on my own

characters Ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Hayley DiMarco The Fruitful Wife review ↠ 108 Ts your day to day life and marriageShe writes like a close friend openly sharing stories of her own failures to be spiritually fruitful as well as her relational struggles for control authority and respect Ultimately Hayley teaches us how even the rockiest of marriages can blossom and generate the fruit God intends to produc. uite honestly there were many times while reading The Fruitful Wife that I thought the book should have been written for a wider audience of all women because so much of the fruit of the Spirit applies to all of us Yet I needed to read it in reference to my marriage Hayley DiMarco wrote about the fruit of the Spirit in general terms but gave much application for relationships and especially the husband and wife relationship Though written for wives I do not think you need to be married to gain perspective and wisdom from The Fruitful Wife If you are a married woman wanting to honor your husband and God I definitely recommend you read The Fruitful Wife Add it to your wishlist right now And then leave a comment to enter the giveaway The Fruitful Wife dedicates a chapter to each parts of the fruit of the Spirit named in Galations 522 23 along with an introduction and conclusion But the fruit of the Spirit is love joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness self control against such things there is no lawEach of the chapters has information than I expected about each topic and it s relevant too As I have been recommending this book to others since I began reading it I offer to lend my copy when done telling my friends that my book is heavily highlighted The Fruitful Wife emphasizes that the fruit of the Spirit is not natural to people In fact the fruit of the Spirit is only possible through the enabling of the Holy Spirit when we deny ourselves and giving glory to God That takes love and self control Sounds tough huh Hayley DiMarco writes in the introduction something I could have writtenI naturally resort to self when tested it s my habit my nature my flesh When I m misunderstood I get defensive When I m uncomfortable I complain When I m tired I m cranky When I m at the end of my rope I lack all self control So the descriptive Fruitful Wife does not come naturally to me p 11I am sharing just a few uotes that I really appreciatedThe Fruitful Wife on joyThe joyful wife is a blessing to her husband and family She blesses him with a home that is a pleasure to come to not because of its cleanliness but because in it there is cheerfulness optimism playfulness and delight p 56The Fruitful Wife on patience Complaint most often expresses the inability to endure suffering 2 Tim 45 even of the most inconseuential kind And when complaint seems most warranted as in the case of unfair imprisonment or torture patience bears with mankind as it sees not chaos and loss but order and hope p 88 andBut the fruit is really just the outpouring of another work the work of clinging to God That is the primary work for fruit to be produced As we cling to him as we worship him pray to him study his Word and spend time in his presence his Spirit animates our lives p99The Fruitful Wife on self controlSelf control is necessary in the life of faith If we can t control ourselves in other words subdue our flesh then we are no longer controlled by our love for God p 193And a few thoughts from the book Peace with God comes from our acceptance of our suffering not the exemption of suffering and pain Joy is not denying suffering but seeing God s providence through it When Big Sister was just two weeks old and we weren t sure if her heart rate would ever get under control or if she would go into cardiac arrest again During those long days at the hospital I remember repeatedly sharing two things with others 1 Parenting is not for wimps and 2 Throughout all of the uestions and uncertainties God would bring us through it We said the same things all over again when Brother had a three hour seizure You can read about the SVT epilepsy and even apraxia if you like I suppose another hardship we dealt with as parents was the screaming for months of our youngestand it was not just colic It was pain but not in the form of colicI did appreciate all of the Bible references in this book and the honest writing I definitely recommend this book Improvements though Sure I would have liked an in depth topical index Twenty three notesresources are included but a reader benefits from an index in a book like this Another note for readers is that the book has blue text I suspect some would like this while others may find it difficult to read The ARC had standard black textPersonally I have recently been challenged by the non fiction women s books I have been reading Though they are not easy to read at times and even harder to change my ways I appreciate when I read a book that challenges my thoughts and ways especially when it leads me away from sinful habits and toward glorifying God Below is a list of books that may interest you that I recommend Only the first title is specifically for wives the others are for women in general From the prompting of the books I have been reading I created a Daily Gifts gratitude journal free printable Please let me know if you are recording your blessings tooThank you Crossway for sending me an ARC Please go to for complete review and giveaway through 61413
