Can Ordinary Marriages Become Extraordinary?
He snapped at her during breakfast. She brought up a past mistake. He walked out angry. She left without saying good–bye. An ordinary day in an ordinary marriage. But what if things could be different? What if the moments that seem the most ordinary moments of annoyance, conflict, pain, or cold indifference could become moments in which you’re able to understand God’s incredible agenda for love and begin to do something new?
Winston T. Smith, drawing on his extensive experience as a marriage counselor, offers a simple yet powerful prescription for changing your marriage. He shows how examining the everyday disappointments and irritations in your marriage will help you understand yourself, your spouse, and your need for God’s love. Change begins with seeing day–to–day interactions from a different perspective, taking simple steps to love one another more effectively, and then learning how to take those steps over and over again. Interactions that used to devolve into pointless annoyances and fights can become an opportunity for God’s activity and love to become increasingly evident and powerful. The principles in this book will take your marriage to extraordinary places and lead you into a deeper relationship with an extraordinary God. Don’t settle for an ordinary marriage, learn to live out God’s extraordinary love in your most intimate relationship.
As a professional biblical counsellor working with couples, and a church elder running this excellent course at my own church, there is simply no better resource out there. Be sure to purchase the work book that accompanies this 'text book', it's practical, easy to understand and thoroughly biblical in its teaching. Smith is a faculty member of CCEF (Christian Counseling Education Foundation) and has a wealth of experience as a biblical counsellor, specialising in couples counselling. He has a deep understanding of the issues facing christian marriages and has produced quite simply the best tool for individual couples in home study or a church run course for a group of couples. I have seen this material transform marriages that are thoroughly broken, bringing glory to God and deep joy to the marriage that seemed impossible to the couple when they began the course. With Christian marriages failing and mirroring the world, it's time we redeemed them for God's glory and holy name, working prayerfully through this material will do just that. Praise God from whom all blessing flow!
