Description - For Better, for Worse, for God by Mary Jo Pedersen

Make your marriage happier, healthier, and holier. For couples who have been married for more than a few years, daily obligations and packed schedules can cause husbands and wives to sense that they are doing little more than going through the motions of married life. Much attention is focused on caring for children, houses, and checkbooks, but what about caring for the marriage? In this highly accessible and realistic book, marriage-retreat leader Mary Jo Pedersen guides couples through a marriage "check-up" that combines the latest social science research on healthy marriage with the wisdom of the Christian tradition. Throughout For Better, for Worse, for God , Pedersen offers practical steps couples can take to enrich their marriage, such as better communication and conflict resolution; an approach to praying together and experiencing spirituality as a couple; a refreshing view of sexuality; and an invitation to a renewed sense of mission as husband and wife. By engaging couples in a conversation about how faith influences and transforms the experience of married life, Pedersen ultimately shows that marriage is a call from God and that God's continuous presence and grace make it possible to face the ups and downs of life together
