Format: Paperback
I saw Dr. Linda on television several times and then saw that Dr. Laura endorsed her book. I was intrigued and struggling in my own marriage. So I bought her new book and was so thankful I did. Dr. Linda not only gives helpful advice on how to strengthen marriage but she addresses the way we think about marriage. After reading her book, I realized how much my thoughts influenced my marital behavior. This revelation has literally saved my marraige in that I was thinking divorce. Now I am applying her ideas and seeing my marriage turn around for the better. Just practicing the Five to One Rule has helped. I have begun to Divorce Proof My Marriage! Donna in Carol Stream, IL.

Dr. Linda has written a couple of good books. This one is AMAZING! I've never read anything like this one. She takes you down a familiar path (no matter what your marital status: newlywed, married, divorced, remarried) ...it has to be familiar because she tells so many real-life stories from 20 some years of therapy. She hits us all! I saw myself and my spouse on nearly every page. This is going to be one of those books people buy, read, and then buy another for their "friend" who's going through problems. Make room at the top of the BEST SELLER charts. Here comes Dr.Linda.

Format: Paperback
Everyone married or to-be-married should read this book. Finally Christian based, excellent advise for a troubled marriage. I got excited, could relate, cried, felt overwelmed, and found hope in this book. It is the best advise I have read on honoring my marriage covenant (besides the Bible) in the past year.

Format: Paperback
Divorce Proofing Your Marriage by Dr. Linda S. Mintle is a must read for all married couples, divorcees and those who are engaged. Dr. Mintle speaks from a biblical perspective on what is happening in the marriage institution. Right now, Christian divorces are higher than non-believers. The Bible says the devil is out to steal, kill and destroy [John 10:10]. The divorce epidemic has his signature all over it.

Not only does Dr. Mintle point out the common causes for marital breakdown, she offers the only solution to such a devastating event, God. Only God can heal a broken heart and marriage. All things are possible with God [Mark 10:27]. I have read this book several times and always close the book with a renewed strength to honor my marital covenant with God and my spouse. Outside of the Bible, this is the best book I have read on the sanctity of marriage.

If you buy Divorce Proofing Your Marriage by Dr. Linda S. Mintle, you will not be disappointed. It has sound biblical doctrine from beginning to end. Also, if you are in the midst of a marital crisis, visit and bookmark Rejoice Marriage Ministries.
