About The Author:

Jess MacCallum is the executive VP, part owner, and COO of a commercial printing company in Columbia, South Carolina. He pursued his Wonder Woman, Anne, for nine years until she finally caved in and married him. Jess is a cartoonist and is regularly featured in The Wittenburg Door. Jess and Anne have a really cool son and two beautiful daughters.

My Review:

This was an awesome book! I believe it is the first time I have ever seen a book address Proverbs 31 FOR husbands and in my opinion, this was long overdue! MacCallum uses humor and scripture to present to husbands how to love their wives the way the Lord wants them to be loved! Without going into too much detail, because you need to read this book (or better yet, your husbands!), here are the 12 items that men must have in their "utility belts" for their marriage:

1. Value Your Wife Above Everything (Prov. 31:10)
2. Trust your wife and reap the benefits (Prov. 31:11, 12)
3. Provide for the family with more than money (Prov. 31:13-15)
4. Don't be afraid of her independence or intimidated by her success (Prov. 31:16, 24)
5. Appreciate her intelligence, ambition, and drive (Prov. 31: 17-19)
6. Be unselfish like her and with her (Prov. 31: 20)
7. Respect your wife's household management without meddling (Prov. 31:21,22, 27)
8. Take pride in being known by her reputation (Prov. 31:23)
9. Actually listen when she speaks (Prov. 31: 25, 26)
10. Praise her and teach your children to praise her (Prov. 31: 28,29)
11. Focus on what God finds attractive and praiseworthy (Prov. 31:30)
12. Brag about her in public (Prov. 31:31)

This is a quick read at only 123 pages and is very easy to read too! I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
