From the Publisher"Most couples desire a loving, supportive marriage in which husband and wife are helping each other reach their potential for God. However, many couples do not have a plan for creating such a marriage. In The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge, Jeff and Lora Helton provide a plan. I highly recommend it."
"Most men avoid 'talk about the relationship' conversations, fearing the inevitable feelings of inadequacy and unmet expectations. But Jeff and Lora Helton have developed 50 conversation starters that will have you relishing your time together. You’ll not only strengthen your marriage, you’ll have fun in the process!"
"50 Fridays is a fun and practical approach to strengthening marriages. Each challenge is thought provoking, intentional and encourages an opportunity for true intimacy. We've encountered first hand, Jeff and Lora's love and counsel in our own lives. What a treasure it is to now have access to their wealth of wisdom through this book. If you're willing to take the challenge, you will definitely be inspired to pursue the marriage God intended for you to have."
“I remember in real time the year that Jeff and Lora wrote these questions, one Friday after another, after another, after another. And I remember the change that God wrought in them, Jeff in particular, as I saw the very questions he was asking re-shape and refine his own heart. It will do the same for every couple who refuses the 'default mode' and chooses to take the challenge.”
"I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Sharon for 30 years. We’ve laughed, worked, played, talked and argued our way through some pretty incredible times, and trust me, it wasn’t always easy! Marriage is hard work, but it’s the best, most rewarding work I’ve ever done—and it’s something you need to work at, too. In The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge, Jeff and Lora will walk you and your spouse through a fantastic year-long discussion that will totally change your marriage!"
"I have had the privilege of knowing Jeff and Lora while they were on staff at our home church in Brentwood, TN. When my husband Stu and I were approaching the 20 year mark of marriage, we found the need to recalibrate and take some time to get to know each other again. With the constant pull of his work, our kids, and my years of traveling, we had come to a place of 'coasting'. We didn't want to be one of those couples whose kids went off to college and they sat staring at one another not knowing who each other were anymore. Many of the suggestions in this book are questions that Jeff had us ask each other. I think whether you have been married a year, 20 years, or 50 years, we could all use a tune up. Marriage is worth it."
"The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge is a fun way to use conversation starters for husbands and wives. They open the door for meaningful discussions in a non threatening way. Praying for and with one another is a way for your marriage to thrive and survive. Learning more about each other makes for a solid, exciting relationship. Lora & Jeff cover real issues with tried and true ways to have a strong , healthy marriage. We have enjoyed going through the book ourselves and to sharing it with those we are mentoring."
"The 50 Friday Marriage Challenge is a terrific adventure worth your time and focus! The Heltons have masterfully woven together 50 questions that will result in you growing closer to God and one another. My only complaint is that it’s two Fridays short of an entire year!"
