Married for Five Minutes: Hope for Living Inside Real-Life Marriages

Married for Five Minutes: Hope for Living Inside Real-Life Marriages

A husband who won’t work. In-laws who let a nine-year-old watch inappropriate movies. A wife who’s been dishonest in bed.

Take a 5-minute peek inside real marriages facing challenges that threaten to blur the reflection of Christ that marriage was created to be. Bestselling fiction author Michelle Stimpson teams up with Shundria Riddick, a licensed therapist, to tackle issues rarely discussed but frequently experienced—even in Christian marriages.

Each chapter paints a fictionalized behind-the-scenes picture of scenarios the authors have encountered through mentoring/counseling women, followed by biblically and professionally sound commentary. Readers will be encouraged to know that all marriages have tough seasons, and some marriages are simply more difficult than others throughout their entirety. Nonetheless, we can find encouragement and wisdom from our Heavenly Father to live victoriously after “I do.”

Foreword by Chrystal Evans Hurst, Author of “Kingdom Woman.”
