True love commits
True love seeks God
True love strives to know and be known
True love fights for peace
True love honors
True love nourishes
True love needs time to grow
True love embraces
True love serves
True love endures
True love looks inward
True love seeks fellowship
These secrets are very simple and basic, nothing extremely profound; concepts that can be easily found throughout Scripture. But Greg and Erin utilize the book to share personal insight on how they struggled and learned each particular secret. There is a level of honesty and openness that is refreshing.
One of my favorite sections was in reference to the husband being the leader God has called him to be. I want to challenge men to let go of preconceived notions about what I means to be a spiritual leader where theyre only focused on spiritual disciplines. I want to challenge each woman to broaden her definition of what it means to be a spiritual leader and to notice all the ways that her husband loves and cares for his family.....Certain gifts help me lead the family toward God, using His methods of humility and grace. A man can give spiritual leadership in all kinds of ways. (pp.40-41).
Each chapter also includes follow up questions for couples and/or small groups, links to their website (crazylittlethingcalledmarriage.com) for date night ideas and a survey for couples to take to discover their strengths and weaknesses in marriage. They also include 21 ways to invest in another couple's marriage.
Although I didn't feel this book in particular was profound in the area of marriage, it definitely would be beneficial to any married couple or single individual.
