Marriage by Design By: Eric A. Disney

Marriage by Design serves as a healing salve to wounded marriages--as well as a warning to those beginning their matrimonial journey, and couples anywhere in the spectrum--offering hope and encouragement to those who want to revitalize, refine, or completely restore their relationships. Marriage by Design is loaded with practical tools and exercises designed to shed light on unhealthy modes of behavior and their motivations; it also challenges some of the beliefs we carry from childhood that can impact our current relationships.

Marriage by Design begins by establishing God's foundation in marriage and moving through a systematic building process, enabling couples to apply scriptural-based techniques and concepts to their own marriages. If you're looking to change a relationship based on inconsistent emotions and experience the freedom produced by intentional living--to move your marriage from stuck to stupendous--Marriage by Design is the tool you've been missing!

My Review

Marriage by Design

By: Eric A. Disney

What is marriage? Marriage is a gift from God. God didn't want us to be alone so he made woman for man. Very important to fulfill a healthy need in the relationship.  Marriage was also meant to be permanent commitment to one another before God. When one suffers in a relationship so does the other. Husband is to be the head of the wife as God is to the church. I do agree with a lot of this chapter.  Getting into submission I have been in church breakups over this topic. In our home God is our head and husband has final say but we always talk together on things.  I have seen women treated awful  when it comes to this some pastor wives. They have got it all wrong. I don't walk behind I walk beside my husband.  we have had a wonderful marriage for almost 37 years so I would say we are doing something right. God is our head! Marriage is laying a foundation for hope, faith and trust.

I love all the scripture to back everything up. The exercises to do at the end and a page for notes. This is just one of the many subjects Eric Disney goes over.  Did a great job researching. I would say greatest resource probably was the Bible. Other topics are 1. Expectations 2. Selfishness 3. Feelings and Behavior 4. Forgiveness 5. Building Foundation of Intimacy 6. Differences Between Us 7.Communication 8. Communication and Conflict 9.Forgiveness Revisited 10. Money and Marriage 11. Sex and Respect 12. Children 13. All about me 14. Issues of Past 15. Be Encouraged.  Lots of help to help any married couples.  I have been married 37 years and what we do works for us and Christ is our head of our home. Lot of what the author says is already a factor in my marriage.  I do believe any couple using this guide it will help as long as you have the first part of the program and that is Christ.

I was given this book by the author for my own honest opinion.
