Lists To Love By

About the book:
It's no secret that there is a wide emotional gap between men and women. Couples crave love and attention from one another, but they don't always know how to show it. LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY WIVES presents creative and practical ways for wives to bridge this gap and improve their relationship. These thirty lists will carry wives through an entire month of learning to love their husbands more deeply with advice they will come back to again and again. From lists addressing a wide range of topics, readers will learn to set better expectations for their marriage, to communicate more effectively with their husband, to build a deeper foundation of love in their marriage, and much more.

My thoughts:
What a neat little book!  This set of books came out earlier this month, and I'm glad to tell you about them.

There are 30 lists here about a variety of marriage topics.  For example there is "10 things husbands want to hear from their wives," "4 decisions that define forgiveness," "6 things to do when you're lonely in marriage," and "7 things you should stop doing to your husband in public."

I found this book to be very helpful as a wife.  It is one that is good to go back and reread the lists. We all need the reminders, and I think this will help me improve as a wife.

Since there are 30 lists, this is a good size book to read in a month and read a different list each day. Or you may just find the lists that seem applicable to your current situation and read them in that order.  Either way you will surely find useful ideas and help for your marriage.

I enjoyed the lists and recommend this to you.

Also, there is another book for your husband called Lists to Love by For Busy Husbands.....
About the book:
Husbands and wives bring different personalities, upbringings, experiences, and expectations into their marriage, which can lead to miscommunication and emotional turmoil. LISTS TO LOVE BY FOR BUSY HUSBANDS presents practical dos and don'ts along with step-by-step advice for husbands who want to bridge the emotional gap and improve their marriage. Mark and Susan Merrill understand that couples crave love, but don't always know how to express it to one another. These thirty lists will carry husbands through an entire month of learning to love their wives more deeply--wisdom they will come back to again and again. These real-life answers from a Christian perspective will help readers evaluate, refresh, and strengthen their own marriage.

My thoughts:
 I have not read all of this book, but it is similar to the one for wives.  The ones I read I did think were applicable and would be good for husbands to know about wives. My husband read some of the lists and thought it was good, useful information.

This set of books was provided to me for my review by Hachette reviewer program.  Thank you.

Have a day of blessings!
