In the beginning, marriage doesn't seem as though it should be all that difficult. But it doesn't take long for trouble to seep in and for bad habits to become entrenched. Before long, many married couples may be wondering when the "worse" part ends and the "better" part starts.
Pastor and author Kevin A. Thompson has good news for couples: the "better" part is always within reach when they practice eight specific commitments to each other. These commitments have the power to solve almost any problem a marriage faces, and to prevent new ones from occurring. With biblical insights and engaging personal stories, Thompson shows couples how to see their marriage as bigger than themselves, avoid both apathy and aggression, release the desire for power, make and maintain peace, endure difficult times, and more. Perfect for newlyweds and for married couples at any stage of life, Happily is the gateway to a more loving, more joy-filled marriage.
My thoughts: Do you ever feel like your marriage is in a rut? Do you feel the passion waning? Than this book is for you! It's really for every marriage that wants to see improvement and intimacy, since it reminded me of the importance of working on my marriage and making it the best it can be. I appreciated the reminder to not let the busyness of life to turn us into strangers. All of the points in the book were excellent, but I really enjoyed the chapter living in truth. I highly recommend this one!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
