I just wanted to write a note to let you know what a blessing your book has been. Months ago my mind was made up to file for a divorce. I was sure that I could live with out my husband and that my girls would be better off with out him for a father. His marijuana use, pornography addiction, pathological lying, and non-support of us had me convinced of it. I was in the process of filing the divorce papers, a couple days before that, my mother gave me “Created to be His Help Meet” and I began reading it. I decided that being a "Christian" woman it was worth while to at least try the Bible's way. I've tried every other way, even followed pastor's advice, my parent's advice, etc., etc., etc, all with the same end result: file for divorce. After reading your book I realized for the first time that God's way is for me to love, respect, honor, and OBEY, no matter what. I now realize that my husband may never change, but that's not what’s important...God wants me to change. For the first time in my 3 years of marriage, I have peace. Right now he lives in another state, with the goal of buying a home and moving the rest of us in with him as soon as possible. All though I only get to talk to him by phone, my whole demeanor and attitude towards him has changed and we have finally stopped fighting. It's been amazing! I finally have a realistic idea of what God created me to be. Thanks for writing such a wonderful book and teaching us younger women. .
