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 marriages. 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 opportunities 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 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.
