New Marriage Book for Wives

Say hello to 100 Ways to Love Your Husband by Lisa Jacobson. Call it solid equipment for our wifely toolboxes, friend.

By Lisa Jacobson

Many marriage books crowd the market, several good ones, too. But I hope folks make room for this one.

Here’s why:

  • Practical Ideas
    Lisa pulls from her decades of marriage to Matt and the practical ideas that have worked for them. Some action steps seem rather small and inconsequential, but results assure something much more impacting. (My own 25+ of wedded bliss attests to this.)

  • Easy to Read
    For the busy woman, speed and ease warm her like the bright rays of summer sunshine. With large-font action steps listed on each page, readers easily skim to find which idea sticks best…then read the small paragraph below it for further encouragement or insight.

  • Story
    Lisa includes a few stories of her own throughout this book. It creates credibility and allows readers to relate to her and her struggles as well as her successes.

    (Not to mention we women need a little conversation, right?)
  • Gratitude
    In “Way” #87, Lisa mentions showing gratitude for his gifts. Girl, I’ve hiccuped on this one in the past. She’s right. Be thankful for those gifts the hubster offers.

New Book Release for Husbands

We can’t review one book without the other. So shall we dive into the husband’s version?

736658: 100 Ways to Love Your Wife: The Simple, Powerful Path to a Loving Marriage 100 Ways to Love Your Wife: The Simple, Powerful Path to a Loving Marriage
By Matt Jacobson

Say hello to 100 Ways to Love Your Wife by Matt Jacobson–the companion to 100 Ways to Love Your Husband. Sold separately, they would make a wonderful, helpful wedding or anniversary gift when combined. Their formats mimic each other, and although the “ways” listed are similar in idea, Matt presents them from a male’s view. Several action steps remain specific to the husband’s book only.

Here’s why I love this book:

  • Faithful
    In “Way” #69 Matt mentions assuring her you’ll be faithful forever. That simple yet powerful conversation boosts a wife’s confidence sky-high. (Experience speaking here. Tony and I conversed about this when we were first married. When rocky times came, and they did, knowing we were both in it for the long haul brought solace and hope to those volatile situations.)

  • Story
    Matt offers fewer personal anecdotes than Lisa, evidencing the difference between men and women. 🙂 The two or three he includes are effective. As a woman, I would have liked to have seen more. I suspect my husband would disagree.

  • Podcast
    Look for a bonus in the back pages of each book. Lisa and Matt host a marriage podcast. I’ve just started listening to it. So far, so good. I’d recommend it. If you already listen, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

Would I recommend purchasing 100 Ways to Love Your Husband and 100 Ways to Love Your Wife? Absolutely. Keep in mind the practicalness, simplicity, effectiveness, and the overflowing ideas contained within each to help strengthen marriages–yours, mine, and even the people we pass these books along to.

  1. I rarely read marriage books. I have no idea why not, but I have followed Lisa Jacobs for years and find her to be an inspiration. Maybe her new marriage book for wives would be a good idea!

    1. How fun that you’ve followed Lisa all these years, Heather. Sounds like this one might be a good “strengthen your marriage” book for your bookbag. 😉

  2. Thanks for sharing about these new books. They look like great resources for strengthening your marriage. I love that you mentioned they include practical ideas. I’m always frustrated when resources are touted as wonderful and then you get them and they are just so impractical or completely ridiculous.

    1. Congratulations on 30 years of wedded bliss, Wendy. That’s great! I can see these marriage books helping newlyweds and long-timers like you and your husband, too. They really were goodies.

    1. These marriage books really are good ones. It’s basically a list of 100 ideas to implement in marriage. If you read and use them, I’d love to hear your feedback, Tiffany.

  3. My husband doesn’t care for reading, so Ioved the way you focused on “easy to read” as one of your points. Maybe he will like reading this one. I definitely want to check these out for strengthening our marriage. I like to see reading books like this as professional development for one of the most important decisions we’ll ever make!

  4. These both sound like great books! I’ve been married 31 years, but we’re in a new stage of “almost retired” and it changes things! I know an older couple who bicker constantly, and I do not want to turn into that. Marriage takes work to make it work the best. Thanks for sharing these 2 resources.
