I saw this book during a search of works by Dr. James Dobson, we greatly admire this man and his family. But I will do anything in my power to save my marriage. I have read ahead to day 50 in 3 days and going back each morning to the day I’m on and reread and do the dare.
For it is God who works in us, both to will and to work for His good pleasure. Marriage is the beautiful tool God uses to make us holy! Our friends Jeff & Sarah Walton have written on this very subject! Their book is real, and they write from their own experiences sharing how God transforms theirs hearts into His likeness as they go through the storms of life. It’s only a matter of time (Jesus told us this to help us prepare & encourage us!)—and I highly recommend this book to prepare you for them. If you have weathered storms, you understand the challenges of focusing on Christ when everything feels like it is falling apart and the help that a book like this could be.
This is exactly why Adam decided to create The Witness. He has questions and knows that other people do too. When Adam has questions or answers about Christianity, he now researches and posts about it here on TheWitness.org to share with the world. But sometimes when we are standing across from someone , our inclination is to rescue instead of empathizing. We try to stamp out the negative thoughts and create a rosier picture.
However, if you are looking for ideas you could start with the book of Ruth and Song of Solomon. Like most Christians, Adam has questioned his faith at more than one occasion. He doesn’t like to believe something just to believe in something. He likes to ask questions and understand the reasoning behind a belief.
The hard truth is that sometimes we do this not because we solely want the other person to feel better, but because we want to feel better. We want to feel wise or important or in control. Sometimes there are instances when we share a problem and it requires fixing. If the washing machine isn’t working, I’m looking for a solution so that I can resume doing the laundry. If we have two girls that need to be in two different places at the same time, I want a solution so we can all get where we need to go. I don’t need Craig to ask me how I feel about mechanical things breaking or scheduling changes.
Instead, I play a game of Tetris in my head, trying to figure out how to squeeze more in. It is an area I struggle with and this book gave me some great personal insight.

You really can’t go wrong with reading the whole Bible together.
Make it your bold, next step to a lifetime of love. You don’t need a cute journal or the best devotional book, all you really need is each other. When my husband and I decided to approach reading the Bible through together, we decided on a time and opted to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Each night before we went to bed, we read a chapter, reading each verse alternatively. All you really need is a desire to spend time in the word of God, choose a book of the Bible or read chronologically, decide on a time and place and make it a regular habit. The closer you get to God, the closer you grow to each other.
I myself am a christain and naturally I am predispositioned to love it and the effects that the book and living a godly life can have on all your relationships that you have with people. I first watched the movie Flywheel and it was the first movie that this church put out. It was very moving and was made with good christian morals, an excellent movie for a $20,000 filming budget!
