Making Marriage Beautiful (Review)
This review is for the book "Making Marriage Beautiful" by Dorothy Littell Greco. I thought this was a really great book, for all married couples, whether you are newlyweds or have been married for 40 years. We go through so many seasons in life, that no matter how long you have been married, you never have it totally figured out! You have to deal not only with each other's idiosyncrasies, opinions, and personalities, but life changes such as bad choices from children, horrible financial situations, loss of family members or pets, job changes, and health issues just to name a few.
This book takes scripture and the advice from eight real-life couples to guide you into a path of an honest marriage, how to acknowledge hurts and disappointments, think of how your cultural background affects your marriage, change unproductive patterns, and learn how to love sacrificially. Each chapter deals with something different, and then includes discussion questions at the end of the chapter to help you and your spouse dig deeper. This book was great at helping me take a look at myself, and think about ways I can change my point of view to be a better spouse. I would highly recommend it to all married couples!
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
