Review: Marriage His Way: No Limit to What Two Can Do! by:Norma Washington/Ben Washington
About the Book:
"A powerful marriage starts with an empowered YOU"! This remarkable couple came on one accord to write Marriage HIS Way: No Limit To What Two Can Do as their way of sharing the experiences and principles that has caused their marriage to withstand the inevitable trials that life presents. They believe that regardless of how you start or what has taken place any marriage has the capacity to go beyond just surviving to thriving with love as the foundation!
When each person understands their responsibility and is willing to do what is necessary to have a successful marriage it can't fail; also knowing that we must set our own standard of success and not look to the "Jones" for validation. There are many self-help books on marriage, marriage seminars and marriage conferences along with an array of marriage coaches today that claim to have all the answers on how to have a successful marriage relationship; but unfortunately much of this information or advice is nothing more than recycled cliche.
About the Authors:
Ben and Norma Washington bring much wisdom, knowledge and "empowerment principles" to the marriage conversation via a resume that includes 30 years of marriage and 20 years of ministry. Their loving marriage and successful co-laboring in ministry has served through the years as an example for couples that with "God all things are possible"! In addition to being the Founders and Senior Pastors of Walk By Faith Empowerment Center located in Maricopa, AZ they are the proud parents of 3 children and 5 grandsons.
The foundation of marriage is set forth in the Bible, it is a marriage that is to include God and has been from the very beginning. The authors have set to work on this book to provide us with some deep in site from 30 years of marriage and 20 years of walking together in ministry. The book has scripture at its base and all of the principals they have lived by are Biblically sound. For your marriage to succeed it is a MUST that God be at its center. After this is established you must be able to accept that God loves you and therefore you will need to love yourself, before you will ever be able to accept another persons faults& love and grant them grace just as He has done for you.
As long as both individuals in the marriage are in it for the long haul it will succeed especially if God is walking through it with them. To grow in your relationship with Him, a re-birthing will have to take place many times over in order to get the biggest fulfillment that He has for you. This book is a good book to instill some Biblical principles to live by for a very sustainable marriage.
