Speaketh the Language of Him
A man comes home and says to his wife, “I had a horrible day at work today.” She says, “Tell me about it.” “I just did,” he replies. Men and women communicate differently—and, all too often, not at all! This book is a sort of “linguistics” school that will teach you to speak your husband’s language: male . You’ll discover simple ways to cultivate a sense of humor about your male and female differences, open conversations with him—and keep them going, frame what you’re saying with masculine interest areas, respond proactively to what your husband shares, and develop thicker skin (this alone is worth the price of the book). Change up your language, spice up your marriage! It’ll be your husband’s favorite thing you’ve ever done…well, almost!

Story Behind the Book
“The concept for this book was born at five o’clock in the morning as I was working out,” says Connie. “To keep myself awake, I thought about what Nancy and I should write to follow The Politically Incorrect Wife . ‘What’s a topic that almost every married woman in America is interested in?’ I asked myself. Almost instantly, the answer came: How to get your husband to talk to you. Thus began a lot of reading, researching, surveying, and practicing. We were surprised time and again at what worked, and what didn’t! We think you will be as well.”
Two women's ministries leaders have collaborated on a primer that promises to resolve the age-old mystery of communication between the sexes--and leave men and women conversing happily. Cobb and Grigsby present a five-step "training program" for women who choose to love their husbands more effectively, but need practical help learning the best approach.
