Making Marriage Beautiful is a Great Resource {book review}

Making Marriage Beautiful; Lifelong Love, Joy, and Intimacy Start with You by Dorothy Little Greco is one of the most intentional marriage books I have read. As a pastor's wife and a small group leader, I am often looking for good resources that can help me as I encourage, build up, challenge, and counsel other wives....and also books that challenge me to continually seek out my own godly marriage! I truly appreciate the way Greco addresses how our upbringing affects our marriage, is vulnerable in sharing experiences from her own marriage, and shares insight from other couples as they reveal their own struggles and how they worked to draw closer together. This is a great book in helping you see how God can help transform you in the areas you need to be refined and molded more into His image.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher, but was under no obligation to write a review. My honest opinion has been provided without any requirement to write a positive review.*
Making Marriage Beautiful (David C Cook, January 2017)
Making Marriage BeautifulWhat makes a marriage beautiful? Honesty? Compatibility? Physical and emotional intimacy? 
All of these are important, but there’s one component that determines the quality and longevity of a marriage more than anything else: a willingness to grow.
Because a wedding joins together two imperfect people, all couples experience disappointment, conflict, and pain. How husbands and wives respond to these challenges determines the kind of people they will become and the kind of marriage they will have.
Making Marriage Beautiful reveals how the pursuit of Christ results in profound transformation for both the individual and the marriage. Rather than offering clich├ęs and formulas, Greco relies on candor, humor, and real life stories to bring encouragement and wisdom to all couples, regardless of whether they have been married four weeks or forty years.
