Love and Respect: The love she most desires and the respect he desperately needs – by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. It's the age-old answer to marital conflict. Men need respect and women need to feel loved. Easier said than done at times, but it truly is what men and women crave.
Dr. Eggerichs gives valuable tools on how to get intentional in your communication with your spouse. How do you show respect for your husband? How do you truly show your wife that you love her? Read the book to see how!! He bases this on the verse Ephesians 5:33 "...Each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." It's a Biblical truth and it truly works.
The author himself declared this book as meant for people in a marital crisis, spouses headed for divorce, husbands and wives in a second marriage, people wanting to stay happily married, spouses married to unbelievers, divorcees trying to heal, lonely wives, browbeaten husbands, spouses in affairs, victims of affairs, engaged couples, pastors and counselors looking for materials that can save marriages. I think the "people wanting to stay happily married" part covers it for all of us no matter what our situation!
I received this book from Thomas Nelson as part of their BookSneeze.com blogger book reviewer program in exchange for my review.
