Relationships are tough. Love takes work. Marriage can be a tug of war.Your way is not the right way. Their way is not the right way. What if you both got out of the way and trusted that God knew what was best for you and your marriage?
In her captivating and heartfelt memoir, That Didn’t Last Long: Why Doing Marriage Your Way Never Works, author and Air Force vet Krystal DesChamps shares with readers what it looks like to practice obedience to God, but not always get the outcome you were hoping for. DesChamps believed she was experiencing a miracle when she had heard God say He was restoring her marriage. After ten years of being apart, she remarried her high school sweetheart. Everything was amazing until it wasn’t. This intimate marital guide and deeply personal account -- at turns poignant, other times whimsical -- tells the story of the author’s failed marriage, the lessons learned about keeping one’s focus on God, surrendering the illusion of control in relationships, and the wisdom she gained from trusting God and her experience.
After her divorce, DesChamps also witnessed many people around her experiencing broken relationships. She felt God pulling on her heart to share this story. Whether you are currently in a marriage that feels like a hopeless situation, or you’ve experienced the hurt, pain, and grief of divorce, there is still good news and hope for you. Turn your eyes and trust to God, and allow this book to be evidence of how He can take any bad situation and use it for your good!
