Emptied By Wynter & Jonathan Pitts

For a Marriage That Brims Over
Maybe you entered marriage with some pretty high expectations—most couples do. Jonathan and Wynter Pitts did. Until the reality of married life spilled into their expectations.
Jonathan and Wynter invite you on a journey to explore a different approach to your happily-ever-after marriage. Join them for an honest look at the lessons learned as they navigated the ups and downs of early marriage while raising four daughters.
Here you will...
  • be encouraged to remove the pressure of a keeping-up-with-the-Joneses marriage
  • learn to let go of assumptions and embrace your role as servant-leader to your spouse
  • experience how God can pour His purpose, passion, and fullness into your relationship
Emptied is a way of life. It’s not about trying harder, it’s about thinking differently. Only when you are emptied of your own self-focused motivations can God pour new life into you for the abundant marriage and satisfying relationship you long for. Are you ready to approach your marriage poured out, ready to be filled up?

Wynter tragically passed from death to life on July 24, 2018, after 15 years of marriage to her beloved Jonathan. She leaves behind an incredible legacy through her many writings but more importantly in her four daughters—Alena, Kaitlyn, Camryn, and Olivia.

My Thoughts...

Ready to learn from another couple that is not perfect? This is a good guide.
Know yourself so your relationship can be better and know your partner is not perfect. Then we can empty ourselves for each other.
This is a great book to give as a wedding gift. This would make a good book for small couples groups.
I gave this book 4 stars. Pick up a few and give them as gifts.
