Guess What? If you are holding this book right now
you are holding onto dynamite! Wait… don't drop
it! Remember dynamite is often used to explode old,
ugly buildings so that something of practicality and
beauty may be born.
The principles of "The Man of Her Dreams, The
Woman of His" may shatter your "cemented"
ideas. They may cause you to re-think your values.
They may irritate you, they may tickle your funny
bone, they may bring some tears. Just know that whatever
stage of marriage you are experiencing, it really
can get better. It can become wonderful.
If you are happy, happy, happy in your relationship,
give thanks. There's always room for "more happy!"
You'll find it by using the principles expressed in
this book. If your marriage has reached the bottom
of an ugly pit, hang on! It can change. There is hope.
If you're somewhere in the dull, boring, "in
between" you are ready for a treat. Perhaps it's
time for an explosion into joy.
Man of Her Dreams, The Woman of His" is not just
words, theory or educational facts. It is life experience.
It is the honest (very honest) exposure of the reality
of a marriage on the rocks, in the rocks, under the
rocks, crushed by the rocks. It is the story of a
toxic ugly relationship made beautiful by the dynamite
explosions of the old and the birthing of the new.
It is the story of my son. It is the story of my daughter-n-law.
Nothing is held back.
I am very proud of Joel and Kathy - my kids! I have
been extremely blessed to see them grow into one of
the most fulfilled couples I know. Twelve years ago
I saw the marriage as very sad, dysfunctional and
hopeless. It has been a miracle brought about by Joel
and Kathy actually believing and working out the marriage
principles of "The Man of Her Dreams, The Woman
They give God the credit and the Glory. They will
be forever thankful to Paul Hegstrom, director of
Life Skills International located in Aurora, Colorado.
Through the principles taught at the seminar the dynamite
exploded! Joel and Kathy made a choice.
Today you are given that choice. For each of you it
will be different.
For some it will be to stay in the boring ho-hum of
For some it will be to stay in a trapped, abusive
For some it will be satisfaction with a marriage that
seems as OK as the next.
I trust that many of you will choose to open the doors
of your hearts and minds --let the dynamite of God's
power and the application of biblical principles transform
your marriage into the joyous, fulfilling experience
that God intended.
