We All Married Idiots: Three Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage And Ten Things You Can
I found this book to be a great asset to my marriage and personal life. Each time I started a new chapter, I found a gem to encourage me to be a better wife and a better person. Several times it seemed like the Lord was speaking directly to me regarding an aspect of my personal life. For example, one night I was distressed about something, and I read chapter 7 - "Hold On". After Elaine reminded us that the Lord is holding on to us (Isaiah 41:13) - that He's got our back, I was able to be at peace and go to sleep. Thank you, Elaine, for writing this book!

"...Married Idiots" is Full of Wisdom
My husband and I read devotionals every morning and I must admit when I saw this one, I hesitated just a bit. I mean, would my husband think I thought he was an idiot if I gave him this to read? But when I started reading it, I found the title applied to both of us!
I love the way the author, Elaine Miller, uses humorous (and very real) anecdotes to show couples how to get past the hurt and anger in their marriage. It's full of wisdom from the Bible and life lessons. Each day is divided up into five sections: the story, verses for meditation, Miller's interpretation of those verses, how to apply that wisdom through change, and most importantly, a prayer to ask for God's help to make those changes.
This is a book geared towards hurting relationships, but it's also helped our healthy relationship. I can see a real change in my husband's attitude (not that there was a problem with it, but it's actually gotten better) and that's led to a change for the better in my attitude. And it all started with this little book.
I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Elaine Miller, for writing it.
