JoanieGilbert, MNAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5January 11, 2011JoanieGilbert, MNAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I intend to use this resource with a married couple who are struggling in their marriage. I will mentor the woman and a man will mentor the husband with each week of the follow up questions. I am reading this before using it which is my normal approach to new materials. Upon looking this over I am learning things about my own life and how I deal with relationships. I am a recent widow and know that God is opening my eyes to alot of my strengths and weaknesses through this book. I would highly reccommend it for anyone who would like to understand more fully why they act the way they do toward those who are significant in their lives. I'm looking forward to using this material fully. Thank you for making this excellent book available.

I am currently separated from my husband, not by my choosing. This book helped me get through some of the rough patches. Loved it so much I have lent it to a friend who is having some problems. Thank you for sharing your whole marriage.
Anny5 Stars Out Of 5August 23, 2010AnnyI have read many, many, many books on marriage, relationships, etc. and nothing compares to it!!! Even though all of the other books are great; they do not compare to the strength and encouragement I have received while reading this daily. This book provides encouragement, hope, and faith for any marriage, regardless of how hopeless it may seem! This book will provide strength on your daily walk with the Lord so that you can feel his prescence in the midst of the storm!
Marie5 Stars Out Of 5May 26, 2010MarieMy husband left a few months and told me recently he was going to file for divorce. I thought "that's it!" Tired on working on this all alone. I'm throwing the towel!" But a friend heard of this book and made me order it. I thought "Alright but this is the very LAST book I read on relationships..." I ordered the book and went on to get it just to honor the bookstore owner. Then I didn't want to read it, didn't want to waste any more time. I even called the authors to make sure this book was for me and left them a long and pathetic message. After all that I finally started on the book... And had great breakthroughs in my spirit. I was amazed at the insights. I was still reading chapter 9 when Michelle returned my call. She gave me great encouragement. I can say that this is the book that has most helped me this year (after my bible).

Tell us a little about yourself. We have been married since 1982, and have 5 children and 11 grandchildren--his, hers, and ours. We have been serving in the ministry of reconciling troubled marriages since 1991. We spend most of our time creating resources, equipping churches to do Marriage 911 ministries, and with family.
What was your motivation behind this project? We were separated, as Christian, for 2-years. After we reconciled in 1989, people kept asking us how we were able to get through our marriage crisis. In 1991 our pastor asked if we could help others in our church who were struggling. That led to our self-published workbook, "Reconciling God's Way" (now titled Marriage 11)and eventually to a full blown ministry and our current book, Yes, Your Marriage Can Be Saved.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book tells our story, as well as the story of other couples and individuals who have tried to save a marriage in crisis--especially with an unwilling spouse. Many couples were successful and some were not. The tools in this book work either way.Yes, Your Marriage CAN be saved!
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? We began interviewing many couples that we knew,but we also wanted to find couples that had amazing stories of reconciliation that we didn't know previously. The Lord led us to many couples, but one in particular, who we are now good friends with, which we ended up speaking with at national conferences!
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Many years ago, when we were writing our fist workbook to help couples in our church, I (Michelle) met author Pam Farrel and she encouraged me to finish the workbook, keep writing, and stay in the fight. If it weren't for Pam (who also told me I had to get email!)I really don't think Joe and I would be in ministry today.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Ministry isn't easy. Marriage isn't easy. Life is sometimes so difficult that you wonder how you can get through another day. But, when you serve the Lord with the gifts and talents He has given you, and when you let Him fill you with a peace and joy that surpasses all understanding, life can be amazingly exciting. Our favorite verse as a couple is: "...Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world" John 16:33 NLT.
