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?
- Does it teach sound Biblical Marriage Principles?
- Is it mostly common language and easy to understand?
- Are there practical tips that you can actually apply today?
And because we are not all big on reading I have compiled a variety of marriage resources:
- Books on Marriage Topics of all sorts
- Marriage workbooks for couples
- Devotionals for wives
- Devotionals for couples
- Online courses for marriage / Marriage Conferences
- Printables to help you be intentional with marriage
- Marriage small group studies DVDs
- Marriage enrichment topics
- Helpful marriage articles
- Ideas on how to have more fun with your husband
- Movies to inspire a healthy marriage
- Resources for Christian Women to grow in faith

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?
