Love & War Devotional for Couples by John and Staci Eldridge

John & Staci Eldredge have together written an excellent devotional for couples! My husband and I both read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. The book is divided into weeks with a different topic for each week. These include:
Remembering What We Wanted
The Two Shall Become One
The Journey
Companionship
Your Souse is Not Your Enemy
The Little Foxes
Increasing Intimacy
The Most Excellent Way

There are 5 devotions per week and these are broken down into an opening verse, a reflection, a prayer and a closing verse.  It took us less than 5 minutes to read and discuss these.  Prayer is a weak point for us so having the pre-written prayers was very helpful to give us a place to start.  the last day of the week includes an exercise.  The exercises are designed to have you reflect inwardly on the questions and then honestly and openly discuss them with your spouse.

We are always on the lookout for devotionals we can read through together. One of our favorites is 'Nightlight' by the Dobson's.  This devotional has quickly become another favorite for us. It is not time consuming, yet it encourages discussion and a closer relationship. I would recommend it to any and all couoples who want to grow closer to Christ in their marriage.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
