A Lifelong Love by Gary Thomas Review and Giveaway
“… a good marriage isn’t something you find; it’s something you make, and you have to keep on making it. Just as importantly (and herin lies the hope), you can also begin remaking it at any stage.
If you wake up to the sobering reality that you’ve existed on artificial intimacy, the good news is that there’s a relatively easy, though not quick, fix: you can begin now to build true intimacy. It is much better for everyone involved if, instead of seeking a divorce and building yet again another relationship on artificial intimacy, the couple chooses to begin building true intimacy, with God as the center of the relationship.
This book seemed like a perfect book to read in my current situation. My husband and I are working on restoring our marriage and just a few months ago, I shared how we had separated in order to save our marriage. With so many books, websites, and speakers available with advice on how to save your marriage, it can get confusing knowing where to turn. As a christian, I find it most beneficial to draw advice from sources focused on God and how we need to allow Him to work in our lives. Marriage is work and therfore we must expect to work if we are going to have a successful marriage. The author, Gary Thomas, is a writer-in-residence at Second Baptist Church in Houston, a frequent guest on Focus on the Family and FamilyLife Today radio, and has been married for 30 years with 3 children.
Discover how to live out a sacred marriage. You believe your marriage has eternal purposes. you long for it to reach beyond your home and encourage others. But what does it look like to have a spiritually intentional relationship in the midst of dirty dishes, work deadlines, and car pools? In Sacred Marriage, Gary Thomas showed us that God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy. Now, in A Lifelong Love, Thomas gives us the practical tools to craft our marriages into inspiring relationships that breathe spiritual life to others. Whatever season of marriage you are in, A Lifelong Love gives your the practical help you need to infuse your marriage with a spiritual passion that will not only change you but will change the world around you.
A Lifelong Love is easy to read and each chapter is broken down into individual sections perfect for studying on your own or with your partner. The chapters each end with a prayer and questions to provoke a meaningful and heartfelt conversation to bring about change. I would recommend reading this book together with your partner but even if they won’t join you, take the time to read it and work thru it on your own. Take the time to explore each area and get started on your cycle of renewal and make your marriage one of A Lifelong Love.
