Longwood, FL (PRWEB) August 3, 2009
With the current divorce rate soaring, couples are searching for ways to understand where marital conflict originates and how to bring positive change and healing to their relationship. In Paul Backlund's As Long as We Both Shall Give: Identifying and Meeting the Needs of Your Mate ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-60791-997-1; $25.99, hardcover, 978-1-60791-998-8), a new Xulon Press release, he addresses complex relational issues in a way that will make sense to the reader. Written to guide couples to a more intimate relationship with God and each other, this book identifies God's design and purpose for human relationships and marriage, explores the unique needs of men and women in marriage, explains how couples confuse God's purpose with human perceptions, and explores stressors common to any marriage.
Says Backlund, "I want the readers to appreciate the differences men and women bring into the marriage relationship instead of allowing those differences to divide the marriage. I want them to understand how family dynamics shape each individual and how we can have fulfilling marriages that glorify God. I want the reader to see the necessity of extending grace to one another and overcoming past and present hurts."
An ordained minister with the Pentecostal Free Will Baptist Church, Backlund expertly uses his experience in pastoral counseling--and conflict resolution--to communicate God's design for marriage and today's marital stresses. Injecting hope and wisdom into his book, the author provides the keys for readers to finally achieve marital satisfaction.
Paul Backlund and his wife, Kathy, live in Sanford, North Carolina.
