Paula Whidden, who has lived in Santa Clarita for 16 years, spent the past 35 years observing, researching and asking healthy couples tough questions.
The result is a book offering a different perspective on how married couples can choose to avoid separation and find more joy in their marriage.
“‘Couple Corners’ began as a result of 35 years of obsessive observation,” Whidden said. “I’ve mentored many friends, served as a pastor in Sunland and even served on the staff of Real Life Church. Throughout my many years of ministry, I’ve had a passion for relationships.”
Marriage is a lifelong journey taken by two, and along the trip couples encounter corners where they can choose to remain together or pull apart, according to Whidden. By addressing the choices married couples face as corners, Whidden offers tools to take the turns together and learn from past mistakes.
Throughout the book, Whidden takes readers on a year-long devotional journey with their spouse to discover how to “turn corners together and enjoy the ride,” according to a press release by Whidden.
Other things readers can learn from the book include how to ignite tough conversations, believe in the possibility of change regardless of how long a habit has held, support one another, enjoy fun experiences together, discover how the Bible gives hope in marriage and more, according to the news release.
“Because my father died one week prior to my parents’ first court date for their divorce, I found myself in a peculiar place,” Whidden said. “Though I knew my family had problems, I hadn’t become accustomed to living in a divorced family either. My heart ached to find what healthy looked like in real life, and I’ve found it many, many times. The people I encountered have helped me and continue to help me learn the lessons I pass on in this book.”
“Couple Corners: 52 Faithful Choices for a More Joy-Filled Marriage,” is currently available on Amazon and at Barnes and Noble bookstores.
