5.0 out of 5 stars The "MUST HAVE" Tool for Marriage Mentors! Dec 29 2011
By Julie Sibert - Published on
I was fortunate to see an advance copy of Jeff and Chuck's book, "The Solution for Marriages."

I'm always fascinated by books that get beyond lofty theories and really get into the specifics of making positive changes that last. This book is true to that course... anyone who is already a marriage mentor or considering being one would definitely gain information and tools they could actually put to use.

Here's the bigger plus though -- we need more marriage mentors, and I think this book recognizes this. So many couples abandon their marriages too soon, without genuinely putting in the effort to strengthen their union and resolve difficulties. I think in part that's because they don't know where to turn... they are hungry for someone to show them a better path, but they don't know where to turn to get practical applicable advice.

If this book equips more mentors -- and I know it will -- then that's a good thing for all of us! Strong marriages make for stronger families and a stronger community.

Well done Jeff and Chuck!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Swiss-Army knife of marriage ministry tools! Dec 13 2011
By TJ - Published on
I was so excited to see this book released. I have been blessed personally by Jeff Murphy's heart to resource marriages and to train others to do the same. The Solution for Marriages is packed with Scripture, keeping the roots of every part of it pure. The forms and materials that supplement this book are free from their website so there are no financial limits to how many people you can mentor using this as a guide.

I am especially impressed how unlike other counseling books, this book is written with those with no formal training in mind (it doesn't seem to leave those educated out either). A Christian couple with no counseling training can take this book and have everything they need to begin mentoring. This makes it an excellent resource to equip more than just pastors to begin a marriage ministry in their church. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to mentor other marriages and to do pre-marital counseling with engaged couples. It has even helped my marriage as my wife and I reviewed it to begin mentoring.

I can't say enough good about it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful Resource For Anyone Wanting To Help Marriages Dec 8 2011
By Love to Read - Published on
I have read this book at least twice. I have found the information very informative and useful. It is amazing how you can help people if you are armed with the right information...and arming the marriage mentor with information is exactly what Jeff and Chuck have done with The Solution for Marriages.

More than just information, this book supplies the Biblical principles and foundation for which any marriage can stand upon to be successful. It doesn't matter if it is your marriage or someone else's marriage you are trying to help, this book will be of invaluable to you.

I particularly liked how the authors broke the book up so that information is easy to find. This has turned into one of my favorite reference books in my counseling, and I have been counseling and mentoring marriages for over ten years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Preparation Tool Dec 6 2011
By Regina - Published on
The Solution for Marriage is an excellent tool for pastors, mentors and for marriage ministry, it's also an excellent tool for engaged, married and single individuals, I, myself fit under "single individual", who's never been married, but desires to be one day. I found this book to be a useful tool in my preparation stage. The chapters that stood out for me, although all were useful, were Chapter 20: Handling Cultural Differences, Chapter 23: Protecting your Relationship - The Internet, Social Media and Friends and Chapter 24: The Biblical Roles of Husbands and Wives. Chapter 24 is to me the most important of all the chapters, because it gives a biblical role of what a husband and wife is suppose to be and gives scriptures to support and refer to. What was also very helpful was the additional scriptures and references at the end of each chapter. I HIGHLY recommend this book to not only pastors, ministers, engaged or married couples, but to the single who desires to be married one day. The best thing singles can do is to be prepared and be knoweledgable about the subject of marriage. I've been having a blast preparing for marriage by reading and studying and can't finally wait to be engaged/married when that time comes!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars A much needed tool for marriages Dec 5 2011
By James Mayer - Published on
I have known one of the authors for many years. He and his wife have modeled a God-honoring marriage and his insights, together with those of the co-author, will be a valuable help to those wanting to mentor couples planning to marry, couples needing help in their marriages and any couples willing to take a fresh look at their marriages to help make them even better. This book covers almost every topic you can think of relating to marriage with practical questions, observations and suggestions. It is not necessarily a book you will sit down and read at one sitting but one that you will meditate on piece by piece. If specific topics are of concern, those can be searched out and effectively used without having to read the whole book. It is a book that should have immense value to pastors, Christian leaders and any others who really care about helping make marriages better. Every marital family should have this book on their shelf, or better yet by their dinner table to be read daily.
