Just in Time for Valentine's Day - Marriage Project - Book Review
Valentine's day is one of those days where you either get totally into and go all out for romance and igniting the passion or it is just another day where you exchange a card with a red heart and give or get a box of chocolates. (I'm definitely not complaining about the chocolates.)
I had the pleasure of reviewing the book, The Marriage Project by Kathi Lipp and it is one of those books that I highly recommend for seasoned lovers who need a jump start again or brand new lovers who are looking for new adventures to keep the glow in their relationship. After I reviewed the book, I passed it along to my sister and her husband for their review as well. Her review says it all:
Sometimes it takes the smallest and simplest things to stir up the embers and re-ignite the passions in a marriage. When I first read the synopsis of Kathi Lipp’s book, the Marriage Project, I was certain it was going to be just another manual on how-to improve your marriage. After reading through the first couple of projects, I couldn’t wait to embark on this unique 21 day journey with my husband. I figured convincing him would be a challenge but I was shocked when he whole heartedly embraced the idea. Not to ruin it for those who have yet to experience the Marriage Project; it was exhilarating to face each of the projects with my mate. My favorite projects were Turning up the Heat, Getting to Know You and A Little Hands On Attention. We had a blast cooking together. Planning the meal, shopping for the ingredients, chopping, sautéing and broiling, and then finally sitting down to enjoy the meal we’d prepared…an amazing culinary experience. It was very reminiscent of our newlywed years when we enjoyed doing everything together. I thought I knew everything about my mate, but Getting to Know You made me realize that there are plenty of things I have yet to learn about my husband and vice versa. I was a bit hesitant to try A Little Hands on Attention, but my husband loved the pampering massage. Seeing his enjoyment put me immediately at ease. It created an unforgettable night…
If this is the kind of romance and spark that you feel you could use in your marriage, this will be the book to read.
Lover of God, my awesome husband, Pastor J, my kids, bonus kids, furkids and chocolate. I'm a writer, with a passion for anything creative. I am silly, clumsy, honest, faithful and often times, pathetic but so thankful that God loves me just as I am.
