AUTHOR SHELIA LIPSEY


My Son’s Wife:
Sinful revelations that only a loving and forgiving God can make right.


But there is a great difference between Adam’s sin and God’s gracious gift. For the sin of this one man, Adam, brought death to many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of forgiveness to many through this other man, Jesus Christ. And the result of God’s gracious gift is very different from the result of that one man’s sin. For Adam’s sin led to condemnation, but God’s free gift leads to our being made right with God, even though we are guilty of many sins. For the sin of this one man, Adam, caused death to rule over many. But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of righteousness, for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man, Jesus Christ. Romans 5:15 – 17 New Living Translation

Dialogue With The Author

Reading My Wife’s Son often brought to mind the story from the bible regarding Jacob and the favoritism he harbored for two of his sons. It also made me extremely aware of a need for more books that speak to the dysfunction viewed as normal within the family unit.

Dialogue with the author, Shelia Lipsey reveals her concern for having healthy families. “My Son’s Wife is not merely a story about favoritism and family problems, it is one that reveals how delicate the human heart can be and how easily even God’s children can be the subject of mockery, ridicule, hate and persecution caused by things they experience in life. It further reveals to what depths humankind is willing to go to hide the truth about their lives in order to preserve what we want others to believe about us.”

Candidly she remarks that this is consciously and unconsciously done without realizing the consequence attached to our actions. “I arrived at this conclusion because unfortunately some of the most tragic conflicts happen within the family. Those incidences include, but are not limited to domestic violence committed by parents and children, murder, jealousy that leads to numerous and often sad and disappointing outcomes, as well as a separation of the family and a brokenness of the relationship Christian families once professed to have with God.

My Son’s Wife reveals that even during the darkest moments of our lives, the worse mistakes we’ve made, the horrible suffering from the sins we commit, that God is all loving, and remains sovereign. He looks upon us and instead of seeing the filthiness of sin, He sees our hearts, our frailties, our weaknesses, and He loves us – still. His power of redemption and willingness to forgive us of our sins and cast them as far as the east is from the west, is a story that can calm even the savage beast.”

In closing I wanted our author to tell you what her hopes are for those who will read the novel. Without hesitation her response reached beyond the surface to touch my soul. “Do not allow the title My Son’s Wife misguide you because it addresses a number of family issues other than marriage. My Son’s Wife is the perfect book for parents, for young adults, for singles, for those who know God and for those who choose not to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior; this is a story that can pierce the toughest heart and penetrate the bitterness, the feeling of loss and failures of ordinary people, from ordinary means, in extraordinary situations and circumstances of life.”

This is basically a weak cervix that tends to dilate before the fetus has reached full term. Before wasting your expensive time on trying to get pregnant, you need to go through physical examination. An embryo that isn't dividing properly usually causes miscarriage.
