I'm so grateful I took this leap of faith. My boyfriend and I are trying it as we are dating with intention of marriage. I absolutely love the change I'm seeing within myself which ultimately is changing the way he reacts to me. I went into this book thinking he was the one who needed it more but I was corrected on day 1. It's teaching me to be kind and serve him without expecting anything back. He has told me he sees my efforts and it makes him want to be a better man. I won't lie, some days are easier than others but this book has helped guide us to let go and let God. We have both slowed down on magnifying what the other person is not and are appreciating everything the other person has to offer. We're picking our battles and processing truth verses feelings.Despite small bickering, we haven't argued since we started this book because we are learning and finally BOTH willing. God's hand has never been stronger on our relationship and I don't think we have ever been happier.
Extremely fast shipping (received in 2 days with Prime) and in great condition.
Women, READ IT! Are you the wife you need to be? Do you know how to be a wife? Probably not. We all get married and just move on. How do we learn to be a husband or wife? We usually don't and then find excuses to blame our failed marriage. If you question whether or not you are loving someone, when you say, "I really love them", but it's just not working. Looking into Corinthians within the Bible at what Love really is...you know...Love is Patient, Kind, it does not Boast, it Holds no records of wrong, it does not envy, it does not hurt....read the entire thing and then ask yourself. Do I really express love?
This book has changed my life, as a husband, a friend, a son, and am overall person. My marriage is not about us, or me. It's about my wife. My job is to love her without condition and to do EVERYTHING for her!!! If she's on the same path, than aren't my needs met?? They are.
This book itself will not fix your relationship or marriage. What will? Using it as a tool and truly open your heart and live to YOURSELF and be willing to say, "I'm wrong", "I'm sorry", and "I've failed". Then change it.
Our society is so focused on allowing us to be right and us being scared to back down and say, "I'm wrong, I love you, and I don't want to hurt you". Maybe we are the ones truly hurt?
This is a life changing tool...only when YOU are ready to use it.
If I remember correctly, the author began changing his behaviors and did these things, pretty much out of nowhere, and by keeping to this book, his wife changed her attitude also, their marriage turned around, and became Christ-centered. But it was very different for both my friends. They each received the book with joy, began keeping to it, but their wives were both skeptical and didn't receive their actions positively. Today, neither of them are married any longer to the woman they bought it for.
So don't look at this book as an easy fix for your marriage or your relationship with your wife. Instead, use it WITH other means (get involved together with a church group, pray together, read the Bible (separately and together), Christian marriage counseling, join a group at church that's going through the book together, etc.). Jesus needs to be the center of the marriage as a whole, and both of your lives.
