Marriage ministry is dear to my heart. My husband and I feel very strongly about being involved in sharing our story with other couples and working on growing our own marriage through Christ.
I was excited to receive the book More Than A Match from WaterBrook Multnomah for review. We recently began a Marriage Sunday School Class and we had a hard time finding curriculum for the class. Although this book does seem to be geared more toward singles and soon to be marrieds, there is still pieces to be pulled for all couples. It focuses on 5 keys to Compatibility for Life. I have always felt that my husband and I will continue to help other couples in their marriage journey so this book was a great one to add to our library.
Here is a summary of the book from Waterbrook Multnomah. You can check out more on the book and purchase it here.
Prepare Yourself for Lasting Love
You’ve searched a lifetime for that special person, but how can you be absolutely certain that you’ve found “The One”? And more important, how can you hold on to that love for the rest of your life?
More Than a Match explores the “compatibility factor,” demystifying the science behind matchmaking and giving you the tools you need to find the love you want. You’ll learn how to apply the specifics of good compatibility to a prospective date or mate, as well as how to break things off when you find yourself in the wrong relationship.
But since great relationships aren’t built on compatibility alone, marriage experts Michael and Amy Smalley also delve into the “forever factor,” giving you the skills you need to turn your romance into a lifelong love affair. You’ll learn how to deal with conflict, how to develop a healthy sex life, and how to recover when you inevitably hurt one another.
Fantastic marriages begin long before the exchange of the rings; they start when two people in search of love commit themselves to learning to how to love well…and forever. Because finding and keeping the love of your life is about much More Than a Match.
Another book that was sent to me from Waterbrook Multnomah is 99 Bible Promises for Tough Times. If you are like me, when you are really looking for a scripture on a specific topic, you can't find it. This book is a great reference book for topics such as Financial Difficulties, Poor Health, and Challenges at Work to name a few. This pocket size book will be easy to fit right into my bible case.
Here is more information on the book. If you would like to purchase the book, you can do that here.
When life throws a curve, for centuries no source of insight and encouragement has brought more comfort than the Bible. 99 Bible Promises for Tough Times is a collection of the deepest wisdom found in Scripture.
