Not the Best Couples Book Out There... Not Even Close Jan 23, 2004
This is one of three couples devotional books my husband and I have read and it was our least favorite. To be honest, we did not even finish the book.
I believe that daily devotions with your spouse are a great idea. However, there are much better books out there. There were a few topics which were useful to us, but following the book from beginning to end was not practical because many of the devotions deal with specific topics which don't necessarily apply to all couples. Also, in order to completly cover the lessons, it took us far more than 15 minutes. We spent more than 30 minutes on most of the ones we read and didn't feel like we really completed them. Another issue which bothered me is that there are not discussion questions each day. Generally they suggest you write about a topic in a journal. That style may be great for some but the lack of discussion questions left us feeling like there was something missing.
If you want a good couples devotion book, consider James Dobson's "Night Light." Reading it was one of the best things we have ever done for our marriage.
A Truly Great Devotional! Feb 3, 2003
My husband and I have really enjoyed this book. The topics are relevant and thought provoking and there is a lot of scripture backing it up. One of the best things about it is that it really does take about 15 minutes to get through instead of those 3 minute devotionals that are so common. It means that you have to take that time to spend with each other and listen to what's being said and take time to reflect on it and talk about it. Just setting aside that time out of a busy day to concentrate on the Lord and each other has been invaluable to our marriage. I'm now buying the book to give a a wedding present!
Coming Together Sep 18, 2000
We live in such a busy world that sometimes our marriage gets put on the back burner. This devotional book has allowed my husband and I to reconnect on a daily basis. With valuable scripture readings, short stories that relate to the topic, and prayer summaries. We love this book and have recommended it to all of our married friends and families!
