How do you keep your vow to love and honor your husband when he chooses to abandon his family and indulge his addiction? McClain lived with that question for 20 years. Join her as she learns to place her hope in Christ alone and discovers that God's grace is sufficient to reach even the most hardened heart.
God tells us to love our enemies. But what about loving and honoring a husband who chooses to walk away from his family, setting up residence in a prison of addiction? Seldom is there a faith with the tenacity that the author displayed during her twenty-two years of praying, enduring tremendous trials and sorrow.
"I will honor my vow, no matter what," were words spoken by this young bride, believing in the promise of new life and vows spoken. The "no matter what" took this family on such a seemingly discouraging journey that even Christian family and friends believed restoration was impossible. Joy learned to place her complete hope in Christ alone, believing that God's mercy and grace is sufficient to reach even the darkest and most hardened heart - including her own.A beautiful, transparent portrait of redemption as marriage is viewed as a living, breathing example of Christ and His bride. Readers will be encouraged and equipped to persevere through deep marital waters.
