Norman Wright This book was awesome! We started this book once we were more serious as a couple. We would take a couple questions at a time — a great thing to take in the car when you are on your way to the movies, etc. This book asks questions about chore expectations, future children, fears, beliefs about baptism and communion, pet peeves and more. We had already answered most of the questions thanks to this book so there were no surprises.
I highly recommend reading this book before putting a ring on it! I loved reading this book and taking in so much knowledge about men, women, and our wacky relationships. This book explains why it can be so hard to communicate as a couple and how to make that communication better. I read this book and then shared different parts with Travis. This is another book I highly recommend.
The 5 Love Languages: It talks about five different love languages that we all have — some stronger than others — for how we give and receive love best.
This is a book Travis and I are currently reading through after taking the test to see what our top love language is. Norman Wright This is another book we received as a wedding gift, and we are currently reading through it together.
Travis and I will read one each day either before bed or in the morning, depending on our schedules. And if for some reason you get behind which we did!
This book has great insights and includes a Bible verse to go with each day. I highly recommend this book for married couples. I will probably use it as a wedding gift for some people I know. What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? That is the question this book is all about.
It is full of some really great insights into marriage. In fact, it inspired many of my marriage blog posts. Captivating is for women and Wild at Heart is for men. After a few years of marriage, Travis and I have both read these books.
We each read our own book, highlighting the parts that really resonated with us. Then we exchanged books and read them, noting the highlighted parts. It really helped us understand each other better! Marriage is an awesome commitment with so many benefits, but it also takes a lot of work by both partners. What other books on relationships do you recommend?
