Why is it that hot passion and warm companionship wane into cool coexistence for so many married couples? How can couples rekindle the spark in their relationship and fan it into something that's fervent and enduring? Devotions for Couples (formerly titled Two Part Harmony) helps husbands and wives open their hearts, share their minds, face their weaknesses, and combine their strengths to build the marriage they had in mind when they slipped the rings on each other's fingers. These candid, insightful devotions take couples to the real, nitty-gritty issues of marriage--the things that tear couples apart and the things that bring them together to enjoy happiness, security, passion, and companionship. In 120 engaging, thought-provoking chapters, Patrick Morley helps husbands and wives to better understand their mates and themselves. Devotions for Couples deals with such issues as Intentionally Hurting Each Other. Special Instructions Just for Him/Her. Fights and Quarrels. Understanding His Pressure. Her Principal Activity. Two Tools to Tear Down Walls. Ten Ways to Bless Each Other. And many more. The devotions build on each other consecutively; yet the format is flexible enough for couples to move at their own rate and according to their own needs. Devotions for Couples takes them through Part One: Deepening Our Relationship with Each Other Part Two: The Delicate Art of Communication Part Three: Understanding Each Other Part Four: What Pulls Us Apart Part Five: Staying Together Part Six: Our Children Part Seven: Our Future Together Now in trade paperback for the first time, this candid and powerful book by a pioneer of the men's movement is well-written and salted with anecdotes ranging from the humorous to the poignant. But it's far more than a great read. Devotions for Couples is a down-to-business devotional that steers couples beyond its stories and principles to discussion and prayer--and a stronger, Christ-centered marriage.
