Living in Love - A Review
The Co-hosts of TV's LIFE Today share keys to an exciting and fulfilling marriage
James and Betty have been married for nearly 50 years and say "we are more in love now than ever before". What did I like about this book? Their honesty. They don't just talk in general terms. They speak from their hearts about experiences in their own marriages. They talk about where they have been and how they have got to where they are.
I particularly liked the section on dealing with the baggage that we bring into our marriages, how it effects our marriage and ways to help let it go. I also enjoyed the section about building up our spouses, to never betray your spouses trust. If you seek counseling, make sure you are there to get better, not to gossip and tear-down your mate.
Also, remember that no one is perfect. Sure your mate has faults. But so do you. So remember to be forgiving and supportive.
I enjoyed reading this book and gained some insight and encouragement that will be useful in the years to come.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
