I LOVE the book blurb:
"Plucking petals off daisies or making a pros and cons list can sometimes be helpful. But there’s a better way to decide whom to marry and if you are ready. Using the family proclamation~"
And that is exactly what the author does.
We are not here to just "eat, drink, and be merry..."
There is a plan~
We are here on earth to learn, to progress, and to love.
And a family is central to that plan!
Who you marry is key!
Each chapter takes a section of the Family Proclamation and ties it into how to prepare for marriage and what to look for in a marriage partner.
*Understanding the plan
*Coming to know yourself
*Love or Lust?
*The sacred duty of parenthood
*Inviting Christ into your marriage
*Nine foundation stones for marriage
As you wait for that special someone there are things you can do right now to prepare yourself to BE a special someone.
While this book was specifically written for those looking to get married...
I think it is a GREAT RESOURCE for married couples to read and study to help re-evaluate where they are and look to see if they are still following the principles outlined in the proclamation.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
