a Valentine’s Day giveaway!

 

Wowzers – it’s hard to get back in the swing of blogging when you’ve been gone so long. But here I am, back at it, and with a giveaway!

 

I was contacted a little while back to do a book review. I never do reviews and I next to never read. {So not proud of that fact and actually have been doing a lot more of it since the new year!} But I thought: what a great way to make myself read AND a book written about a topic I’ve been interested in reading more about: relationships.

Couldn’t we all use a little help in that area?

 

Off I went, the newest little bookworm, diving into Love and Respect for a Lifetime. And boy, did my relationship come out the winner!

This book confirms what we all know about women and men – that we are definitely from different planets. But what it goes on to tell you is just what that means for your relationships with these handsome aliens =)

Little did I know about communicating with my husband. While we get better at it with time, this book truly put it into perspective for me about exactly what he needs from me and the difference in what I need from him. In words and actions.

Not only that, but it incorporated scripture throughout the book!

A winner in my eyes… Who else knows more about us and our needs then our Creator?

While our significant others seem to be the focus of this book, I dare say it will help me in all of my relationships, with men and women. Providing a deeper understanding of what we all want and need can only aid us in communicating and co-existing with one another.

I’m putting it on my dearest love’s nightstand next, I’m also putting it on one of yours!

♥Anyone who is a follower of this blog and comments on this post will be signed up for the Love and Respect for a Lifetime book giveaway, set for Valentine’s Day, February 14th!♥

Could you think of a more appropriate giveaway then a book about love on Valentine’s Day?!

Much love!

  13. Welcome back hon! :) I would love to get my hands on this book. I just got married in June and I just turned 20 in july -- my husband is 22. So yes, we are apart of the stereotypical "at-risk of divorce" group of married individuals because we got married young. I would love to learn more about communication in relationships. We are learning and teaching eachother, but I'm a brat and I'm stuborn...(tehe). *Fingers crossed*
