Loving Your Spouse Book Review

download

When I was approached by Gary Chapman’s publicist about reviewing Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away, I was excited. I enjoyed reading his book The 5 Love Languages. Also, I had the honor to contribute a story in his book Love is a Verb

Dr. Chapman is the Director of Marriage and Family Life Consultants and shares his advice based on his 35+ years of experience counseling couples.

One simple tool I took away from reading his new book is looking at how my own thoughts, feelings, and actions impact my husband.

I highly recommend reading Loving Your Spouse When You Feel Like Walking Away.

Blessings, Rebecca

When I was approached to review Gary Chapman’s latest book Things I Wish I Known Before Becoming Parents, I jumped at the opportunity.  I love his work, especially The 5 Love Languages. Also, I am a contributing writer for Love is a Verb. Plus, his latest collaboration with Shannon Warden is a perfect topic for my parenting blog.

About the Book

Gary shares what he wishes he and his wife had known before having kids. For example, children affect your time, money, marriage – and that’s just the beginning. With his trademark warmth, he offers practical advice on everything from potty training to the importance of apologizing to your child to keeping your marriage strong…all the while celebrating the great joy that children bring.

Review

I really enjoyed reading their book; especially Chapter 9 The Social Skills are as Important as the Academic Skills.  I am a preschool teacher and we spend the majority of our time teaching our students how to share and to say “please” and “thank you.” Gary confirms its importance, and I reinforce this positive behavior in my own home with my tween and teen children.
