Published by FaithWords Buy on Amazon
The founders of Family First, Mark and Susan Merrill, present a collection of lists created for the busy husband who wants a more intimate, fulfilling union with his wife.
Husbands and wives bring different personalities, upbringings, experiences, and expectations into their marriage, which can lead to miscommunication and emotional turmoil. LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY HUSBANDS presents practical dos and don'ts along with step-by-step advice for husbands who want to bridge the emotional gap and improve their marriage. Mark and Susan Merrill understand that couples crave love, but don't always know how to express it to one another. These thirty lists will carry husbands through an entire month of learning to love their wives more deeply--wisdom they will come back to again and again. These real-life answers from a Christian perspective will help readers evaluate, refresh, and strengthen their own marriage.
Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands is must read for newlyweds & seasoned couples. I tend to giggle to myself when people add #relationshipgoals under the comment section when I post a picture of my husband & I on Social Media. No married couple wakes up in the morning and floats over to their spouse on a magical cloud to say Good Morning. I don’t care what anyone says but Marriage is work. Some couples have to work harder than others, but it’s still work. There are times when couples get complacent in the marriage, and that’s when books like List to Love comes in handy.
The founders of the national non-profit Family First, Mark and Susan Merrill, gives readers step-by-step advice based on their research and experience. Before you open your mouth to say – “I don’t take advice when it comes to my marriage.” Think again!
I was surprised that my husband was receptive when it came to reading this book. I was prepared to read it myself and then do some exercises with him. He read this book first and then I read it after him. We also have a copy of Lists to Love By for Busy Wives. I read that too.
Even though we believed we knew each other like the back of our hands – we were able to learn more things about each other.
There are 30 lists to love by which includes: 7 Truths of Marriage, 3 Things to Remember About Marriage, 5 Ways to Woo Your Wife in the Bedroom and much more. Taking the Next Step is the discussion section where you and your spouse and take turns answering a question. This was a fascinating exercise to do together. You can read this book in one sitting, but I would suggest taking your time with this read. Either way, you will benefit from reading this book.
I highly recommend this book!
