Love & Respect book Review and Giveaway***CLOSED

Champion Forest Baptist Church in Houston will be hosting a Live Conference with Love & Respect Ministries and Dr. Emerson Eggerichs with his wife Sarah!

Here is some basic information about “Love & Respect”:

Dr. Emerson Eggerichs has discovered one word that can revolutionize any marriage: RESPECT. Love alone is not enough—yes, a wife needs love, but a husband’s deepest need is for respect.

Dr. Eggerichs is an expert in male-female communication and he travels the nation to help couples know how to meet each other’s deepest needs and, in turn, realize stronger, happier relationships. His message about balancing love and respect in a relationship has been resonating with women who can’t understand why their husbands don’t love them back as much as she loves him—and it has also been resonating with men who can't understand why their wives don’t respect them like the people they work or play sports with.

When Eggerichs told the Focus on the Family audience about the Love & Respect connection last year, over 17,000 calls flooded the phone lines in the first 48 hours—with more than 50,000 hits on their website. It was the Number One requested program of the year! Dr. Eggerichs has conducted more than 100 broadcast and print interviews to date, and his book, Love & Respect, sold 100,000 in its first three months of release.

Who would love the opportunity to take the time to invest in their marriage!

Independentmami Book Review: As Valentine's Day is in the air, I had the awesome opportunity to read Love and Respect FOR A LIFETIME. I learned so much from this book, and just as I finish reading it I put the words from this book to good use. You see my husband and I have only been married going on 5 months. We have been together for 4 years. And life complicates things, so I put it. But I never want us to go to the road, where there is no turning back. As the book says, "Women look at the world through pink sunglasses, while men look at that same world through blue sunglasses- - and, believe me, they do not necessarily see the same thing!" I so believe this. Even though I hate to admit, I always want to be right per say everything is always pink in my world. The book explains how women and men differ in their needs and wants. It also explains how simple things can be. Love and Respect are the key words to our and maybe your marriage. I like this book, and would like for other couples to read it. As I read the book, I had my ah-ha moment. I related to the questions, subjects, and topics. My ah-ha moment was hard to swallow but so true. I need Love. I should Respect. I love husband and I when I got married I said I would honor him. I may not remember those words everyday but I will start to use Love and Respect more often, because I vowed til death do us part. The End. Great book. It is a good read.
