I write about marriage and family, because those are often topics that are on my heart. When people ask me for advice on being a wife and being married, I always tell them, “Marriage is a lot of work. It can bring you your greatest joys and your deepest sorrows. It’s a ministry. It’s challenging, but it is one of THE MOST rewarding things that you can partner with another person (who was once a complete stranger if you really think about it) to do during the course of your life.”
I don’t try to sugar coat it. I often tell people that it’s not all sunshine and rainbows and sugar cookies– because IT IS NOT.
I also greatly value the wisdom and insights of others who have done (and are still doing) the work to make marriage WORK.
Truth be told, we that are married can still learn a lot of lessons from those who have experienced divorce and I’ve shared my own testimony of the lessons my husband and I learned during the course of his parents’ divorce.
Wisdom comes from many sources and I’ve been privileged to review From Marriage to Divorce Thru Depression to Remarriage And What God Taught Me Along the Way, a text which provides insights the author shares after battling cancer, financial losses, health issues, unemployment, loss of family members, separation, divorce, depression, mental illness, remarriage.
Here’s more about the book from the publisher’s description:
Cancer, financial losses, health issues, unemployment, loss of family members, separation, divorce, depression, mental illness, remarriage.
The enemy throws all he can at us to get us off course. Hanging On to Hope chronicles one person’s journey through life’s trials and how God brought her through each one. This same God can bring you through whatever you are facing as well.
HANGING ON TO HOPE will help you see that God CAN and WILL see you to the other side of the trial you are facing.
