Looking for a small group resource for married women?

Have you ever talked to someone who needed help learning how to build a good marriage? Someone who really struggled and you weren't sure how to help? Have you wandered bookstore aisles looking for a book that might help you become the wife you want to be, but aren't sure how to get there? Then this resource might be for you. The book focuses on helping women through small mentoring groups. The Mentor's Guide provides step by step ideas and guidance for a mentor, taking the mystery and concern out of leading a group. The Mentor's Guide provides tips on how to start a program, potential problems that could arise, how to choose mentors, and how to lead the actual groups. The Beautiful Wife book provides the curriculum. Each chapter ends with reflection questions to help women personalize what they've read. That then leads to First Steps which takes the study deeper in the Bible, prayer, and the prayer journal while also suggesting concrete examples.
If you feel called to work with married women and a burden to help them thrive in marriage, then this set of books could be a wonderful place to start.
Here's more from the publisher: 
There was a time when Sandy Ralya's marriage was in trouble. While she eventually sought guidance from godly mentors and Christian counselors, she didn't forget the fear and isolation she experienced and knew other women were feeling the same. So in 2003 Sandy started Beautiful Womanhood, a marriage mentoring ministry, to help other women know they are not alone in their struggles. Being a wife has always been a difficult role to understand. It's not a one-size-fits all formula and with that in mind, Sandy has written The Beautiful Wife o that all women can benefit from her "messy" story and her insights into the value of marriage mentorship. 
"...An incredible handbook that every woman needs. I believe this book will be life-changing for many, many women and their marriages."  -Best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn 

"Sandy Ralya candidly shares her experiences, others' personal stories, and God's wisdom to mentor women for great marriages." -Florence Littauer, speaker and best-selling author of Personality Plus 

"Simply and honestly, Sandy speaks to the real issues that wives deal with and gives practical guidance on how to become 'beautiful' in Christ." -Dan Seaborn, author and founder of Winning at Home

"It is my passion to help women discover God's heart for their marriage, just as the other women helped me," writes Sandy. "When women share with each other the details of their journeys with God as wives, it's a beautiful thing indeed." The Beautiful Wife has two companion resources - Prayer Journal andMentor's Guide.
