Experience the blessings of an imperfect marriage. We all - at one time or another - have opportunities to act right when our spouses act wrong. There are no perfect marriages or perfect spouses. We know that having a good marriage requires effort and hard work. Yet we often don't know how to continue to love when we are angry, hurt, scared, or just plain irritated. Nor are we sure what that kind of love is supposed to look like.

You pick up this book bc you want to respond better in negative situations only to find your responses are just as sinful as what you were dealt... to love like Christ with the intention for the good of others means forgiving, forbearing, correcting, and especially examining yourself so as to be gracious to others... the concept in this book can extend past marriage and into raising children or dealing with our neighbors... I especially was touched by the sweet written prayers at the end of each chapter calling us to humble ourselves before God and cast our cares on Him for He cares for us. 1 Peter 5:6-7

  • The Gospel Comes with a House Key

  • Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in Our Post-Christian World

With the story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the Gospel to our lost friends and neighbors. Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own but as God’s tools for the furtherance of his kingdom as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives - helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

First 2 chapters are a bit redundant but let her warm up because you will rejoice and cry your way through the rest of the book. The Lord has opened my eyes even more to my pride and the blessing of opportunity. May the Gospel spread as we open our hearts and our home to a needy world.
