    A Personal blueprint for you and your loved one!

    'Preparing for Marriage' is quite an excellent book for couples to obtain prior to taking that walk down that aisle into marriage! I've always bought copies of this book(2 copies each), for my christian friends at my home church, First Covenant, who are planning to tie the knot! They have all expressed to me that this is a wonderful book! In fact, I've bought 2 copies of the book for myself, and for whomever God will bless me with! I wholeheartedly recommend this book for any christian couple looking towards being married! Thank you for allowing me to write a review on this outstanding book!

    A Must Do!

    My fiance and I have been using this book throughout our engagement. It has been so incredible and enlightening that I am about to order a bunch to send to friends, most of whom are single! I think it is an incredible resource in preparing for married life as well as looking for what you want in a life partner. Enjoy!

    Think your relationship may be serious? Get this workbook...

    My wife and I went through this book when we were engaged. As a result of the lessons, we saved ourselves from more hurt and anguish than could ever be imagined. This book will bring out the best and the worst in you and it will help you both to discover God's will in your relationship. Communication is the key, and this book makes it very difficult for you to not communicate with each other. Start your relationship on the right path and work through this book together. God Bless!!
