Find out what you can do to identify, nurture or become a truly godly man and mate in In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man.

“Men, if you want to become a truly godly man and husband, In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man is a must-read. Women, if you want to know what to look for and nurture in a lifelong mate, this book is for you, too.”

“Michelle McKinney Hammond tells it like it is, without pretense or sugarcoating. In her own unique style, she relays simple truths concerning the essence of masculinity from God’s perspective. Every man wants to be ideal, but not many know what it takes to be God’s ideal man. In Search of the Proverbs 31 Man identifies God’s heartbeat concerning men. It points out the fact that a false understanding of manhood can be damaging not only to the individual, but to those for whom he cares a great deal. This book shows you that the Proverbs 31 man is not damaged goods; instead, he’s a ‘polished diamond’ in the eyes of the Great Diamond Maker.”
–Dr. Creflo A. Dollar, CEO of World Changers Ministries and author of The Successful Family
“Michelle McKinney Hammond never wastes even a second of your time. She skirts no issues, never runs from controversy, and consistently engages her readers in authentic and entertaining dialog. She is so quick-witted, outrageously funny, and she holds your attention from start to finish. This is one of her most perceptive books. It’ s right on the mark. It goes to the heart of the ever-present man—woman debate, and it weighs in on the side of truth, of what works, and of what it takes to build a satisfying relationship that will last a lifetime. She speaks strongly to men, and she speaks just as strongly to women. As a ‘seasoned’ clinical psychologist, I find her ideas highly stimulating and unusually helpful.”

“Who isn’t in search of the Proverbs 31 man? This book is for singles who want to know what character qualities are a must in a mate; for men who are confused by our culture and want to know what kind of man God esteems; and for women, tired of pressuring their men, who want to find the freedom of being a helper and soul mate. Michelle McKinney Hammond helps us discover the power of a Proverbs 31 couple who is willing to do it God’s way.”
