Finding the Hero in Your Husband, Revisited

Embracing Your Power in Marriage

In an update of the groundbreaking original title, Dr. Juli Slattery illuminates the power of women in marriage, with an emphasis on the uniqueness of a woman’s capacity to build intimacy.

Finding the Hero in Your Husband, Revisited, is an invaluable resource for Christian wives in any season of marriage. From the newlywed navigating the fading honeymoon period, to the wife decades in who isn’t sure how things got so predictable, to the empty nester who finds herself wondering how to communicate with her husband again. In an update of her bestselling original book, acclaimed clinical psychologist and speaker Dr. Juli Slattery gently guides readers through topics that are inherently woven into every imperfect marriage. She uses sound theology to challenge and correct misconceptions and outright misinformation taught by the larger culture as well as the church. This book is both an educational resource as well as a practical “how-to” guide for navigating simple everyday challenges as well as deeper difficulties.

Solidly grounded in biblical truth, the book covers topics such as work, home life, conflict, and intimacy. It offers understandable explanations of God’s design, healthy expectations that reframe experiences, and relatable applications that women of faith can practice to influence their marriage and deepen their relationship with God. Ultimately, Finding the Hero in Your Husband, Revisited, will help a wife more clearly see and encourage the hero within her husband by examining her own heart.
