New Book.. for me

So I love to read. I typically read true crime or biography. Maybe a little history from time to time. So I got this particular book I am reading now at the Weekend to Remember that hubby and I attended last year. We have bought several christian "self-help" books the last couple of years we have gone. Well most unfortunately have come home and collected death on my book shelf while I scan over them and read all my other favorites.
Not too long ago Henry and I went through a rough patch where I didn't even wanna be in the same room he was in. Sorry honey, but honesty is the best policy. I decided I had to do something. I know all the answers I need in my life are Gods word that He sent for you and me. Well sometimes I have trouble knowing where to turn, so I need a little added help.
I picked up this book off my shelf and wiped the dust off. WOW.. it has so made me wake up and realize for one the idols I am putting ahead of other things in my life. Also the type of person I am when it comes to dealing with conflict. It has opened my eyes to know that I need to learn other ways of dealing with things. While I still let my temper get the best of me at times sad to say. I am learning to deal with conflict better.
I am not done with the book, this is however what I love about the book. As you read page to page it will give you scripture that you can look on or is already in the book. It lets me see how what the author is saying is tied directly in to what God has for me, and you. It doesn't feel like I have some holier than though author telling me their view on what is best for what my life should be. It lets me know what the ultimate author has for me. The way He wants my life, marriage and being a parent to be.
I know so many people have taught me things throughout my christian walk but sometimes I need to read it, write it all those things. I need to be able to study on it and apply it...
So anyway... the book is called "Peacemaking For Families" If you are struggling in your life with the way you deal with conflict in your family I highly recommend read this book...

I will let you know how it goes.....
