    How to Get Your Husband to Talk to You
    Speaketh the Language of Him A man comes home and says to his wife, “I had a horrible day at work today.” She says, “Tell me about it.” “I just did,” he replies. Men and women communicate differently—and, all too often, not at all! This book is a sort of “linguistics” school that will teach you to speak your husband’s language: male . You’ll discover simple ways to cultivate a sense of humor about your male and female differences, open conversations with him—and keep them going, frame what you’re saying with masculine interest areas, respond proactively to what your husband shares, and develop thicker skin (this alone is worth the price of the book). Change up your language, spice up your marriage! It’ll be your husband’s favorite thing you’ve ever done…well, almost!

Discover simple ways to: Cultivate a sense of humor about your male and female differences. Open conversations with your mate, and keep them going. Frame what you are saying within masculine interest areas. Respond proactively to what your husband shares—promoting more sharing! Develop thicker skin. (This alone is worth the price of the book. It will be your husband’s favorite thing you’ve ever done…well, almost!) “Don’t miss this book! It’s fun, realistic, smart, helpful—on every page. Think of it as your husband is a TV, and you—for once—have the remote.” David Kopp, coauthor, with Heather Harpham-Kopp, Praying the Bible for Your Marriage Story Behind the Book “The concept for this book was born at five o’clock in the morning as I was working out,” says Connie. “To keep myself awake, I thought about what Nancy and I should write to follow The Politically Incorrect Wife . ‘What’s a topic that almost every married woman in America is interested in?’ I asked myself. Almost instantly, the answer came: How to get your husband to talk to you. Thus began a lot of reading, researching, surveying, and practicing. We were surprised time and again at what worked, and what didn’t! We think you will be as well.”

    The Politically Incorrect Wife

    The Politically Incorrect Wife
    God's Plan for Marriage Still Works Today
    Just what is a politically incorrect wife? She is a woman who is married to her husband and not to popular American culture. The politically incorrect wife does not buy into the stifling modern-day thinking that says, "Look out for number one. Treat your husband no better than he treats you." Instead, she cultivates a joyful marriage using transformational spiritual principles. As formerly politically correct wives with miserable marriages, popular speakers and authors Nancy Cobb and Connie Grigsby lead readers confidently beyond the picket lines of the politically correct -- into a warm, rewarding marriage.

    How to Get Your Husband to Listen to You
    Understanding How Men Communicate
    You talk for thirty minutes, telling him every detail of your day. He has three great ideas for how to fix your problems. “Why can’t you just listen to me?” you ask. You pull back, he gives up, and your marriage suffers. The problem? He’s a man. And you expect a girlfriend. You could play the blame game. Or dish out the cold treatment. Or find a better way.… Many women feel their husbands don’t listen the way they “should.” How to Get Your Husband to Listen to You is not about how to change a man’s God-given way of thinking but about how to initiate healthy communication and enjoy the blessing of a husband who wants to listen. Discover specific ways to: • Help your husband value what you say and how you say it • Understand what your husband really wants (and it might not be what you think!) • Rebuild love and respect in your marriage • Become a wife whose husband wants her insights • Strengthen communication in marriage through your communication with God • Give your husband the desire to listen to your needs, your words, and your heart From the Trade Paperback edition.
