The Emotionally Destructive Marriage: How to Find Your Voice and Reclaim Your Hope
January 16, 2015
I know too many Christian women who are living with a lot of abuse and have no where to turn. This book shows that there is someone who understands. Leslie shows women that are being treated wrongly by their husbands that there are answers and help. It's not just a book on sympathy, it's a book with real answers about how to change your situation. It is written with a Biblical perspective, which is so important for the Christian women.
I can't recommend this book highly enough... Leslie has hit the proverbial nail on the head with her advice and approach. This is a desperately needed book for women who have long been suffering in silence in their difficult and/or destructive marriages.

Leslie Vernick has written an excellent book to help women see if they are in an emotionally destructive marriage. A quiz is given to help women determine exactly where their marriage stands. Tips are provided to help women to change in healthy ways, to gain the skills they need, and to stay safe. Each chapter offers a prayer and an action step for the women to take. Leslie has been counseling individuals, couples, and families for over 30 years, and this book truly shows women how to set boundaries and break free from emotionally destructive relationships. I recommend this book for anyone in an potentially unhealthy marriage or relationship.
The Emotionally Destructive Marriage: How To Find Your Voice And Reclaim Your Hope, written by Leslie Vernick is a book designed to guide its readers into understanding the current state of their marriage and the possibilities that lie ahead.
Dividing this book into three sections: Seeing Your Marriage Clearly, Change Begins With You and Initiating Changes In Your Marriage, Leslie offers great insight and understanding into the glorious journey called marriage.
The three sections of this publication are divided in such a way that they offer a great pathway to understanding the current state of any marriage relationship. Readers will learn what it means to be in a destructive marriage, what a healthy marriage looks like, essential ingredients to a healthy marriage, and how to initiate change within your marriage.
This book contains information that can be utilized to change many marriages, and for that reason, it is a recommended read by those walking a rocky marriage path or those trying to guide others upon said path.
