Somewhere beneath the triumphs, tribulations, successes, disappointments, hopes, and hurts of marriage lies the promises we made to our spouse. We promised love, fidelity, respect, through sickness and in health. This book is about one average guy of average means who has struggled to keep those promises and failed on many occasions. It's a glimpse into the heart of a Christian soldier who fights for his marriage with no basic training. To be sure the battle is not flesh and blood but against powers and principalities of a world set against God's purpose for marriage. This book is a journey of self-discovery and a transparent model of what he faces everyday as a husband. Read closely and honestly, and perhaps discover that this book is about you.
