Amazing Grace for Married Couples: 12 Life-Changing Stories of Renewed Love

This remarkable collection portrays the varied experiences of twelve couples whose marriages could never have survived without both spouses having a change of heart. The voices of each husband and wife describe every possible attack against marriage. Situations of affairs among the rich and the poor; addictions to alcohol, drugs, pornography, and gambling, are fascinating in their suspense.

What is so amazing is the way God provided his grace through friends, priests and personal inspiration to give these husbands and wives hope. They came to a point where they must choose to follow their human drives and be miserable, lonely and divorced or accept God’s plan for marriage as a covenant with him that leads to real happiness.

The hard work of rebuilding these marriages sometimes meant changing careers, relocating, downsizing their lifestyle, going against the advice of friends and parents, and periods of separation. Always these sacrifices ultimately brought the couple closer to the Lord and to one another. God’s grace gave them the perseverance to deal with their own emotions, finances, faith crises and with their heartbroken children.

These frank and personal fast-paced stories are affirming to those in fulfilling marriages, helpful to those in mediocre marriages and vital to those in failing marriages. They give hope and real proof that God can work an astonishing revitalization in any marriage with his amazing grace.

    Thanks, Nancy, for the beautiful review. It was so very humbling to work on this book series, being a close witness to so many amazing stories of God’s grace in people’s lives. The books are loved by those who love God, but the best part is that even those not particularly interested in religion, become engrossed in the stories. And in the process, the Holy Spirit slips in and invites people to be a part of that grace.

    • So glad you wrote this series of books that I am finding more inspiring with each new story.
      I’m starting to get addicted to them.
