101 - A Marriage of Reconciliation

Stephen L. Ashford has written a book about the 25 years he and his wife Cynthia were married, divorced and remarried.  Included are five notable miracles that occurred during that period of time that led to their reconciliation.

In his first book, 101 (the book explains the title) he demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt, there is Christ-given grace for marriage. Broken marriages can and are being restored and in his book Stephen offers the Christian marriage success guidance that can help Christians use their marriage problems to grow closer to God and develop their life purpose at the same time.    

Book Review Of 101 by Margaret Lukasik ...

Christian Marriage Success Book Review

101 is a unique book about faith and obedience to the Lord's Word for a successful marriage in Christ as well as life direction.  The author, Pastor Stephen Ashford, opens his life to the reader giving us the opportunity to see a man and wife start out in love, but with little faith in God they eventually experience a change in their relationship which brings them hardship, trial and tribulation.  They fall into a time of despair and immobility in their marriage to the point of separation and eventual divorce.

The author reveals his demons that caused his marriage to fail, but through this breakdown he manages to grow his faith as he makes a decision to use God's word to focus his life upon and set his goal to reconcile with his wife. His new determination to trust God strengthened him in the Lord.

Pastor Stephen shows us that God has no earthly timing to fit our need of receiving an answer to our prayers and that a person of faith must wait, trusting God for their answer while remaining focused upon the Word. In the author's case it took eight years of faith and growth to see his prayer answered but along the way he grew as a Christian and as a man who became a better husband and father as well as fulfilling his desire to become a pastor and teacher of faith.

He has an overview at the end of the book about marriage that is insightful to everyone who is married as a guide to reflect on, especially if one has a relationship in need of repair.  He is realistic in his understanding about when a marriage is salvageable and when it is not. From a person who waited eight years to reclaim his marriage, he has learned from his experience and desires to share that information with others. 

This book is inspirational and heartfelt as well as easy to read and understand.  I suggest 101 for Christians who are troubled in their marriages and also for those who need better understanding about how to trust God for their problems and develop a deeper relationship with Christ.   If you're looking for a way to develop a means of achieving Christian marriage success, 101 will help you walk with God in order to place Him at the center of your marriage.
