The Wholehearted Wife: 10 Keys to a More Loving Relationship
by Erin and Greg Smalley, Gary Smalley

Although it takes two to have a great marriage, an important truth for any marriage partner to realize is that he or she can really change no one other than him or herself. Nevertheless, changes in just one person can have an amazing impact on a marriage relationship!

Instead of focusing on “How do I have a better marriage?” this book embraces that truth, and helps women ponder the question, “How can I be the best wife I can be?” It provides every woman with skills, information, and encouragement to make a positive difference to this and future generations, by wholeheartedly investing in her marriage and her relationship with her husband today.

The Wholehearted Wife is written by Erin and Greg Smalley, along with Gary Smalley, the creator and presenter of Keys to a Loving Relationship, one of the best-selling video series of all time. Recognizing that most if not all married women have either experienced a time when her marriage felt lifeless?or sat with another female friend or family member who was experiencing that situation?this book is also a wonderful resource for those times.


“The Smalleys bring both professional expertise and personal experience to the important conversation of what it takes to nurture a loving marriage. A great resource for any married couple.” (Dr. Tony Evans, Pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas, TX; author of Kingdom Woman)

“What’s better than a book with the name “Smalley” on the cover? How about a book with three Smalleys! Erin and Greg, along with Greg’s dad, Gary, offer women a powerful message that will help strengthen and reinvigorate their relationships with their husbands. This is a great book for Christian women.” (Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family)

“What a fantastic book! Every wife?regardless of age or stage in her marriage?will benefit from this inspiring, humorous, and practical message.” (Dr. Leslie Parrott, Marriage and family therapist, #1 NYT best-selling author of The Good Fight)

“This book is full of practical advice for women. Let’s face it . . . being a wife is far more complicated than most of us realized when we said, “I do.” Greg and Erin do an excellent job of equipping you to honor God and your husband, regardless of the current state of your marriage.” (Dr. Juli Slattery, Author; clinical psychologist; co-founder of Authentic Intimacy)
