One of the healthiest things Lea and I have done in our marriage is read together. After we both agree on a book, I’ll read a chapter or two, and then when she gets time, she’ll do the same. Then we talk about and discuss what we read before moving on in the book. It’s been great for our marriage to read together books like The Shack, Red Hot Monogamy, His Needs Her Needs, Financial Peace and many others.
This time we’d like to give away two books and have two winners. First chosen gets to pick which book they want and second place gets the other book. Both books are fantastic, so second place is still a winner too.
The first book is His Needs Her Needs by Willard Harley. I have to admit that the His Needs Her Needs book (and seminar) has probably been the most influential in mine and Lea’s marriage. Lea agreed and said, “It is the best thing we have done for our marriage.” We’ve probably read, used and recommended this book more than any other book other than the Bible. It has been a marriage changer for us and has helped each of us understand the other better. This may be the most used book in my library and in the marriage counseling I do.
The second book is a book that Lea has raved about. “Love and Respect” by Emerson Eggerich is based on Ephesians 5:33. Simply put, a wife has one driving need–to feel loved. A husband has one driving need–to feel respected. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. This book reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.
Nothing would make Lea and I happier than giving away something that would promote and help build strong marriages. If you don’t win a book, I’d still suggest ordering either one of them. I’m going to use a website called “Random.org” to pick the winners. All you have to do is leave me a comment and it automatically puts your name into the hat. We’ll pick the winner at the end of the week.
Good luck and thanks for reading.
