Life Promises for Couples~ a book review

Life Promises for Couples by Gary Chapman
Dr. Gary Chapman brings us another wonderful book on improving our relationships. In this book he offers to the reader, “God’s promises for you and your spouse.” With Dr. Chapman’s years of marriage counseling, and pastoral studies, he interprets love, as written in Bible verses, and how we can apply them to our relationships.
I must admit that I am a big fan of Dr. Chapman’s teachings. I do own a few of his books, including his highly acclaimed; “The Five Love Languages”,
which describes how each person has his or her own way of feeling loved by another, and how one can learn to express that to their companion’s, in other words, to “speak their partner’s language, thus bringing a relationship closer together.
He teaches amazing information that I have used in my own marriage.
“Life Promises for Couples” would make a great companion book to others in Dr. Chapman’s series on love, and it would also make a nice gift book for couples. It is a beautiful hard back edition.
Written much like a day reader, one page offers a few scriptures, and the opposite page offers a reading that hits right on the topic of the topic of the Bible verses. The author offers simple and easy suggestions, that one can use on a daily basis to improve relationships. They could be as simple as giving your spouse a compliment, to taking out the trash or doing the laundry.
The book ends with a scripture index. The only thing I wish it included would be a topic index, so one could return to a particular topic when such things come up in our daily lives.
I do highly recommend this book.
I received a copy of this book through Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
