Editorial Reviews

Review

I had no idea how humorous this book would be. I also had no idea how exactly right-on her insights on marriage and people were. Thank you Elaine for writing a book that will certainly change marriages and many people's lives.~Lane Jordan/ Best Selling Author/National Speaker

We All Married Idiots is like having a heart-to-heart with a dear friend who wants you to succeed at what you care most about: your marriage. Laugh, pray, and "amen" your way through this delightful and soul nournishing gift from the Father's heart.~Jeanette Levellie, Author/Speaker

Elaine wrote a book that reaches into the deep places of the soul that challenges and convicts. I laughed, I cried, I raved, and I finally submitted to the truth that God knows what's best for my marriage.~Jody Zilske, English Professor, Writer, Speaker.

With gentle wit, humor and wisdom, Elaine points out where so many of us go wrong in a marriage, the ways we tear down with our hands what God means to be built up for His glory and our good.~Mary Schneider, freelance writer

Elaine W. Miller is a gifted communicator. We All Married Idiots will have you rolling on the floor laughing while being challenged toward a Christ-centered marriage. Each chapter provides fodder for discussion, self-examination, and personal growth. Buy one for yourself and additional copies to give away!~Carol Kent, Speaker and Author

Format: Paperback
I can't begin to express how much I love this book. Elaine's sense of fun comes through clearly in each page, along with the wisdom and eternal Truths every marriage needs to succeed.

While this book has a Christian worldview, I found it extremely accessible and practical. As the wife of a non-believer, I am hyper vigilant against letting "Christianese" slip in to my conversations. I can always tell when I'm using it- Ken rolls his eyes and tunes out anything I have to say. The struggle to communicate on a level he can understand, not just intellectually, but on a heart level, has made me far more aware of the roots of my own beliefs and the dangers of just parroting "Christian beliefs" without first searching my own heart.

Elaine's vocabulary is inclusive and loving, reaching out to all hearts, men and women alike. She models a loving marriage through the mishaps of her own journey, and shares what it takes to run the race well.

My life, and my marriage, have been blessed by this book. I know it will bless many others as well.

-Mary Schneider

It makes you think, not only about your spouse, but yourself, too. I thought I would get a better understanding about my husband but ended up seeing things about myself in a whole different light. Reading the title, I thought 'yep, I definitely married an idiot!' but reading the book I realized I was also an idiot! It's cute, funny and really helpful!

When I told my husband the name of the this book, he said, "Now that sounds like a good book!" And indeed it is, and one that every married couple should read and discuss together. Elaine Miller gives us that opportunity in her "Change" section. Elaine emphasizes that there are no perfect marriages because there are no perfect people. Couples today are so quick to leave a marriage hoping to find a better one...but they take their same "idiot self" into the next marriage to another "idiot".

I loved this book so much that I included a quote from it in my book Dear God, He's Home! A Woman's Guide to her Stay-at-Home Man, and included it in my recommended reading list. That is the highest recommendation I could give since I only wanted to include books that I knew would help strengthen marriages during a time of transition.

Readers will find themselves changing and discovering that those things that drove them crazy about their spouses are not so bad after all. And who knows...maybe neither spouse will feel like such an idiot after they read and study this book together!

I don't generally read "How To Have A Happy, Heaven-Blessed Marriage" because if I haven't learned how to cross the t's and dot the i's after 57 years of marriage,there's probably not much time left to learn.

But Elaine Miller's book is different. I bought it, read it and LOVED it. Her self-deprecating humor saved the day in some would-be tense situations, making us appreciate her even more. As a pastor's wife for many years, she's likely lived in some glass houses. But it was her love for her family and friends and the beloved members of churches Elaine and Dan have served that prompted Elaine to write about the pitfalls as well as the proven pathways of a successful marriage.

And what she says makes sense! This book could be a wonderful study guide in a church setting for those eagerly anticipating marriage or for those couples who've been stuck for years in a rut of blinding boredom and tedious tradition.

I cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a great book.

If you fear you married an idiot, you'll want to read this delightful book for the cure! In Elaine Miller's warm, sensitive style that made Splashes of Serenity for Drained Wives so popular, she encourages readers to focus on the ten things they can change about their marriages. Full of witty truths, heartfelt prayers, and examples from her own marriage, Elaine weaves a superbly-crafted, helpful book for anyone seeking to keep their marriage strong or rekindle the flames they thought had burned out. Reading We All Married Idiots infused new life into my own marriage of 37 years. I believe it will help yours, too, and all the idiots you know.

My husband and I read devotionals every morning and I must admit when I saw this one, I hesitated just a bit. I mean, would my husband think I thought he was an idiot if I gave him this to read? But when I started reading it, I found the title applied to both of us!

I love the way the author, Elaine Miller, uses humorous (and very real) anecdotes to show couples how to get past the hurt and anger in their marriage. It's full of wisdom from the Bible and life lessons. Each day is divided up into five sections: the story, verses for meditation, Miller's interpretation of those verses, how to apply that wisdom through change, and most importantly, a prayer to ask for God's help to make those changes.

This is a book geared towards hurting relationships, but it's also helped our healthy relationship. I can see a real change in my husband's attitude (not that there was a problem with it, but it's actually gotten better) and that's led to a change for the better in my attitude. And it all started with this little book.

I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Elaine Miller, for writing it.
