So, obviously, I have overloaded myself with book reviews/blog tours...but this is the time of year that you can find so many good books to enhance your marriage...I have a gaggle (can you call a bunch of books a gaggle?!) of books to review for you today...
The first is:
I Do Again
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 mean, SERIOUSLY. Who wouldn't want to read this book?! As couples, isn't this your greatest fear? That your spouse would have an affair? Well, this is real stuff...and their marriage survived...and marriages survive worse than this every day. I haven't finished reading this book yet, but I can highly recommend it already.
"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."
"Love As A Way Of Life" Devotional
"In his book Love As a Way of Life, best-selling author Gary Chapman shows readers how to cultivate a new lifestyle built around the seven characteristics of authentic love. Now in a companion devotional, he provides ninety inspirational readings to help Christians consistently live out the characteristics of love in every relationship.
Each devotional entry showcases biblical truths that guide a life of love, offering fresh insight and practical guidance in how to make love a lasting habit. Over the course of three months, readers will learn to follow God’s lead as they practice the characteristics of a loving person: kindness, patience, forgiveness, courtesy, humility, generosity, and honesty."
Um, hello? Dr. Gary Chapman? I love this man! The first book I read was before Steve and I got married and I read his Five Languages of Love book. FABULOUS! And this is a devotional book...so, you can use it in your quiet time...I obviously haven't read it because it's a 3-month book but I think the author says lots about this book. AND...if you don't need a devotional, this book will make a perfect gift for any occasion (like an ANNIVERSARY!)
"For Couples Only" Box Set
"Since their debut, these revolutionary guides have sold well over a million copies, been translated into fifteen languages, and sparked much fascinating water-cooler conversation around the country. Now together in the For Couples Only boxed set, these books provide the perfect resource to help you understand what you never knew about the woman or man in your life.
Each volume is based on input from more than a thousand members of the opposite sex—including an unprecedented nationwide survey and hundreds of personal interviews. This innovative approach yields candid and surprising answers about everything you don’t “get” about your significant other—even what that person deeply wishes you knew. It also produces simple but groundbreaking awareness of how you can best love and support the one who is most important to you."
