Publisher's Description

From Mark and Susan Merrill, the founders of Family First, comes a collection of lists created for the busy wife who wishes to strengthen her marriage and love her husband well.
It's no secret that there is a wide emotional gap between men and women. Couples crave love and attention from one another, but they don't always know how to show it. LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY WIVES presents creative and practical ways for wives to bridge this gap and improve their relationship. These thirty lists will carry wives through an entire month of learning to love their husbands more deeply with advice they will come back to again and again. From lists addressing a wide range of topics, readers will learn to set better expectations for their marriage, to communicate more effectively with their husband, to build a deeper foundation of love in their marriage, and much more.

    Having a successful marriage is hard. What fascinated us in our potential spouse often is found irritating after marriage. Choices are made everyday that lead to improvement or decline in a marriage. How do we know what to do?

    The Merrills have been working for twenty years on making marriages better. They have taken their combined experience and an analysis of comments on their posts and created lists. They have developed the format of lists because they can be readily used in our fast paced and complicated lives.

    The lists are designed to help us manage our expectations, evaluate how we are doing (using God's standards), and give ways to improve our marriage. The Merrills have found that these areas are ones where people want help.

    There are thirty lists so one could be reviewed each day for a month. Readers could also just go to a specific list, wanting to work on a specific area. There are Taking the Next Step sections at the end of each chapter containing evaluation questions and action suggestions.

    What are on these lists? The first one contains truths, such as, marriage is hard work. The next one contains things to remember, like our marriage vows. Other lists remind us of the power of words, actions to stop doing, unfair expectations we might have of our spouse, what we should expect of our spouse, what we want to hear from our spouse, forgiveness, respectful treatment in public, and much more.

    There are two books, one with lists for husbands and the other with lists for wives. The text of both books are generally the same except when dealing with gender specific issues. What wives would like to hear from their husbands is quite different from what husbands would like to hear from their wives. There is a chapter for husbands on pornography while the corresponding chapter for wives deals with hardening the heart. But the format of the books allow spouses to generally discuss each chapter together.

    I like the way these books have been designed. I like the idea of doing a chapter a day for a month, then starting over again. The suggestions for evaluation and action at the end of each chapter are good. Some of the suggestions seem a little contrived, however. I'm not sure I'd appreciate a compliment I received from my spouse knowing it came verbatim from a book.

    I recommend these books to couples wanting to tune up their marriage. The books would also make a good anniversary gift. While God is mentioned frequently in these books, there is no use of the Bible so these books would be good for all couples, not just Christians.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.

    This book is articulate and original when it comes to helping couples to strengthen their marriages. It has so much information but it isn't information overload like so many self help books. It talks to you on your level not over your head. It first gives you instructions the ways to do the book and then the book begins. You first learn the 7 truths about marriage and then at the end of that they ask you some serious questions. Those questions are very poignant to your marriage - and boy do you start thinking about it. Then the second chapter you are given more lists with explanations for each steps etc, then again the questions after and by the end of the book you feel like you have truly touched so deep into your marriage and that you have grown together in GOD, and love and respect and oh so much more for each other. This is such a wonderful growing book and so worth the read. I received a copy of this book from Hachette in exchange for an honest review.

    This is a quick read, something you can pick up read the list for the day and get to work.

    The authors touch on many important topics that I think we need to be reminded of, such as the way we talk about our husbands in public, what to do when you dont feel like being intimate, texts to send your husband.

    The authors suggest reading a chapter a day and then doing something from the list for the day and then once you have gotten through all of the chapters go back and so something new from the list.

    I will be honest and say that for me there wasnt any earth shattering. When I read a book about marriage I always hope to get something new and just feel like I got some good reminders of things I do know. But with that said I do think there is a lot of value in this book for someone who is looking to make changes in an easy and not overwhelming way.

    A copy of this book was given to me through Netgalley.com. All opinions are my own.
