Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Moms
Mothering is one of the most joyous and also most tiresome experiences. Every mother on one day or another has sent out those S.O.S. cries, longing for just a few sacred moments to regroup and to be rejuvenated.
Often, the only place in the house where a mom might capture one of these rare moments of quiet reflection is while soaking in a bubble bath, where a day’s challenges can be washed away with a few splashes of serenity. In these 30 five-minute meditations, Miller restores sanity with Scripture and shares poignant, often amusing vignettes to encourage mothers along their journey. Through her words, allow the Lord to “massage our tired toes with His oils of gladness and transform our sluggish steps into a joyful dance.”
Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Wives
A fairy-tale wedding does not guarantee a happily-ever-after marriage–no matter how charming the prince. Days will come when life and matrimony tap our reserves.
For new brides with high expectations that their marriages will be the one read about in fairy tales…For wives whose marriages are currently experiencing a retreat…For wives who may be drained already…thinking that there is no hope for their marriages….
Splashes of Serenity offers refreshment with 30 five-minute vignettes and S.O.S. prayers encouraging wives to give their husbands and their vows another look when they feel like throwing in the towel.
We All Married Idiots: Three Things You’ll Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can
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.
