What’s It Like To Be Married To Me by Linda Dillow


About the Author:
Linda Dillow is the author of numerous books including the best-selling Creative Counterpart and Intimate Issues (with Lorraine Pintus), as well as a popular speaker at women's conferences around the world.
Linda lives in Monument Colorado with her husband, Jody. They have four grown children and 10 grandchildren.

Linda Dillow has written the best " marriage handbook" for women that I have found. She has a guide that encourages women to look into the mirror that shows what we can become.
She uses biblical principles, Anecdotes  from women across the country, as well as, sharing her experiences in a 47 year marriage.
This book is a book every woman should read. It should be on everyone's bookshelf.

My reflections:
I was intrigued by this book since I heard an interview with the author. I never stopped to think about this question before. When I did stop and think about it – I really began to see a lot of fallacies I've been holding onto. The author asks the difficult questions that really hits the bull's-eye of self-examination. Some of the questions were  harder to answer that others but all of them started me on a journey of self reflection. I am taking the insights to heart and am slowly putting them into action in my life. My marriage is not reached the “aha!” moments where everything is rosy but I do see gradual improvements daily.
