Both inspirational and self-help, Helpmeet by Lola Babalola is a timely book that addresses crucial questions about marriage and family. At a time when marriage values are threatened by a culture that promotes relativism and individualism, where people focus more on winning at work and in business than building deep and lasting relationships, Helpmeet comes across as a message that will help people create meaning in relationships and find happiness in service.

With real-life stories, anecdotes and personal experiences, biblical references and the traditional wisdom of her people, Lola Babalola creates a guidebook for women — and men — on how to approach the area of life that has been a cause for joy, anxiety, and suffering for millions of people: marriage. In this slim but powerful book, readers will find the secret to success not only in marriage, but in relationships in general. What does it take to create a lasting relationship? How can one grow in fidelity? What makes a successful relationship, marriage, or partnership? These are the questions the author answers in this book.

This is a marriage guide for anyone who wants to create a life-long, deep and meaningful relationship. In very beautiful prose, Babalola slowly leads readers into the secrets of successful marriages. The stories of three generations of helpmeets will inspire many readers to go beyond mediocrity and reach out for deeper levels of trust and intimacy. And what does God have to do with all this? The answer you’ll get will surprise you. This is one of the books I’d recommend as a helpful guide for marriage counselors, individuals considering serious relationships, and couples looking for tools to help deepen their connection.
