The Powerful Influence of a Wife - Part 1

Dr. James Dobson
Cindi and Hugh McMenamin
Christian wives are often misled by contemporary culture’s false expectations of their husbands. Cindi McMenamin, author of When a Woman Inspires Her Husband, shares two pieces of advice with Dr. James Dobson. First, she says a wife needs to look to God to be the primary One to meet her emotional needs. And second, she should become her husband’s biggest cheerleader, giving him the respect he desires. When she follows that biblical model, as Cindi’s husband, Hugh, confirms in this thoughtful roundtable discussion, her husband will become the man she needs him to be.
