Longwood, FL (PRWEB) January 17, 2008
Marriage is not a relationship of convenience; it is a lifelong commitment to your spouse. Like every journey, marriage has its highs and lows and each marriage is unique: no two couples travel down the same road. Good marriages don't just happen. The couples in exceptional marriages are willing to pray; learn; grow; develop a positive, biblical, and godly attitude; discover how to speak their spouse's love language; and celebrate differences. Bimbo Odukoya's Marriage: Real People, Real Problems, Wise Counsel (paperback, 978-1-60477-450-4) contains true-life experiences of couples who experienced the pitfalls of marriage. Although some names and details have been changed in order to protect the identities of the couples, the stories are very real, and readers will benefit from learning the experiences of these men and women in order to avoid all they have gone through.
Says Taiwo Odukoya, husband of the author, "Contrary to today's negative trend, you can have a good marriage. [The book provides] practical and hands-on methods in solving issues plaguing marriages today. It is a proof-producer."
Before passing away on December 10, 2005, Bimbo Odukoya received numerous awards for her contributions to society. Formerly a pastor of The Fountain of Life Church in Lagos Nigeria, she ran a ministry dedicated to challenging, motivating, and empowering women in their roles as wives, mothers, and leaders, and ministered on practically every Nigerian university and polytechnic campus in addition to running regular columns in several newspapers and magazines and starring in a popular TV program, Single & Married. Her time-tested truths about marriage, part of the rich, lasting legacy she has left behind, will help struggling couples navigate the pitfalls of marriage and strengthen their relationship in Christ.
