Synopsis

Being a good help meet starts long before marriage. It is a mindset, a learned habit, a way of life established as a young unmarried girl or at least that s the way it should be. Nearly every wife will confess that the first year or two of married life was... how shall I say ... a frustrating learning experience. Most girls spend plenty of time planning for their wedding, but make no preparation for the weeks and years to follow. Many wives are provoked to bitterness during the first year and never get over it. All this could so easily be avoided with simple instruction. It was with good reason God said let the aged women teach the younger. Trial and error is not the best teacher when it comes to marriage. It is much less painful to learn beforehand what God has to say about your role as a help meet to that special man God will bring into your life. It is the older women who have experienced the joys of a good marriage whom God has appointed to pass along his instructions. That is what has been done in this new book Preparing to Be a Help Meet. Preparing to Be a Help Meet contains six sweet love stories written by wives sharing their experiences about how God taught them to be the help meets they are today. Three of the stories are from wives that have been married over 40 years. Three stories are by new brides who, before marriage, were trained to be the help meet God intended. All the love stories are beautiful, and will show you how wonderful it is to walk together in God s light. In addition to the six personal testimonies, this book is full of short stories from a wide range of cultural backgrounds. The book consists of funny tales, ideas of how to gain a good man s attention, and even a tragic testimony. All teach important lessons! You will meet Grabbers and Hidden Flowers , and discover how to avoid being either. The chapter on Antsy Babes will remind you why patience is so important. You will be warned as you read stories of how texting, e-mailing and other forms of cyberspace have destroyed many budding relationships and even marriages.
