This book is much much better than you might expect. Ever since I bought this, I've been eager to read it to gain wisdom on singleness, marriage, and my relationship the Lord. This is exactly what I needed before I get engaged, and it also improves my expectations in my relationship currently. This book would prepare any girl's heart in whatever situation she is in. It's mainly about realizing God's desire to be in our lives and His unfailing love for us (& this is far more fulfilling than any man's love). Once we have the right foundations and expectations, we are more whole individuals with better understanding of how men will play into our hearts and lives. The author speaks with such wisdom and a heart for the Lord, and she also pulls from other women's life experiences. Her love for the Lord and the presence of God on this book has impacted my life already. I want to buy this book for every single one of my friends, whether married or single.
Is your idea of marriage framed by movies, popular romance novels or your own idealistic fantasies? Would you know what will remain of your marriage after the honeymoon is over? Is the knowledge of a biblical marriage included in your Wedding Planner notebook?In Jerusha Clarks new book When I Get Married: Surrendering the Fantasy, Embracing the Reality, the tone is set in Chapter One with these words from IsaiahDo not fear, for I have redeemed you:I have called you by name, you are Mine!You are precious in My sightYou are honored and I love youFor the mountains may be removedand the hills may shake,But My Lovingkindness will not be removed from you,And My covenant of peace will not be shaken. Isaiah 43:1,4; 54:10, NASBDrawing from biblical principles and written with a personable, conversational ease, this book takes the reader through ten misconceptions about marriage provoking the reader from abstract fantasies to the far better genuine reality if approached as God intended.Each chapter is filled with citations from other highly recommended books on marriage, offering the reader direction should they want to pursue the Truths the author presents.Marriage is the second most important decision in a womans life (the first being her salvation) and Jerusha Clark addresses 10 ideas in the light of scripture. 1. Ill Always Feel Loved 2. Ill Feel Whole, Complete, and Satisfied 3. I Wont Feel Lonely Anymore 4. Life will Be So Much Better 5. I Wont Have to Worry About Money 6. Ill know What to Do with the Rest of My Life 7. Sex Wont be an Issue Anymore 8. Ill Feel Pretty (and Witty and Bright) 9. Ill Have a Happy Family 10. It Will Be ForeverThis is a wonderful resource for the woman who is not afraid of Truth, who truly wants a successful marriage, and is willing to walk through the scriptures to establish her home.
Jerusha Clark has written yet another great book. Filled with practical advice, compassion, and godly wisdom, this book is a wonderful resource for all women everywhere. Jerusha's writing is clear, direct, and warm. As a single woman, I have read a LOT of books on marriage and relationships, but none have ever dealt with tackling the myths that this book so clearly identifies and refutes. I appreciate the Scriptural truths Jerusha uses to dissect these lies. I feel like I now have a better, more realistic, and godlier view of marriage. I highly recommend this book!
