The Book: Pillars of Joy in Marriage

Looking at Marriage in Heaven’s Eyes

Dr. Nxumalo has since operationalized her passion by penning a how-to-do manual: Pillars of Joy in Marriage to revitalize marital relationships in the physical, emotional and spiritual domains. Her book contributes to an army of authors who endeavor to win the silent “battle of the mind” against the marriage institution by:

Sharing her story how God’s GPS has guided her own marriage journey through the years.

Dispelling the illusion of euphoric happiness in marriage.

Assuring readers of an attainable joy in marriage despite turbulences the enemy throws at us.

I have been in ministry for over 30 years and read a lot of material on marital relationships, but Dr. Nxumalo’s approach really held my interest and came from a totally new perspective of investing in your marriage capital was new and refreshing. Well done!
