Special Valentine's Giveaway! - Love and Respect for a Lifetime

From bestselling author Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, Thomas Nelson Publishing brings couples a new, beautiful way to approach the Love and Respect method of communication--Love and Respect for a Lifetime.

Love and Respect for a Lifetime is a small gift book filled with beautiful, uplifting stories, tips, and advice on how to make a marriage sound. Charming and touching pictures fill some of the pages to make it a treat for the eyes, and the wisdom within is in short segments to make it easy to flip through. I sat down with it for an hour and read the whole thing, smiling at some of the nuggets of insight and nodding at others.

As Dr. Eggerichs has taught in his previous books on the Love and Respect method, in this lovely little book he quickly defines the Biblical principle that helped him develop this system--that men crave respect above all, and women crave love. That the two genders view the world through these glasses, and that when we make an effort to fulfill our spouse's need for that, then we are not only in a better place to receive what we need in turn, but we're also doing it unto Christ and strengthening our relationship with Him first and foremost.

I found the principles espoused in this to be sound and practical, and I loved the easy to handle format of this book--absolutely anyone could sit down and flip through it for even a few minutes and come away the richer.

And so, I'm happy to be able to offer a special giveaway! On Valentine's Day I'll draw a winner for a copy of this beautiful hardback gift book. Those who have already read Dr. Eggerich's Love and Respect books will appreciate the quick reminders this one gives, and those who haven't will get a quick, cute introduction to what could help them enrich and smooth out their marriage.

  11. I would love to own this book. I've read it through once but feel that it's the type of book for which a second read would be very beneficial.

    The author's stance on the interrelationship of love and respect in marriage makes a lot of sense practically, but even more important, it's thoroughly biblical!

  12. The difference between a mans and womans perception is so true. I'd love to read this book, and also to share it with my MOPS group.
