If you are like us, as newlyweds we had no clue how to love each other. Our experience was heavily influenced upon the broken marriages both Kim and I saw from our parents growing up. It was not after a lot of emotional damage had taken place in our marriage that we realized how empty our ability to restore our marriage was. Only our surrendering to God’s design for marriage, with lots of confessing and forgiveness, could our marriage turned around. Not only did God restore our desire to love one another, but he gave us a renewed excitement to pursue a “one flesh” relationship. We still make mistakes, but now we have the understanding to quickly resolve our conflicts and experience growth.
Every marriage is unique and our book was written to be used as an intimate, chapter by chapter personal journey through your marriage for each couple to take together. It represents years of struggling to learn to love each other, and then experiencing an amazing breakthrough. Our breakthrough resulted after understanding the essential truths about the type of marriage God intended for us. We hope you benefit from the insights we gained while struggling to reconnect and heal our emotional wounds. Instead of leaving us empty, God created marriage so that we would understand His love for us, when we fulfill our unique roles and seek unity and love for one another as husband and wife.
Unfortunately, many marriages have emotional barriers built-up over time, and must go through a healing process of confession and forgiveness before they can experience a renewed relationship. Our book provides a carefully planned and thorough study to help each couple through their own journey to understanding God's love for them. We lay out the vision for marriage, marital roles, how to heal past wounds, and the type of actions that will renew the joy and fulfillment in their marriage.
Let our struggles and victories help you not only overcome obstacles in your marriage, but also see it flourish!
