Description

Will the next crisis your marriage faces be its final hour--or its finest hour?

A child struggling with addiction. An aging parent who suffers a stroke. The loss of a job. The death of a loved one. A debilitating illness in your immediate family.

In times like those, you and your spouse need each other more than ever--and yet those are precisely the times that too many couples find themselves driven apart, unable to communicate. Choose instead to strengthen your marriage even when your world starts to crumble. Staying Power, written by two longtime couples who have faced numerous crises themselves, can help you learn to

· handle anger creatively, forgive freely, and persevere together
· nurture one another in powerful ways
· use new techniques for connecting both verbally and nonverbally in the midst of crises
· and much more

Even if they hit at your moment of greatest vulnerability, the crises that have destroyed so many marriages don't have to destroy yours.


"For any couple going through life's most difficult trials, this is the read you need right now. You won't find wiser, more compassionate friends than Carol, Gene, Cindy, and Dave. Their sound, biblical direction will help you and your marriage partner press through the hard times and emerge stronger than ever."--Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
