Everything you’ve been taught about relationships is wrong.

The movies and TV make it look easy. Matchmaking Web sites have it down to a science. Two people connect—love at first sight—and the relationship is magical from then on. But the truth is, strong, deep relationships that last a lifetime aren’t based on the mysterious chemistry of two personalities. Real love in rel

I wasn't sure I would like this book when I began. After all, I'm not married (but I hope to be within a few years!). Right away, I realized that the authors had done a fantastic job of including more than the marriage relationship. What they teach you applies to all relationships. They base all their advice on sound Biblical and relational principles.

I will tell you that I did not actually do their suggested daily assignments in the book. I think that this book would be great for a small group

Kerry Shook is one of my favorite TV preachers and well, being married to a Pastor myself, I was anxious to receive and get started on Kerry & wife Chris's book, Love at Last Sight. My husband and went through this together, hoping for something new, but you know that old saying, there's nothing new under the sun, just different ways to look at things, well, I'm not sure this was even a different way for me to look at deepening my relationship with my dear husband. However, this is a 31 day ...more

This is one of those books that had so many good points that its hard for me to pick just a few out. The whole premise of the book is deepening relationships into "love at last sight" relationships instead of just "love at first sight" relationships. It can apply to marriage, friendship, child/parent relationships, etc. I just finished it after borrowing it from the library, and I feel like I want my own copy now so I can highlight things and go back and reference certain chapters again. I defin ...more

When I chose this book to review I thought it was going to be about marital relationships. So immediately I had to re-ajust my thinking. It is about ANY relationship - parents, friends, spouse, etc.
Each chapter begins with quotes that deal with relationships and ends with a challenge based on the chapter just read.

The best part about this book were the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I felt that the book was very "fluffy" and I could (and did) easily skim through each chapter to get the

Do you want to deepen your closest relationships? That may be a stupid question because I don’t know anyone who doesn’t. The difficulty lies in that it’s, well, difficult. There’s no special sauce or secret formula. It does take one day at a time and recently I discovered a lot of other practical principles to do so from Kerry and Chris Shook’s book Love at Last Sight: Thirty Days to Grow and Deepen Your Closest Relationships.

Maybe I shouldn’t have used the word “principles” because the Shooks a

I received Love at Last Sight for free through a reading program with Waterbrook Multnomah and am not required to give a positive review. Love at Last Sight is written by married couple Kerry and Chris Shook. Does that mean that because a couple wrote a book on improving relationships it will be a good and well written book? Surprisingly it did. The Shooks are religious counselors/pastors of a church and happily married for 25 years. The book is a "to-do" book it is divided up into four weeks wi ...more

"Love at Last Sight: 30 Days to grow and deepen your closest relationships" by Kerry & Chris Shook is a 30 day Christian devotional that teaches the reader how to deepen relationships. Each day starts with quotes, then stories from the authors' lives and supporting scripture with the day's lesson. Each day is followed with a Challenge, which is three homework assignments.

The Shooks have a distinct writing voice. In fact, I have a daily devotional e-mailed to me that is different excerpts fr

Its practical and very helpful. The 30 days reading plan works well with someone who doesn't really have much time reading. I just read one chapter every morning along with my devotional, and thats it, but its very encouraging... It reminds me to keep prioritizing the 'right' things in life!

What a fantastic book. I flew right through this book. I absolutely love what Chris and Kerry Shook describe as "love at last sight." I was inspired by everything throughout this book and got a lot of great tips out of it. It's not only going to help improve my marriage, but my friendships, my family relationships with my parents, my daughters, my siblings, and more. It was a wonderful book and its the second of their books that I've really enjoyed. They got life down, these two. Keep up the goo ...more

I am not usually game for a self-help/relationship books but I feel like this was actually applicable. Many of the concepts they talk about should be common sense but are more the things we are blinded by when in relationships and friendships. Although it use at least one bible verse in every chapter, it was not overly preachy and used them simply as short supporting arguments.

Recommends it for: people working on growth in their relationships
Recommended to Linette by: a church we visited
This book had good points, encouraging you to think about what you spend your time on. We often don't nurture the relationships that are important with the time they deserve. I wasn't able to overly relate to this book, so burned out on day 14. I plan to someday come back to it. Nonetheless, it is a good refresher for somebody in a healthy relationship to help you re-focus.

I didn't realize this was a Christianity-based book (not for me) when I grabbed it off the shelf at the library, but there's some good, realistic relationship advice here.
Wendy Hollister
although written with heavy religious references, I believe that this book is helpful in working through personal issues. The foundation and philosophy is a healthy one to adapt.

Great book....just not an easy one to embrace if you have not so great relationships in your life...but definitely need to read this one more than once.
I'm doing this with a Women's bible study. So far so good.
