Jake and Marlee, a typical couple, are about to call it quits. Over time they have drifted apart; the sparks are dead. Marlee is convinced she married the wrong man and Jake feels tied down to the wrong woman. Jake is distant and tired of being controlled while Marlee is tired of being the only one trying to the save their marriage. They go to bed Christmas Eve, in separate rooms, each rationalizing...life is too short to be miserable...love shouldn't hurt like this...their marriage must end for happiness to return. But their lives are about to take a turn. The ghosts of Marriage Past, Marriage Present, and Marriage Future reveal to Jake and Marlee how past choices, present realities, and their potential future might look if they do not change their "stories". Jake and Marlee experience a Christmas gift that will radically change their thinking and cause them to look at marriage not for what they can get out of it but for what God can do in and through their marriage.

Packs a punch!
I'm not that great with fiction audiobooks. For some reason, the urge to consume "just one more chapter" escapes me when I'm listening to most audiobooks. It's never the same as holding the addictive pages. (Of course, there are exceptions. A lot depends on the reader.)

When I'm working, I prefer listening to non-fiction audiobooks because I don't feel I'm missing as much.

When I saw a book co-written by Chris Fabry and Gary Smalley, I decided to try it. I know I love Chris Fabry's fiction, and I like listening to books he reads like War Room and Kevin Leman's type books. And Gary Smalley's work packs a big punch, so it sounded perfect.

I wasn't disappointed. I was able to stay with the story despite it being audio, and the intertwining of fiction and non-fiction worked. It didn't come off as preachy, but it preached. It was an answer to my prayer for God to bless our marriage.

Thanks to these authors for crafting a well-told story that's right where we live. The point was taken and appreciated. God bless your blessed families!

Very true
I love this! If couples would listen to it honestly and open mindedly, they would think twice about destroying their marriage! I am speaking from one who's marriage did not survive. I share this with every young couple I can
