From this Day Forward- Book Review

 


My Review:
I love books from Pastor Craig Groeschel and have read Weird, Soul Detox, Altar Ego, Fight and now From this Day Forward. His books are wonderful and this book is no exception.  In this short book about marriage, Amy and Graig get straight to the point about the five pillars of marriage that will make marriage work if each spouses are committed to making it work. This book is easy to read, but these practical truths can be hard to put into place. I like how this book meets you where you are and helps you strengthen and build on your marriage. This book can be used for those who are married, those getting married or those who have been married for several years.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can't wait to give this to some of friends who are getting married.  I recieved this book free for book review purposes and was not compensated for a positive review.

 
Back of the Book:
 
New York Times bestselling author and pastor Craig Groeschel is joined by his wife Amy for this groundbreaking book on marriage. Hard-hitting and humorous, refreshingly transparent—this resource will make good marriages stronger and save the ones that are hanging on by a thread.
You know the stats, and they are horrifying. 50% of marriages don’t make it. With those kinds of odds, is it even possible to have a great marriage? Craig Groeschel believes so, but not if you treat it like everyone else does.
In this groundbreaking new book, New York Times bestselling author and pastor Craig Groeschel and his wife Amy show engaged and married couples how to conquer the odds in a culture where “I do” doesn’t necessarily mean forever and find the joy, passion, and strength of a marriage built by God. Craig and Amy present the 5 commitments all spouses need to make in order to absolutely fail-proof their marriage. Starting right now—from this day forward.
  • Seek God
  • Fight fair
  • Have fun
  • Stay pure
  • Never give up
If readers earnestly choose to do all five of these things, they’ll discover a richer, deeper, more authentic relationship and a more rewarding and passionate love life than they could have ever imagined.
