Are you a Christian with an unbelieving spouse? Author Nancy Meyer tells Dennis Rainey how she continues to love, honor, and serve her unbelieving husband.
After five years at Lancaster Bible College and Millersville University, Nancy graduated with a BS in Bible, ACSI Christian Teacher Certification, and PA State Teaching Certification K-8. One week later, she married Rich Meyer, her very own Prince Charming.
Just before their daughter Becky turned a year old, Rich stopped going to church and moved toward agnosticism. Add dwindling love, career changes, and disrest in the home, and Nancy became desperate enough to seek counseling. A few months and many little changes later, Nancy moved from intellectual knowledge of God’s truth to obediently experiencing that truth—and Rich responded. Despite their spiritual division, love came back and grew stronger every day.
October of 1997, God sent Nancy to her first Christian writers conference with several inspirational romance novels. Once there, however, He rerouted her to non-fiction and she came home to ask Rich if she could write about their story and her faith. Rich read the article Nancy had written at the conference and told her that if she could help women stick in difficult marriages and keep families together she could share anything. And he stands by that promise today. Since then, Nancy has written two books with Moody for wives (Beyond Expectations: Finding Joy In Your Marriage) and couples (Talk Easy, Listen Hard: Real Communication for Two Really Different People) and a book with NavPress for spiritually single moms.
Nancy lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, Rich, a human resources manager with Dean Foods.
