I LOVE to read books about marriage. Any tool that can help me in this crazy and wild ride called marriage, I’m the first one to sign up. This book: Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage by husband and wife team Greg and Erin Smalley wrote this book to help couples in their marriage by giving them 12 secrets for a lifelong romance.
In the book they share their testimony and give really great practical advice that doesn’t leave you feeling like its fault. At the same time, they share tips that are very selfless. Reading this book, I realized that I couldn’t go into thinking, What tips can I gain, so I can do it and reap the results. This book gives tips and advice that will change your heart and help you look inside yourself, so that your marriage as a whole benefits.
Along with the book
I checked out the website and with the book you can get Date night ideas, and while you’re reading the book you can download the Discussion guide as well. They even have a Marriage Assessment test to find out your strengths and weaknesses in the marriage.
Here’s a little about the book:
Every couple who wants a happy marriage will appreciate the revitalizing secrets in Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage. In it, Dr. Greg and Erin Smalley explore the traits of a healthy and thriving marriage.
Based on research of thousands of strong couples across the country, the twelve essential elements outlined are not only biblically based; they also chart a course for a romantic adventure that will last a lifetime.
With practical advice and stories from their own marriage and counseling experiences, Greg and Erin guide couples to find ways to work around roadblocks in their current relationship and to intentionally create communication patterns that will take them to emotionally safe places.
Yes, marriage can have its twists and turns. But the detours don’t necessarily have to lead couples off course. Greg and Erin help couples map out a journey for their marriages so that they can enjoy the passionate and intimate relationship that God has promised.
