What makes one person want to marry another? If you’re married, what have you not dared to say to each other that might open a new doorway to deeper intimacy together?
Join bestselling author Gordon Dalbey and his wife Mary, an author and psychologist, in these ten challenging yet rewarding courtship discussions during their pioneering journey together.
Here are ten upending but essential statements that Mary said during our courtship, which demonstrated self-respect on her part—and thereby, led me to respect her. My answer to each question is followed by her story of why that issue was so significant to her, plus “Focus and Reflection” questions for group discussions.
Often, her view of the event differs from mine. That’s where we discovered the adventure—with humor, heartfelt honesty, and unforgettable life-changing lessons.
Having six college degrees and years of ministry between us, nevertheless the overwhelming mystery of attraction and destiny humbled us to where our dependence on Father God counted most in joining our hearts.
These stories, therefore, are not about techniques to get what you want from God, but rather, a trusting relationship which enables God to get what He wants for you, namely, a fulfilling life together in sync with His purposes.
