In times such as these? When the family structure is under attack... In the times such as these? When it seems marriages are ending in bitter divorce. And in times - when “victory” is achieved by merely “stitching together” a marriage by settling in as “roommates.” Mandy Renteria’ gives an alternative. And that alternative is Jesus. A wonderful book - beautifully written. The Devil Messed With the Wrong Girl gives real advice and mostly - the TOOLS needed to build a solid marriage. Highly recommended.

A wife longing for happily ever after caught in bitter resentment.
A husband entangled in addiction.
Our relationship was perfect. He was my best friend, my soulmate. When he relapsed into his addiction, we lost our way with each other. Deceit, lies, and bitterness began to destroy us. When we saw a dead-end road, God paved the road to redemption.
This is a true story of two people with various levels of trauma in their lives, blissfully uniting in marriage but unaware they would soon be on a fast train heading toward bitterness and, even possibly, divorce. They learned how to:
Identify the real enemy
Stop fighting each other
Begin fighting together
Forgive and heal
Submit to God
Today their marriage is thriving under the God who moves mountains and provides miracles.
