My Personal Review
Wow where to start, I love this book so much because of how it is written. Karen Ehman did a fantastic job helping people see into their marriage with clear vision , no rose colored glasses here! I am on page 51 and decided to review what I have read thus this far because I need to start at page 1 again , but this time with highlighters and a note pad so I can take notes. I LOVE the “Love Attracts, love Attacks” analogy because men and women are created VERY differently, the falling out of love, the need to cheat, and hurtful words, or even the words that are not being spoken can Attack you! One of my favorite parts thus far would be the way she described her and her husband in the car together , or how she read into how he was thinking but really he was thinking about WAY different things than she thought he was, I am guilty of that for sure and I bet the majority of us lady’s do that.
Karen is very to the point but with some humor to keep you wanting to read more, I love how she talks about her own struggles in her marriage , and the pains she has experienced because I think this book has something in it for every lady out there! I love how she helps you see what god wants your marriage to be like, stop fighting over money, parenting, come together as one and be on the same page. that doesn’t mean you have to always agree on everything , just means you compromise and work together. Like I have herd over and over , ” A couple that prays together stay’s together”, not sure if that is 100% true but I like the thought of that. So with 51 pages read and 223 pages total in this book I can’t wait to dig way deeper into this with my highlighters, notebook, and prayers along the way. Please give this book a chance, I want to order a few for friends that is how much I love it so far!
