Publisher's Description

How can we train ourselves to value our spouse?


Overview


It is easy to focus on the aggravations, annoyances, and behaviors that frustrate or anger us in marriage. This can cause us to lose sight of the significant gifts of kindness and service our spouse gives us every day. If our attitude is critical or negative, we will miss much of the joy of married life. Rachael Philips, in her article for MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP, suggests we should learn to appreciate the daily behind-the-scenes good deeds of unsung spouses.


Why is it easier to criticize than encourage our spouse? How does negativity and criticism damage a marriage? How can a heart of appreciation deepen and strengthen a marriage? This study will explore how to train our hearts and minds to be thankful for our spouse.
