Reviews - What do customers think about Becoming Soul Mates?
For Couples Only Feb 20, 2004
I would agree with the reviews below. This is intended for couples to use together and discuss. That is where the real bonding and intimacy is. I can't say I'm confortable with everything they ask...just one of those quiet unemotional types.
This is good for any couple, but I think the intended audience are for beginning couples, and even better when you are thinking about marriage.
There are many chapters dealing with a relationship topic. It would be good to cover 1-2 a week. This would be a very good couple devotional book to work through.
Christian Newlyweds: a devotional you'll have time to read! Jan 27, 2003
The pastor who performed our ceremony gave us this book as a wedding gift, and has been a real blessing to us. Newlyweds often face so much change and upheaval that it may be hard to find time to work on the marriage. This book presents a year's worth of content, arranged by topic and meant to be read once a week. The chapters are brief but engaging, and each provides with discussion questions, a verse from scripture, and a story from a couple that relates to the theme. Once readers have finished talking about the content, they are encouraged to think about the week ahead and make plans to help each other in concrete ways.
We've found it to be a nice follow-up to our pre-marital counseling; this book provides on-going discussion and strategies for honoring and loving your spouse.
Note: this book assumes a Christian audience. While the discussions would be helpful for any couple, non-Christian readers should be aware of this orientation before buying the book.
Great Discussion Guide Dec 29, 2001
This is the only marriage/relationship book I've been able to make it through - and I look forward to it every week! We take turns reading a chapter to each other weekly, and in addition to the topics being very real to life/couple issues, the discussion questions give you an opportunity to better understand and learn about your spouse. We also like how each week it asks you to select a particular upcoming challenge we'd like our spouse to pray for us about, and a concrete kindness they can offer us - this really gets us in touch with what is going on with the other. Highly recommended!!
Recommended for every couple who wants to grow spiritually. Feb 11, 2001
This is one of the best devotional books for couples I have come across. It deals with couples beginning their lives together, but it would be beneficial to any couple whose spirituality is important to them. It would make a perfect wedding gift!
A great guide to growing together in spiritual intimacy Jul 23, 1999
As a newly married Christian couple, we had trouble finding a devotional for younger couples that dealt with issues we face. This book took a look at the first steps together as a couple in Christ and helped to blend us together into a team. Yet, the book helped us to remember that we are each individuals and to celebrate these differences. We are busy, and creating a time once a week was perfect for this book and our lifestyle. I would RECOMEND this book to anyone, but especially couples in the first ten years of marriage.
