Books abound for those whose marriages are crumbling or have ended. But what about those marriages committed “’til death do us part” and yet are going through a period of time when one spouse is carrying the burden? What happens to a woman when marriage gets heavy and she gets weary? Often, when a woman ends up carrying the weight of the marriage (due to her husband’s health, choices, workload, etc.), her tendency is to “get out or check out.” She may consider her husband’s distraction an opportunity to do her own thing. But is there a better way to walk through this season? Even thrive? Susie Larson, in ALONE IN MARRIAGE, stands in as an encouraging friend, walking with you, helping you to discern how anxiety and anger will slow you down; and how loneliness and disappointment can actually refine and bless you. You will be challenged and inspired as you wrap your arms around this time and remember that God has His arms around you.
When you said "for better or for worse," you never imagined "the worse" would be so hard. And yours"re not alone. Jane is dealing with her husbandrs"s addiction to pornography. Melanie is watching her husbandrs"s obsession with computer games eat up all of their family time. Julie takes life a day at a time as her husband drifts deeper and deeper into depression. Paulars"s husband is an over-the-road trucker who is rarely home. All of these women are experiencing a season of intense loneliness in their marriages. Susie Larson has been there too and she has a message for you: When faith, hope, and love are present, itrs"s possible to thrive in every season of your life-even in the difficult times. In Alone in Marriage, Susie stands as an encouraging friend, walking with you, helping you discern how anxiety and anger will slow you down; and how loneliness and disappointment can actually refine and bless you. You will be challenged and inspired as you wrap your arms around this trying time, remembering God has his arms around you. And, as your soul gets nourished and your love matures, your marriage will also improve and be blessed. If you want more from God and your capacity for spiritual things to increase even during this trying time, yours"ve come to the right place.
