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

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

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.

This book humorously addresses some very 'needy' issues in any marriage. My husband and I have been married 35 years, raised a family together and this book is STILL relevant. I highly recommend this as a 'must read' to every married or soon to be married couple.

Format: Paperback
The title intrigued me for months. I'd see it advertised in emails. I'd read other people's opinions and finally I got the Kindle version to read for myself.

I hoped the writing was as creative and fresh as the book's title. And Elaine W. Miller delivered.

From the early pages on, Ms. Miller makes it clear that we're all idiots and she defines the term by its root meaning, "common or ordinary man." Only one person who has ever lived doesn't fit into the idiot category. Jesus Christ was/is neither common nor ordinary.

Ms. Miller addresses the 3 areas where we're helpless to make a difference--idiosyncrasies, hurts, and confusions. She then takes the reader to 10 places where we can create positive change.

I found "We All Married Idiots" insightful and practical. Even with 29+ years of marriage and a strong relationship with my wife, I found ways to strengthen our relationship in the book's pages.

I read WAMI like a morning devotional, going through a chapter a day. With each chapter, Ms. Miller covers a topic then offers reflection time in Scripture, questions based on the subject, and a prayer to end each chapter.

I'd recommend "We All Married Idiots" for those who want to strengthen or resurrect their marriages. It would be a good group study book as well.

By the way, in the last chapter of Idiots, Ms. Miller talks about the difference between an idiot and a fool. An idiot stumbles and makes mistakes in life. A fool does too. The difference is the direction a person chooses to run. A fool runs in the wrong direction.

When it comes to reading "We All Married Idiots," I ran in the right direction.

God bless & good reading,

TNeal

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!

I told my husband he needs this book. As a chaplain who is also a marriage therapist, he said with a twinkle in his eyes, "SOME husbands would be offended if you asked them to buy this!" To which the author asked me, "Did you read to him the back of the book?" That reminds us that in reality we are all idiots! And so we are. Really.

The author is witty and transparent. She tells it like it is, in our very real, complex world. We all have our moments of thoughtlessness, stress, self focus, and gradiose expectations of our mate.

Her advice is practical and simple. The only thing hard about it is reversing habits we have grown so accustomed to in our marriage communication patterns. You may just find yourself reminded to chill out the next time you are ready to have a mini-meltdown and leave hurtful collateral damage because of your bad day attitude spilling over to your loved ones.

Which brings me to my next point. You don't need to be married to benefit from the advice of this book. I asked a friend why I wanted to give it my single daughter. "Because it is about being more tolerant of difficult people," she quipped. Truly, there is so much to learn here. I can't wait for her next book to come out!
