This week on Sharin’ Hearts: The Fireside Bookshelf, Ginger Green takes the book “9 Must-Have Conversations for a Doubt-Free Wedding Day” by Gary Thomas and Drs Steve and Rebecca Wilke and gives us an inside look.
There are a lot of challenges in life but making and keeping a happy marriage is a rare art form. Less than 1% of marriages worldwide ever make it to the 50 year anniversary. Expectations for an intimate relationship most of the time are based on desires, personal needs and wants. When those are not fulfilled the pain and disappointments of living exposes our true character and independent personalities. People are not prepared to preserve and sacrifice for what they once held so dear.
Having the RIGHT premarital counseling can establish the priority of any marriage and set the goals for a couple that will thrive and not just survive in a “me first” society. Marriage wasn’t created just to make us happy, but to merge two lives into one for the ultimate glory of God. Helpful hints from this book can make falling in love a life long passion for staying in love.
