Helping to understand your spouse.
Understanding the difference between blue and pink glasses.
Presented perfectly using God's word and teachings of how to apply to any marriage dynamic whether in crisis or seeking more perfectness
All of it
Lots of scripture to back up teachings!!!! Awesome
I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
I didn't feel like I needed this but I am glad I listened to it. My marriage has not been difficult but this was a good slap in the face to remind me to work harder even though things are really good.
Wouldn't LISTEN again, but would consider READING it. It's worth studying the verses in your Bible, and listening doesn't make that aspect very conducive. Great read, though.
Not applicable. The "characters" in the story are you and your spouse.
I learned so much from this book. Incredible teaching! Expect to be humbled. There is so much for every wife and every husband to learn from this book. Every marriage could improve from this read.
Really being able to understand my other half from both a biblical and practical view.
What made this so good? It really works if you really apply it. Learning why men tick the way they do ( and women ) has transformed how I interact with the opposite sex. The teaching was not only funny, but filled with AH HA moments of understanding. What better investment than to learn how to make your relationships better? It really has changed for the better how I view the opposite sex and has blessed my home. My other half listed to it as well and when getting into a heated moment we both smile knowing how we can deal with it for the better. A must listen if you want to transform your relationships for the better.
I did recommend this audio book to 3 friends already. This book is based on scripture from the bible. This book is very thought provoking. You really have to be able to die to self and think about some of the authors thoughts. It is hard to hear how much society has changed all of our roles. I do hold a demanding job outside of the home, my husband and I have gotten the kids to college and we have had a happy marriage. Still I learned plenty of thinks that I can work on to show my husband respect. I have seen that showing him respect really does automatically cause him to be more loving and happy.
Heck, I even started to understand part of the reason that my dad might have been such an angry man for so many years.
The content of the material is exactly what goes on in our homes! Some marriages have many difficult problems and some have lesser issues but, everyone can benefit from this book.
If I show my husband respect he will in turn act more loving. My husband likes shoulder to shoulder communication (not girl talk)! I do not have to do it all by myself.
Great book. I will listen to it many times. To be honest, you really need to get the long version of the book on Audible. The shortened version leaves out a lot of good information. I listened to the book and read the book.
Yes, I would listen to it again because I want to take notes the second time around. Really, the material is that important!
How right on it it. How real the examples are -- my husband and I could relate to about 90% of the examples and found the section on what to do eye-opening.
All of it.
That what I need to do above all else in my marriage, is respect my husband unconditionally.
This book is excellent!
The Content of Love and Respect was excellent, and Emerson is an extraordinarily expressive reader. The first third of the book felt like it was the same message repeated over and over again--to extend grace to your spouse and be the first one to change--but that's probably a good thing because it's absolutely essential.
The specific breakdown of love and respect into six points via the acronyms COUPLE and CHAIRS were especially helpful. There are lots of books that tell husbands to love and wives to respect, but never with nearly as much explanation and practical application as this book has.
My one gripe is that I purchased this book to 'read' along with my girlfriend, like we do with many other books, reading one chapter at a time and then talking about it. Because this audiobook does not give chapter numbers, there is no way for me to know what chapter I'm on or where I am relative to her.
The narrator's voice was pleasant
When I realized that a lot of things I had been doing were "wrong" when it came to communicating with the opposite sex.
