Week after week, they sit in church . . . alone. They are the spiritually mismatched, those who are committed to a spouse who does not share their faith. Feeling abandoned by their spouse and forgotten by their church, they live out their faith in survival mode, guarding the spiritual flame yet never feeling free to share it. But God wants them to thrive--not just survive. Winning Him Without Words presents ten Christ centered keys to thriving in a spiritual mismatch. Readers are encouraged to commit to Christian community, to release their spouse to God's capable hands, to find peace in their relationships with Christ and with their spouse, to continue their pursuit of a growing faith, and to love their spouse with fresh enthusiasm. God wants every marriage to exude peace and love, and Winning Him Without Words empowers readers to create that environment in their homes and thrive as God works. Winning Him Without Words was the recipient of the Nonfiction Book of 2011 Award from the San Diego Christian Writers Guild, one of the largest Christian writers group in the United States.

Every time you get your hopes up, they come crashing down--shattering like broken promises. You crumble under the weight of your own disappointment. In despair, you cry out to God, “Why don’t You do something? I need your help! Will You ever save my husband?” This is the heart-wrenching cry of a Christian woman whose husband doesn’t know Christ as his Savior and Lord. A great spiritual gulf separates them. It is difficult to agree on day-to-day decisions, let alone larger questions. Everyday life becomes a lonely and painful existence. Linda Davis lived in this difficult situation for fifteen years as she prayed and waited for her husband to become a Christian. Her pain came not only because her husband wasn’t saved, but also because very few people in the church knew how to help her during her struggle. Yet understanding how to cope with this situation is crucial for a wife’s own spiritual health and for strength to endure the strain she is under. Drawing from personal experience and biblical wisdom, Linda Davis describes how you can: Be happy in spite of your circumstances Understand your husband’s point of view Witness to your husband without saying a word Release your husband to God Rely on God’s perfect timing for your husband’s salvation Understand what God means by submission Deal with rejection and hostility Be set free from worry and guilt The Christian wife of an unsaved husband has a special ministry that no one else can fulfill. Linda Davis explains how to minister to your husband while living a rewarding life both spiritually and personally. This book will benefit any woman who desires a deeper spiritual life for both her husband and herself.

You Can Thrive–Not Just Survive–in An Unequally Yoked Marriage Marriage is challenging, even under the best of circumstances. But for those of us whose husbands don’t believe or are not growing spiritually, marriage brings difficulties unlike those faced by other women of faith. If you love a man who is not committed to Christ, you may feel frustrated, guilty, or anxious; discouraged and lonely. You likely worry about how your husband’s beliefs–or lack of them–will affect your children. Perhaps you, like so many women, have tried to “help” your husband find or deepen his relationship with God–only to find that you have, unbelievably, pushed him farther away. You may be wondering, “What do I do now?” Or, worse, you may have lost all hope. God is still in control. Speaking from experience, Nancy Kennedy offers biblical truth, practical help, and comforting insight from women who have walked in your shoes–and who have come to better trust God and more fully understand what to do (and what not to do) When He Doesn’t Believe. From the Trade Paperback edition.
