by Diane Estrella

WINNER SELECTED~~~~AUDREY GRANT!

About the Book

I married an idiot–and so did my spouse. The word, “idiot” is derived from the Greek word meaning “common man.” Aren’t we all common man? In fact, there is only One who was uncommon man–Jesus Christ.  Elaine W. Miller encourages couples to keep their eyes fixed on Jesus and run a marriage marathon like an idiot, but not like a fool. An idiot may stumble or fall, but a fool runs the wrong way.

We All Married Idiots teaches husbands and wives to stop concentrating on the three things you will never change in your marriage and begin focusing on the ten things you can. Then, you will esteem your mate as a gift to treasure, not as an idiot to tolerate.

You can purchase the book here.

My Review

Did the title get your attention???

Good, it’s supposed to!

I’m an idiot and so is my husband. The sooner we realize that we all are human and none of us are better than anyone else, it will give us the right perspective on ourselves, our spouses, and our marriages.

This book gives its readers the option of deciding what to focus on. Are we going to DWELL on the things we CAN NOT change about our spouses and our marriages? Or, (hint hint) should we make the decision to put our best energies and best efforts on what we can change…..?

OURSELVES!!! Our attitudes! Our behaviors! Our actions!

Elaine challenges the reader to think about the ten things we can turn around in our marriages and it all starts with us. When we get the right outlook on our marriages, then real and healthy changes can occur.

Hilarious, convicting, and making me want to love my husband all the more, I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to begin on the road to the marriage you’ve always dreamed of. Why wait another day? Start here, start now!

The title is humorous!! Earlier in my marriage, I might have agreed with it… in all earnest. Anyhow, I would love to win this book.

Yea Ladette! I'm glad your marriage has grown so that you no longer look at your spouse as an idiot. That is my goal. That every spouse will look at their husband or wife as a gift to treasure not an idiot to tolerate. We All Married Idiots gives a whole new persepective to the attitudes that allow marriages to thrive—not just survive. Hope you win it. If not, hope you buy it. A great wedding present!

Blessings,

I do reviews for the Highschool here and it would be awesome to have an adult book. They are donated to the teachers once they are finished. I would love to win this book. I think it would be hilarious.
Thanks so much for the contest

Hi Lora,

Glad you like the title. I'm hoping to write another Idiots book aimed at young people. It's all I figured out in my 50s that I wish I had known in my 20s. Same with We All Married Idiots. Wish I had read this book long ago. Would have changed lots of arguing to lots of loving!

Blessings

thanks, I agree Elaine is a good author. I would love to have the free book, to give to a married couple!

Arlene, I love your heart to give We All Married Idiots away. I was told by a woman that if she had read We All Married Idiots 20 years ago her whole life could have been different and she might not have divorced. Praying God uses We All Married Idiots to save marriages.

Blessings,
