Howard Books to release “Marriage Triggers”
by Amber Lia and Guy Lia
Having the same argument with your spouse over and over again? Pick up MARRIAGE TRIGGERS: Exchanging Spouses’ Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses (on sale January 28, 2020; Howard Books) by Amber Lia and Guy Lia, with a foreword by Dave and Ashley Willis, authors of The Naked Marriage and hosts of The Naked Marriage Podcast. Married for 14 years and counting, this husband-wife team offer practical advice for married couples to end the cycle of reactionary arguments by examining the most common issues that trigger disagreements.
Many couples know their marriage has room for improvement, but it is hard to pinpoint exactly why a relationship is suffering. Often times every day triggers are the culprit. The “little things” we don’t know how to address—or have been addressing incorrectly—make us angry and frustrated with no hope for change. If you are wondering how to break out of the cycle of reactionary outbursts, cold shoulders, resentment, and pain that harms your relationship, you are not alone. Experiencing peace and joy rather than anger and frustration is not as hard as you think!
MARRIAGE TRIGGERS walks you through 31 of the most common marital issues that sabotage great relationships, such as:
- Poor communication
- Lack of spiritual leadership
- Busy schedules
- Different parenting styles
Rather than run from the things that cause conflict, Amber and Guy believe these triggers are opportunities for growth, both individually and as a couple. They challenge you to let MARRIAGE TRIGGERS renew your commitment to responding gently and biblically towards your partner.
