While I was recently in Bolivia Kevin White gave me a book. He said it was the best book on marriage that he had read.
Then I was with Pastor Archie Norman the other day on the south side of Atlanta and he said the book that he recommends for all of his couples to read is Love and Respect. Hearing the same advice twice starts to make you think.
I picked up the book and have given it a fast read. I want to suggest to all of our couples that you get a copy of the book.
The book talks about the love she most desires and the respect that he desperately needs.
The book has a simple message. A wife has one driving need, to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need, to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy.
When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negavitivly to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily and biblically.
Eveything you just read comes straight from the book cover. I do not think it is the solve all book but I believe that it could help you greatly. The book only costs $14.94 before shipping on Amazon. If you give me $15 I will order you the book without shipping or taxes. You can’t beat that.
It is a hard back with over 300 pages of helpful material.
I will be discussing this book with our leadership so I hope you will give it a shot!
