Overview

What do you do when your husband calls and says he's lost his job? How do you handle a husband who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's and is now homebound? Will your routine ever get back to normal now that your loving husband who has been deployed for 12 months is now suddenly back at home? Regardless of the reason he's home, one fact is clear . . . he's home.

Dear God, He's Home! is a practical, honest look at how women can deal with a spouse—regardless of the reason—who is forced to become a stay-at-home man. Husbands across the country are experiencing life changes and are being forced home for multiple reasons including health changes, job loss, end of military deployment, and other factors. Their wives are being forced to deal with these changes, too, and the combination of stresses can take its toll on a marriage.

Couples do not have to go through these changes alone. Author and former Saddleback Church leader Janet T. Thompson shares from her heart and her personal experience on how to deal with the paralyzing shock that comes with life changes; what to do next; how to deal with people's reactions; grieving the losses associated with any change; discovering a new focus and purpose as a couple; and restoring the joy to your marital relationship.

Dear God, He's Home! includes personal thought questions, discussion questions for couples, and a small-group discussion guide.
