Recommends it for: people struggling in their marriage
As you can see, I am recommending this book to the utmost; a perfect score and I am not one to do so often. The reason for that is in my humble opinion, every Christian couple should read this book. I wouldn’t hesitate to give it away, whether before, during or even after a marriage has ended in divorce. If they are remarried already it may be of some help in the subsequent marriage. There will even be some unbelievers who will find hope and healing through this book, though they will need to be ...more

To all outward appearances Jeff and Cheryl had the perfect marriage: intimacy, love and affection. Unfortunately the romance was only skin-deep. Jeff and Cheryl show that it isn't enough just to feel in love, you actually have to choose to be in love, and work on furthering your relationship with the person you’re with. If you don't work on connecting with your partner, and don't speak the same love language, eventually the frustration of emotional emptiness will relentlessly take its toll on yo ...more

For someone struggling to save a marriage for over 4 years, this book helps reaffirm what I think I've already learned - that it is in God's hands, that it is about the individual's journey more than about the marriage, that it takes as long as it takes, that it might not be about saving the marriage, rather about saving yourself, becoming the better version for yourself that God wants you to be.
This book has given me some hope, although the timeline for reconciliation is tough. You have to get

This was an encouraging book that gives a pretty detailed account of their journey apart and back together. I found a lot of truth in it, but a couple minor things didn't seem doctrinely sound to my understanding of scripture. Some sections of the book felt long and others felt rushed through, but overall I'd recommend reading it, especially if you are in a hurting or broken marriage relationship. I love God's redemption of their story and how He continues to use this couple's testimony in count ...more

Loved this book. I think any couple who has dealt with infidelity or knows anyone who has will benefit from this book. The couple who wrote this book are the parents of Lauren Scruggs, the young woman who walked into the plane propeller and lost her eye and left hand. One book led me to another. Christian book. Highly recommend it!

After reading "Still Lolo", about their daughter's accident, I'm interested in hearing more about their divorce and reunification. As a "divorced kid", I'm always skeptical.

If you were in a crisis marriage, it would be a good marriage. We already practice a lot of what they talk about in working on yourself rather than blame.

A true story that I kept reading late into the night like a novel. Really liked it as a great story of hope and reality.

My husband and I read this during a very trying time in our marriage, and it completely opened doors for us and changed our marriage forever.

A well written memoir of a marriage that was broken, then healed. The authors give a brutally honest look into their story, ultimately offering God's hope to any marriage.

This testimony on how God restores and heals is beautiful. All we have to do is believe and seek Him above all things!

Brutally honest and heartbreaking. Made me really stop and think about my own affair and the demise and resurrection of my marriage. Proof that with God, nothing is impossible.

A lot of the Christian stuff was pretty cheesy and hard to swallow but overall a beautiful story of redemption/ resurrection.
