Book Review

Many marriages in crisis have sought help through secular counseling with little to no real help in the 'real world' of our marriages. John and Stasi Eldredge have truly done their homework on "Love & War Devotional for Couples" because there are so many truths to what real marriages in crisis face and not just textbook answers to cookie cutter challenges. John and Stasi Eldredge have proven a genuine concern for God's love of marriage through "Love & War Devotional for Couples" and its poignantly proufound content. "Love & War Devotional for Couples" is both candid and gently honest when adddressing on the edge marital issues without unnecessarily adding fluff ot fill a page. Short and to the point daily devotions with weekly, doable exercises designed to soften hearts for the sometimes offending and/or clueless spouse is the brilliance behind this extraordinary devotional. In exchange, the reader, if not including their spouse, is challenged to face some of his or her own shortcomings in order to better understand the sometimes mysteriousness of God's plan to bring together opposites and how two exact pieces to a puzzle are pointless in the unity of a holy matrimony. Scripture is all over "Love & War Devotional for Couples" reminding us daily how much God is with us in every aspect of our marriages, the good with the bad as well as suggestive verses to focus on in the midst of our trials. As God reminds us to take a day of rest, this book is in tune with that concept by making sure readers have two days off to focus, reflect, work on and process the week's readings. Eight weeks of devotionas at nearly five minutes a day and only five days a week, even the busiest person has time to work on a new appreciation for saving their marriage. I received this book for free by Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review.

About Me

My photo
Anthem, Arizona, United States
I'm a caregiver to my husband who is permanently disabled. Life can be a bit challenging when it's not really about me at all. I've got two boys, 18 and 3 and they're both an added handful. I spend my spare time trying to keep from being bored and try to make it about me, life and socializing with others about how they spend their time. Hence, the birth of this blog!
