Becoming a Godly Wife

Have you ever realized that what you put into your mind is what will come out? What you watch, and what you read will come out in your actions. So if your desire is to start becoming a Godly wife, then don’t you think it’s time to put those “dime novels” away and start filling your mind with Godly advice?


A reading list for becoming a Godly wife.  #booklist #christianwoman #readinglist

In your journey to becoming a Godly wife, finding the right food for your mind is of great importance. For light reading, Christian novels are fine. But one needs to make sure they are also feeding their brain the word of God and books that are written with the intend to help you as a wife.

The bible of course is the best book to read for this purpose, but I wanted to put together another list, both for myself and for you guys. :)

I have several books that I have read and personally recommend. I also put out a call on Facebook and the wonderful members of our Facebook community chimed in with their faves.

  1. Your blog is always so refreshing, Kendra. The books that you shared are excellent reading for marriage. I have read a bunch of them, not all, but they really are an encouragement. Thanks for hosting too!!

  2. Thanks for hosting, Kendra! :) I’ve read a number of those books…The Excellent Wife has been, besides the Word, the book I go back to every year and reread regarding my role as a godly wife. It is such a blessing!

    I hope you have a lovely week!

    • Now I really need to get mine off of the shelf again! I read half way through it (I think) when I first got it, and then life really got in the way, and it got lost for awhile… and long story short, 5 years later, I still haven’t read through it all :/ oops!

  3. I have read a couple of these and some I’ve never heard of. I do love Elizabeth George and have some of her books! However, I have read some very bad reviews about the Debbie Pearl book, although I haven’t read it myself so I have no opinion. What was YOUR take on it? Anyway, thanks for hosting!

    • My take on it? The Pearls are radical Christians, not a bad thing. But anytime a person takes a strong, radical stand, especially on the Bible, there will be haters.

      Like any other book, read with discernment. If you feel something may not be right, study it out with the Bible. I love the Pearls writings and do support them, but there are 1 or 2 areas that even I disagree with.

      This book is written with a rather anti-feminist view and that’s where many woman hate the book. I would encourage you to read it, if for no other reason than to possibly understand why many of the reviews are so bad, and why today’s woman becomes so angry when presented with those principles.

  4. Wonderful list!!! Pinning this for sure. Thanks so much for taking the time to put them all in one place.

  5. Maybe something, if you haavent already posted such, for daughters? …Being that I’m sure that I’m not the only “kid” subscribed.

  6. I am particularly fond of The Power of a Praying Wife:) Thank you for your list!

  7. I have read A Woman After God’s Own Heart and The Power Of A praying Wife. They are all great blessings! I need to check some of the others on your list… Thanks for sharing and hosting too. Have a super blessed day!
