A Sneak Peek at My Book Cover!


April Cassidy Β  03-2015

My first book, The Peaceful Wife – Living in Submission to Christ as Lord, is scheduled to be available January 27, 2016!!!

I’m so excited to see how God has orchestrated this and how He is bringing it to fruition.

Kregel Publications has done an amazing job. I love my editors and the new cover design (below) and my new web banner that they created for me. What beautiful artwork! I am incredibly thankful to God for the talent, time, and effort they are pouring into this project! I am also very grateful to God for the agent He has given to me – Dan Balow (The Steve Laube Agency). I can’t begin to describe what a total God thing this process has been.

You may already check out the Amazon page for my book, if you are interested. πŸ™‚ It was a surreal moment for me to see it for the first time last week. Β I have just about completed all of the revisions and soon the Kregel editors will be doing the finishing touches to get the book ready to print. It will also be available as an e-book, as well.

Please pray with me that God might speak mightily through this book to every woman He desires to reach. Pray for wisdom for the editors and staff at Kregel. Pray for His wisdom for me. Pray for God’s protection over my family and marriage and for His wisdom for Greg. Pray that God might prepare the minds and hearts of those who will read this book to be sensitive to His voice. Pray that His will might be done and that each word might be for His glory. I long for Him to pour through me – if He is willing – and through many others to edify His church and to usher in a Great Awakening in our generation. I want to see this generation – men, women, and children – rise to become a holy, Spirit-filled generation for Christ!

Please pray that God might heal countless women, marriages, husbands, and families according to His sovereign plan. I want it to be ALL God – not me. I want to share His message accurately and with His love so that other women don’t have to stay in a hopeless prison of loneliness, worry, anxiety, fear, and bitterness – but that they might experience the freedom, joy, peace, and abundant life Jesus has died to provide for them! I can’t keep the Treasure of Christ to myself!


My new book cover! Thank you, Kregel Publications!

    I think it’s time to sing The Doxology together!!!

    Praise God from Whom all blessings flow;
    Praise Him, all creatures here below;
    Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

    (Let’s all harmonize on the next line.)

      1. April,
        If Kregel isn’t able to, there are companies who sell pre-designed bookplates with simple frames, or they will use your original artwork to customize them to coordinate with the book.

  10. Congrats April, the cover is beautiful! I noticed the new header on your blog last week and thought you were just sprucing things up a bit. πŸ™‚ I am so excited for you and will be praying for you! I have read several of the books you have recommended and cannot wait to read this one either. I have never commented before on any of your posts, I have just been a silent student, but the Lord let me to your blog about 5 months ago when I felt so hopeless and felt I had no where to turn for support for the issues my husband and I were having, and I have been following you daily ever since and reading all of your older posts as well. You have absolutely no idea how much you have helped open my eyes over these last several months and see life and my husband in a whole new light and I am so very grateful for what the Lord is doing through you and what you have done not only for me but for other women out here too. And a big thank to you the other wives sharing their stories as well. I feel like I know each one of you personally and am sending a huge hug to each and everyone one of you! Thank you for sharing and thank you for enduring this journey with me. I finally feel “whole” again and things in my marriage and spiritual life have taken a complete turn for the better and I am so very grateful! Keep on being amazing and thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart!! <3 Jess, a changed wife who is still learning…

    1. Jess,

      Aw! Thank you so much for commenting! I am THRILLED to hear what God has been doing in your life. What an honor and blessing that He has been willing to use me in a small way to be part of His beautiful work in you and in your marriage. πŸ™‚ There is no greater joy for me than to see God change people’s lives by His power for His glory!

      I praise Him for the wholeness you are experiencing and for the blessing Christ has brought to your marriage and to your soul. I can’t wait to see all that our good God has in store! And I can’t wait to give you a big hug one day – either here on this earth or in heaven!

      Much love to you, my precious sister! Thank you for walking on this road with us. πŸ™‚

  11. PRAISE GOD! The Lord has used your blog in mighty ways in my marriage. You truly are a gifted teacher of the Word. I have no doubt that He will use your book to restore and repair marriages all over and for HIS glory!

  12. Very Beautiful! And I know what is inside will be beautiful too! Can’t wait to buy a case of them!

  13. I am so excited for you April! God has truly blessed you and US! January seems so far off, but I cannot wait to read it. The cover is beautiful!

    1. isaiah54project,

      Thank you for the request. πŸ™‚ Greg and I were talking about that last night. I need to speak to Kregel to see how that might work. πŸ™‚

  14. Awesome! I’m so happy for you. You are so diligent, dedicated and obviously passionate in what you are doing here. I pray that God will multiply the fruit of your endeavors, keeping Jesus at the center πŸ™‚ God bless!

  15. I have the pre-order in my Amazon cart, ready to go when I get paid again! SO EXCITED! I may have to buy several of these to give out as gifts, also. And I can’t wait for the e-book so I can keep it in my phone, too.

    You know how much you have helped me over the past couple of years, and I hope you know how grateful I am. I can’t wait to see how God is going to use your book to reshape wives through several generations!!!

  16. What an awesome God we serve! I feel so blessed the Lord led me to your blog in the last couple months. It’s a joy to pray for you, your family, your ministry and those you serve. I already posted, but I came back to read more and posting again. πŸ™‚ Feeling blessed!! πŸ˜€

  17. Hey sis what is the difference in the book and the blog. Is it more in depth?
    I can’t wait to read it.

    1. Shy,

      The book has my story and some of my readers’ stories. It has chapters about evaluating ourselves spiritually, God’s design for marriage, submission to Christ as Lord, submission in marriage, respect, disrespect, handling conflict, and wisdom from others who have been on this journey. It also has a chapter where Greg shares his perspective. It has a lot of practical examples of respect and biblical submission. And there are numerous prayers, as well.

      I pray it will be a blessing!

  18. Looking forward to reading it. hope it will reach Africa. April, you are God’s servant for this generation. you may never know how many lives you have helped restore, by just sharing with us. God bless you and your family

    1. God’s Woman,
      I hope you will be able to have it, too. It will be available on Amazon, and as an e-book. So hopefully, that will help.

      Thank you for the encouragement!!! May God be greatly exalted! πŸ™‚

  19. Such a lovely, feminine and inviting cover! I can’t wait to read it! I’m so happy for you and happy for all the hearts I know God will touch through your widening ministry!
