Description of Grace Filled Marriage: The Missing Piece. the Place to Start. by Tim Kimmel

There are few places on the planet where grace is less often expressed than in marriage. We often show more grace to our competitors in sports, politics and business than we do to our husbands or wives. Think about it . . .. What does grace have to do with marriage? Vital elements like forgiveness, security, significance, acceptance, approval, intimacy-all are words of grace for which we hunger. . What does a grace-based marriage look like? We hear grace in our tone of voice, we see grace in expressions on our faces, we feel grace in the warmth of a touch, we taste grace in acts of simple courtesy, we smell grace in the fragrance of shared prayers and desires. Dr. Kimmel shows you how to evaluate your own grace-aptitude, and then leads you step-by-step into grace intelligence that will transform first you, and then your marriage.

5 StarsGet Your Grace On!
I've recently been awakening to grace and the magnitude of what it really means to know and experience God's grace and how it should affect the way I live. As I read the Kimmels' book, "Grace-Filled Marriage," I grew increasingly exited because it gave me practical ways to apply grace on a daily basis. Part 1 of the book, "What's Grace Got to do With It?," builds the case for why we should have grace-filled marriages--because God bestows His mind-boggling grace on us. The Kimmels say, "Most of us enter marriage thinking our relationship with our spouse is all about love. But in reality it's about grace." Speaking from personal experience, the authors lead readers to identify the graceless ways they view their spouse and to begin replacing those distorted lenses with the lens of grace. Then in Part 2, which is where I really got excited, the Kimmels define "What Does Grace Look Like in a Marriage?" Unpacking a strategy for living out a grace-filled marriage, the authors help readers explore four dimensions of Gods grace, things God is doing for us--that we can do for our spouses: meeting true inner needs, giving their heart freedom, building their character, and aiming them at true greatness. The Kimmels make sure readers understand this only work if we carry it out in God's power saying, "Your relationship to each other will stand or fall primarily on your relationship with Christ." I appreciate the authors' candid, "we've been" there authenticity as they help readers discover they can live grace-filled lives despite past mistakes--as long as they are connected to Jesus, the True Vine. What I like most is that Part 2 of "Grace-Filled Marriage" gives practical strategies I can apply today as I offer my husband the grace God has offered me. At the same time, I look forward to the possibility of some study guides or small group resources to accompany the book so I can work this out in community with other like-minded believers. The Kimmels say, "The God who bought and paid for you on the cross wants to give your marriage abundant life." And they show you how to find that abundant life by applying grace. So whether you're in an okay marriage, a difficult marriage, or a great one, you'll find encouragement, hope, and practical steps to get you on the road to the abundant life God wants you to have. "Grace-filled Marriage" is written by Dr. Tim Kimmel, with his wife Darcy. Dr. Kimmel is the founder and Executive Director of Family Matters. Family Matters is a non-profit ministry with the purpose of seeing families transformed by God's grace into instruments of restoration and reformation by equipping families for every age and stage of life. Dr. Kimmel and his wife, Darcy, also team up with other organizations such as Family Life, Focus on the Family and MOPS to build strong families.

However, the opinions expressed are my own.
