A must read for anyone who is married
Reviewed in the United States on August 9, 2019
I don't know about you but I was wasn't taught anything about relationships let alone marriage. I had my parents marriage as my example as while they are good people who love each other - affection/date nights were not displayed or done in our house. I came to Christ in my early 30's where I started to understand the importance of marriage as I began a relationship with God. Marriage is not easy. Marriage is hard work - every single day but it's one that's worth fighting for. This book is filled with so much goodness inside of it. From page one I was hooked with just how important it is to keep my marriage a priority and to keep the fire burning in our intimate moments.
I love the way Sharon Jaynes breaks down the Book of Solomon, explaining the scripture and what Solomon and His Bride's courting and marriage looked like. Some of my favorite quotes from the book are:
"Your spouse should always be your best friend. That one person in your life with whom you can share your deepest longings and greatest fears."
"A good marriage doesn’t just happen. It takes intentionality and creativity to weave commonalities into a life that is intertwined beyond unraveling."
"Being able to forgive past offenses and let go of past hurts is an essential component for growing a strong marriage and maintaining an intimate relationship that lasts a lifetime."
"Men are taught to be tough and thick-skinned. But they crave admiration and are attracted to sweet words of encouragement like bees are to honey."
Buy the book. Invest in your marriage.
