Most Helpful Customer Reviews
What a lovely, useful book! Author Debra Fileta is a trained Marriage Therapist. She writes and offers advice from the heart. The title of the book says it all, Choosing Marriage: Why It Has to Start with We > Me, In a time when many people have been convinced that ME is so important this book is a refreshing reminder that WE is what provides lasting satisfaction. WE provides more meaning, more growth and more value. Whether you are happily married like me or struggling in your marriage, this book will lift you up and offer some beautiful tips to grow within your marriage.
Debra does an phenomenal job of writing a book on marriage that relates to the most seasoned married couple or to the single who hasn't even experienced it yet. For me, it was an eye-opening book about the things I need to be focusing on and preparing myself for in this season of singleness. Even though there isn't an "one size fits all" approaching to preparing for marriage, I believe Debra's book can speak deeply to your heart in any season that you are in to help you grow closer to Christ and learn more about yourself. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who wants to grow in their marriage, their engagement or their singleness as they await marriage.
