My Thoughts::
I had the chance to review this book, and I could not wait until it arrived. The cover, title, and author grabbed my attention almost immediately. I had heard great things about Gary Chapman and how he has helped a lot of marriages through his books.
This book was not only a joy to read, but it was a super easy read. It goes at a leisurely pace and at the same time I wanted to read on and on. You could read just a page a day, or more if you choose. It’s a great book for one to read alone or with your spouse.
The layout is so simple and to the point with one side being devotions and one side being scriptures relating to the devotion, or marriage in general.
The scriptures and passages from the bible were one of my favorite touches since it’s nice to touch base spiritually.
This book covers a multitude of topics from intimacy, communication, serving one another, forgiveness, being a better spouse, etc.
It also goes into detail about the five love languages which I found enlightening. Each of us speak a different love language and we don’t always realize this. Which is why women are often wondering why their husbands don’t understand them, and why men wonder why their wives don’t understand them. It’s inevitably up to us to learn our spouse’s love language and learn to speak it also. This will help make each other happy and make our marriage happier. By reading the book together most of the time with my husband I have learned that my husband communicates with physical touch and I communicate with quality time.
It’s a book that is enjoyable for both men and women alike, and perfect for any couple.
The book is in no way overbearing and instead of feeling like your being lectured about your marriage you will feel more like you are learning valuable tips.
The design of the book isn’t so small that it’s hard to hold, but it fits perfectly in one hand. It will fit easily into a purse, glove box, etc. I carry mine around in my purse and because the sections are so short and to the point I find it easy to read in a waiting room, doctor’s office, etc. There’s also a handy little ribbon attached that creates the perfect bookmark on the go. The cover and pages are very smooth and glossy which also creates a nice touch. Not the mention how appealing the cover is.
