I think every little girl grows up dreaming of marriage. I can still recall my daughter, Emily, at age four, sitting in the back seat of our car with her best friend from pre-school, talking about getting married. Somewhere along the way our hopes and dreams are realized. But as Florence Littauer describes in her book, After Every Wedding Comes a Marriage, marriage does not always look like the picture we created in our minds. Don’t you wish there was an instruction manual?
That’s exactly what Joyce Zook has given us in her book, 12 Keys for Marriage Success. Joyce’s book is an instructional guide that takes the reader through 12 steps to create not just a successful marriage, but a happy one that leaves both partners fulfilled and satisfied.
Joyce’s story begins with the difficult description of deceit, infidelity and ultimately divorce. However, out of that devastating experience, Joyce recognized the need to help other women find success in their marriage by providing practical ideas based on biblical guidelines.
Each chapter of Zook’s book provides a description of one of her 12 Keys. Chapters include easy to follow marriage tips and thoughtful questions to help the reader improve their marriage. Topics like Admiring Your Hunk, No Nagging, and Date Your Mate are addressed.
This book is intended for women. In fact, the subtitle is “What a Wife Can Do to Create a Wonderful Marriage.” Reading through the pages I realized that the focus of Joyce’s keys was her spouse. Ladies, let’s get real here. Most of the time we think it’s all about us. Joyce takes it from a different angle. And while she doesn’t come right out and say this, the one thing I took away from my reading was, if I strive to make my husband happy then our marriage will thrive and I will find happiness and fulfillment as well.
As I closed the last pages of the book, I had one final thought. I wished I had read this book forty years ago. Ladies, whether you are recently married, about to be married or married for many years, I encourage you to get your copy and start using Joyce’s 12 Keys today.
I might add Joyce met a wonderful man and she and Aaron have been happily married for over 38 years, living proof that those keys work.
