I’m not exactly sure when it started.
But it seemed to come out of a long conversation that my husband and I had along with another couple who are close friends of ours.
They’d long felt an underlying tension in their marriage and asked us if we could possibly help.
We said we’d be glad to try.
After they’d explained their particular situation. The ongoing frustration and hurt. The hidden conflict that seemed to spill over into more and more areas of their relationship….
When suddenly my husband had an unusual insight. He shared it with our friends and they immediately saw what he meant.
There was more to it.
And that’s when I had a little a-ha moment of my own.
So I offered my perspective. You know, from a wife’s point-of-view.
Somehow it was that his-and-hers combination that opened things up for them.
Opened up the real conversation.
Opened up wounds that needed healing.
Opened up hearts that had been closing.
Sometimes it takes two
It was about that point when Matthew and I looked at each other and realized that sometimes….sometimes it helps to hear from both a husband and a wife.
So we decided to write a marriage book together. Taking turns. The wife’s view. The husband’s view. And then the wife’s again.
We ended up writing two marriage devotionals. One for him and one for her. From the both of us.
And now because I’m so excited about these books.
And because I love summer so much.
We are celebrating with a big summer giveaway!
We’re offering a copy of both our Marriage Wisdom for Him AND Marriage Wisdom for Her—31 Day Devotionals for Building a Better Marriage.
