Lists To Love By For Busy Wives And Lists To Love By For Busy Husbands – Book Review
When I first got married, I was a starry-eyed bride who believed the cultural myth that “all you need is love” for your marriage to last – even though statistics seem to suggest otherwise.
Therefore, I was in for a rude awakening whenever my Prince was not as Charming as he was before I said “I do!”
Have you ever experienced the heartache of disappointment when the person you married doesn’t turn out to be quite the person you thought he or she would be?
Unrealistic expectations can erode away at marital love if left unchecked.
If the prince you married has turned into a frog – if your beautiful bride has turned into a bridezilla – then I invite you to strengthen and save your marriage by giving yourselves the gift of Lists To Love By For Busy Wives: Simple Steps To The Marriage You Want and Lists To Love By For Busy Husbands: Simple Steps To The Marriage You Want by Mark and Susan Merrill.
If you apply the information contain in these two books, you will learn how to transform your marriage into the life-long, nurturing and sustaining relationship you always dreamed it would be!
Each Lists To Love By book contains 30 lists filled with essential relationship information that you read on your own, action steps you take, and interactions you share with your spouse. As you each of you simultaneously go through the process, you both learn what your partner needs from your relationship and how to help one another meet those needs met in a way that affirms your relationship. In the process, as you apply the lessons you are learning, you grow closer and become better husbands and wives.
Mark writes in Lists To Love By For Busy Husbands:
We all bring expectations into marriage and develop expectations during the marriage. Our personalities, upbringing, experiences, and influences all shape those expectations. I had many expectations for Susan and myself that needed to change.
And that is the goal – to change the expectations that need to change.
What I love about the Lists To Love By books is that they are easy and fun to read and apply – they are educational and informative – and they truly speak to the heart of our relational issues. The authors are candid about sharing the things they have learned and worked through in their marriages and they are truly things you will relate to in your experiences as well.
In the Introduction to Lists To Love By For Busy Husbands, Mark writes:
Before marriage, opposites attract: however, many times after marriage, opposites attack. The things that once were cute and alluring can become the things that drive you the craziest.
That’s the beauty of Lists To Love By. The authors’ goal is to help us to renew our appreciation for the things that attracted us to our spouses and to help us celebrate the unique characteristics and differences that our spouses possess.
These books help us to become better husbands, better wives, better partners for life – and to recognize that true transformation begins not through others but through ourselves.
This Valentine’s Day, my husband and I are commemorating 19 years of marriage. One of the ways we are celebrating our love is by going through the Lists To Love By books together and sharing these books with other couples we meet.
We’d like to help you strengthen and grow your relationship too – so we encourage you to pick up copies of these wonderful books for yourselves and your friends, and to enter our giveaway!
I rate these books 5 out of 5 stars.
