Before kids, I worked as a therapist. In fact, my master's is in Counseling with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family. Bet ya didn't know that, huh?
This means that I love all these marriage books. I love seeing new ways to help couples improve their marriage.
I was excited to read this devotional. It is geared to be done as a couple over 8 weeks. Within each week there are 5 days of devotionals and at the end of the week there are "exercises" that the couple is encouraged to do.
Honestly, at first I was a wee bit disappointed in this devotional. Maybe I should have read the book that the devotional was based on (?). However, as I kept reading, I found what I was looking for. The Eldridge way of engaging men into the process of Marriage building.
Truly, as Solomon says in Ecclesiastes, "there is nothing new under the sun" and most authors understand that. What is different is the way the information is told. The Eldredges put their own spin on things that is often times very engaging.
I will give this a 4 out of 5.
