The Back Cover:
Manipulation, threats, and anger only lead to harm and hurt feelings. Horse whisperers know that the best way to communicate in relationships is with a touch of gentleness. In The Husband Whisperer, Kevin Hinckley (MEd, LPC) shows women how to use their divine nature and to listen to the Spirit in order to bring peace into their marriages.
Equal and Opposite Reaction
Every action we take has a consequence. Or, to put it more scientifically, every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If you can change your behavior, you can change your marriage.
“But I’m not the problem,” you say.
To that I ask, “Are you sure about that?”
Hinckley goes through several scenarios in the book that sounded awfully familiar, yet not once did I feel as though he was saying, “It’s all your fault.” In fact, if you think that your husband is the problem and he’ll never change and things will never get better, then this book can give you hope because there is something you can do. You don’t have to wait around for someone else to change, not when you can start the process. And, once you’ve started the process, you’ll see the equal and opposite reaction.
For example, if you are a yeller, someone who thinks they have to be the loudest one in the house or no one will listen to them, you can change that. It will take time. Rewriting a script that everyone has memorized means people have to learn new lines; but things will get better and you won’t have to yell and scream anymore to get them to hear you.
