Item description for Alone in Marriage: Encouragement for the Times When It's All Up to You by Susie Larson...
Overview Women discover how anger and anxiety will slow them down and how loneliness and disappointment can refine and bless them, in a guide for women who are carrying the weight of their marriage. Original.
Books abound for those whose marriages are crumbling or have ended. But what about those marriages committed "'til death do us part" and yet are going through a period of time when one spouse is carrying the burden? What happens to a woman when marriage gets heavy and she gets weary? Often, when a woman ends up carrying the weight of the marriage (due to her husband's health, choices, workload, etc.), her tendency is to "get out or check out." She may consider her husband's distraction an opportunity to do her own thing. But is there a better way to walk through this season? Even thrive? Susie Larson stands in as an encouraging friend, walking with you, helping you to discern how anxiety and anger will slow you down; and how loneliness and disappointment can actually refine and bless you. You will be challenged and inspired as you wrap your arms around this time and remember that God has His arms around you.

This book speaks encouragement Jul 15, 2009
This Author gently encouraged me and sometimes convicted me to Greater truths in marriage. Reaffirming my concerns and also God's plan for marriage. I appreciated Susie's honesty in this great book.
Incredible book for a woman's walk with the Lord May 5, 2009
I was given this book when my marriage fell apart and it was all up to God to bring my husband back around and save my marriage. I was devastated but when I picked up this book and started reading about my Lord and the different attitudes and qualities I should let go of and hold on to I started to see myself life change. Susie's book is an incredible source of comfort and encouragement. She is practical too-I was able to put those aspects into practice right away and really saw the Lord use her book to put me back on my feet again and restore my relationship with God. The verses are the best part! I still read them and memorize them and use them to fight my battle of identity and self-worth. My marriage is still obsolete and I am now waiting for the Lord to bring my husband back but I am able to live a joy-filled life as I wait. I highly reccomend this book to any woman wanting a strong relationship with the Lord.
my daughter's words Apr 10, 2008
My daughter Sarah told me that Susie Larson's book changed her life and her marriage in such a positive way that she recommends the book to anyone who is married. She said the book shifts the focus from, what can he do for me, to what can I do to change me. It made her see how grateful she needed to be and appreciative of what she has been given. Their marriage is even better for taking this great book to heart. Thank you Susie, From a grateful father
You're not alone Apr 9, 2008
Susie Larson's message is true: Even though marriages may go through times of one-sidedness, we are never truly alone. God knows and sees and cares. And as one who has seen the healing of my own parents' marriage, I agree that enduring through the hard season and using the time to work on one's self are important steps to healing. Through focusing on God's Word and rejecting the world's view, an enduring marriage can come full circle to a satisfying one. Thank you for stating the truth, even when it's sometimes not the most popular view.
