Review

This is the best relationship books I’ve ever encountered. It helped me see how my marriage was getting into a really negative pattern.  Because it focuses so much on what you SHOULD be doing, instead of the negatives, it helps you to connect and bond as a couple.  By applying the principles in this book and making them habits, our relationship is more positive, fun, and even exciting.  I decided that I would use this to teach a marriage class at church so others can benefit as I did.   This book can literally save your relationship.

    Amazon Price: $11.82

    Book Description: 

    When Tyler and Analee got married, they read marriage books, learned about each other’s personality and habits, and exhausted three-step relational formulas. Yet a year and a half after their wedding, they had fallen into a pattern of fighting and unhappiness.Tyler knew he and his wife needed more than formulas and counseling sessions. They needed a vision for marriage that extended beyond just finding happiness and falling in love. They wanted a vision that dealt with the realities of life and gave them a picture of marriage worth fighting for.As a business professional who helps companies “rebrand” when their image doesn’t match up with their identity, Tyler realized that marriage has an image that doesn’t match up to what God designed it to be.Marriage Rebranded will help you replace four modern misconceptions about marriage with more timeless perspectives enlightened by biblical, personal, and historical studies.We need to rethink our modern brand of matrimony. It’s time for us to develop a new vision for marriage-a vision that’s worth fighting for.

    Author Tyler Ward is one clever man.  He took his vocation of rebranding and used it to make us take a new look at how we as a culture and a people of faith perceive the institution of marriage.  Basically, he gave marriage a new look! Ward makes several valid points and shares insights for those newly married, helping them view marriage in such a way that will position them to be in it for the long haul.  This makes a great addition to a shower or wedding gift or to use in premarital counseling.

      Review

      My daughter is getting married this year and I wanted to get her this book, so I thought I would read it myself first.  I am so glad I did.  While this book gives excellent advice for the couple-to-be or newlyweds, it also is a great reminder for older couples on getting back to the basics and sparking romance in your marriage. There is a lot of great advice here packed in an easy to read, small book, so as not to overwhelm.  I highly recommend it!
