Wow! A read for every married person.
Anyone who is contemplating divorce should read Merrick's book to discover how Almighty God has the power to restore their marriage when they trust and obey Him. Evangelist Mike Gendron, Director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Robert A. Merrick (Bob) is the average-man, guy-next-door, who fell in love, married, raised three children with his wife, built a 23 year career as a Civil Engineer, mowed the lawn, fixed the plumbing, helped his neighbors, and balanced financial challenges. Then one day, his wife packed-up and moved out, and a whole new set of realities fell in on him. Bob was faced with a choice: wallow in self-pity and blame, give up and get a divorce-or-seek God's answer. Over the last 5 years, Bob has made the second choice-daily. ALL of his life experiences-from marriage and professional career, to founding a Christian high school and teaching, to coaching youth sports and leading Church fellowship groups-seemed to have little relevance in the midst of this crisis. Over these recent years, Bob walked closer with God-learned more about the meaning of, ".all things work together for good to those who love God." (Romans 8:28)-and spent hundreds of late-night hours writing out the Biblical insights he has discovered. Why Stand? is a testament of our Lord and Savior's no-matter-what love for us. It is a book that gives hope in times of painful circumstances and encouragement to stand for what is right, what is good, what is God. Bob is currently seeking his Masters Degree in Christian Counseling at Colorado Theological Seminary. His heart is to follow God and to lead others to the freedom and victory found through faith in Jesus Christ. www.2of12ministries.com
