Put Love and Respect in Your Marriage

I’ve been a fan of the Love and Respect concept ever since I read the book by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs called “Love & Respect Workbook: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needsir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1591453488.” So, when I was given the chance to review the The Love & Respect Experience: A Husband-Friendly Devotional that Wives Truly Loveir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B005E7AMS4 I jumped at it.

This book has honestly and truly been one of the most beneficial self-help, marriage saving, books I’ve ever read. I read this book a couple of years ago. I NEVER realized how little respect I was showing to Del. It definitely wasn’t intentional by any means. Thank God above that Del has known me (going on 19 years come April 3rd) for so long and knows the core of me and my intentions. Otherwise, I do declare my marriage would NOT have survived as long as it has.

This book honestly and truly helped me change my view points and I LEARNED A LOT!!! So when the opportunity presented itself for me to do a review on the devotional I counted down, marked on my calendar and made darn certain I was one of the first ones to get the chance to read this devotional.

However, having a baby and all of life’s obstacles has made squeezing in time to do luxury items like reading really hard to do. This authors intentions is definitely to make wives see things in a different light without making us wives feel like we are the most horrible people on earth. If you’ve read ANY of my blogs, you will know I am an emotional person and when it comes to matters of the heart I tend to be a extremely sensitive.

As it turns out the devotionals are very short and easy reads. He also provides wonderful devotional questions to ask yourselves when your done. It gives you some honest recommendations on HOW to read these devotionals. In my case, my husband doesn’t do devotionals, but he does listen to what I talk to him about when I ask him for his full attention. So, in our case, he gives his feedback based off what I may read to him and ask him from the discussion questions. EVERY couple has a system that will work for them that is unique to their marriage. This devotional actually gives the couple the chance to actually make it work for them with ease.

I definitely recommend this devotional. Even if you honestly think your marriage is in a great place, trust me when I say there is always room for improvement. A solid marriage is one in which both spouses take the time to WORK at it. I hear so many couples complain about their spouses issues, but yet don’t look in the mirror at their own faults.

You can get both of these books on Amazonir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1591451876. There is even a workbook ir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1591453488 that goes with the first book. Let’s save our messy beautiful love by putting forth some effort into our marriages together.

Do you think you show your husband enough respect? If you’re a man, do you shower your wife with enough love?

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.

  1. Amen to that!! I learned in a bible study how important respect is for the husband and love for the wife. If you just work hard, it can last forever! We’re going to celebrate 16 years in August, and praying for many more! #HomeMattersParty

  2. My husband and I took this class right after we were married. When we would get into disagreements He would tell me “Go put in your pink hearing aides!” (jokingly) and then I tell him “Stop using your blue microphone!” (jokingly). This class was essential in our first years. I would love to take it again, especially now that we have little ones, things can get nuts. #HomeMattersParty

  3. My husband is the same way, he won’t read devotionals but will listen and give me his full attention when I tell him about what I read. We celebrated our first year of marriage back in March and looking forward to many, many more! It’s so important to invest time in your marriage, we’ll have to look into this book. #HomeMattersParty

  4. I learned early on in our marriage that respect is the most important thing I can give my husband, but I’m not always very good at it. We’ve been married 13 years, and there’s always room for improvement. I’ve wanted to read this book for a long time, thanks for the review!
