In our post-modern world, women may assume many roles in their life: leader, employer, Christian, mother, volunteer, politician, and so on. One of those roles that many women choose to embrace is wife. But becoming a wife is more than getting married. God says that to take on the role of wife is to be in a position of immense power (1 Peter 3:1-6). It is the power to change people in positive directions, starting with a husband and radiating out through children and into the community. We realize that the role of wife has been diminished in the past because of the suggestion that wife and mother are the only two roles women can play.
Our hope is that the true power of the wife role will re-emerge as the force God intended. We want to show you how to use the power of this role for God’s glory, for the success of your husband, for the development of your marriage and for meeting your deepest relational needs. God does have a RADICAL plan for wives.
In God’s Radical Plan for Wives, Gil and Dana Stieglitz explain the seven greatest needs of men by applying biblical principles and real-life stories. This book will challenge, convict, and inspire—it’s perfect for individual or group study, especially when paired with God’s Radical Plan for Wives Companion Bible Study. The lessons and exercises in the book will teach you to motivate him to be the best man, husband, and father possible, setting the stage to gently guide and instruct him toward meeting your needs.
“God’s Radical Plan for Wives is so transformative we would not have believed it if we hadn’t seen it in the pages of Scripture and watched it work in real life.”

I’m Jennifer. I wonder if you’re a little bit like me? I work hard. I juggle a lot of balls. I have goals and dreams, a hope of better things to come. I love my family, my dog, my friends, and the people that God has placed in my life. We all struggle; it’s part of this life! I know I certainly do. With my thoughts, intentions, beliefs, attitude, direction, my worth, my weight, and my limitations. Relationships are hard, and as women, we have many roles and hats to wear. There never seems to be enough time to do everything on our “to do” list, let alone the things we truly enjoy, right? This world is a crazy, mixed-up place, where people are confused about what to believe anymore. It seems like what’s right is wrong and what’s wrong is right…Is there still truth today? While it can be beneficial, media and technology invade our senses, shape our thoughts, and shift our beliefs. Half of the time, we are told that what we once believed to be true is now false. Change is subtle. But I hold out for the greater truth. The truth found in the pages of God’s Word. Many are challenged by this notion. But not me. I believe wholeheartedly that God’s Word is alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword (which is pretty darn sharp, by-the-way!). Do you struggle to live out what the Bible says? Is it understandable and still relevant to today’s issues and complexities? Can it help you with being the best woman, mother, wife, daughter, friend, neighbor, or co-worker you can be? The answer is a definitive…yes. God’s Word still beckons us to learn its principles and precepts. If you take the time to read and apply what you learn to your life, it will change you—for the better. I’m a woman just like you. I may be at a different age or stage of life than you, but we hold a common bond—we struggle to do the best we can with what we’ve got. And that's okay! Join me as we work out God’s truths in our lives together. It won’t always be pretty, and sometimes it might hurt a little, but it will always be for our good. I would love to have you subscribe to my blog, Truth Bites, where I share a little insight, a new perspective, and some clarity on many issues women face today. Join me at www.jenniferedwards.net!
