'Why can't he remember our anniversary, when he can recite every Super Bowl winner since 1967?'
'He just doesn't understand that after working all day and caring for the kids, I'm just too tired to have sex.'
'Trying to get him to tell me how he feels is like pulling teeth!'
As a psychologist, Dr. Juli Slattery knows firsthand that many women share the same frustrations about their husbands, whether they're newly wedded or celebrating a silver anniversary. As a Christian wife and mother, she, too, struggled with similar issues until she discovered the one simple truth about these seemingly insensitive and apathetic men: Each one of them is a hero.
While some may seem more like 'zeros' than heroes, Dr. Slattery shows how every wife can find her hero, whether he's just beginning to fade from view or has disappeared altogether. As she explains, God has given women tremendous power in their relationships. Unfortunately, most women unwittingly either ignore their power or abuse it. This indispensable guide shows women how to use their strength in ways that encourage their husbands' potential instead of dominating and destroying it.
While other advice books work well on paper but not in practice, Dr. Slattery helps women approach everyday situations from paying the bills and raising children to getting him to keep the toilet seat down and the intimacy level up.
Dr. Slattery explores the maligned and misunderstood 's' word: submission. She explains what it is, what it isn't, how women can support their husbands while being true to their dreams, and practical steps women can take if they are living in a dictatorship. Probing questions and practical study guide exercises make it ideal for individual use or group study
