Lifelong Love Affair: How to Have a Passionate and Deeply Rewarding Marriage Reviews
This book was a gift given to me by my husband in 2013 while we had been separated for 3 months at that time I was not allowing myself to forgive or to love him, so I did not read the book. After we reconciled and recommitted to our marriage and allowed our Lord Jesus Christ in our hearts, I have now finished reading the book. It is so encouraging and amazing to read stories and actually learn about the purpose of marriage. I believe God designed marriage for a purpose and he provide a manual "The Bible" on how to carry it out and live our lives. I am very blessed to have a godly husband and thank God everyday for His beautiful gifts.
The subtitle to the book explains exactly what you will take away from this book if you take the time to read it. The subtitle says “How to have a passionate and deeply rewarding marriage.” I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the purpose of the book was well thought out and followed through on. I liked the examples and stories chosen to highlight a principle the author was presenting. I especially enjoyed the way the book was written. I did not feel preached to in any way! It was written from one friend who has learned ways to enhance a marriage and given to anyone who wants their marriage to grow in the Lord. I would recommend this book for all engaged and married couples.I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
Lifelong Love Affair delivers on its title. Every chapter wove scripture, personal examples, and the experience of Jimmy Evans to encourage couples to give their marriage their best. This book never felt preachy nor did the advice feel out-of-reach.We live in a world where marriage is threatened on multiple-levels. That's why focusing on God's vision for marriage is so vital to today's husbands and wives. I loved this book. It offers clear instructions on how to improve your marriage and even gives exercises for couples to do in a group or on their own. I'm adding one of Jimmy's previous books, Marriage on the Rock, to my to-be-read list!
Just finished chapter 6 on Vision Retreats! Great concept, every marriage should do this! If you do pre-marital counseling YOU MUST CHECK out this book...every marriage needs to know this stuff!!Feb.18th...just finished chapter 12...two servants in agape! Two quotes from this chapter are: It is far more important to be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right kind of person. Zig Ziglar And A happy marriage is the union of two good fogivers. Ruth Bell Graham We are planning our vision retreat for a weekend in March.
Uf! I hard a hard time swallowing this pill by Chapter 4; at points I wanted to throw the book across the room! Upon finishing it, I feel as though I got the initial sting of it out of my system; I found myself wanting to read it again to take better notes and be more reflective. That has to account for something!
Great book! Marriage takes work to keep together and this book helps!
Learned a lot
