Reviews - What do customers think about I Promise?
Great book for any married couple Nov 9, 2009
This is a great book for any married couple to read. I recommend that couples read it together. The concepts presented work because they are based on God's design for marriage.
I loved this book. Nov 3, 2009
I loved this book. It showed me ways to change myself to help my marriage and my relationship with God. It just made sense. I think it is great for a couple to read and will help anyone who wants their marriage to last and be as fulfilling as possible.
Real Marital Love Jan 19, 2009
This book is about real marital love. It is very direct and to the point about loving and caring in a marriage. This should be required reading before couples get married and then again every five years. After 40 years of marriage we found this book still has much to add to a loving relationship.
Wonderful! Jan 13, 2009
This book was recommended on the website for the movie, "Fireproof" (www.fireproofthemovie.com). For anyone who's read Fireproof and would like a step-by-step example to work on your marriage ~ this is it! This book is equally useful for a couple that is newly engaged or married, in the "middle" of their married life, or seasoned pros. It has wonderful information and principles regardless if your marriage is strong or floundering, if both mates are equally yoked or imbalanced. Parts of this book stress our personal relationship with Christ and how it affects our relationship with our mate. I like that Dr. Smalley writes to both husbands and wives (with particular portions for each). This was inspiring!
I Promise book Nov 4, 2008
This book is excellent and would be good for any couple to read whether they are preparing for marriage or have been married for a while. It is one of the most helpful and practical books I have read. I highly recommend it for any couple who wants to have a good marriage or improve the one they are in.
