I know I’ve talked about this book before but I wanted to do an actual review here on my blog for you.  If you’ve been following my “All About Men” series you will have seen the two posts I had from Sheri Rose Shepherd.  Those articles were actually excerpts from her book: “Your Heart’s Desire: 14 Truths That Will Forever Change the Way You Love and Are Loved”

Your Heart's Desire: 14 Truths That Will Forever Change the Way You Love and Are Loved

I received this book as a free review copy from Tyndale publishers and as an added bonus was given the option of having her guest post on my blog.  Let me just just say that the excerpts do not do the book justice.  I was blown away by many of the ideas she presented in her book about helping your man become the leader he should be, respecting him the way God intended for us to respect our husbands, and even one chapter on training our sons to be godly leaders.  There was so much good material!  I have already seen how many of her ideas have changed my own marriage and I know, if you are struggling with questions in your marriage you would enjoy it as well.

I did have a few concerns in one chapter (not to be gushing entirely) when she brought up a group of people as good role models who I wouldn’t necessarily recommend to anyone.  The Bible talks about us being wise as serpents when it comes to certain matters, and while I understood the analogy she was using them for, I probably would have tried to find a different one to use.

Overall, the book was great and has been a help to me and I’m thankful I enjoyed it so much (I don’t usually read non-fiction, lol).
