Marriage is the place where a man works out the principles and passion of his life in God. He wants it to be a place like heaven and so does his wife.
Genesis 2 18-20 (NLT) says, “Then the Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is just right for him.’ So the Lord God formed from the ground all the wild animals and all the birds of the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would call them, and the man chose a name for each one. He gave names to all the livestock, all the birds of the sky, and all the wild animals. But still there was no helper just right for him.”
No one was just right for Adam until God made the woman who was all that he needed, and she fulfilled the vision of God for marriage to this day. “This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the two are united into one” (Genesis 2:24 NLT).
In Your Wife Is Not Your Momma Bishop Boone make you laugh and makes you cry as you see yourself and all that God could make you to be if you would submit to him. Untold marriages have been saved and others released into life-long joy as men recognized the true meaning of marriage and found their place in God’s will with their wives.
Quote from the book
“Most people who marry, at least for the first time, are still young and inexperienced. God knows all about that. He isn’t concerned because over a period of time He can transform the young groom and bride into a mature man and woman of God who have grown older and wiser together through the years.”
Publisher’s Weekly gave rave reviews to Your Wife Is Not Your Momma by saying that the author “paints an engaging portrait of God’s master plan for marriage relationships. The message is simple and, although directed at husbands, is for everyone, married couples, singles and divorcees.” Married for nearly forty years and in ministry for most of that time, Bishop Boone has spoken before an estimated million men in live audiences. He issues a call for men and women to put on the low look of Christ-likeness, and start serving one another instead of demanding to be served. He says this spirit of serving needs to be recaptured by the Church and proclaims as the subtitle says, this will bring heaven to your home.”

“I just want to say that through this book, the Lord has given me new insight into what a husband and marriage are called to be (and can be). Areas of leadership, parent-child relationships, and friendships were also so beautifully written about!”—Divorced woman, El Paso
