A unique guide to bringing faith, devotion, and reverence to your marriage—by a wife and mother who almost took her holy vows.
At one time, Shani Chen wanted nothing more than to renounce wordly life by becoming a nun. But after years of following a devoutly religious path, it was the nuns themselves who told Shani that she would find her calling elsewhere. Years later, she built a fulfilling life for herself as a loving wife and mother.
One day, to her surprise, she realized that the lessons that she had learned from the nuns were actually helping her in married life—and that when other couples she knew were struggling, she seemed to know how to help.
If Nuns Were Wives is a handbook for wives on how to thrive in marriage using the perspective of a nun. With an unconventional, engaging style, Chen takes her reader on a spiritual journey—founded on the realities of love and marriage and transcending dogma and religion—building the role of the American wife into a new temple for relationships.
