Review of the devotional journal How Do I Love Thee? by Jennifer Flanders

How Do I Love Thee?: A Devotional Journal for Wives

How Do I Love Thee?: A Devotional Journal for Wives

  I always enjoy reading and reviewing Jennifer Flander's books. I am delighted by her newest line of devotional journals which are always beautiful and geared towards a specific audience. This one is for wives and I can promise you that all wives who are interested in devotions and/or journals will love it. Each page features a lovely illustration- highlighting especially the Victorian era and the 1940's/1950's. I loved looking through the pages of this journal and enjoying every vignette and every saying. There are many quotes, sayings as well as well-chosen Bible verses. There are a variety of topics to fill in, making this book a wonderful keepsake for couples to read years later. 
This journal is paperback with a matte finish binding and has 218 pages. 
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. 
Happiness in marriage is not so much a matter of chance as it is a matter of choice. Choosing to be happy means choosing to think on things that are good and noble and right and lovely and pure-including your spouse's most positive, admirable, and endearing qualities. Our marriages can't help but benefit when we discipline ourselves to do this. That's the purpose of this journal in a nutshell. Whether you're writing, drawing, pasting, or coloring in it, each page, prompt, and verse is designed to help you recall and record the things you love most about your husband, to reflect on your most cherished memories, and to recognize God's hand at work in your relationship. I pray you will be richly blessed as you meditate on God's Word and allow it to shape your life and marriage.
