Reviews - What do customers think about Do Your Kids a Favor...Love Your Spouse?
Review by Martha Robinson of Homeschoolchristian.com Oct 1, 2009
Recommendation: This book implies by its title that it is about your children, but in fact, it is about your marriage and your relationship with the Lord. By building a strong marriage with Christ at the center, you can be the role model that your children need for a faith-filled life obedient to God.
Do Your Kids a Favor...Love Your Spousewould be an excellent gift for young married couples. It would also be helpful for couples who are struggling to communicate with one another or would like to move towards a closer and more Godly relationship. Do Your Kids a Favor...Love Your Spouse is a quick and enjoyable read, but has the substance for a lengthy study by couples motivated to improve their marriage.
