I think one of the biggest mistakes a woman makes is to expect a man not to be and act like a man. God has made men the way they are so he can reach beyond himself to lay himself down for ideals that are bigger than he is. Denied permission to be a man, a man will die inwardly and give in to the temptations to be something other than what he is.


Wow. I have never read or heard anything that views men's visual nature as anything but a negative to be overcome.

"Because you're mine, I walk the line." Johnny Cash. I love when hubby sings that to me. It is a line. A plumbline. I respect his dedication to it.
After 28 years and six kids, through the good and bad, by the grace of God, things keep getting better and better. ::wed

I am reading this now. I know it is meant for women but my wife won't read it and I was very curious to read a woman's perspective on this. To say the least it is right on the money for my own experience.

av8r75, there have been books I've read that were "for men" about women, but it helped me understand myself. The better we can understand ourselves, and when we can have words put with our feelings, then we can become better communicators in that area. Even though your wife won't read this book, you are now better equipped to communicate the way you/men are, to her. This is a good thing, even if you don't feel it's the "best" thing. :D
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.
