Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

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.

More About the Author

Hi, this is Pat. I write books for men -- 20 and counting. I wanted to do a handshake and thank you for considering how my books can help you and the men around you lead a deeper, richer life of meaning and purpose in Christ.

My mission is to help you grow as a disciple and disciple maker. You can find my blog, bio, Bible teachings on video, articles, books, e-books, daily devotionals, tweets, Facebook posts, links to all our websites, and radio program at http://www.PatrickMorley.com.

I started my career in the highly competitive world of real estate development. In 1986, I began teaching The Man in the Mirror Bible Study which, for the most part, was me sharing my struggles and what the Bible said about them. It resonated with the men. Today we have 10,000 men in the Bible study.

That led to starting Man in the Mirror, a ministry that helps churches more effectively disciple men. Our vision is, "For every church to disciple every man." We've helped 35,000 churches impact 12,000,000 men. Learn how we can help your church at http://www.maninthemirror.org.

I must say that this book helped bring us closer to God and each other!
K. M. Cole
Each study comes with discussion questions at the end and we have found them very helpful in starting some meaningful conversations between us.

It has some humor and Patrick mixes in so many personal stories that really help us relate.

We have enjoyed this book over the last eight years of our marriage (ours is called "Two Part Harmony") and we give to every newly wed couple we know! **Caution: read it from the front and work your way through each chapter. The principles in each section build upon each other. We've found that skipping to another section or just openning the book and reading the one it falls to isn't nearly as effective as reading the devotions in sequence.

Format: Hardcover
This is a "non-preachy" devotional that addresses all the common, everyday issues all couples face. Loving your spouse unconditionally (even if she's fat), doing household chores (the impact on a family if the husband doesn't complete them as promised), and praying for each other are just a few of the topics covered. After each short (two pages maximum) devotional, there is a discussion question for the couple to share, how to apply the devotion to daily life, then a prayer. "Devotions for Couples" is a simple, practical devotional book for any couple wanting to share time together!

My wife and I have really enjoyed this book. It's gets right to the heart of real issues that need to be worked on for a marriage to be healthy. Our only complaint has been that sometimes the illustrations used to make the point seem a little unrealistic. But the principles and concepts are great. It's been very helpful for us!

Men - Are you the type that enjoys deep meaningful talks with your wife? If you are you will love this book. However, if you are like most men and find comfort in quietly withdrawing from difficult situations, this book will make you uncomfortable. My wife loves this book, yet, many times it has made me uncomfortable.

Why do I still rate it five stars? Simple, it is, hands-down, the best devotional I have ever read for couples. It is not wishy-washy or touchy-feely in any way. It deals with real issues and real marital situations. Even though I have been uncomfortable with the book many times, our marriage is stronger becasue of this book!

If you are searching for a devotional for a married couple that gets right to the heart of a marriage, then this is for you. If, however, you still wish to avoid those difficult conversations, then avoid this book like the plague. But, by doing so, you will miss out on how wonderful your marriage could be!

Format: Hardcover
We started this book about 6 months ago and have experienced a closeness in our 20 year marriage like never before. My husband has been faithful in taking the initiative every night (which is a huge blessing to me) to bring out the devotional, and we take turns reading a chapter each night. We actually completed the whole book about a month ago, but we missed it so much we recently started from the beginning again! Going through it a 2nd time is surprisingly refreshing and not stale. Some of the devotionals confirm things we are doing and make us feel good about being on the right track for us, and others challenge us to do things we hadn't considered or hadn't taken the time to do before. There are a few that either don't apply to us or we don't necessarily agree with, but they still spark good conversation and bring us closer. We've done a few other couples devotionals, we teach marriage and pre-marital classes, and my husband is a marriage and family therapist, and we believe this is the best couples devotional we've ever been exposed to.

My husband was leery at first about reading this type of book together. While we were faithful churchgoers I thought our faith life needed a boost and this seemed like a good way to start. The devotionals touch on just about every aspect of married life and they focus on situations from a man's perspective as well as a woman's. Morley doesn't preach or condescend. The devotionals are easy to read and my husband and I have definitely come back to things we've read about when we've had arguments. Doing this certainly does not solve all of our problems in one evening, but it definitely allows us to ask each other questions and explore our differences and opinions in a safe, loving way. Highly recommended!

As a minister and counselor, I give this devotional to all couples that I do premarital counseling with as a wedding gift and to all couples I counsel as a tool to get them praying together. The devotions are quick, insightful, and challenging, but not so deep that they cause you to run. The best couples devotional I have found. My wife and I have gone through it three times together and have loved it each time.

It was hard for me to choose which books would be best for my husband and I, but this is by far the best book I bought. There are so many good points about what a couple experiences within a marriage, and there are even discussions about parenting. The questions require us to think about our responses, and how we can improve our marriage by applying these Christian strategies in our lives. There are great Christian applications for our marriage, and the prayers in the book are relevant. The only negative comment I have is that there are not dates for each devotional, but I found the information in the book so inspiring that I read several pages at one time. I would highly recommend this book for my friends. In fact, I plan on buying this book for my family! Love it.
