Reviews of Christian Marriage Books & Movies

I started reading marriage books to improve the condition of my relationship with my husband. I felt led to write reviews that included how each resource helped my marriage to encourage other couples to use some of these tools to promote growth in their relationships and to give better understanding of what each resource is. I want to urge all husbands and wives to nurture their marriages by choosing the right resources based on their needs.

This Is For Everyone Who Feels Like Giving Up

The feeling of giving up has a wide array of accompanying emotions. Depression, anger, confusion, frustration, sadness, bitterness, exhaustion… Have you been there? Are you in that place of giving up right now? We all face different types of circumstances that test us and challenge us. Being confronted with the thought of giving up as emotions swirl around your heart is never an easy thing to experience or navigate. Personally, I remember feeling like I didn’t know what else to do or where to go. I felt like giving up was the only option. Until a friend one day encouraged me to hang on. I didn’t know what that looked like or if I had the strength to, but just hearing someone else cheer me on

Now is the time for prayer. We need to be spending time in prayer for one another, for marriages to be strengthened, for families to turn their hearts toward God, for change, for healing, for restoration, for revival.

This Could Change Your Marriage: War Room Movie Review

War Room. You need to see this movie. This movie opens with a voice talking about the wars we face, while the visual being a husband and wife arguing. That opening scene ended with the words: Victories don’t come by accident.” That is when I pulled out my phone to take a few notes. I came to the movies for enjoyment, but I knew from that opening scene that it would be an impactful movie – one that I would need to share about. We all desire victories in life, especially in our marriage. However, are we willing to spend intentional time praying and trusting God for these victories? The plot follows the relationship between a husband and wife, along with their daughter, as well

Devotions For A Healthier You by Katie Farrell – Book Review

Devotions For A Healthier You by Katie Farrell is a stunning resource. It is a hardcover book with beautiful images complementing some incredible content. This book includes tips, meal plans and recipes aimed at feeding the mind, body, and soul. In the first few pages, Katie shares Prayers For Health where she takes scripture and turns them into prayers. I love that she added this in there as a great way to show examples of how we can use scripture to help us pray and communicate to God daily. Here are a few of her prayers: Today I will take care of my body, for I am God’s masterpiece, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which He has prepared in advance for me

Unveiled Wife Book Review No More Headaches by Juli Slattery

Book Review of “No More Headaches” by Juli Slattery

No More Headaches, Enjoying Sex and Intimacy In Marriage is the number one book on my list of great reads! Dr. Juli Slattery encompasses the gift of sex God has created within the boundaries of marriage, sharing examples of her own marriage, as well as others marital testimonials. Each story is unique, yet relatable and relative, provoking the reader to examine his/her own marriage. She dives into heavy topics without hesitation, providing wisdom and knowledge about what is permissible within the covenant of marriage, not with black and white rules, but allowing the reader to comprehend and conclude for themselves what is allowed based on God’s word. There is a tremendous amount of depth shared about what sex and intimacy is from the man’s perspective,

Own Your Life By Sally Clarkson – Book Review

I had the privilege of meeting Sally Clarkson early last year. As I was waiting with a few other women, including her daughter in a conference room where she was hosting Mom Heart, our chatting was interrupted by a light-hearted lyric being sung by Sally as she entered the room dancing and skipping with joy overflowing. This first impression made me smile from ear to ear. I have been blessed getting to know Sally all the more this last year. She is real, humble, passionate, and joyful. The light of Christ radiates from her, as does her sincere concern and care for others. Sally created the Mom Heart Conference in 1998 and has been faithfully leading it with her husband, Clay, ever since. She has
