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.
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.
The book was a very easy read as well. I did about three chapters a night over four nights and it maybe took me a total of an hour each time I sat down. My fiance also read the book and she felt it was easy to read and had a lot of good information. As we went through this, we discovered things about ourselves and our relationship that we never really considered before. It helped to show us the things we do in our relationships that we can't change and then gave us advice on the things we can change.
Overall, we were both pleased with the information in this book. Even if you're like me and not really religious, the content of this book is a great help for pre-marriage considerations.
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.
