Happy #BookBday to Poppy Smith on the official release “Why Can’t He Be More Like ME? (book giveaway)


“What do you and your spouse have in common?”
“We got married on the same day.”

Many women can identify with that sentiment. They want their marriages to be happy and honoring to God, but they wonder how when their mate baffles and even irritates them so. Some may even wonder if they made a terrible mistake.

Using Scripture, humor, and colorful illustrations from her own struggles, Poppy Smith offers hope in this upbeat, personal, practical, biblically grounded, and empathetic book. Why Can’t He Be More Like Me? will help women analyze areas of marital conflict by reviewing their backgrounds, parenting personalities, expectations, needs, and reactions. Each chapter provides practical tools to help women learn to accept and enjoy their mate, resulting in a strengthened relationship, better communication, and deeper understanding of each other.

With its how-to emphasis, this book is a useful resource for classes, small groups, or seminars for wives and couples.

    This is definately a book that is needed. Men and women think so differently and misunderstanding that difference can be the source of much unhappiness and conflict in marriages. Thanks for entering me!
