Challenges in Marriage is temporarily out of stock while it is being reissued.
"One more thing, FYI, I have listened to all the classes, some of them several
times, looked at some of the scriptures, and read all the outlines, that is
where I got my courage and confidence and sanity!!!" (Canadian Christian)
Over the course of the past two or three months, I have gone through the book Marriage: A Taste of Heaven, the accompanying tape series, and the Challenges in Marriage tape series. All of them are fantastic.
I have gone through your Challenges in Marriage classes and the first thing I realized is that I'm not crazy; that I have been suffering emotional abuse. You have given such biblical and practical helps in this area, and I have begun to practice my "mirror lines." I realize my situation is not nearly so bad as many. My husband also has many fine qualities and we generally enjoy each other's company as long as we don't get into personal discussions. But I also felt angry that I had put up with so much over the years and felt trapped. I have gone through the classes twice. Thanks!
Your material on fighting fair has really opened my eyes. My husband used to punch my buttons with ease. Now I remain calm, and he's confused about why he can't bully his way through to winning an argument. (New York Christian)
Update: "There has not been any verbal abuse in this house since I've learned how to fight fair and stuck with it until my husband also learned to fight fair."
Patsy Rae Dawson has taught marriage classes, specifically the Marriage: A Taste of Heaven series, for over thirty-five years. Challenges in Marriage came about from students requesting help with severe problems that didn't respond to the usual classes on marriage. Through surveys and looking back on her many years of experience, she discovered that every time a marriage doesn't respond, some type of sin is being covered up in the home. Her resulting study and going through training at two women's shelters led to publishing this series of classes.
Many of the dark secrets found in marriages are openly dealt with as the series teaches the natural course of sin from just a beginning slip to where it completely enslaves and controls the person and inhibits love. Yet even in these cases, God has given his people tremendous influence and power for correcting these situations. God even deals with "husband" abuse as he describes the odious and clamorous wife.
Challenges in Marriage teaches what to do about sin in the home and offers help for couples drowning in problems:
Plus Other Areas
This album uses over 400 major scriptural points, with examples from everyday life, to demonstrate the power of the Bible for solving marriage problems and transforming lives.
