I have been trying to figure out ways to better my marriage and get off of the roller coaster ride. The ideas presented gives me a great outline on how to be successful as a child of God, Wife and mother.
Getting a ghost writer who knows about appealing to readers or writing realistic dialogue would have helped this book a great deal. The supposed quotes from actual patients had the same stilted, jargon-filled quality as the intrusive narrative of the writers. Advice books are difficult to do well in audio format especially when graphics and text features appear with regularity.
Very helpful in learning what is healthy in a relationship and what is not. Additionally helpful in practically learning to place boundaries on oneself to remain in a healthy place. Living in freedom is worth the work.
This book was good. Interesting, well taken advice from a biblical perspective. In retrospect, I think I would have liked a hard copy of this book since I am the type a person that likes to highlight and mark books like these to use for future reference. I am sure I will listen to it again.
While the info in this book was good and helped me help others, something just made it hard to listen to. Not sure if it was the reader or the way the book was written. Worth reading, but was just hard to keep reading.
The messages and methods were very helpful. I found his quoting the bible throughout to be distracting at many points.
Every engaged and married person should receive a copy of this book. I'm not Christian and I cannot overstate the clarity and wisdom provided with regard to marriage. Marriage 101.
