Becoming the Woman of His Dreams
Ok, so I’ll be honest, I’m not usually one to do a book review… to me that is to much like those days when we had to do book reports back in junior high and that just brings back bad memories. Especially because in Junior high I didn’t read enough books for the quarter and got a referral which meant I had an 8th hour (detention) and had to go sit in the teacher’s room and read for an hour. Well long story short, my dad didn’t agree with that so the teacher and my dad worked out an agreement that I had to read all my books for the current quarter AND all the books for the previous quarter and the referral was removed, otherwise it still stood and I had to serve the detention. I got my crap together, read a lot of books and the referral was removed. And at the time, I HATED books and I HATED reading. Hate is such a strong word and usually lasts forever, well I’ll have to admit, my HATE for books has changed and oddly enough I don’t mind reading them now.
Anyway sorry for the trip down memory lane… but I thought out of all my babbling that I would share a book with you.
As you can see, it’s called, “Becoming the Woman of His Dreams,” by Sharon Jaynes. A co-worker gave it to me to read since I have my up-coming wedding. She told me that marriage is great. It isn’t always easy but it’s the best thing in the world and gave me this book to help start our marriage out right. Now it is based off Christian beliefs and the bible, there is scripture all through it, so I guess if you don’t believe in the Holy Bible or God (I’m not here to push my beliefs off on you), then I’m going to tell you right now, this probably isn’t the book for you. But my opinion, It’s an excellent book.
A while back I had PC answer the 6 questions that Sharon had on her survey that she sent to gobs (yeah I can’t remember how many she actually interviewed but it was a lot :)) of men. I wanted him to answer the questions but had him change wife to fiance, since well, we aren’t married yet. Makes sense huh :). Anyway I asked him to answer the 6 questions and oddly enough he posted them on here. I didn’t even ask him to, I just wanted his answers before we were married. Then I told him that on or around our one year anniversary I wanted him to answer them again. I wanted to see if I was still “The Woman of his Dreams.” I can’t wait to see his answers come 1 year and 69 days from now (434 days and no I won’t keep a count down for that… just yet anyway). Yup, we broke the 70 day barrier.
So here are the questions, they are found on page 9 of her book:
~How would you describe the woman of your dreams?
~What do you wish your wife understood about you and your longings?
~What does your wife do well that other women could learn from?
~What has been the greatest struggle in your marriage?
~How could your wife help alleviate that problem?
~What is one thing you wish women understood about what a man wants in the woman of his dreams?
Ok so it’s a great book and I don’t think you’ll be unhappy if you read it. Oddly enough, it makes you think, or it did me anyway. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I worked on our house all weekend. We are having a 4th of July party next weekend and I wanted our house to look awesome for the technical First showing to friends and family (other than parents). I’m now exhausted and ready for bed and it’s 8:48pm. How sad am I?
Good night all!
Peace, Love & Excellent Books!

I felt the same way when I did my book review last week, lol! Thanks for reviewing this one, I'm going to add it to my reading list. 🙂
I wonder if there's a similar book on “becoming a man of her dreams” lol seriously, that'll complete everything 🙂
Sounds like a good book! I hear you on the disliking books when you HAVE to read them…I'd much rather read something on my own choice, right??
And I'd hate to ask my hubby some of those questions. HAHAH! 🙂
Sounds pretty good, I should give it a look
Back when I was your age I had problems being married. I went to a bookstore looking for some inspiration with a little prayer in my heart, “Please help me find something that will save my marriage.” and I did, It was a book called Facinating Womanhood. Same thing as yours, with a little scripture thrown it. That was over 30 years ago. It's helped so far. It takes a lot of work to stay married these days. The bad days are bad but the good days are soooooooooo good 🙂
One of the best things you can do for your marriage is to never quit learning about each other, continually look for successful mentoring from other couples who have great marriages, and be willing to continue educating yourself on what it means to be a good wife/husband.
Another book I would highly recommend is “For Her Eyes Only” and “For His Eyes Only” GREAT reads and insight on the opposite sex!
Sounds like a good book. I'll have to take a look for an audiobook (I do better with audiobooks). Thanks for the referral.
