I’m happy to announce my blogging friend, Ngina Otiende, has released her new book—Blues to Bliss: Creating Your Happily-ever-after in the Early Years.
I wish I’d had this book before I got married (or shortly after I was married)…it would have hugely impacted my life, and marriage, in a GODLY way!
Our world, and society, view marriage from a vastly different standpoint than God does.
No matter if you grew up with a Christian example of marriage in your home or not, this book is for you because worldly standards for marriage influence us all too some degree.
The first few years of my marriage were rocky for two main reasons:
1. I didn’t have a Biblical understanding of marriage. In fact, I liked to skip over passages of Scripture that dealt with marriage because I didn’t like to think about being “submissive” to my husband. My view of marriage and love was skewed by the world. I felt wives were undervalued in the Bible. This came because I didn’t understand God’s love for me. Therefore I didn’t understand the love a husband and wife have and how our roles are to relate. MY relationship with God was off and this made my relationship with my husband unstable.
2. I wanted my husband to fill a place in my life that only God is meant to fill. I unknowingly placed on my husband a burden he was never meant to carry. He is not my savior and he cannot fill the role of God in my life. Again, MY relationship with God was off and this affected my marriage.
All of this confusion and heartache could have been avoided if I’d read Ngina’s book.
She does an excellent job of helping women realize these truths. Her book aids them in seeing their life with God, and with their husbands, from GOD’s POINT OF VIEW.
Whether you’re looking to be married soon, are a newlywed, or have been married 50+ years, this book has something to offer the Christian woman.
1. A brand new 7-day Devotional for Wives
2. A Love Check List - Scriptures on areas of struggle for earlywed wives.
To get the Devotional and Check List, simply email Ngina your receipt on email@example.com and she will send you information on how to access the gifts.
