Together Through The Storms HBBy: Jeff & Sarah Walton
|Publisher||The Good Book Company|
This devotional helps married couples to navigate the storms of life together. Working through the book of Job, Sarah Walton (author of "Hope when it Hurts") and her husband Jeff reflect on their own experiences in a marriage that has faced chronic illness, past baggage, a child with neurological challenges, and financial difficulties; and show how to cling to Christ and each other.
This is not a "how to" guide on having the best marriage, but, rather, a walk alongside you and your spouse, sharing the realities of suffering and the effects it can have on a marriage. It is an encouragement to lift your eyes above your trials, off your spouse, and onto our all-sufficient Saviour.
Sarah and Jeff are writing while life is still hard, and they talk about your storms. The only problem is this: you will not be able to give this book to your friends because you and your spouse will keep going back to the prayers at the end of each chapter. If couples pray those prayers together, they will be transformed.
Marriage is a wonderful gift from God, but it can be a place of excruciating pain. Jeff and Sarah know what it is to find hope in the midst of heartache. The fruit of this hope is found in this extremely helpful book. In an honest, sensitive and biblically faithful way, they encourage us to find courage in God. Sooner or later you will face trials. This book will help you to put your faith in the right place.
Jeff and Sarah know what it is to live life under seemingly constant pressure. In this book they apply hard-won insights and biblical wisdom that will encourage you to cling a little tighter, not just to one another but ultimately to Christ. Reading it was a blessing—there was plenty of underlining going on!
Offers sound scriptural wisdom for persevering through the hard things that come to every marriage at some point in the real world. Jeff and Sarah winsomely encourage couples to set a course for long-term joy in spite of sorrow, longterm contentment in spite of disappointment, and longterm hope in anticipation of ultimate restoration.
Fresh, insightful, and engaging. While still in the trenches, Jeff and Sarah have found hope and togetherness where others have been overwhelmed by division and despair. This book will help you to see what’s possible when two people facing troubles sincerely seek the help of Christ.
