Product Description: Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change Through Ordinary Moments

He snapped at her at breakfast. She brought up a past mistake. He walked out angry. She left without saying good-bye. Just one day in an ordinary marriage. But what if things could be different? What if the ordinary moments of annoyance, conflict, pain, or cold indifference could become moments to understand God’s incredible agenda for love and begin something new? This book offers a simple, yet powerful prescription for changing marriages one ordinary moment at a time. Change begins with understanding how and why small disagreements evolve into major problems, taking practical steps to love one another more effectively, and learning how to take those same steps over and over again. Interactions that used to devolve into pointless annoyances and fights can become opportunities for God’s love to become increasingly evident and powerful. Winston T. Smith takes abstract, biblical principles and applies them to the concrete details of life so that ordinary marriages can become extraordinary. …read more on this page

Best marriage book I’ve ever read, December 15, 2010
By 
Dave J. Jenkins (Nampa, Idaho) – See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)
  
(REAL NAME)
  

This review is from: Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change Through Ordinary Moments (Paperback)
Marriage Matters is written by Dr. Winston Smith a counselor and faculty member at CCEF (Christian Counseling Education Foundation). Having read several books by New Growth Press, the publishing arm of CCEF, I eagerly awaited reading Marriage Matters and it did not disappoint. In fact, this book exceeded my expectation which is something that rarely every happens.

Having read widely on the topic of marriage, I can honestly say Marriage Matters is the one of the best marriage book I have ever read right along with Dr. Paul Tripp’s book, What did you expect?

Marriage Matters is a book that can be used in seminary classrooms, Sunday school class, or read for devotions. I recommend this book not only for married couples but also for singles to learn what a God honoring marriage is.

Typically most marriage books will focus on a few problems with marriages and then seek to offer solutions to those problems by appealing mostly to secular models. Marriage Matters; however, is different from vast majority of marriage books, I have read in that it does not load you down with self-help but rather explains what the Bible teaches on topics related to marriage. Along the way, Mr. Smith offers personal stories and examples from his own marriage which helpfully illustrate the point he is making.

It is not often that I read a book that is not only very well written as this is, but is also written from a biblical-theological framework that brings honor to Christ and accomplishes its intended purpose. Marriage Matters not only accomplishes its goal, but in the view of this reviewer exceeds it. Marriage Matters simply put is one of the best books I have read on marriage ever, as well as one of the best books I have read all year.

Beware of reading Marriage Matters! It will confront the issues of your heart with the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This is a book I will be recommending to all my married and single friends. Whether you are newly married or you’ve been married a long time, I recommend you read this book for the sake of your sanctification individually and for the sanctification of your marriage.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the New Growth Press book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

A Sturdy Book on a True Foundation, February 16, 2013
This review is from: Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change Through Ordinary Moments (Paperback)

Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change through Ordinary Moments.
It is not good grammar to begin a book review with Wow. I need to say it anyway.
Marriage Matters really made sense to me. Written by a Christian Counselor, this book deals with our emotions and behavior in light of Scripture.

Marriage Matters begins with three points for how marriages change to Glorify God.

1. Marriages Change when we recognize God’s agenda for so called ordinary moments.

2. Marriages change when we are willing to love in practical, Christ-like ways even in difficult moments.

3. Marriages change when we’re willing to love consistently, over time, not because our spouses change, but because we’re in a growing relationship with God.

Winston Smith builds a sturdy book (almost 300 pages) upon these ideas.

Our foundation is point 1: understanding God’s agenda for our marriage. We find His plan in Scripture’s definition of marriage. Winston Smith points out that when Paul and Peter write about marriage in the letters, they always focus on Jesus Christ. Seeing the eternal purpose for our marriage girds us with strength to press on in the valley, and heartens us with the vision of what will be in our Marriage to Christ. Our Marriage drives us very close to Christ, making us more like Him, because we can’t live in intimate union with a sinful person until we live in union with our Savior. We cannot love until we know our Lover. The hard times sculpt us into His image.
Our marriage is also evangelism. We show a love starved world the love that God puts in us for our spouse, a love we only have because of God in us.

2. Part two gives us a glimpse of Extraordinary Love in Marriage. This book asks us to search our heart, not just our spouse’s. I need this. I are commanded in Scripture to repent of my own sins and love my neighbor purely. With God I can do this, even when it is very hard.
I can’t create change in my spouse’s heart. I can only live Biblically towards them.
My favorite portion of Marriage Matters is part two, chapters six through fifteen. These chapters dealt with me and the way I treat the other person. This was my favorite part right now, so I will quote from these chapters.

Person or Object? Honor or Manipulation? is the title of chapter six. I never realized just what manipulation is, and how deep it is in my fallen heart, and how quick it crushes a marriage until I read this.
Manipulation is defined as ‘Giving to get.’ Our modern concept of marriage helps us enter marriage ready to manipulate: We call Marriage a Contract. A Contract is an agreement saying “If you do your part I will do mine. I will give if and only if I get. If you don’t perform then no deal, I’m breaking the contract.”

