In "Prescription for the Doctor's Wife", Debby Read dispenses wisdom laced with humor, wrapped up in poignant stories and tied with beautiful bows of practical advice. A doctor's wife will not only learn to survive buy to thrive in their challenging role. This is good medicine!

          ~ David Stevens, MD, MA, Chief Executive Officer, Christian Medical & Dental Association

I wish my wife had this book available to her years ago. While I'm certain she would be blessed, I am more certain I would be a better doctor -- a better person -- because of the impact it would have on her!

          ~ Gene Rudd, MD, Senior Vice President, Christian Medical & Dental Association

Having been married to a physician for 35 years, I am delighted that Debby has drawn on her experiences and written a book that speaks so personally to the hearts of medical wives. Debby's perspective will touch not only the wives of interns, residents and physicians, but the relationship issues addressed in this book will strike a chord in all marriages. The Prescription for the Doctor's Wife is filled with stories, scriptures and suggestions that can bring a smile, hope, and healing to women everywhere. I loved the inclusion of questions at the end of each chapter which make this book an ideal selection for a small group of friends to read and discuss. In fact, I can see many lifelong friendships being forged while reading and talking about this book together.

          ~ Dodie Anderson, Wife of Physician

Debby's book "Prescription for the Doctor's Wife" is a MUST READ for all women married to a medical professional. It was not only thought provoking, but also life changing for me. I have been challenged and inspired. Debby points us to Jesus who transforms us to be the medical wives we are called to be. This book is a resource for all who need practical guidance and godly wisdom for being a support to our medical spouse.

          ~ Corrie Margaron, Wife of a Clinical 4th year General Surgery Resident

The doctor's wife faces unique challenges, her life is a special calling no less than her husband's. Thirty six years of marriage to Ed has provided Debby Read with understanding of situations we medical wives all recognize. With a tender, humble heart she shares poignant stories and encourages us with truth, then practical steps to navigate these challenges. She reminds us the LORD has much to say to us about dealing with loneliness, disappointment, change, our tongues, finances, leadership, submission, and suffering. This is God's wisdom for enjoying your husband, for building up your marriage, and for present and eternal rewards.

          ~ Sally Mitchell, Wife of Physician

I thought I understood my husband's life at the hospital, especially since I had been there before. But when God gave us our beautiful daughter and I began to stay at home, I realized I didn't understand anything at all. This book is a great reminder that someone else has been there, done that, and conquered - what a great encouragement!

          ~ Andrea Colby Reed, Nurse and Wife of a Physician

This book has transformed my relationship with friends, family, husband, and most importantly, Christ. It is a book like none other with great resources and incredible biblical life applications. This book is a MUST-READ that will change your life. My husband and I are extremely grateful and blessed to have met Ed and Debby during my husband's first year of medical school; without them (and God) I don't know where our marriage would be today.   

          ~ Autumn Edwards, Wife of a Nontraditional Medical Student and Entrepreneur

When my husband first entered medical school, I remember looking for a book on how to navigate the medical world in which we were both embarking. There were very few, if none! Your book has been an encouragement to me as it is both specific to the needs of a medical spouse and full of hope as you challenge us to keep our eyes focused on God - the ultimate Helper, Encourager and Lover of our lives.

          ~ Sara Smith, Wife of a Medical Student

This book should be a handbook for every wife who wishes to honor her relationship with an often absent husband. This book deals with the realities of being a medical spouse while also honoring our unique calls as daughters of God. This book is about the life journey of one woman, but it is for all women who seek to have a strong relationship with God be the priority of their life.
