Marriage can be surreal, unpredictable, and enticing all at the same time. We find and fall in love with our best friend, and all of our dreams seem to be coming true. We've heard of the princess being rescued by her prince and they ride off into the sunset to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, this isn't how marriage is in real life, especially when you're trying to be what God has called you to be. Marriage is two self-centered individuals coming together to live as one.
Given all the foes and dips that may come with marriage, this book gives the basic understanding of marriage the way God intended and not as the way fairy tales has made it out to be. It's meant to help wives be more self-sacrificial toward their husband by acting in grace, love, and forgiveness. In this journey with our best friends, we can work toward being more humbling and giving. It takes more than love alone for a great marriage. The basis of a great marriage starts with a strong spiritual foundation, a strong friendship which grew into a strong romance, along with tons of work, sacrifices, and submission by both partners to make it last.
This book provides Rae-Beth's opinion with communication, getting through the tough times, fair fighting, and keeping God the center of the marriage. Dive in and see marriage from one wife's perspective.
What People Are Saying:
Thank you so much for sharing your story! I think you did a wonderful job of sharing your story in an honest and open way. As a reader, I felt your vulnerability through the pages and loved when you said "we" instead of saying "you."I felt you invited me to learn alongside you as we chatted a coffee shop. I also greatly appreciated and enjoyed you sharing frequent Scriptures throughout. I saw that the Word was foundation of what you were sharing and how we wives can be a gracious wife by actively loving the Word. Lastly, your stories were the most powerful. As I mentioned in the beginning, your vulnerability spoke volumes to me and I was willing to hear what you had to say. Some of the things you mentioned, I have been nervous to voice to anyone and it was a balm to my heart to read another woman's story who was willing to open up and share those struggles. I could strongly relate, especially in the chapter of trust. This was an impactful read, which I enjoyed.
Your book is wonderful and definitely a blessing. My husband and I counsel a lot of couples and this would be a book that I would give to help them overcome whatever struggles they may be having. Every married and single woman needs a copy of your book. ~ Deborah D.
