Note: This is a deeply spiritual book, written for those who seek God's strength and guidance in their lives through Jesus Christ. Reader reviews have shown that this book is a uniquely valuable treasure for believers, but it disappoints those who are not. We state this emphatically so you understand the nature of this book before you read it.

Would you like to be strengthened in Christ, reduce your fear and resentment, clarify the lines between what you can control and what you cannot, and start feeling like yourself again? Do you know how to protect yourself and know when you should consider separation, at least temporarily?

Discover why BlueInk Reviews awarded a starred review, calling it "An invaluable resource . . . For Christians dealing with the challenges of mental illness in their spouse, this is a must-read".

This is not a book designed to diagnose your spouse's condition or help you change your spouse. Many try to change their spouses in vain--whether through force or kind and patient pressure--but these only increase the storms in their marriages and the pain in their hearts (a phenomenon known as codependency). Pamper yourself by focusing on YOU, and your needs, and your self-care, so you can be stronger and more present as you face your marital challenges.