Marriage, Biblically, is a Covenant, not a Contract. Love, Biblically, does not think about how it can Get more before it Gives.
When we look at our spouse through the “Giving to Get” lens, we have conditions in our love. We view them as an object, an obstacle in our way to getting what we want.
We manipulate them instead of honoring them, because honor comes when we know they are God’s, and manipulation comes when we think they are our’s to use.
“Rather than acting out of genuine concern for your spouse, you treat him or her as a means to an end, as a way to get what you want. Instead of serving your spouse, you’re using him or her to serve yourself. You’re treating a person like an object.”

This is convicting. Winston Smith gives us a chart of Attitudes of Honor or Manipulation.
Honor: “God is using you to make me like Him.”
Manipulation: “You are the problem.”
How often are my thoughts about others are manipulating, not honoring!

Chapter seven is Honesty is Important.
We are commanded in Scripture to speak the truth in love. This needs a lot of grace to get right. We have two temptations, to twist truth to appease others, and to be cruelly honest and get stuff off our chest that hurts the hearer.
I love this definition of loving Honesty. “The kind of honesty that reflects God’s Love requires sharing the right information in the right way, a way that leads to oneness and growth.”

Chapter eight takes us into the scary place of Being Honest about Yourself.
It is awful to see a glimpse of our real motives and heart, but essential if we are going to have a Christian Marriage.

Speaking Truth to your Spouse is chapter nine. There is power in words, to hurt and to help. “Even a few well chosen words can provide a compass heading and reorient a couple in danger of losing her way.”
I found myself writing “I want to talk like this.” in the margin of this chapter. The sections on Wholesome Words and Unwholesome Words were excellent.

Chapters Eight and Nine look at Conflict. When I hear conflict I always think…

Finally, a truly God-loving, Gospel-centered, Biblically grounded, and Practial book on marriage, November 23, 2010
This review is from: Marriage Matters: Extraordinary Change Through Ordinary Moments (Paperback)
There are tons of books that claim to help you in your marriage, but this book is truly one of its kind in helping us find a true purpose in marriage (why it matters), and once that purpose is found we can expect mutual support and growth in marriage. This book is amazingly challenging that problems in marriage, “ordinary problems”, rather than just being liabilities of marriage but they can be redeem, in the light of the Gospel, to be assets to help us change for the better if we seize the opportunities to understand what do these problems revealed about us, our hearts, and our relationship with our spouse.

God-loving – marriage is not just an intimate relationship between man and woman loving each other, but both husband and wife loving God together in mutual support, mutual growth, and working towards a God-loving marriage. God is the ultimate care-taker in our lives, even in our marriage!

The author outlines ways to engage and enjoy our marriage, even in conflict-solving, forgiving one another, mutual support, and how to turn our Gospel-centered faith into Gospel-centered lives in our marriage.

Problems are opportunities to understand each other better, help each other, and rely on the redemptive grace of Christ together. This book is a must for all Christians who wants to have a truly Biblical marriage in their lives.

Item is not correctly identified, February 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
I bought what I thought was the hard cover version of the 10th edition and instead received the 4th edition of Human Relations, A Job Oriented Approach. You can see when you click to buy it, the picture is of the 4th edition. Human Relations: Interpersonal Job-Oriented Skills (10th Edition)
This is not the problem of the seller, I think, but of Amazon’s for mislabeling the item. I hope this is corrected as students who may wish to purchase the 10th edition will be mislead.

Product Description: For Her Eyes Only: Rules That Place Common Sense Back Into Dating

Are women insane? Are they really gluttons for punishment? Often left picking up their panties rather than the person they hoped to build a lifetime with, women continuously miss the obvious problem in dating … and according to Shaun Upshaw, it’s NOT men (at least not men alone).

Driven by a guilty conscience, tormented by broken hearts left in his path and a concern for his daughter’s future, Upshaw seeks to balance the dating game by injecting a dose of common sense. He feels it’s the least he can do to repair the damage of the deadly dating schemes practiced by most men.

In a very candid, clear fashion, Shaun brilliantly explains the pitfalls and problems of dating while offering some rules of engagement. This book will cause you to experience a varied array of emotions. You will feel angry, appalled, astonished, broken, used, and down right dumb. So why read this book? Great question…

You will be enlightened and informed. Forced to the crossroad of decisions, you will have to look yourself in the mirror and answer some self-evaluating questions. To date or not to date… If your answer is ‘to date’… you NEED this book. …read more on this page

This review is from: Summary Book: Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man – Steve Harvey (Kindle Edition)
Exactly what the title says "summary" As I hadn’t previously read ‘Act Like a Lady, Think like a Man’ It didn’t really resonate with me as it needed more detail.

However now having read the full version Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man I feel it as a quick reference/Prompt book.
