Conventional wisdom says that "it takes two" to turn a troubled marriage around and that both partners must have a shared commitment to change. So when couples can't agree on how - or whether - to make their marriage better, many give up or settle for a less-than-satisfying marriage (or think the only way out is divorce). Fortunately, there is an alternative. It Takes One to Tango is a groundbreaking guide that shows how one determined partner can spark lasting, significant change in a marriage.

The insightful, uncommonly spoken encouragement definitely impacted my view of communication, especially within my marriage. No matter what happens in any relationship, the basis of my reaction and responses are my own to understand, accept, change or let go of. Winifred uses life stories to bring reality to her insights. Few things in life are easy, communications are not one of them, but the practicality and encouragement from her book are worth the read.
The changes in my life, and marriage have already benefited greatly.

The enemy wants us to feel rejected, left out, lonely, and less than. When we allow him to speak lies through our rejection, he pickpockets our purpose. Cripples our courage. Dismantles our dreams. And blinds us to the beauty of Christ's powerful love. In Uninvited, Lysa shares her own deeply personal experiences with rejection - from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical over.

Throughout this book Lisa shared vulnerably and honestly about rejection, inclusion and exclusion. I highly recommend this book.
