When a Woman Inspires Her Husband

by Cindi McMenamin

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Award-winning author Cindi McMenamin’s When a Woman Inspires Her Husband is a series of individual recommendations, or lessons, on ways every woman can build up her husband and thereby encourage him to be the husband God wants him to be. The book is based on the premise that, according to Genesis 2:18, women are to be a helpmate to their husbands. It begins by explaining something of the male ego and examines ways women can be that helpmate.

McMenamin is well qualified to write a book on this subject matter—she is a pastor’s wife who has counseled women for more than 20 years. She has written numerous books, including When Women Walk Alone and When Couples Walk Together.

McMenamin asked her husband, “How can I be a woman who inspires you, who draws you closer, who makes you all you can be?” The list her husband wrote out in response became the Table of Contents for this book. Each chapter includes a section titled “From His Perspective,” where her husband and other men respond to the chapter topic in their own words. This truly brings credibility to her work, as no one knows what men want more clearly than men!

Each chapter of this book also contains a section intended to take readers deeper into the lesson with questions for reflection, or practical tips on how to apply the concepts to their own lives. This book would be a great resource for a women’s study group, couple’s retreat breakout group, or personal study for women who want to build their relationships with their husbands. Recommended for married women or women contemplating marriage. – Dr. Jan Wallace Reber,
