Thriving Despite is a very useful book and appropriately focuses on changing and protecting one's own heart, rather than the spouse. The subject of how to do that with clarity and reducing confusion was helpful. However, 85% of the book was spent identifying the problem and less than 15% was spent guiding one to actually "thrive". What was presented in the thriving heart section were basics, i.e. humility, repentance, forgiveness, bear one another in love. It would be good for an entire book to be devoted to the thriving heart: what would that look like in practical terms? How can a wounded spouse respond in words and deeds, not just in attitude of the heart? What do the authors suggest for "consequences for sin" as they purported the to reader to pursue? Most importantly, how does the wounded spouse socialize with a difficult or dangerous spouse for the next 40 yrs when the offender is perpetually socially withdrawn or demeaning? In the authors' attempt to avoid behavioral "to do" lists, they did not provide tools or guidance for practical everyday living out from good heart.

I have read this book twice and am now going on my third time reading it. The object for me is to get this paradigm way of thinking to become a daily way of living, not to be a set of rules or regulations to live by, but to let the love of Jesus go from my head to my heart. This book has helped me to realize "It's not about me"

This book was undoubtedly Spirit led. Real truths and biblical foundations. I found it very hard to accept the terms of having to grieve the loss of expectation, for me was my homeland while my wife promised to immigrate to America and me having to live in England I have to do this only with me making Jesus King of my life. I took vows before GOD and Church members and it bothers me we are split up at the moment with me in America and my wife back in England. I need to read this book 3-4 times before I can get it into my heart. The heart is the problem place for me. Thanks for this book and including past counseling sessions to make this come to life in real life terms.
