Item description for 10 Lifesaving Principles for Women in Difficult Marriages by Karla Downing...

Overview
A Christian woman in a difficult marriage rarely knows where to turn for help. Too often, the advice of those in the church is to love your husband, submit, pray, and wait for God to change him. If that doesn't work, she begins to wonder why God doesn't answer her prayers.

This book helps women overcome their sense of powerlessness by giving them tools to improve their marriage. It examines misconceptions about Scriptures that cause confusion and even pain, helping women recover their faith that God cares for them. Women will begin to focus on what they can do to change themselves, instead of trying over and over again to change their husbands. As they learn to set boundaries with their husbands, they will protect themselves and their children from the effects of the difficult marriage. One day at a time, their lives will begin to change and heal as they apply the information, insights, and principles to their individual situation.

10 Lifesaving Principles helps women:
Reexamine their ideas about certain Christian scriptures and principles (for example, submission)

Develop a support system of family, friends, and other women facing the same problems.

Set boundaries with their husbands to protect themselves and their children from the effects of the difficult marriage

Life Changing, Marriage Saving Book!  Jul 8, 2004
There's not much I can add about the content of this book that hasn't been described already. I do want to say that this book was life changing for me. I'm sure that I would have given up on my marriage by now if it wasn't for the author's wisdom and experience that make up this wonderful book. I don't spend ALL my energy and time thinking that I can change my spouse. By applying the common sense advice that Karla dishes out and other principles in this book; my marriage has done a 180 degree turnaround.

I was lucky enough to meet Karla last week at a convention in Atlanta. It was thrilling to be able to personally let her know how much her book changed my life for the better. If you are at all thinking of buying this book, don't hesitate - it is without a doubt worth the money!

 
Honest and helpful  Feb 12, 2004
It was nice to read the advice in this book from someone having lived it. Karla Downing is honest without being too specific about her own trials in her marriage, so that the book can be applied to a variety of situations. Short, simple, and broad spectrum. I loved her chapter re: setting boundaries. If nothing else, this book made me feel that there are others like me out there, alone and hurting, suffering and silent, embarrased and ashamed. Gave me some tools I needed to detach from the situation at hand. Would definitely recommend for anyone in a marriage marked by addiction, financial irresponsibility, and hardship. The marriage may not change, but through Christ, YOU can.
 
A must buy  Aug 7, 2003
An extraordinary enlightening honest look at many of today's marriages and the problems most people refuse to address until they become critical issues. Not only a book for women
experiencing the situation but also for men who really want to understand how women think and react to life altering events in their marriages. A down to earth manual for the Christian and non-
Christian. After you finish this book you will use it again and again as a reference manual. Vivid instruction to both men and women on how to begin a respectful dialogue and conflict resolution for many of life's tough issues. You can relate that the author has walked the walk and is just not talking the talk. Two thumbs up
 
Hope for Christian Women in Difficult Marriages  Aug 6, 2003
There is no other book that I know of that deals with these issues. It gives practical, sound, and helpful advice for women, specifically Christian women, in difficult marriages. The author talks about the problems women face and how to deal with their spouses in a loving way, yet not get walked on or become a doormat in the process. This book will help you to learn new ways to communicate better with your spouse, face your fears about your marriage, and how to take care of yourself emotionally, physically, and spiritually. I am only touching on a small portion of what this book has to offer for women in difficult marriages. If you are a woman mourning the loss of what you thought your marriage would or should be, this book is for you. The author also gives many examples throughout the book about what other women in difficult marriages have gone through and how they have overcome their marriage problems. The author talks about accountability for one's own actions and is NOT a book about male bashing. The book will help you to learn how and when to stand up for what's right around people who don't respect you. The author talks about respecting yourself so that your spouse will, too. Again, this book gives practical, common-sense-type advice on how to deal with a difficult marriage. The author writes in a direct way and get's right to the point, not flowery at all. This book will pull you out of the mud and you will no longer be stuck!
