Not head of everything in the world. I first got it the year after we got married, back when I thought my husband and our marriage was perfect. I've owned this book for years. I first got it the year after we got married, back when I thought my husband and our marriage was perfect. There seems to be an unhealthy tradition to place the blame on the woman and the entire burden and responsibility upon her for the success of her marriage. Those chapters are only 3-4 pages. I didn't agree with her teaching that my lack of prayer can limit God's work in my husband's life, or that if I prayed enough, God will bless my husband in tangible here-and-now ways.
This book has helped me to soul search and keep believing and praying. I received a new revelation, as it was a different time in my life and my marriage now than the other times I've read it.

Actually, that is one of the best things about it, its holistic approach to protection through faith. I find it to be very legalistic and works oriented. It is difficult to imagine that a loved one betrays you, either morally or physically. Lord, I know that we pass a spiritual inheritance to our children. Great book to read if you've ever thought to yourself or cried out in the night.
