Living in our fast paced society it is very hard to find time to sit down and read a book. However, if you’re a married man I would highly suggest that you find the time to read Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands. It is a quick and easy read that provides practical advice and tips to be a better husband. Every minute spent reading this book is worth it!

Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands is a companion book to Lists to Love By for Busy Wives. It presents practical dos and don'ts along with step-by-step advice for husbands who want to improve their marriage. It contains real-life answers and recommendations from a Christian perspective. Each Lists to Love By book contains thirty lists. I like the way these books have been designed. I like the idea of reading and applying a chapter a day for a month, The text of both books are generally the same. I think there should be a special if you buy both of them. Each book is written from the viewpoint of the spouse so there is some content that is specific to each gender. For example there is a chapter on pornography for men and a chapter on hardening your heart for women. Some of the topics I found the most useful were: The texts to send your spouse. What he really means when he says this... Things you should never say to you wife. How to affair proof your marriage. They recommend knowing the love language of your spouse which I have found helpful. It is a fast easy read. You can read it with your spouse to see what resonates with them even if they are not willing to read it. There are questions that you can ask each other to discuss further and learn more about each other, again even if your spouse doesn’t want to read the book they man participate in the questions and discussion. I received this book from NetGalley. I was not required to write a positive review. You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.

Is one of your New Year's resolutions to improve your marriage? I recently got a chance to review two companion books that may help. Mark and Susan Merrill understand that couples crave love, but don't always know how to express it to one another which can lead to miscommunication and emotional turmoil. As the founders of the national non-profit Family First, Mark and Susan wanted to share the practical dos and don’ts along with step-by-step advice based on their own research and experience. Their books, LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY HUSBANDS and LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY WIVES, present a collection of lists created for those wanting a more intimate, fulfilling marriage. The books are a series of concise lists, things like how to understand your spouse, how to show each other that you love each other, how to resolve conflict. Each list provides a brief explanation of each item on the list, and how it really affects a relationship. The books are relatively short, so they work well for a quick read, a reference point on a particular topic, or for couples to read together. Both books are very similar, with about 90% of the material the same. Each book has one chapter that is completely different, and the explanations are targeted slightly towards different genders, but for the most part, both the husband and wife will get about the same message. The only part of the book I wasn't in total agreement with was the opinion of the authors on physical intimacy; however, nearly all of the topics will be universally appropriate for all marriages.

Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands is must read for newlyweds & seasoned couples. I tend to giggle to myself when people add #relationshipgoals under the comment section when I post a picture of my husband & I on Social Media. No married couple wakes up in the morning and floats over to their spouse on a magical cloud to say Good Morning. I don't care what anyone says but Marriage is work. Some couples have to work harder than others, but it's still work. There are times when couples get complacent in the marriage, and that's when books like List to Love comes in handy. The founders of the national non-profit Family First, Mark and Susan Merrill, gives readers step-by-step advice based on their research and experience. Before you open your mouth to say - "I don't take advice when it comes to my marriage." Think again! I was surprised that my husband was receptive when it came to reading this book. I was prepared to read it myself and then do some exercises with him. He read this book first and then I read it after him. We also have a copy of Lists to Love By for Busy Wives. I read that too. Even though we believed we knew each other like the back of our hands - we were able to learn more things about each other. There are 30 lists to love by which includes: 7 Truths of Marriage, 3 Things to Remember About Marriage, 5 Ways to Woo Your Wife in the Bedroom and much more. Taking the Next Step is the discussion section where you and your spouse and take turns answering a question. This was a fascinating exercise to do together. You can read this book in one sitting, but I would suggest taking your time with this read. Either way, you will benefit from reading this book. I highly recommend this book! (Orsayor)

Lists to Love By for Busy Husbands: Simple Steps to the Marriage You Want is a book with practical marriage advice by Mark and Susan Merrill. The author covers topics such as the importance of marriage, using encouraging words, having fair expectations, (not) hardening your heart, forgiving, and understanding yourself. The chapters are written in paragraph format, but they include helpful lists. For example, Chapter 16 (or List 16) is called “8 Expectations for a Great Marriage” and includes eight things to expect during your marriage, such as expecting to disagree and expecting to be annoyed – with each of these expectations explained with a paragraph. Some of the chapters are more serious than others, such as “6 Things to Do When You’re Lonely in Marriage,” while others have more of a fun feel, such as “10 Texts to Send to Your Wife in the Next Ten Days.” Though everyone is bound to find some advice they do not like in a marriage book, the authors do deliver sound, sensible advice. The end of each chapter offers relevant discussion questions. The title says that the book is geared for busy husbands – and the good thing about the book is that it really is geared for busy people! If you’re having a busy day, this is the kind of marriage book that you could easily pick up for a few minutes and reflect on. *I received this book for review*
