See Through Marriage

by

Ryan and Selena Frederick

Marriage is all about sharing: sharing space, sharing joys and sorrows, sharing hopes and dreams. Yet we often hold back a part of ourselves because we fear that being wholly transparent–about our past, our desires, our failures, our faults–will bring judgment, rejection, or even just unwanted friction to our relationship. We are afraid to be fully known. As a result, we never experience being fully loved.

Fierce Marriage authors Ryan and Selena Frederick think your marriage deserves better. In this new, paradigm-shifting book, they show you how to develop a see-through marriage, one that is marked by full transparency and confident vulnerability. Through personal stories, testimonies from other couples, and biblical truth, they make the case that living authentically in front of each other is the only way to experience love the way we were designed to.

If you desire an honest, no-holding-back marriage where you are fully known, fully accepted, and fully loved, you need this book

 

My Thoughts

If you are married, then this is a book that you probably want or need to read. I had barely started reading when I felt my toes getting stepped on. Majorly. This couple speaks with such an honest, frank manner, showing how to have a better marriage. Giving examples from their own lives, sharing stories. Showing from Scripture what God wants of us.

I loved the word picture shown, we are to be like stained glass windows. Each piece, on it’s own, is nothing. Without light shining through, it is nothing. Put them all together, and shine that LIGHT through, and it becomes a stunning masterpiece. That is what God wants from His children.

Am I willing to be transparent enough that His light can shine through me? What do I need to change, what areas do I need to grow in, to make this happen?

This is one of those books that needs to be read, and then shelved for a time, and then read again. And again. Until the message permeates all the cracks and crevices of my core.
