What Did You Expect?

This is the last week of the CMBA challenge to post during the month of October on Words of Wisdom. This last week is to include books or blogs that have had an impact on our marriage for good.

Hands down, we both agree that Paul Tripp is the author who has had the most lasting impact on our marriage. He’s written lots of books, we’ve attended lots of his seminars, we’ve listened to countless audio tapes of his teaching, and we’ve even been able to thank him in person for his influence.

His book, What Did You Expect?, takes all the teachings we’ve heard and puts them in one book that is easy to read and oh, so helpful.

He is a Biblical Counselor, so as you’re reading he is able to anticipate your reaction to the Truth he is highlighting. It’s almost like he’s reading your mail. This proves that there is nothing new under the sun, as Solomon so eloquently penned in Ecclesiastes. What has been before will happen again. What you’re currently facing in your relationship has happened to others before you, but the enemy of our souls wants to make us feel isolated and alone, as if we are the only ones who have walked this road.

Biblical Counseling throws an ax to that myth. And this book is like having your own counselor sitting with you in your living room to help you dissect what is off in your marriage.

Watch this book trailer and see how compelling his words are. We pray it will draw you to read the book for yourself. It’s that good!

  1. Thanks for this post Debi. We agree, this is also our favorite book and teaching material we use for our class. It is good to see other marriage bloggers who think the same way.
