Summary

Discover what it means to truly trust God, and how a deep relationship with him can bring life and joy into marriage. Renowned family counselor, seminar speaker, and author Gary Smalley gives insight into five truths that can transform marriage.

Sharing openly from his own relationship with his wife, Norma, Gary shows why both husbands and wives need:

  • An independent energy source to recharge their spiritual batteries
  • Someone each can talk to about anything and at any time
  • An understanding of their emotions and what they mean
  • Reassurance that their trials have meaning
  • A shared mission they can strive for together

Great book for dealing with difficult situations

What made the experience of listening to Joy That Lasts the most enjoyable?

Gary Smalley has a great message in this book that (as he readily admits) was revealed to his wife, Norma, and just articulated and refined by him. With complete Scriptural reference, Gary shares how the trials and suffering we so often complain about can be the very tools that equip us to get through future situations and to build relationships with others as we help them deal with things we've gone through ourselves. The

What other book might you compare Joy That Lasts to and why?

From Anger to Intimacy, which also helps find good from bad situations.
