Book Review ~ I DO AGAIN: How We Found a Second Chance at Our Marriage--and You Can Too by Cheryl & Jeff Scruggs

I Do Again, by Cheryl and Jeff Scruggs is a true story. I would recommend it to everyone, because not only is it a very good book, it also proclaims that nothing is impossible with God. And if you just happen to be in a marriage that you think is beyond hope...once you pick up this book and start to read, you will have found your hope. Having gone through divorce myself, I had no trouble relating to what Cheryl was going through when she felt she could "no longer live like this". I think I said those exact words. Another thing that hit home, was the fact that as one person is thinking they can't stay in a loveless marriage, their spouse just may be oblivous to any marital problems at all, and will be totally dumbfounded when the other first mentions the word divorce.
With their professional success and adorable twin daughters,
Jeff and Cheryl Scruggs looked like the perfect couple. But their polished
facade concealed a widening chasm between two people unable to connect on an
intimate, soul-deep level.

After years of frustration, Cheryl’s desire for emotional
fulfillment led to an affair and, finally, divorce. Yet, incredibly, seven years
later, Jeff and Cheryl once again stood at the altar, promising to “love, honor,
and cherish” one another. A new and vibrant love had risen out of the ashes of
this family’s pain.

I Do Again details the fascinating real-life story of a couple
whose relationship seemed shattered beyond all hope until a spiritual awakening
led them to reconsider their definitions of “happily ever after.” A riveting
account of the power of prayer and redemption, this remarkable book offers
renewed hope for even the most troubled marriages—and reveals why the rewards of restoration are well worth the wait.
