I studied marriage. No, I didn't go to college as a marriage major, it may not be a bad idea for some. Before we tied the knot, our pastor had given us a list of recommended books to read. And do you know what we did? We read them. I am not going to give you that list, because I lost it. But some of the books were so helpful, I still have them. Some of these books are from my own list.
- The Bible
- The First Years of Forever by Ed Wheat
- Love for a Lifetime by James Dobson
- The Act of Marriage by Tim LaHaye
- The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace
- Created to be His Help Meet by Debi Pearl
- Love Life for Every Married Couple by Ed Wheat
- Creative Counterpart By Linda Dillow
- Letters to Karen by Charlie W. Shedd
- Strike the Original Match by Charles Swindoll
In case you were wondering after 19 years, how I am doing in the class. Understanding that a great marriage is no accident, I'm constantly striving for an A+. Once in while, on my self-inflicted report cards, I give myself "a needs improvement in behavior and attitude", but for the most part: I am still an enthusiastic student.
Do you have any books that have blessed your marriage?
