Announcing The iAMHUSBAND Book Store

I recently spent time setting up a store through with many different marriage books I've personally read and have enjoyed. (Most of them I've read myself, but a few have been recommended by close friends.) You can access it anytime through the links in the sidebar.

I've mentioned before how important reading is in marriage. Reading with your wife is a very powerful way to grow in your relationship. Books on being a better husband, being better parents, being better lovers, etc., are all great ways to make your marriage grow. My wife and I recently bought the book Sheet Musicby Dr. Kevin Leman (a book on "uncovering the secrets of sexual intimacy") and have been reading it together. After only the first two chapters we've had some positive discussions about our sex life that we otherwise would not have had. I cannot recommend reading enough with your wife.

And if you're still not sure about a Christmas present, let me recommend buying a relationship book that the two of you will read through together. A gift like this shows your wife that you want to continue to grow in your relationship together. It also is something that will force you to spend some quality time together (like a chapter a night before bed, for example). And to make sure there's not any misunderstanding, tell her in her card (or write in the book cover) that you love her very much, and that you want to learn how to love her more. Tell her you appreciate your marriage, and you want to continue to grow as a couple together. All that to say, if you're relationship is on the rocks right now, be careful in how you present this book to her. (Presentation is like 99% of communication.)

So be sure to check out the new book store. Just so you know, there is a section with books just for the husbands, a section for the wives, and a section with books for the two of you to read together.

Hope you enjoy!

  1. I like Dr. Kevin Leman too. I met him when helping him produce his video series "Value Packed Parenting."

    Since then, I've supported his efforts to make parenting easier by devoting a blog to his video series.

    I think his latest book release "How to Have a New Kid by Friday" is good too.
