Michelle Obama Did It!

Like so many women who marry, Michelle Obama wanted the fairytale. She was fortunate to come from a two parent home. Her father was home every night for dinner. After marrying Barack, she became despondent when Barack decided to run for office and was never home. She was wanting what she grew up with, which was fine for her father, but she was married to a man with greater vision. She admitted that she had thought of leaving him, but decided to look at the bigger picture and stayed. She did what my company's latest series of books encourages all married couples to do and that is Get Out of the Way! Claim God's Will for Your Marriage.

Just think how sick she would be now had she not figured out that what was happening in her marriage was for the greater good? Hillary Clinton was faced with similar choices. Being married to a man like Bill should have sent her directly to the divorce court, but she too was able to Get Out of the Way! Claim God's Will for Your Marriage.

No one is saying it, but the financial crisis we are currently in has a lot to do with the high rate of failed marriages that hit the middle class. People hit hard times and instead of staying for "better or for worse, richer or poorer," we run to the judge, instead turning to God for the answers we seek.

It is beyond time for married couples to stop leaning on their own understanding and seek the will of God for their marriage so that we may fulfill God's desire for healthy, stable relationships and families.
