Review:

A great book! It is definitely a refresher course on marriage and the commitments we make to one another. Time passes and things change, this book helps us to understand that it’s okay as long as we are continually working on our marriage. We all make mistakes, we all have bad days, but when the going gets tough we have to remember that we are in this marriage thing together. We are a partnership and we need to remember that.

The author starts at the very beginning, the story of Adam and Eve. He walks us through the beginning of sin and deceit and how it affects us today. Our relationships are important, and we made a vow to work together through thick and thin. He has a lot of insightful information throughout the book, tips and tricks and ways to get your marriage back on track, things to do to  help with any conflicts. At the end of each section, there is a set of questions to really help you remember what you just read and to take evaluation of your life and relationship with your partner.

This book is so full of information. It’s full of ways to improve communication and ways to be honest to each other. It truly has a little something for everyone. Even if you are not married, it is still a great book to read. It’s a great reminder to be open and honest in any relationship.

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
