The Spark will help couples build intimacy in every area of their marriage! Feb 12, 2008
This book is a must have for all married couples! Jay and Laura share beautifully on how to make marriage fun, exciting and more intimate. I was especially intrigued by the five facets of intimacy. Learning how to develop each facet to it's fullest and bringing them all together is something my husband Dan and I are taking enjoyment in. Whether you are a newlywed or have been married for years, you will find this book filled with wisdom along with fun stories that everyone can relate to. Buy this book, read it, put it to practice, you won't be sorry!
The Spark will help you appreciate, celebrate and rejoice in your marriage! Jan 31, 2008
In my work as a Marriage Coach, Motivational Speaker and Inside Romance Success show host I read a lot of books about people, their motivations, and their relationships. "The Spark: Igniting the Passion, Mystery, and Romance in Your Marriage" by Jay and Laura Laffoon is an engaging, fun, and personal journey to a healthy marriage. It's an excellent marriage and relationship book and I give it an A+.
The Laffoons surveyed over 2,000 married people to discover their beliefs about intimacy. They also conducted in-depth surveys with nearly 100 people about the issues affecting intimacy. Jay and Laura have used their training, experience, and the results of their extensive research to author a book that provides practical solutions that you can implement to help you update, improve, and enhance your marriage.
They set the stage for talking about marriage with the most unique engagement story I've ever read. When I shared it with my wife she laughed out loud. Jay and Laura's view on marriage and relationship priorities, and where kids fall on the priority list, is one that every parent should hear.
Jay and Laura's message and lessons are focused around 5 areas of intimacy;
- Social Intimacy, - Mental Intimacy, - Emotional Intimacy, - Physical Intimacy, and - Spiritual Intimacy.
The information provided for each Intimacy area includes lists of the attractors and detractors to that Intimacy. Where appropriate, chapters end with reflection and discussion questions to reinforce learning and help you into action.
Finally, Jay and Laura give us tips for putting this all together in our marriages.
I highly recommend you get a copy of "The Spark: Igniting the Passion, Mystery, and Romance in Your Marriage" by Jay and Laura Laffoon whether you're single, engaged, or married. It will prepare you for a great relationship that lasts a lifetime.
