Book Review: 9 Thoughts that Can Change Your Marriage by Sheila Wray Gregoire
In 9 Thoughts that Can Change Your Marriage, Sheila Wray Gregoire tackles several -- nine, to be exact -- misconceptions that we Christians bring into marriage. She refutes them practically and biblically in a winsome way.
I've read several marriage books recently, and they were all filled with practical, godly wisdom. But they were all written by men, and I didn't even realize what they were lacking until I read this book by Gregoire. Certainly, there is nothing wrong with books by men, but reading this book was like having tea with a friend who understands what I think and how I feel. I especially enjoyed it when I would read something and think, "You mean, I'm not the only one?"
Each chapter contains several suggestions that can help to improve your marriage, if of course, you follow them. I appreciated the listing of these suggestions at the end of each chapter for an easy reference later on instead of having to search through every chapter.
Even if you have a great marriage, I'm willing to bet that you could improve it even a little bit by reading this book.
I want to thank Blogging for Books for my review copy of this book, but my opinions are my own.
First, I am a child of God, adopted into His family through the blood of His Son Jesus Christ. Second, I am helpmeet to my husband John of sixteen years. Third, I am mother to Sarah Beth who is ten years old, to Daniel who turned nine in February, to Rachel who turned seven at the end of January, to Mary who turned five in December, and to Hannah who turned one in February.
