Customer Reviews of Devotions For A Sacred Marriage: A Year of Weekly Devotions for Couples

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich wisdom fills these pages! This devotional stands alone just fine for me as I have not read the book yet. It presents new challenging ideas about how to live a holy life in marriage. It's rare that I can get my husband to participate in this weekly devotional so I often read it alone. This book has influenced my daily thoughts and has made marriage easier for me because of a greater more God centered understanding that I am developing as I read it. Each segment begins with a scripture that compliments the topic. It uses short engaging stories to illustrate common areas of misunderstanding in marriage. I was concerned about the once a week format but have grown to love it because the lessons can have time to sink into your mind and be applied in your own life.
