DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Until Expectations May You Part Giddy with excitement and burning with love’s fire, engaged couples are filled with desires and expectations! Wonder and eager anticipation propel them forward. Then comes the marriage and if they take the wrong approach, those unrealized expectations and unmet wants can turn a life-giving covenant relationship into a dead-end contractual agreement. Suddenly your marriage has no love, joy, or peace. In this marriage-makeover DVD and study guide from Northpoint Resources, Andy Stanley ’s three key teachings help you transform your expectations and examine the “I’s” of marriage: “Keeping My ‘I’ On You,” “Putting Your ‘I’ Out,” and “It Takes Three.” Broken into six DVD sessions with discussion questions, this is one lesson your marriage won’t survive without. Until Expectations Do Us Part Standing at the altar we all had a picture of what our marriage would look like. The problem is this picture of marriage ends up as expectations that we unload on our spouse. The weight of these expectations will rob your marriage of love and joy. As a spouse you never feel like you measure up and you never feel like you are good enough. So what are you to do with your expectations? You can’t deny them because most expectations started out as God-given desires. In this six-session companion study guide to the DVD, Andy Stanley explains that you must instead learn to transform your expectations and look to God if you are to experience marriage as it was designed. This study guide is complete with a leader’s guide and six lessons including conversation-starting exercises, discussion questions and application steps. Story Behind the Book Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand. As couples voiced their various marital struggles to him, the common root problem became undeniably clear. The “me” syndrome, or the “I” effect, was tearing apart husbands and wives who were once head-over-heels in love. To help couples step back from their immediate circumstances and realize the bigger picture, he preached a series called “iMarriage.” This DVD and study guide will empower couples everywhere to transform their marriages into the one God intends for them.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

A twisty new thriller from the acclaimed author of The House Swap. After the death of his first wife, Alex has been given a second lease on life with Natalie, to whom he is newly married. Living in Brighton with Alex's thirteen-year-old daughter, Jade, the couple seem to be made for one another. But their idyllic domestic calm is soon shattered when Alex returns home one night to find that Jade and Natalie have narrowly escaped from a devastating house fire. Hospitalized and traumatized, Jade insists that she saw a man in their house on that fateful night, though Natalie resolutely disagrees. In the wake of the fire, Natalie finally confides in Alex about a past that she has always kept hidden: eighteen years ago, she testified as a witness in a murder trial involving her reckless and defiant sister, Sadie, whose infatuation with a local gang leader, Kas, led her badly astray. Natalie was placed under witness protection and given a new identity; she has worked hard to build another life, but now it seems the past is catching up to her. And as Alex struggles to understand what really happened between the two sisters years ago, he is forced to recognize that his wife's actions are now putting his family at risk--and that perhaps he is more deeply involved than he ever realized.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Do you wish you could beat the odds and have a thriving second marriage? While research shows that 67% of second marriages fail, Chris and Denise believe that there is hope to flip that statistic on its head. Through their own experience, they have learned valuable lessons about creating a relationship that not only exemplifies a vibrant partnership after divorce, but one that is even better the second time around. In this book, the Wideners will unpack their core values and philosophies, share practical tools, and tell real-life examples of fostering a healthy, thriving second marriage. Some of the topics that will be covered are: How to heal from past relationships so you don’t bring baggage into this one Picking the right mate Navigating step-children and exes Tackling the issue of money Effective communication and listening tools Meeting each other’s needs How to handle conflict Sex While much of this book is aimed at couples who are entering a second marriage, at its core, Chris and Denise believe this is simply a book about marriage. Whether you are newly divorced, widowed, beginning to date again or merely wanting to read more about communication and compromise, you’ve found the right resource. Learn from a couple who have experienced redemption and restoration in a second marriage, and truly know that it can be a gift that is far greater than any you’ve been given thus far.

#1 New York Times bestselling authors and renowned psychologists Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott share the single most important secret to happy relationships. Relationships are rife with disappointment--but they are also the primary source of personal happiness. So it is no surprise that the number one question Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott hear over and over is, What's the single most important thing you can do for your relationships? After over twenty-five years of researching, writing, and speaking on this subject, in Healthy Me, Healthy Us the Parrotts have whittled down their answer to the truth contained in this single sentence: if you try to build intimacy with another person before you have gotten whole on your own, all your relationships become an attempt to complete yourself.

But meaningful relationships--the kind we all long for--grow from something deeper, something stronger, something that has more to do with being than doing. This groundbreaking book provides the three hallmarks to psychological, emotional, and spiritual health, pointing the way to true and lasting wholeness that can revolutionize every relationship you attempt to build.

“Powerfully magnetic. . . . In the lineage of great works by Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. . . . A thoroughly contemporary—and deeply moving—portrait of a marriage.” —The New York Times Book Review Ilesa, Nigeria. Ever since they first met and fell in love at university, Yejide and Akin have agreed: polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage—after consulting fertility doctors and healers, and trying strange teas and unlikely cures—Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time—until her in-laws arrive on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin’s second wife. Furious, shocked, and livid with jealousy, Yejide knows the only way to save her marriage is to get pregnant. Which, finally, she does—but at a cost far greater than she could have dared to imagine. The unforgettable story of a marriage as seen through the eyes of both husband and wife, Stay With Me asks how much we can sacrifice for the sake of family.
