“Too often and too easily I take my husband for granted, and inevitably our marriage suffers, which is why I’m so grateful for Becky’s latest book, Love Unending. Her words of wisdom and grace equipped me with twenty-one daily (and doable!) ways to be intentional in loving my husband in light of how I have first been loved by God in Jesus Christ.

Love Unending will take you on a deliberate twenty-one-day stroll back down memory lane. There you’ll discover anew the love you once felt for your husband loooooong before the first kiddo stepped onto your household terrain. This inspiring book—part memoir and part personal journal, tied neatly with a big bow of biblical encouragement—will guide you gently as you endeavor to become the believer, wife, and mother God desires you to be.”

Some of the days seem like such a simple thing but when combined with purposeful, day by day intentional acts of changing our own behaviors with in our marriage, I can already see our hearts changing towards each other. Becky's writing is like sitting and having coffee with another girlfriend, you will feel comfortable hearing her stories and you'll want to grab another friend to join you and help keep you accountable as well. So grab this book for yourself and an extra for a friend and challenge each other to grow and be intentional in your marriages while walking through some of the most challenging seasons in our parenting lives. You'll be glad you made the extra time.
For those of us who have children know, your marriage relationship changes with the addition of an infant. When I say this book is practical, I mean it. Each of the 21 chapters focuses on a behavior that can help every wife treat their spouse like they did back in the honeymoon stage. In putting these tips into practice, an amazing thing begins to happen. Humbleness and kindness begin to replace entitlement and harshness. I know because I tried it!
Don't get me wrong, following this advice is not easy. It requires you to put aside your ego and put the other person first. In doing so, it helps bring to light the sanctifying effect of marriage. It isn't about getting what one or the other wants. It is about becoming more like Christ. Pretty counter cultural, huh? If every person thought about marriage in this way, I believe the divorce rate in our country would drop dramatically. Thank you, Becky Thompson, for this reminder.
