You talk for thirty minutes, telling him every detail of your day. He has three great ideas for how to fix your problems.

"Why can't you just listen to me?" you ask. You pull back, he gives up, and your marriage suffers.

The problem? He's a man. And you expect a girlfriend.

You could play the blame game. Or dish out the cold treatment. Or find a better way.

Many women feel their husbands don't listen the way they "should." How to Get Your Husband to Listen to Youis not about how to change a man's God-given way of thinking but about how to initiate healthy communication and enjoy the blessing of a husband whowants to listen.

Discover specific ways to:

Help your husband value what you say and how you say it
Understand what your husband really wants (and it might not be what you think!)
Rebuild love and respect in your marriage
Become a wife whose husband wants her insights
Strengthen communication in marriage through your communication with God
Give your husband the desire to listen to your needs, your words, and your heart
