I have just recently completed this book. What a terrific experience. Not only did it enhance my relationship with the Lord, it made me realize the importance of trusting him and having unwavering faith. The topic on "getting in your prayer line" was something I needed. If you are having trouble in your relationship, you must read this book. I strongly recommend it to engaged couples or anyone wanting a fulfilling relationship with their spouse.

Format: Paperback
This book has changed my life. The simple princicples that only Christ can meet our deepest needs is key. He (Jesus) should be our only expectation. Everything else in life: job titles, cars, houses, trips, even family members, will dissappoint us.

Joy That Lasts was an eye opening read for me. Gary Smalley shows us how to focus on an everlasting Joy by keeping our eyes on Jesus and not on things that can change, be destroyed, or become unsatisfying. Joy that lasts is found in the abiding love of God. Gary uses the wisdom garnered from his negative experiences to show how he found a greater truth about joy. This book should help you learn to maintain a joy that rebounds even in tough times. Remember the joy of the Lord is your strength.

There are some secrets to having "joy" in and with your spouse.... so why not study, discover, and rediscover these secrets for the sake of having a GREAT marriage instead of a medeocre marriage? This book is WAY better than getting your solutions from Hollywood or secular magazines about marriage.
