Today I am privileged to review "The Marriage Project" by Kathi Lipp. This is a must-have read for spouses everywhere. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am already putting some of her ideas to good use- and seeing the results!
Kathi's book is a wonderful journey for any couple to embark on to enhance, enrich and encourage their relationship. If you've got a great marriage, her ideas and projects will only serve to make it better. If your marriage is a little rough around the edges, this book will give you more than enough material to get you started towards harmony and togetherness.
I've been married for almost 25 years and found Kathi's insights and points to be refreshing reminders of what I can do to encourage, support and cheer my husband on. She wrote about quite a few things that made me think, "Oh, really? So such-and-such doesn't just happen at MY house?" Always good to know!
Her book is designed with flexibility in mind, which I love. The ideal way to use the book is to go through all of the projects and exercises with another couple, but she encourages husbands and/or wives to do the projects alone if your spouse isn't feeling like a team player (and you still want to use the ideas she gives you). It can be tailored to meet any marriage right where it is, which is one of the book's many strengths.
Here's a little bit about the author:
