The Love and Respect Experience by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
We envisioned a marriage that danced beautifully and was a beacon of hope in a pessimistic age. We thought we were doing fine, just fine, with our steps. But sometimes, our feet became tangled up, and as we bent over to untangle the mess, the knot of frustration only got tighter. We asked: How did we get here in this knot of frustration? What can we do to untangle the knot? We did not want to get divorced, we thought, as this would mean that we were disobeying God! Were we to suffer and live in a silent house until we died? These thoughts did cross my mind in the first five years of marriage, however now our marriage is growing brighter with good friendly council and good books like Emerson Eggerichs Love and Respect Experience: A Husband Friendly Devotional.
Gentlemen, we often work more on our occupation than we do on our households. Why? We stay at work, because it is often easier or at least more understandable. As time goes by, our marriages end up in a heap of dusty debris. The devotional walks besides you like a friend. The meditations are great and can be read in less than ten minutes. Eggerichs guides you in a prayer after the meditation that helps through-out the week. Then the weekly action steps will help you put the meditations into a workable plan. The follow up questions can be used to learn from each other and discuss frustrations and joys.
My wife Jessica and I received a free copy from book-sneeze, and liked it so much that we actually bought one for her kindle. We have also recommended this book to our engaged friends Mike and Missy. We feel this book is great for any married couple, no matter how long they have been married.
