Reviews - What do customers think about Through Good Times and Bad: Prayers for a Lifetime Together?
Fr. Carroll reviews "Through Good Times and Bad" Prayers for a Lifetime together. Jan 5, 2007
I send this lovely prayer book to all the couples that I marry. Robert Hamma and Kathryn Schneider have written and gathered some very beautiful prayers and poetry for the various phases of wedded life. The book is beautifully illustrated with patterns of quilts. Early in the book the authors clarify the meaning of prayer and encourage the people to pray and to work on building their love. Prayers include the wedding vows, to the rings to the wedding blessing and on to married life together. Blessings for the home, meals, family, prayers in joyful and in sad times are included. This book is so important in our time of a million distractions and time consuming but sometimes meaningless activities. I want to leave the newly married couple a lasting message that prayer is basic to Christian living and helps strengthen marriages so that they can safely navigate the storms of life. The only shortcoming I can site is that I wish there were a hardcover edition so that I could be assured the book would physically hold up for the all years of their lives.

Through Good Times and Bad: Prayers for a Lifetime Together (Paperback) Jul 31, 2006
Excellent, excellent, excellent. This small but powerful book of prayer and thought is a must for all marriages in all phases of life. Do not leave home without it.
Great wedding or anniversary gift May 22, 2003
This little book has a wonderful collection of prayers and reflections for newlyweds of all ages and marriage durations. As a Deacon, I prepare couples for the sacrament of marriage and witness their wedding vows. For the past two years I have given this book as a gift to over a dozen couples. I have even used the prayers in several wedding ceremonies. The quilt pictures that surround the text are beautiful - an added bonus.
