Publisher's Description

Books abound for those whose marriages are crumbling or have ended.  But what about those marriages committed "'til death do us part" and yet are going through a period of time when one spouse is carrying the burden?  What happens to a woman when marriage gets heavy and she gets weary?  Often, when a woman ends up carrying the weight of the marriage (due to her husband's health, choices, workload, etc.), her tendency is to "get out or check out."  She may consider her husband's distraction an opportunity to do her own thing.  But is there a better way to walk through this season?  Even thrive?

Susie Larson stands in as an encouraging friend, walking with you, helping you to discern how anxiety and anger will slow you down; and how loneliness and disappointment can actually refine and bless you.  You will be challenged and inspired as you wrap your arms around this time and remember that God has His arms around you.

    Well written and thought out. Each chapter has three or four bible study questions to really challenge the reader to greater understanding of God's view of their situation and themselves. Really a very good book.

    As with every book there are chapters that are good then there are chapters that really speak to us. As I continue reading this book I like it more and more. The words are very tiny and especially the letters included in the chapters are very light print and difficult to read. But, what is written is what is important and I have already recommended this book to a couple of people. I've not finished it, but don't think it's going to let me down now. Sheila

Author/Artist Review

Author: Susie Larson
Located in: Minnesota
Submitted: February 04, 2008

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am an author, national speaker, and a freelance writer for Focus on the Family. My husband Kevin and I, along with recording artist Sara Groves, and her husband Troy, are co-chairs for the International Justice Mission fund raising banquet in Minnesota. IJM, among other things, rescues young girls from the horrific life of human trafficking. A portion of this book's sales goes to IJM.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I speak regularly at women's retreats and conferences and many women have told me that they are worn down from feeling alone in marriage, so much so, that the thought of reading another "how to" marriage book simply made them tired. I wanted to write a book just for them. This book addresses the spiritual journey of the woman walking through a one-sided season in marriage. Most who have been married a certain length of time have endured a season or two where marriage has been lopsided. This happens to both husbands and wives, but this particular book is written for women. My prayer is that women will be nourished and strengthened amidst a trying time in marriage. I've received emails from women letting me know how deeply this book has impacted them, and for that, I'm so very grateful.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  After interviewing many women in one sided situations, no matter if their husband's are in seminary or living in sin, I found that certain issues surfaced across the board. In the first section, I addressed how anger, fear, worry, and self-pity are "unnecessary weights" that will only slow us down and make the journey miserable. In the second section, I address how loneliness, disappointing, waiting, and imperfection are actually "weights" that can refine us, if we carry them differently. And finally in the last section, I acknowledge the weight of our words, our perspective, and our prayers. Since we are so important to God, it matters that we pray, how we talk about this season, and how we choose to look at this journey. God is faithful and He wants to be BIG in us!

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  This book was difficult for me to write because my husband has carried me more miles than I've carried him. But I've also endured a number of my own one-sided seasons because of my husband's tendency towards workaholism. I gleaned a lot from my sample readers who were alone in marriage due to their husbands' sickness, depression, deployment, work load, etc., etc. What I found is that no matter the reason behind the season, it is utterly possible to grow spiritually and thrive during the most trying of times.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I love Andrew Murray, A.W. Tozer, Catherine Marshall, Graham Cooke, and Bruce Wilkenson. Of course I love Sara Groves (her new album is inspired by the work of IJM). I love Lincoln Brewster, Chris Tomlin, and Selah.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  My next book, "The Uncommon Woman: Making an Ordinary Life Extraordinary" releases this summer (July, '08). This book addresses our identity as women, how we relate to other women (and our tendency towards gossip, pettiness, and the challenge to take the higher road), and our individual call to make a huge impact in our world. This book is excellent for both adult and college age women. Watch for it! God bless you~
