Wife After God book review

So for the 24 days, I have been reading a devotional titled Wife After God: Drawing Closer to God & Your Husband by Jennifer Smith. It is a 30 day devotional that encourages women to pray for themselves, their husbands, and their marriages. By praying and becoming closer to God, you can potentially strengthen your marriage. Each day starts off with bible passages to focus on. Then Jennifer shares the message for the day. She offers a prayer, then issues a challenge for the day, as well as give a few questions for you to answer. She also has a Facebook page where she encourages daily participation with more questions.

I have prayed for my husband since we were married 3.5 years ago. I would simply thank God for my husband and ask Him to watch over my husband. But since starting this devotional, I have really been praying for him more passionately. I thank Him for the special gifts my husband and I each offer to our marriage and ask Him to continue to allow us to have our hearts open to each other, for example. I feel there has been a result with my deeper prayers. I am starting to see my husband respond more to me. Maybe his heart is opening to God and to me as I have prayed. And it could be because of my prayer, my heart has been opened more also, and by learning to be a better wife, I am learning to take the time to see his responses. Either way, I'm glad I found this book!

If you have been looking for a way to get closer to God and you husband, I encourage you to pick up this book. Her website is You can purchase the book from her site through Amazon or for your kindle. I don't think you will be disappointed in this decision!

  1. Glory to God! How awesome about your more passionate praying!!! Weren't the prayers that Jen wrote BEAUTIFUL!? Yet so relational?! What an encouragement this book was/is/will be!!! xx

  2. I am thinking about reading this, but I was unsure if I should or look for something more catholic specific. I might just have to give it a go!

    1. Savana I understand where you are coming from. This devotional does have bible reading. When it comes to getting close to God and our husbands, it doesn't matter which Christian spectrum you come from, as long as you are open and willing to learn more about yourself. I highly recommend it, and I am Catholic.
      In the end, it is only 30 days, and if you still want something more in depth to our faith, you can look then.
