This book also reminded me of "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers--about a woman who has a tough past but is pursued relentlessly by a man whom God commands to love her unconditionally, eventually healing her (even as hard as it is at first). I have a feeling Jamie would LOVE this book!
Thankfully I learned some good lessons to take with me; it was eye opening to hear the pillars of their relationship and realize I was not applying many of them. I even felt discomfort as I saw I was going down the same destructive path of not working at my own relationship. There's always room to improve, no matter who you are.
In light of their story, I have to say Jamie and Doug are awesome--stay together forever! I can't wait to see how your love blossoms as you continue to work hard for each other, because the other person is worth it!
(The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because there were some editing problems in some parts that made it hard to read!)
One other note that I didn't care for was her portrayal of Doug. I know he supports her and by now has read and chosen to stand by his wife. I do think he was criticized in ways that weren't needed. In one moment you're admiring her humility, but then she caps it off with something disparaging Doug. Authoring their hardships is one thing but it is a delicate balance between honesty and needles put downs. I felt badly for him and wished she respected his dignity more when expressing her obstacles with him. Putting another down simply does not raise your value. Jamie is already valuable and flawed like the rest of us. If Doug was a co-author and wanted to go that low with his self critique, then go for it. But it was mentioned more than once that he was not yet privvy to some information on the book which gave the appearance of him as a sitting duck. I don't believe that Doug is the saint and she's some flawed work in progress. I just think he should have been portrayed more fairly. In a book like this, express your flaws but be certain the readers are well aware that your partner is happy being portrayed that poorly.
Wifey 101 is a cute title but I don't think the advice portions were of any value. They took away from her story. She's just not in the advice-giving stage of life when it comes to marriage. Those seasoned in marriage are often limited on giving advice because we are always learning and all so different. It made Jamie appear vain which is contrary to pretty much everything else she's shared with the world. It is simply a confusing part of the book that a good team would have helped her weed out.
All in all, I'm honored she shared her story. Truly my dislikes center on the organization, grammar, and editing. Try again with a team who cares and takes the time to edit well, you have one knock out story.
I sincerely hope this review is helpful in propelling this story to reach it's powerful potential. I wish you both all the very best.
Thank you Jamie for sharing your powerful & very personal story. Don't beat yourself up any more about decisions you made in the past. God forgives us for our sins if we ask Him.. So if He can forgive you, then you can forgive yourself.
