It was okay.

There were things that I really like about this book. I liked the back and forth play between the authors. I likes the general subject matter. I believe a lot of what they said was right on the mark. But I finished still wanting something else from the book. They seemed to dance between helping individual couples and describing overall church ministries.

I am going to have to review my notes before I write further.

There were things that I really like about this book. I liked the sharing of ideas and experiences of the two authors. The information provided was real, relevant and practical for young and even older couples. However, I would recommend it to couples who are thinking of having children in the near future and those with young children. In my view this book is an easy read and well worth the time.

Shelves: helpful
Written with young Christians in mind, possibly. No real meat. However, the writing style is witty. While I can't say I took away anything new for my marriage, I would definitely recommend this book for others. And there were some helpful parts that I highlighted to reflect on. I also enjoyed a long list of questions to discuss with my spouse.

Disappointing...Mr. Smalley's DNA of Relationships was topnotch & helped make sense of the world for me...so I thought, Why not? But this is like a longform magazine quiz: You might be a lousy lover if... Thanks. :-/ (That's harsh & there *is* more here, I know...)

hoping for some really great insight on how to make the marriage just as much of a priority as being a parent WITHOUT having to break the bank for babysitters -- anyone else feel the same way?

“Children raised in a couple-centered home more fully understand the gospel of Jesus Christ. God’s love manifested in marriage speaks more to kids than any Sunday school lesson or sermon. This truth is the essence of Ephesians 5:25. Marriage is used as a word picture for God’s love for the church. What is your marriage teaching your kids about Jesus?” 3 likes
