God gave man a helpmate for a reason – to be a help. So why do we pray for His will in every aspect of our lives, except for our marriage and our husband?

Exactly!

So, take the challenge. Use 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband as a prayer guide and devotional and learn to pray for your spouse as God intended.

Because, as Billy Graham says, you cannot pray for someone and hate them at the same time.

Hott Review:

15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband is more than just 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband. This book gives us guidelines on how to pray as God wants us to. It gives ideas on ways to remember who we pray for and why we include them. Plus, 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband reminds us of our responsibilities as wives and advice how to better be the wives God has commanded us to be.
What I liked: Broken down into 25 chapters, 15 Verses to Pray for Your Husband lovingly guides us on how to grow in our prayer life and our marriage with tips, verses, and reminders.
What I didn’t like: There were a lot of words! I thought I’d be able to read this as a devotional, but found that I needed several hours or evenings to dig in and prayerfully work through each section.

    There is a lot baggage standing at the counter of The Dough Knot.

    Between the bride that makes bridezillas look tame and the overly laid back groom who thinks it’s natural.

    The single mom baker, Charlotte Cantrell, has a trust complex. Ever since she was humiliated in her college stadium by being fingered as the other woman and left embarrassed and pregnant, Charlotte has put her daughter first and men last. Until Will Martin walked to her counter.

    Will is practically in love with Charlotte before he even asks her name. If only he could get over his guilt of his sisters accident and live a life of his own.

    Hott Review:

    What an adorable romance! I really enjoyed both Charlotte and Will in Love Takes the Cake. Their personalities are fun and upbeat, even in the midst of turmoil.
    The only thing I’ll note is that this is more of a clean romance than a Christian Romance.
