A Lifelong Love By: Gary Thomas

Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together.

Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. You will understand how living for that day will so radically transform the decisions you make this day. And Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.

Thirty years of study and two decades of working with couples has led Gary Thomas to his most significant book yet on the relationship between husband and wife. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about—and why A Lifelong Love is sure to challenge the way the church talks about marriage.

 My Review

A Lifelong Love

By: Gary Thomas

In this book Gary Thomas gives us practical tools we can use to help our marriage. I think this book would be great for new to older marriages. God can always work in a marriage as long as we are willing to try to make it work.  In the very beginning he talked about how we come into the marriage is it a obsession? If so usually will end up getting bored with one another in a short period of time. This can change having Christ in the relationship.  God says love your wife as Christ loves the church.  If we yield our hearts to God we will have marital satisfaction.  Because with God's grace will strive to do what is right and worthy of His praise. Gary uses many stories to show different issues and ways we should be going to be honoring to Christ.  I liked the questions at the end of each chapter gave you something to think about.  this could be a good book for the couple to do together. I know from my own experience our marriage went in the right path when we let God be the head of it. Plus we are equally yoked. Great book.

 I will be giving away one hardback copy!
