How would you describe the spiritual aroma of your home?
The First Book in the Family Series
The source of this aroma is the relationship between husband and wife. Many can fake an attempt at keeping God's standards in some external way. What we cannot fake is the resulting, distinctive aroma of pleasure to God.
Reforming Marriage does what few books on marriage do today: it provides biblical advice. Whether it has to do with respect and love, confession of sin, sexual fidelity, or even the gnarly issues of divorce and remarriage, Douglas Wilson points to the need for obedient hearts on the part of both husbands and wives. This book is part of the Canon Press series of books on the family, which has helped many people trying to deal with the on the everyday messes that come with sinners living under the same roof. Godly marriages proceed from obedient hearts, and the greatest desire of an obedient heart is the glory of God.

What People Are Saying:
"Great book. I've used this book for 15+ years for pre-marriage and marriage counseling. I must have given away close to 100 copies over the years. The truths in this book are timeless and relevant for today's world!" -Charles
"The teaching in this book has transformed my marriage and opened my eyes to God's plan for me as a godly husband." -Chris
"Shortly after my husband and I got married, our selfishness began to show as we began to pick each other apart and argue endlessly. I knew we would soon be divorced if something didn't change - FAST! That is when God laid it on my heart to seek out what it meant to be a godly wife, and start fixing our brand new marriage by starting with my own self first. Between the books, The Fruit of Her Hands by Nancy Wilson, and her husband's book, Reforming Marriage, my attitude was transformed, our marriage began its repair, and now I am sincerely in love with the man I married." -a reader
"very eye-opening and very helpful to me personally" -a reader
"I have purchased 5 or 6 copies of this book and have given them away to engaged couples over the years." -a reader
"Reforming Marriage has been the single most valuable book in preserving my own marriage.... Mr. Wilson takes the traditional Biblical teaching that husbands should have authority over their families—but plunges into the meaning of this in a way that left me no room for pride. The book revealed many areas of selfishness, shirking responsibility, and unloving treatment of my wife." -a reader
"Immediately began bearing fruit in my marriage." -a reader
