    Great Marriage Devotional

    I've had the wonderful opportunity to read and review this wonderful book. I've been looking for sometime for a book that will help strengthen my marriage and help me draw closer to my husband. I've found that in this book. Designed to read once a week with or without your spouse. Takes less than 30 minutes and what a benefit it will do.

    Help build your relationship and your communication skills with your spouse. Help with your emotional and spritual intimacy. This was written with busy schedules in mind. Includes a little reading about that week's topic, discussion questions, Bible Scripture references, Faith Conversations to help strengthen your communication and practical action steps to allow you to take one step closer to becoming an intimate marriage.

    The topics discussed are well worth the time spent on them including trust, regrets, being selfish, forgiveness, purity and much much more..

    I would highly recommend this book to any married couple, young or old, just married or married for 50 + years. You will learn so much with this and build a lasting bond with one another that will last a lifetime.

    We are already "closer" thanks to this book!

    My copy of Closer arrived in the mail yesterday. My husband and I started our first chapter last night. This book fits our lifestyle very well. My favorite aspect of the book is that the chapters are short and sweet, but jam packed with thought provoking information allowing us to spend more time talking with each other rather than reading for a long time. Great book! Would recommend it to any newly married couple trying to create their own life and better their marriage.

    Amazing and appropriate for all marriages

    Closer: Devotions to Draw Couples Together

    By: Jim Burns, Cathy Burns

    Bethany House

    I found this devotional amazing.I have never read a book by the Burns, but I want to read more after reading this one. The devotionals were laid out exceptionally well, they were short and very direct in where you need to go. As well the conversation starts were very helpful and really made you consider your answers. This is a devotional that was easy for us to get through with each devotional topic being for a week time-frame and with our hectic lives we never really have the daily time to devote, but are able to consider things through the week to bring back to our marriage.

    The activity I enjoyed the most was actually writing out how we first met through today. We have been together for a little over 12 years and though we still talk about it, we never had never really written it down. This is something that I plan to pass down to my kids as the grow older. This is appropriate for dating through longtime married couples.
