Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs on sale for Kindle: 89% off, just $1.99

In researching my review for The Respect Dare (below) I stumbled upon a great sale: the book Love and Respect, by Emerson Eggerichs, is on sale for Kindle for $1.99, which is 89% off! This is a book I can highly recommend. My husband and I have both found it to be very helpful. Here’s the official book description:

Discover the Single Greatest Secret to a Successful Marriage

Psychological studies affirm it, and the Bible has been saying it for ages. Cracking the communication code between husband and wife involves understanding one thing: that unconditional respect is as powerful for him as unconditional love is for her. It’s the secret to marriage that every couple seeks, and yet few couples ever find.

Today, you and your mate can start fresh with the ground-breaking guidance that Dr. Emerson Eggerichs provides in this book. His revolutionary message is for anyone: in marital crisis…wanting to stay happily married…who’s feeling lonely. It’s for engaged couples…victims of affairs…pastors and counselors seeking material that can save a marriage.

Using Dr. Eggerich’s breakthrough techniques, couples nationwide are achieving a brand-new level of intimacy and learning how to: stop the Crazy Cycle of conflict, initiate the Energizing Cycle of change, enjoy the Rewarded Cycle of new passion.

And if you’ll take this Biblically-based counsel to heart, your marriage could be next!

Review and Kindle sale price (45% off): The Respect Dare by Nina Roesner

I recently had the chance to read The Respect Dare, by Nina Roesner (Full title: The Respect Dare: 40 Days to a Deeper Connection with God and Your Husband.) This nonfiction book was released December 11, 2012 by Thomas Nelson.

About this book (from the back cover):

“A long and happy marriage.” It sounds like the end of a fairy tale—an illusion that modern times have exposed. And it is, if marriage depends on a constant stream of romantic emotion, or even on copious amounts of time or money. Thank the Lord, none of those are necessary. Two thousand years ago, Paul gave women the key to a successful marriage, and it can be summed up in two words: unconditional respect. It’s not popular. It doesn’t sound fair. It can be hard to imagine. But it works. Nina Roesner has led countless women through this practical and life-changing journey, and in The Respect Dare she offers you the hope that so many others have found. Day by day, true stories and thought-provoking questions will help you apply biblical wisdom to the most important relationship in your life.Give it forty days. Experience the intimacy God intended and discover what he can do in your heart and in your marriage when you choose to show respect his way.”

Final Verdict:

This book plays off the book The Love Dare, which is referenced in the movie Fireproof; The Love Dare and The Respect Dare both outline a series of steps individuals can take to strengthen their marriages. Yes, yes, if you’re a frequently sarcastic person you might find it all a bit kitschy, but really, in a world where 50% of marriages end in divorce, there’s a place for sincere books and movies like these. It’s gimmicky, yes, but in my opinion if you go into the process acknowledging and embracing the gimmick you can still find helpful truth. All of that applies to The Respect Dare, which references the notion outlined in Love and Respect (an excellent book!) that while women prioritize love, men prioritize respect, so these are tasks that wives can do to show more respect to their husbands. I read the Respect Dare challenges a few at a time, instead of one a day, and I found most of them to be applicable and helpful. A few seemed a little more abstract; I enjoyed the “task-oriented” challenges more. (For example, you are challenged not to disagree with your husband for 24 hours, which I did. I would like to think I don’t spend too many hours disagreeing with my husband, but it was fun to be more mindful of my words.) The book does reference the author’s Daughters of Sarah classes a bit too many times, which I found tiring, but that’s my main complaint. Coming from the perspective of someone with a healthy marriage that can always use maintenance, I found most (not all) of the “dares” in this book to be fun, challenging, and helpful.

If you’d like to check out The Respect Dare it is currently on sale for $8.79 for the Kindle version right now, which is 45% off. (Regularly $15.99) If you prefer a hard copy it’s currently on sale for $10.87. Remember, Amazon’s prices can change at any time.

Merry Christmas 2012!

And ye, beneath life’s crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow,
Look now! for glad and golden hours
come swiftly on the wing.
O rest beside the weary road,
And hear the angels sing!

Merry Christmas to all! Hope you have a wonderful day with your friends and family!
