This small, beautiful book from Gary Chapman provides small pieces of marriage advice coupled with encouraging Scripture verses. Dr. Chapman builds on his extensive experience as a marriage counselor to provide succinct yet powerful pieces of wisdom that couples can easily apply to their own relationships. Even busy couples can find a minute or two to read one of these mini devotionals and reflect upon the lessons within. This book made me feel encouraged and inspired in my relationship, as Dr. Chapman points out areas of weakness but also how to turn those weaknesses into strengths. I heartily recommend this book for any married couple.

Perfect devotional for couples Feb. 21 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My husband and I are constantly trying to connect spiritually. We have read many devotionals for couples and taken Bible studies together. We have learned a lot through most of them. Gary Chapman wrote this book to share God's promises for married couples. Gary Chapman wrote the bestseller The Five Love Languages that became very famous in the Christian realm. He is a pastor, counselor, and author who travels all over the U.S. speaking about marriage, family, and relationships. He really knows what he is talking about when it comes to marriage.

In Life Promises For Couples he really did an excellent job getting my husband and I to connect with God. Each little day of promises starts with a few scripture verses referring to that day's promise. Then, there is a 2-3 minute devotion. He speaks on patience, burdens, love, respect, strength, happiness, etc. I really enjoyed reading this little book. It encouraged me in my marriage and helped me to better understand how to have a better marriage according to the Bible. I recommend this book to married couples, old and new, and also those couples thinking of getting married. It would make a perfect engagement present or shower gift for the bride.

Life Advice for Couples Feb. 16 2012
By Sonya Jeffords - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The title to this book is quite deceiving. This book does not focus (in my opinion) on God's promises for couples, but rather, God's advice for couples. There are parts that are along the line of "promises," but for the most part this is a book of guidelines and advice for being husband and wife.

That said, this was an enjoyable book to read, and the advice contained was good advice, ranging anywhere from how to be a better listener to how to have better sex. Each even page has three scriptures on it, and on the odd pages there is a brief explanation of a simple way to improve your marriage relationship.

For example, on page 142 there are three scripture quotations, one of which is Proverbs 27:5-6 "An open rebuke is better than hidden love! Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. (New Living Translation)

Then on page 142 there are three paragraphs, and here is a brief quote from the last one: "Never assume that silence or indifference is preferable to conflict. It's not. Proverbs 27:5 makes it clear: sincerity is always better than buried feelings. Truthful responses can be painful, but they can also bring healing and genuine communication. As long as you and your spouse are interacting and actively trying to resolve your differences, there's hope."

I like this set-up, because it takes only a couple of minutes to read each individual lesson, and I think a good way to read this book would be one set of pages each day as a quick reminder to keep your marriage alive. The lessons do not seem to be in any particular order. Gary Chapman is the author of the Five Love Languages, and so he included aspects of that into this book also. I do not recall reading any advice from this book that went against what is taught in scripture. The advice in this book is well-worded and practical. Scriptures are used primarily from the New Living Translation, but also from the English Standard Version (ESV), the New International Version (NIV), the New King James Version (NKJV), the King James Version (KJV) and The Living Bible (TLB).

The physical quality of this book is very good. It is a hard-cover book, about 7 inches tall and 4 inches wide. There is a ribbon attached to the spine, which makes it very easy to keep track of what page you're on, since there aren't any numbered chapters. The small size makes it very convenient to carry around.

My only complaint about this book is that several times throughout scriptures were referenced but not included in the text. This might not have bothered me so much, except that so many scriptures were repeated in the book. My thought is that with so many scriptures being repeated, and the scriptures each applying to so many principles taught in this book, that the ones referenced could have been included and taken the place of some of the repeated scriptures.

Something I really like about the material is that it confirms scripturally what I just read from The Self-Centered Marriage: The Revolutionary ScreamFree Approach to Rebuilding Your "We" by Reclaiming Your "I". I think that reading these two books together, or one after the other, is a good combination.

I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale House in exchange for my honest review.

It is short essays with scriptures to re-enforce how we should treat ourselves and our mates. I have already recommended the book to friends.

This is the "book" that will show you how to have a God centered marriage and understanding how to make your partner happy no matter the circumstances.
Make sure to read it, and comment each message with your partner so both understand what is expected from each one.
It is excellent.
