A lifelong marriage is rare in our day of fleeting relationships and broken families. But James Ford Jr. shows men that lasting love is possible, by living according to God’s Word, and by loving God’s way. Drawing from scriptural wisdom, Pastor Ford reflects on how one man–Jacob–loved his woman, and how Jacob’s example teaches today’s men these must-have romance skills: Meeting your wife’s spiritual, emotional, and social needs Protecting and cherishing your wife Celebrating the God-given differences between you and your wife
Blessed with more than 40 years of marriage, Pastor Ford writes to all men–whether single, engaged, or married–who want to make their future or existing marriage as meaningful and satisfying as God intended it to be.
The Bible states that God took part of the man’s rib and made the woman. This is significant for many reasons, one of which teaches us that the woman’s love would be expressed in her protection of her husband emotionally. The ribcage protects the vital organs like the heart and the lungs. Yes, God has made man the physical protector of the woman but He’s equaled the playing field by making the woman the emotional protector of the man. It has been said that man is the head, but it is the woman that turns the head. In Titus chapter 2 the older women are to teach the younger women how to love their husbands. When a Woman Loves a Man will explore and explain the characteristics that a woman demonstrates that expresses her love to her man in the way that God intended.
