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.

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

Juana writes from her heart as she exposes her journey of marriage brokenness and reconciliation, giving readers hope for the future and motivation to embrace true intimacy with God.

Review Of Team Us: Marriage Together by Ashleigh Slater

Marriage requires a ton of investment and intentional growth. My husband and I have faced our share of challenges and I am confident will continue to face them, ones that both weaken us and help us grow. One of the greatest struggles we have encountered comes naturally to think about, but is difficult see happen in our relationship and that is seeing us and believing we are a team! As husband and wife, we aim to be a team, we desire to work together in all areas of life, and we are passionate about experiencing marriage together in a joyful way. However, when disagreements,  frustrations and sins affect us, we tend to do everything else but be a team. Why? Because it requires investment, work,
