Top Customer Reviews
The Heart Marriage comprised of stories from many and they are each heartfelt and honest. I love that no matter where I am in the book, or what stage my marriage is at, I can still relate to each of these stories. Not one will have the answer to the perfect marriage, but each will share with us the blessings of love and the grace of God that binds their marriage. It takes will. And as you read through each story, some will hit you harder than others, and sometimes, there's a slow and subtle rebuttal that you catch, and your mind and eyes are opened. It did that for me, and I am grateful for it. That's the gift of The Heart of Marriage, profound, candid and genuine with its meaning and it's purpose.
"A successful marriage isn't the union of two perfect people. It's that of two imperfect people who have learned the value of forgiveness and grace." (66 - Darlene Schacht, Time-Warp Wife)
A book that I highly recommend to both male and female audiences. It will make a great gift too! Perfect for couples to share and discuss or a small group. Dawn Camp has also put together a study guide. Head over to her website HERE to download.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
The Heart of Marriage is a collection of true stories that share from the heart of their own marriages. Each story speaks of a moment or a lesson learned in their marriage that will encourage and bless you. It is not preachy, but conversational in style. Each story is short and to the point. You could pick it up and read any of them to be inspired to make your marriage the best it could be.
This book is for anyone- from newlyweds to those married longer. I have been married almost 39 years and was touched by the stories. I believe you always keep working on your marriage. I would give this book as a shower gift or wedding present or an anniversary gift. The concepts presented are for all marriages.
The stories will inspire and challenge you; they will make you want to fall in love all over again. They will touch your heart and move you. They will make you smile and you will want to share them with others.
