I like the saying, “Adversity introduces us to ourselves.”

Ok so in all honesty I sort of get it…

I struggle all the time wondering if marriage is part of God’s plan for my life. Sometimes I think it is, sometimes I think it isn’t. (which lets be honest…I am probably thinking too much!)

There is a freedom for the husband when he realizes the Lord is head of the home and surrenders to His obedience. Also for the wife …it brings it all together…unconditional love.

And I just want to say that it is so helpful for us writers to see what lines resonated with the reader, so thank you for faithfully encouraging us in this way.

And then you gave us this gem: “I can only imagine how having Christ as the true head of the body helps a man in his heavy responsibility to lead.” It’s only by Christ that I figure I can carry out any responsibility. Without him, I’d just be stumbling along blindly as a husband because – in the eternal scheme of things – even the best of marriages are nothing without Jesus.

Thanks for another great book-thought, Aimee.

Tim

P.S. This line at the beginning almost stopped me in my tracks: “dorky distractions that plague my mind on a regular basis.” Seriously, Aimee, that happens to me all the time!

Girls Gone Wise is a great book for single women and teenage girls. Also, Tim Challie’s Sexual Detox for the guys. And my husband and I are enjoying reading Tim Keller’s The Meaning of Marriage together. He has many singles in his church and has them in mind for readership.

I’ll need to check this one out. As a pastor who works to get couples to think about marriage before they’re married I’m always on the look out for “short little books” that provide solid Christian teaching on marriage.
