This was a fantastic book. It was easy to read and had a ton of great information along with easy to apply lists at the back of each chapter. It is a book that not only gives you great ideas to apply to your marriage to make it better, but it explains how it can affect your relationship and also gives you easy to apply methods to implement the changes. Very well rounded and user friendly. I highly suggest every couple pick up and read this book. Everyone can pull a thing or two out of it (if not more) to better their relationship. One thing I have applied and it h as helped a ton is the recommendation to wake up "naturally"(no alarm clock) 2-3 days a week. This hasn't been the easiest to implement, but has made such a difference in my energy level and how healthy I feel during week. Happy Reading!

I love a good marriage book. I'm always looking for ways to savor and spice up my marriage. And this book is definitely that! As a mom of littles, it's easy to only have your exhausted, annoyed, don't-touch-me side left for your husband at the end of each day. Mothering is amazing work, but it's also tiring and hard and emotional and a whole slew of other things. So what gets pushed to the back burner? Our marriages. And one day, our children will move out and too many of us will have to get to know our spouses all over again. I don't know about you, but I don't want to ever stop knowing my husband. I want to always know him, to always love him, to always support him, to always desire him. And that may sound unrealistic, but with energy, effort and love, (and JESUS!) it is possible! And this book will definitely help too! In their insightful, new book, Stephen and Misty Arterburn present 7 secrets to lifelong passion in marriage. The secrets of Attunement, Playfulness, Savoring food, Enjoying beauty, Creativity, Health and longevity and Blending the sacred and the sexual. If you're willing to put in the work to implement these 7 secrets, this book will help transform your marriage in the best way. Buy it! Read it!

The Mediterranean Love Plan is more than a practical how-to book for how to make good marriages great. The authors lay out seven intrinsic, emotional, and spiritual principles that make marriage the relationship we all crave but don't know how to obtain. The principles are critical to a vibrant marriage. As a therapist, I'm aware how many marriages simply survive or get by. That's not what you long for when saying, "I do." God intends for marriage to be as beautiful, colorful, and breathtaking at the French Riviera. The authors bring the magic of Mediterranean cultures to the daily lives of the average couple for connection and a deeper relationship.
