Nine Thoughts That Can Change Your Marriage, By Sheila Wray Gregoire-Book Review


About the book:

"Is what you believe about marriage getting in the way of a GREAT relationship

When you’ve put into practice all the usual advice, but your marriage still falls short of the intimacy and joy you want, what then? Are patience and perseverance your only hope for a better relationship?
Author and speaker Sheila Wray Gregoire says, “Absolutely not!” The solution to a happier relationship is not found in being a more patient, more perfect wife, but in taking responsibility for what you can do—and especially for how you think about your marriage. She challenges you to replace pat Christian answers with nine biblical truths that will radically shift your perspective on your husband, your relationship, and your role in God’s design for marriage, including…
·       My Husband Can’t Make Me Mad
·       Being One Is More Important Than Being Right
·       Having Sex Is Not the Same as Making Love
With humor and honesty, Sheila invites you to believe that God wants to bring oneness and intimacy to your
marriage—and challenges you to partner with Him in that process by changing the way you think. "

A refreshing new book to the sea of relationship books. After reading so many marriage/relationship books it's hard to find one the you not only agree with but one that also teaches you something new.
Sheila Wray Gregorie tackles tough subjects tackling real life problems with real life solutions. 
She goes through (as the title says) 9 thoughts that can make a huge impact on your marriage. Though I am not married, I've read my fare share of marriage books, and I loved this one! 
"Because a great relationship doesn't happens by accident,"-Sheila makes you look yourself in the mirror and helps your see how you can make good changes to your marriage instead of waiting around for your husband to do it....my mom (whose been married for 27 years) 'stole' the book from me and read it cover to cover several times, she even went on and purchase other books by Sheila Wray Gregoire-she loved this book that much!
This book is definitely added to my must read marriage relationship books.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
