Great marriages don't just happen--they're made, intentionally, day by day. Yet most of us enter the covenant of marriage thinking that the role of spouse will be easy, natural, effortless. Rarely is this true. In fact, the number one cause of divorce isn't adultery or finances or disagreements. It's apathy--a lack of intentional emotional, physical, and mental investment in the relationship. With engaging stories and clear, simple language, pastor Kevin A. Thompson explains the three critical roles of a spouse--friend, partner, and lover--and shows how to nurture those roles in order to keep a marriage healthy and strong. Using solid biblical principles, he helps couples understand how to grow their friendship, be a supportive partner through the good times and the bad, and develop a healthy and satisfying sex life. Friends, Partners, and Lovers offers essential insight for couples at any stage of marriage but will be especially helpful to those who are struggling and those who are engaged or newly married and looking to start their marriage on strong footing.

Genre: Self-Help

Sometimes, love comes when one least expects. Caught unaware, he or she often stumbles on the things to say or do. Many can't find the words to say to their significant other or person of interest because of fear. Author Samuel Bradley remedies this problem by providing A Lover's Guide to Happiness to help keep the flame of love alive. There is a difference between love and infatuation or lust. Everyone wants love, but not everyone can love. Love is not of the flesh but of the spiritual being within the soul of the human heart. Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud. Thus, when one grasps true love, he must hold on to it and nurture it. How one goes about winning true love varies, with some needing more help than others. A guide can greatly improve one's chances. A Lover's Guide to Happiness opens the pathway to forever happiness if used properly. If a person desires to be in love with his partner and cherish them until death do they part, then this book will help him. Filled with sweet passages, notes, messages, and letters, it can help readers gain confidence in expressing themselves to their significant other. At the same time, it can increase understanding between both partners, thereby strengthening their bond and laying a solid foundation for their love. This book is a lover's paradise, a leap of faith for those in denial of love lost through selfish passion and endless tyranny. It allows the words the heart has craved to speak to break free little by little through love potions, until the words can fall freely and sweetly from the lips.

Damit man seine Energie für sinnvolleres verwendet als für Dinge, die einem egal sein können.

The Ex Wives Guide to Divorce

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.
ISBN: 9781510704077
Release Date: 2016-08-16
Genre: Self-Help

Witnessing a woman go through divorce is like watching a tornado tear up a trailer park. Not only is someone losing their home and life as they know it, but for most women, it seems to go down with some extra drama thrown in the mix. This is where the advice of authors, Holiday Miller and Valerie Shepherd, two experts in all things divorce, comes in handy. Their unique friendship began after they had both married and divorced the same man! The Ex Wives’ Guide to Divorce was born from this friendship with the goal to ease women’s fears, save them money, and give them a road map of what lies ahead. It will motivate women to get their head out of the sand and build their future dream sand castle by themselves, sans Prince Charming. Divorce is painful, heartbreaking, and pretty miserable for everyone involved. While men tend to champion the process, most women collapse and become emotionally distracted. Miller and Shepherd’s experience is while the husband is gathering ammunition with his high paid attorney; the wife is frantic and disorganized—most likely spending her energy on the phone with her best friend or sister, instead of preparing herself for the battle ahead. This helpful guide teaches women how to manage the “business of divorce” in a focused, realistic, and organized manner. Miller and Shepherd aren’t lawyers or psychologists, but they’ve experienced the process first hand and offer advice on how to build a support system and come out ahead. This book charges women to “put their big girl panties on” and maintain a tenacious spirit while preparing and organizing for their divorce.
