5 Stars Out Of 5
Outstanding Time for Couples
December 8, 2016
My husband and I have read "His Needs, Her Needs" and "Lovebusters", and got a lot from them. This book differs from those in format, but also in that it is overtly Christian and brings in God's Word and scriptural examples. With any book like this, the goal is to improve your marriage and improve yourself. Incorporating the comfort of God's guidance and strength as a devotional, and not just a self-help, has been great. God giving us strength to forgive and the Holy Spirit helping us become a better spouse are naturally integrated into the truths that have made these books bestsellers.
In format, there are two "chapters" dedicated to each need/lovebuster. The first identifies and defines, the second aproaches how to correct and change. Each chapter has five short sections that can be done in 5-10 minutes. We really liked the flexibility this gives. On a weekday we might to do one or maybe two, and if we have more time or they are shorter we might do two or three. Each chapter ends with a prayer. It's a unique format but works excellent for the material.
I know some couples try to reread HNHN every year or two. This book is a huge improvement on that. I know this will not be a once and done book. It always helps us find things to appreciate in eachother, and things to talk about. I know it has brought us closer. We are planning on giving it to our pastors so they can recomend it to others. Highly recomend!!!
