God tells us to love our enemies. But what about loving and honoring ^a husband who chooses to walk away from his family, setting up residence in a prison ^of addiction? Seldom is there a faith with the tenacity that the author displayed ^during her twenty-two years of praying, enduring tremendous trials and sorrow.


"I ^will honor my vow, no matter what," were words spoken by this young bride, believing ^in the promise of new life and vows spoken. The "no matter what" took this family ^on such a seemingly discouraging journey that even Christian family and friends ^believed restoration was impossible. Joy learned to place her complete hope in Christ ^alone, believing that God's mercy and grace is sufficient to reach even the darkest ^and most hardened heart - including her own.

A beautiful, transparent portrait ^of redemption as marriage is viewed as a living, breathing example of Christ and ^His bride. Readers will be encouraged and equipped to persevere through ^deep marital waters.

JOY MCCLAIN Through song writing, publishing (over 150 short stories, ^Bible studies and articles), teaching, counseling and public speaking Joy passionately ^helps women understand their redemptive position in Christ. Joy has a unique call, ^marrying what women desire to express to words that give them a voice in which to ^do so. Married for 26 years, 20 of which involved a battle against her husband Mark's ^alcoholism, she and Mark have four children and live in Greenwood, Indiana.

Part Three: Lessons Learned ^Along the Way

Your Maker is Your HusbandUnder Mercy - Choosing ^to forgiveIt Wasn't Supposed to be Like ThisGod Loves MeThe ^Promises Are For Me TooGuard Your HeartKeeping Your Marriage PrivateLord, ^Send Me!The Word of God
Part Four: Walking it Out: Examining ^Your Own Heart Personal Study




One of the most challenging assignments I've ever seen a wife embrace ^is that of loving well in a spiritually mismatched marriage. Joy McClain authentically ^shares the depths of the challenges of her marriage and how she experienced God ^in the midst of her valley. This is a must-read book for every wife who faces the ^daily heart ache of a spiritually mismatched marriage. ~ Dr. Dennis Rainey, ^President, FamilyLife



This is a story of disappointment, addiction, and ^family pain but more so it is a story of God's sustaining hope. Months turn to years, ^hope turned to tears but Joy remained faithful to her covenant. She never gave up ^on her God dream. She truly learned what it means to wait upon the Lord. In the ^end we all witnessed a miracle. Her children saw their mom transformed by suffering ^and their father transformed by grace. The beauty of this amazing story of forbearance, ^forgiveness, and redemption is how long suffering the Lord is and how personally ^He answers prayer. When you read this book you will praise God afresh and renew ^your hope in God 's providence and provision. I was thankful to have a front row ^seat to see God at work. ~ Dr. Garrett Higbee, Executive Director ^Biblical Soul Care, Harvest Bible Chapel


You can always tell when a book has ^been written out of the depths of experience versus intellectual insight. Joy has ^written and rewritten this book from years of experience, wrestling with the Lord, ^and staying in the trial. As a result, she has gained a completeness and maturity ^to her life that readers will find rich, deep, encouraging, and practical. This ^is a great resource for women struggling in less-than-perfect marriages and the ^friends who walk beside them. ~ Robb Besosa, Executive Director, ^Twelve Stone Ministries


 




"No Matter What"


Joy intended to keep her vow ^to remain with her beloved Mark "no matter what."


But on her wedding day she ^could not have known that "no matter what" would include Mark's years-long struggle ^with alcohol dependency and its resulting turmoil.


Joy recounts her family's ^journey through these troubled times of fighting, disappointment, embarrassment, ^and legal separation. But she and the children never gave up on Mark as they waited ^for his heart to return to them.


Joy is refreshingly candid as she walks ^us through how she parented virtually alone, found employment, learned to share ^her needs with discretion, saw God's provision, and even created happy family times.  ^


Your story might not be similar to Joy's, but you have a friend or a neighbor ^whose loved one is battling an addiction. Hear it from Joy-as well as from Mark ^himself and the couple's children-and never give up.
