This book was not intended to be written. It began as a single email from a woman who was reading my book, The God Empowered Wife, and grew to include our correspondence over several years. Normally we might have commented in person or by phone, but separated by 12,000niles (a 30-hour plane ride) and 13 time zones, we did so almost exclusively by email. Afterward, I realized we had unintentionally created a written documentation of one woman's struggle to understand God's truth that we can no more sanctify ourselves than we can save ourselves.
When Maura introduced herself via email, she said her husband had left a note on their bed saying he was done with the marriage and moved out. He had moved back in--to a separate bedroom--for convenience, and she was trying to find a way to live in the same house while he was pursuing divorce. They were a blended family, with adult children, and loyalties created more tension. Follow along as Maura learns how to apply the biblical concepts in The God Empowered Wife and "Discerning Idols" to her life and marriage, watch her struggle, and celebrate with her as she experiences God's faithfulness in all situations.
