Carolyn and Denny RepkoAge: Over 655 Stars Out Of 5Super advice for discovering lasting joy in marrigeJuly 17, 2017Carolyn and Denny RepkoAge: Over 65Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0After six decades of marriage we have experienced the ups and downs described in Laura's book. It would have been very helpful for us to realize that we were not the only ones to struggle and have conflicts in our marriage, feeling unloved and unloving. Laura's practical and wise coaching would have helped us understand the seasons of marriage and these struggles were common to many. Looking back we agree that it takes time, effort and commitment to communicate well and learn how to deal with conflict and come to compromise.
Laura describes these seasons and conflicts and helps couples understand why they happen and how to hang in there with each other.
Great job Laura, sharing your insights of working with young couples for years and your compassion to give them hope for a bright future.

Ashley5 Stars Out Of 5A MUST read!July 9, 2017AshleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Before getting married I read a few books on a healthy Christian marriage, but this book by FAR is my favorite and I am so thankful for Laura Taggart's honesty and wisdom. My husband and I read the book together and enjoyed the great discussions it brought up. We loved the many ways Laura explains how couples can share intimacy! I especially liked how the book is so clear on how spouses can be intentional with every thing we do in our marriage. Each chapter has amazing examples of things to try and implement on a daily basis. I feel like my marriage will continue to grow as a learn to always leave my spouse room to grow! Fantastic book! Five stars!
