Details: Product Description Marriage and family is the one area where we give up and think we have to live with problems and dysfunction. Could be with your spouse, or the kids, grown kids, parents, or in-laws. We know we can't change anyone else, so we think that means we're stuck with things the way they are until 'they' change.  NOT TRUE. Change the way you think, speak, and act, and you change how it feels to be in your marriage and family. This book will show you new, simple, graceful ways of thinking, speaking, and acting.  "I'm thankful for a voice like Gary Morland speaking into our generation about family and grace and how God can make all things new. This book is an excellent read and will be an inspiration to many." -- Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of Looking for Lovely, Remember God, and Let's All Be Brave Do you hate seeing the same negative scenes and conversations repeating over and over? Do you worry and struggle with your marriage or certain family relationships? Do you get apprehensive over upcoming get-togethers with certain family members, or certain combinations of them? Do you have a certain you-know-who who seems always against you - almost like a nemesis? Are you willing to change your attitude and expectations if only you knew which attitudes and expectations would help? What if instead of winging it and hoping for improvement, you actually knew specific mindsets and tools that help you enjoy your marriage & family? I spent twenty years repeating the same negative scenes and conversations in my marriage and family relationships. Twenty years wishing things would change, without realizing I was digging my own hole. Then someone showed me a better way, and I spent twenty more years discovering the attitudes, words, and actions that really help us move forward.  And btw I took notes the whole time, for you and for me.  Everything I learned ended up in this book. I'd love to show you how I changed and help you the same way I was helped so you can enjoy your marriage and family too. The beauty of grace is when you give it, it comes back and changes YOU, too. This book shows you how.
