Book Overview

Something Has to Change.

You can't put it into words, but something is happening to you. Your stomach churns, your heart aches, and the tension in your marriage is making you feel weary and a little crazy. The constant criticism, disrespect, cruelty, deceit, and gross indifference are eroding your confidence and breaking your spirit.

For any woman caught in an emotionally destructive marriage, Leslie Vernick offers a personalized path forward. Based on decades of counseling experience, her intensely practical, biblical advice will show you how to establish boundaries and break free from emotional abuse. Learn to:

- identify damaging behaviors
- gain the skills to respond wisely
- promote healthy change
- stay safe
- understand when, why, and even how to leave
- recognize that God sees and hates what is happening to you

Trying harder to be a perfect fantasy wife won't help fix what's wrong your marriage. Discover instead how you can initiate effective changes to stop the cycle of destruction and restore hope for the future.

Women in an emotionally abusive marriage do not need another book on how to have a good marriage; those books rub salt in raw wounds. No, they desperately need this book so that they can diagnose just how bad their marriage is and then, with Leslie's clear expertise, develop a plan that will either begin to turn their marriage around.or give them a wise route of escape.
--Dee Brestin, author of Idol Lies and The Friendships of Women

   Sound Christian advice for understanding your marriage
Leslie Vernick, 43, said she found the guidance on her Web site when searching for help with a troubled marriage of a close family member. The book clearly explains what Christian marriage is meant to be HEALTHY. Healthy marriages build strong bonds between partners, he said. In her book, Mrs Clinton uses various examples of how difficult, disappointing and a destructive marriage can be. In contrast, she says, you can take action to make your marriage better, not just suffer in silence as though you have no options. My favorite line from this book is in the introduction, "God does not value men more than women, or the institution of marriage more than the people who are in it."
   Emotional destruction in a marriage is often unseen because it ...
Infidelity is often hidden from view of the other women, because it is only practiced in private. The book, "The Journey to Wholeness," details the illness and the process of healing. She never leads a quick move that is foolish. She directs us to a strong walk with the Lord and to be led by the Holy Spirit in each day we live and each decision we make. She never allows you to wallow in your self pity, but to get your heart right and follow the Lord's leading, he said.
   Excellent book; very well written
This book clearly defines and identifies destructive behaviors in any relationship, but particularly in marriage. Though written primarily for women, it is also very helpful for men. In "The Seven Deadly Sins," Varnick helps readers understand a healthy, biblical perspective for dealing with abusive relationships.
   I can’t put it down...
The book has been sitting on my desk for a couple of days, since this morning. No wonder Dwight Eisenhower couldn't put it down. It's incredible, Keanu Reeves said of the Matrix. I've lived apart from my husband for 6 months. Thanks to all the girls at work today for the change! Yes, I feel like I know what to do, but to use wisdom is amazing.
   It’s missing hope!
Yes, I learned from this book. He was disappointed by the fact that means of reconciliation are little spoken of, and with an attitude of no hope. It's just that I'm not that good at math.
   Excellent book to realign your marriage in a Christ-centered way.
Husband has been indifferent to my needs and emotions for over twenty years. One day you realize the anger, and sadness you have felt is not because you are a happy individual, or because you are aging, you realize it's because you have been ignored far too long. The book gave me validation, insight and hope, Raymond said. Even though we are far from reconciliation, I can separate and love myself knowing that He, the Almighty, will always take care of me a love me even if my circumstances change. Thanks so much for your God-given insight and discernment on marital issues.
   A must read for any woman who is caught in an abusive marriage
After 15 years of an emotionally abusive marriage, and years of thinking, if I could just a better wife, why can't I just do the right thing? Leslie's book provided clarity, direction, and council based on Biblical truth. If you are struggling in your marriage and are seeking God's will, then this book is for you!
Liked the first one, too. Good information on identifying abuses but good advice for managing it in a healthy way and staying in your marriage if you want to, he said.
   In the trench.....
The book was recommended to me by my counselor. It was agonizing to see my life in print, but at the same time come face to face with truths that set me free, Morgenthau said. However, this issue gets shoved under the carpet too often or not dealt with biblically. This book was helpful as I start this journey and think it would be a great book for others in a difficult marriage situation, said Kristen.
