40 Real Marriage Resources Christian Wives Approve and Use

There is no end to the marriage resources available today. The problem is finding the ones that work, that have real solid Biblical marriage principles laid out in a way that is easy to understand and apply to your specific marriage. I get it! As a real Christian wife who has been through several hard seasons, I can relate to the frustration. So today I want to share the best Christian Marriage Resources that real Christian wives approve and use – I use them or know and trust the authors. 

Marriage Resources That Real Christian Wives Approve and Use

What is more helpful? A thick theology book spouting theoretical ideology or a smaller ebook written from the heart of a godly wife who has walked through the trenches of a difficult marriage?

I’d take the e-Book any day, though I’ve read many of the thick ones over the years with little results.

One of the reasons I write on the topic “Marriage advice for wife” is that it takes a wife to speak to the heart of a hurting wife.

Many books promise to fix your marriage in 30-days, increase intimacy in 30-days and so much more but fall short of the promise. So I’ve gathered amazing marriage resources in this list that REALLY work to help in specific areas of marriage.

What criteria did I use to compile the list?

  1. Does it teach sound Biblical Marriage Principles?
  2. Is it mostly a common language and easy to understand?
  3. Are there practical tips that you can actually apply today?

Amazing Books on Marriage Topics 

Most of the time I hesitate to talk to people about the real problems in my marriage.  I will, however, google the problem, find a book about it, and try to fix things that way.  Can you relate?  The problem is that there are just soooo many books on marriage and it’s hard to decide if they are biblically accurate. 

If you learn through reading, these are amazing books on Marriage topics of all sorts to help you grow.  I’ve read them or been recommended them.  Each is written by real Christian wives who I trust to know what is Biblical and what is fluff or cultural garbage.  Enjoy 😉 !
