Jill5 Stars Out Of 5I am really enjoying this book!April 5, 2017JillQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0It is packed full of short stories that celebrate marriage and I love how it is not only encouraging me but challenging me as well. It has reminded me not to take my husband for granted (it's so easy to do with the busyness of life!) but also taken me back to remember the sweetness of our relationship and what drew me to him in the first place. This would be a great gift for a newly married couple or as a present to those who have been married for years. I'm glad I'm reading it!

The Heart of Marriage is a collection of true stories that share from the heart of their own marriages. Each story speaks of a moment or a lesson learned in their marriage that will encourage and bless you. It is not preachy, but conversational in style. Each story is short and to the point. You could pick it up and read any of them to be inspired to make your marriage the best it could be.
This book is for anyone- from newlyweds to those married longer. I have been married almost 39 years and was touched by the stories. I believe you always keep working on your marriage. I would give this book as a shower gift or wedding present or an anniversary gift. The concepts presented are for all marriages.
The stories will inspire and challenge you; they will make you want to fall in love all over again. They will touch your heart and move you. They will make you smile and you will want to share them with others.
Just Commonly5 Stars Out Of 5Great stories to read and be inspired and encouraged byMarch 13, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"...marriage was never meant to be disposable." Right it is. When I first heard about The Heart of Marriage, I was enthralled by the theme of editor, Dawn Camp's next project. I've been a fan of her other two books, The Beauty of Grace and The Gift of Friendship, both, like The Heart of Marriage is a compilation of stories that reflect the theme of the book. Each story was personal and bound together giving readers insight. The Heart of Marriage was no different. With a high divorce rate in today's society, the marriage institution seems so unreliable. Yet, that is not what God intended.
The Heart Marriage comprised of stories from many and they are each heartfelt and honest. I love that no matter where I am in the book, or what stage my marriage is at, I can still relate to each of these stories. Not one will have the answer to the perfect marriage, but each will share with us the blessings of love and the grace of God that binds their marriage. It takes will. And as you read through each story, some will hit you harder than others, and sometimes, there's a slow and subtle rebuttal that you catch, and your mind and eyes are opened. It did that for me, and I am grateful for it. That's the gift of The Heart of Marriage, profound, candid and genuine with its meaning and it's purpose.
"A successful marriage isn't the union of two perfect people. It's that of two imperfect people who have learned the value of forgiveness and grace." (66 - Darlene Schacht, Time-Warp Wife)
A book that I highly recommend to both male and female audiences. It will make a great gift too! Perfect for couples to share and discuss or a small group. Dawn Camp has also put together a study guide. Head over to her website HERE to download.
