The first chapter is “Thought #1: My Husband Is My Neighbor.” Of the nine thoughts Sheila writes about in the book, this was the hardest for me to come to terms with when I was working past the most difficult season in my marriage.
Reading the chapter helped me recognize that there are times this is still a struggle for me. If it’s a struggle for you, too, her action steps will give you an opportunity to develop some good habits that may be able to lead to a change in your thinking.
One of the steps is to ask your husband something new about himself every day for the next two weeks and to share something about yourself as well. If you need some ideas for what to ask, check out the free Year of Questions for You & Your Spouse download at The Generous Wife.
If you want to connect with some other women in discussing this journey, you can still sign up here:
(I will use your email address only to communicate about this book study. At any time that you want to stop receiving emails from me, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to ask.)
Women who register have access to a section of my website where we can discuss each of the chapters, share our struggles, and encourage each other in a private space.
You’re welcome to follow along without signing up, too. I’ll post every few weeks about one of the chapters and will share what I have learned. (The post about the first chapter should be up the first week in February.)
Congratulations to Dawn and Pat, winners of the 9 Thoughts giveaway. They will each get a copy of Sheila’s book.
