Marriage is…

Lately I have been reading the amazing book Messy Beautiful Love by Darlene Schacht. Let me just say….get this book. It is seriously amazing! Her story keeps you reading to know how the Lord turned her life around- and turned her heart back to her husband. She speaks with truth- this is a must-get book for any wife!

Marriage is a Thousand Little Things

I’ve been married for six months now…and Luke and I have been together for two and a half years. But this book has been such a blessing to me. I love the challenges at the end of the chapter and the emphasis on showing grace to your spouse.

Marriage is Friendship

Here is my favorite quote from the current chapter I am in-

“Love is deliberate, it’s intentional, it’s purposeful, and in the end it’s worth every minute that you give of yourself to another. Marriage is a thousand little things. It’s giving up your right to be right in the heat of an argument. It’s forgiving another when he lets you down. It’s friendship. It’s grace. It’s giving of yourself tirelessly down paths you never imagined you would travel”

What book has been speaking to you lately?

  1. I’ve heard good things about this book! I’m not married yet, but I’m sure I could learn a lot from it. I think I need to check it out.

  2. What a very true quote on marriage. I’ve found marriage to be a constant learning process, that’s for sure!

  3. Love that quote! Marriage is a constant work of art…learning to give, to compromise, to stand firm, and to always be respectful and loving. Sounds like a great book!

  4. What truth! I love that marriage is friendship and giving of yourself — so true! oh..and grace 😀 yes. I’ve been loving “The Best Yes” — learning how to navigate through life’s choices in order to have space to give God your Best Yes 🙂

  5. Love this so much! I totally agree successful marriage is based on friendship. I like to think that true love (and marriage) doesn’t make you suffer, it makes you sacrifice. Marriage is a wonderful gift. Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings!
