I entered my marriage as a naive young girl. And I didn’t know very much about men. I think this book impacted me so much because it explained how men think. Even after more than a decade married to a good man, I didn’t truly understand the way God had created him.
The book is filled with facts, statistics, national surveys, and interviews with men. The entire thing was an eye-opening revelation for me.
I don’t usually endorse books, but this one is amazing for women (and not just naive ones with endangered marriages) I would recommend every woman read it!
But the most important part of our rebuilding, was prayer and divine help from God. He walked with us through the valleys.
But we had to invite Him.
I know that you may have ascertained an opinion of my marriage before reading this post. And I don’t blame you. Some readers have even commented about our ‘perfect marriage’ or ‘how much we love each other.’ And while it’s not perfect or even close, it is good.
But, mainly because for awhile, it was very bad.
And I love him more deeply and we share more intimacy because of the bad.
So if today finds you in a crumbling marriage, please be encouraged. It can be rebuilt, even if your surrounded by broken dreams.
If your marriage is strong and secure, be thankful and remember to seal the cracks as they occur.
Many people don’t know that we nearly lost it all. My hubby and I feel challenged to share our testimony as opportunities are presented. It helps fortify the walls, ya know?
As you might imagine, just typing this post has made me feel vulnerable. So, virtual ((hugs)) are accepted and appreciated.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
