Format: Paperback
When I started reading From This Day Forward by Craig and Amy Groeschel, I hoped it would not be so prejudiced as many other books on relationships - and I was glad to realize it wasn't!

The book talks about five commitments that, if implemented and followed, will help the marriage thrive: seeking God together, fighting fair, having fun, staying pure - and NEVER giving up.

I liked (and already recommended) the book for several reasons:

- It is written in an easy-to-understand style - even for someone for whom English is not a native language, it would be a good book to read (and learn English along the way!)
- It includes good personal stories - serious as well as hilarious (oh, the pancakes:)
- It is written mostly by Craig, but Amy also has her say in appendixes to the chapter. Therefore, you get double perspective - after all, a couple includes two people, right?
- It is as good for those who are already married as for those who are thinking about it.

All in all, I think it is a good book on relationships.

I try to read every Groeschel book that comes out. He has become one of my favorite authors. His most recent work From this Day Forward did not disappoint. In fact, it was a fantastic read. In his book, Craig and his wife Amy co-author the book. In each chapter, Craig writes and Amy closes each chapter with her thoughts. In the book, you will be laughing out loud at times, and at other times in the book filled with conviction. I want to share a quick review of the book with you:

The make up of the book is fairly short. It is an easy read. In fact, if you have read any of Groeschel’s books, you will find that they are easy reads. There are 171 pages in the book. Groeschel has a knack for writing with extreme transparency. When referring people to his books, I always note that Groeschel is the best story-teller that I have ever read after. I do not think that I have ever laughed out loud and I do this regularly in his books. Groeschel has a way of telling stories about he and his wife that you will relate so close with that it makes it quite humorous.

Let’s talk content. The content of the book is divided into 5 sections.
1) Seek God – This chapter was phenomenal. Every couple needs to read this chapter if they do not read the rest of the book. This chapter was about making God “the one.” We spend so much time in life searching for “the one.” The one that we believe is fate for you to be with. Well, Groeschel spends this entire chapter challenging his readers to make God “The One.

2) Fight Fair – This chapter was my personal favorite. It was HILARIOUS! Craig and Amy did a great job being transparent in this chapter. They shared their struggles in which every couple can relate to. The theme of this chapter is to fight for resolution and not for the win.

Format: Kindle Edition
As founder of Lifechurch.tv, Craig Groeschel has proven himself as an innovative church leader and skilled communicator. As a couple married for 23 years and the parents of 6 children, Craig and his wife Amy have learned a few things about marriage. In From This Day Forward: Five Commitments to Fail-Proof Your Marriage, the Groeschels deliver, as the subtitle promises, five simple things to remember, five keys to a successful marriage.

Spoiler alert! Here they are:
1. Seek God.
2. Fight fair.
3. Have fun.
4. Stay pure.
5. Never give up.

Simple? Yes. Easy? Not always. The Groeschels make plain the sad truth that half or more of marriages fail, and that even some couples that don't divorce are miserable with each other. The challenge is not to "just keep doing the same things that everyone else is doing." The odds are against marriage. The objective is to do what it takes to increase the odds of a healthy marriage.

Seeking God together is the starting point. "If you put God first together, he will absolutely grant you the kind of marriage he wants you to have. He delights in doing it." As the saying goes, couples that pray together stay together. Groeschel cites a Family Life survey that found that among Christian couples, only eight percent pray together regularly, but of that group, fewer than one percent divorce. So praying together increases the odds greatly!

I also liked Groeschel's emphasis on having fun together. As time goes by and kids are around, it becomes more difficult to spend time having fun together. Couples have to set aside time for face-to-face, side-to-side, and, of course belly button to belly button time.

Format: Paperback
This a very uplifting marriage book that would make a perfect gift for newly weds at shower, wedding or as a one month anniversary gift, I like how the author states we are not to try and change our husbands. s for me being single it was good to because I too some time argue my points on small matters.

Seeking God together is the starting point. "If you put God first together, he will absolutely grant you the kind of marriage he wants you to have. He delights in doing it. A very refreshing read. Not at all negative but very uplifting. I will most surely keep some of their ideas in a note book to be used one day when married!

The authors state In this book, Amy and I would like to share with you five decisions that will fail-proof your marriage. If you make these decision, you can and will have the marriage God wants you to experience." After you read this book you will change the way you see marriage. This book was incredible! A definitely must read. I liked how they talked about the importance of marriage vows, seeking God first, and not wanting to change your spouse.
