What I'm Reading: The Love and Respect Exeperience

I own Eggerichs book, Love and Respect, which I recommend if you have never read. It has a lot of great information on how the woman needs love and the husband wants her respect. The Love & Respect Experience is simply from his previous work. He has taken the information from Love and Respect and compacted it into a devotional.

This devotional is easy to understand and read. It has clear content. Eggerichs says it for the husbands who do not want to feel “forced or overwhelmed”, but rather to provide and produce closeness that wives yearn for. The book has 52 different devotions which are about two pages in length. Each devotion includes a Bible Verse, insight, prayer and actions points. You might wonder why only 52 devotions? Well, research shows the average marriage does not have time to read 360 devotions a year together. This once a week strategy is perfect for the average married couple. In addition, the reader is provided with discussion questions.

Eggerichs urges couples to read separately throughout the week and then come together and discuss what one has read. He says this will help decrease the awkwardness that happens when couples read it aloud.

This devotional is leather bound and would be great for the newly married couple or the couple that has been together for twenty years.  This would serve as a great gift or a companion to Love and Respect.

This is a book guiding for me as I want to find a woman to have a solid marriage for some time. I hope I find my wife is a strong woman and has beauty.
