  2. Listen, really listen, to what your sweetie is saying. Don’t interrupt until he is finished. Discuss, not argue, but discuss whatever the situation is. Stop and pray before reacting, you’ll be glad you did.

  3. I am constantly looking for encouragement from older women with many years of experience being happily married, either written or spoken. I write quotes in my journal to re-read that keep me focused on the good work of staying engaged in a joyful marriage. I keep your latest book by my side of the bed to peruse right before bedtime, then I read I Cor. 13 in the amplified version to remind me what HIS love looks like. I am made in HIS image and should be able to give and receive love. Re-learning respect/honor and kindness in our every day speech and actions has been the latest project. Thank you for your “running” encouragement for wives. Thank you for sharing the lessons God is teaching you.
    Warmest regards,

  4. I think this was so beautifully said. My husband and I struggle to be gracious to each other and it’s such a hard lesson to re-learn.. sometimes multiple times a day. We are fortunate that our love supersedes our stubborn-ness, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t use help in getting past our issues.

  5. The advice I would give a wife about avoiding pitfalls is to let go of expectations and to not keep a running tally of wrongs

  6. This giveaway is awesome. I’ll be grateful if I win. But I hope The Lord blesses whoever is in really need. Blessings to you

  7. I have written on the inside of my Bible these words : “Never use your love for a person to change them but to in order to change yourself.” Also, it’s more important to maintain unity and peace in a relationship than to be right.

  8. Thank you for this wise post. In response to the question, over the past 11 years two big moments for me have been: Stormie Omartan’s reminder, “Lord change me” and Jennifer’s reminder to keep intimacy a top priority. God used both messages at key times. I look forward to what He will teach next and how He may allow me to minister to others.

  9. I like the quote about love is what’s left when the selfishness is removed. So true. It’s hard to keep turning off your own needs and feelings to get to that. I’m going through a divorce now but have learned so much. I’m just really sad our marriage couldn’t be saved.

  10. I was just listening to an old broadcast of Elenor Page on BBN yesterday where she used the Amplified version of 1 Corinthians 13 to gently open a young wife’s eyes to what real love is about and use that as a standard for her actions of love. I would live to read this book! I failed this test of loving my husband as in 1 Cor. just yesterday. Thank you, Lord for these reminders!
