Rekindled: How to Keep the Warmth in Marriage
Rekindled How to Keep the Warmth in Marriage Author:Jill Williams, Jerry B. Jenkins, Pat Williams Pat and Jill Williams appeared to be the epitome of a happily married Christian couple. Pat was the dynamic, highly successful general manager of the champion Philadelphia 76ers basketball team. Jill, a former beauty queen, was a talented entertainer who had the lovely family, beautiful home, and handsome husband she had dreamed of since she was... more » a young girl. But on December 19, 1982, during what the Williams now refer to as their "darkest hour," Jill informed Pat that she hated her marriage, and didn't know if she still loved him. She caught him totally by surprise. Scared and shaken, Pat realized that Jill was emotionally dead. And that he had killed her.
Rekindled is the true, candid story of the death of their "perfect" ten-year-old marriage, a death that was necessary in order for the Lord to help them establish a thriving and exciting relationship that both could enjoy. Pat and Jill share the frustrations, the insensitivity, the silences, and the storms as they take you back to their courtship and then trace the paths each followed as their marriage headed toward disaster. They also share how God humbled Pat and led him into a commitment to rekindle their love patiently and prayerfully.
