a spirit lifter Apr 24, 2002
This book is absolutely wonderful. It is such a wonderful encourager for married couples. I 've been reading this book since September 2001 and have not finished it yet (now April 2002). This is by choice because I try to savor every bit. In addition to the bible, this book was the only book I was able to read as I was going through the loss of my unborn child. It lifted my spirits, comforted me and encouraged me oh so much as a wife and a mother. This will be the first book that my marriage group will read.
I recommend this book for both spouses to read and reflect.
Praying for a Part II.
Together For Good: Lessons From Fifty-Five Years Of Marriage Nov 14, 2000
In a day when so many social institutions have lost their luster, "Together For Good" provides a sterling testament of the enduring virtue and value of a "vibrant" lifelong commitment. The Mitchell's unique recollection of their more than half century journey together holds forth a hopeful note amidst our hi-tech concerns of alienated households, fragmented families and ruptured relationships (in every regard). It is a highly recommended reading for those who would contemplate the gift of mutual companionship at it's very best!
Thank you Dr's. Ella & Henry Mitchell for this timeless treasure!
Something Practical In Couple Enrichment ... Real SPICE ! Mar 31, 2000
The Mitchells speak straight from their hearts to ours and provide practical help and open honest means for healing the hurts of those of us who are in new or long term relationships. The book is a tender dialogue between them spanning a half century of changes, crises and challenges; reminding us that all of life is indeed dialogue and that something mystical and magical happens in relationships when we truly see, hear and tenaciously embrace the other. Their story is a special gift.
An American Love Story Dec 9, 1999
Henry and Ella Mitchell have given us a beautiful gift: their love story. This book, chronicling their fascinating lives in New York, California, and Atlanta, is a testament to their love of each other, their love of family and friends, and their love of God. It is a tribute to their talents and tenacity in the face of considerable challenges. The format of the book keeps the reader engaged by alternating perspectives from chapter to chapter. Henry and Ella take turns providing their unique perspectives on the adventures they experienced in fifty five years of marriage. Each voice provides a slightly different interpretation of events. Their personalities, different but complementary, are revealed through their words. If you relish love stories and biographies of living saints, this book will thrill you. It provides a testimony to the enduring potential of a relationship grounded in mutual respect, trust, affection, and spirituality.
Together for Good is a good book--read it to your profit Oct 19, 1999
In a world where selfishness is academic and values are ephemeral, the fifty-five years of marriage and ministry shared by Ella and Henry Mitchell is truly a saga of sacred togetherness. Their life together has been both a pilgrimage and prophecy: pilgrimage in the rediness and zeal to sail treacherous or even uncharted waters to find service in God's name wherever the need seemed most compeling. Prohecy as the living affirmation of God's transcendent truth and faithfulness in the face of human incapacity. Henry and Ella have lived with tragedy and overcame it. They have lived with success and survived it. They have been blessed in the blessing of so many lives, and they are rich with nothing beyond each other. No wonder they call the story of their lives Together for Good! Goodness has a way of attracting goodness (and mercy too!) all the days of our lives.
