A Marriage Guide you can turn to again and again Nov 29, 2009
I enjoyed how author Jewell R Powell used the story of Sleeping Beauty to reflect Gods Love. In today's world, I don't think it matters if you are about to be married, newly weds, or on 22 years (like me), this book has something we can all benefit from. The study questions and places to leave my reflections were wonderful as I like to take notes when I am learning.
The book is interesting and laid out in an 8 week format. In a quote by Mother Theresa :
Spread Love wherever you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your wife or husband, toy our children, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of Gods kindness, kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile, kindness in your warm greeting.
~ Mother Theresa
The part that got me there was the first sentence. How often do I spread myself so thin throughout the day that by the time I land back at home with my husband there isn't a whole lot of me left? A wonderful read - a great study guide for individuals or couples. I would recommend this book to anyone who is planning to get married or is currently married.
Great Resource!!! Nov 18, 2009
Marriage 101 is a great ministry tool for married couples. Those in waiting can also learn valuable lessons from this transparent step by step guide. I have been married for 20 years and lead Couple's Ministry for 10 years. I found Jewel Powell's revelations refreshing and practical. While reading this book, I found myself re-evaluating my commitment to marriage.
Keep listening to God, Ms. Powell.
A Must Read for Married Couples Nov 9, 2009
Jewell Powell has done an excellent job of addressing marital issues in a way that encourages couples to have the marriage God intended. After reading the book, I purchased copies for all the newlyweds in my family. Our couples ministry bought copies to distribute to couples in the church. We are truly excited about the upcoming study guide to accompany the book, and we plan to use if for small group study.
