About the Book: With the ongoing popularity of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, the much-loved Robertson family has more to share about family, faith, and love than ever before. Alan (the beardless brother) and his wife Lisa have created a devotional combining their hard-won wisdom about love and marriage to help bring couples closer together and closer to God.

Alan and Lisa Robertson had a failing marriage. But with unwavering faith and the unconditional love of their ever-present family, they got through the tough times and rekindled their love. Now the Robertsons want to share what they’ve learned. Combining the spiritual with the practical, The Duck Commander Devotional for Couples has a simple purpose: to bring couples closer to God and to each other. Designed with busy couples in mind, this devotional encourages husbands and wives to set aside time weekly to enhance their relationship. Spending spiritually meaningful time together every day is often impossible, but Al and Lisa arranged this devotional with realistic goals, allowing you to experience success and the desire to meet together regularly.

Each devotional includes inspirational messages, relevant scriptures, thoughtful questions, and prayer suggestions. Whether you are happy in your marriage or struggling to hold it together, setting aside time to focus on each other and deepen your connections will improve your relationship and bring you closer to God. 
My Thoughts:
As we look forward to Valentine'S Day, this may be a gift that many of you would enjoy as you seek to develop a closer relationship with your spouse. I liked that each week contained a different devotional on  various topics with the intention of bringing you and your spouse closer together with God being the center in the devotional. These devotional topics are very relevant to the culture we live in and give guidance in a Biblical understand.  Each devotional contains discussion questions for the couple to go over, which is a great way to get discussion. Afterwards, the devotional provided space for her thoughts and his thoughts to continue to shape growth within the marriage. I can see this being so beneficial in marriages today. This devotional would only require 10 minutes a day with our spouse and the fruits in our marriages, families  and life would be so much more than the ten minutes that we invest. I would highly recommend this devotional simply for the content, the way it is written and the opportunity it provides for couples to draw closer together. 

Thank you to Howard Publishing Company for providing me the opportunity to review this book. I was not compensated for a positive review, but provided a copy of the book for my honest opinion, which I have given here.
