hey guys thanks for clicking on this video i’m so glad you’re here this is another video that was sparked by a comment from one of you guys that i figured i would compile some of my favorite books on marriage or whether you’re married single dating whatever i feel like these books helped prepare me and my heart for marriage and also while being married it has helped me view marriage in different ways and just helped me be excited about marriage and just i don’t know convicted and challenged so i have a whole stack of books here of just some recommendations that i have read recently if you have a favorite that is not mentioned in here or even if it is mentioned let me know in the comments and we can all just glean off of each other’s favorite books on marriage let’s start the first one i want to mention is the meaning of marriage by timothy keller and nick and i both have this book it was our pre-marriage counseling book so it was it is chock full of extremely extremely good information on marriage so i highly recommend this before you get married even before you get engaged this is a great one to just know more about marriage what the purpose of marriage is but even as you are married i feel like this book is so so good um nick and i were trying to read it this this year together we got this far so not even halfway oh well this might actually be nick’s copy but anyways it looks like it has coffee still all over it it’s mine but i don’t remember if i highlighted in mine this has highlights i don’t know i can’t this one’s clean though so i don’t know anyways we both really like this book hopefully we can get to finishing it next year we’ll see second one i want to recommend and i’ve mentioned it in a few videos recently just because it’s the most recent one that i’m reading i’m actually not finished with it yet i’m really close to finishing it though i have that this much left this is love that lasts by jeff and alyssa bethke and i truthfully didn’t think i was going to enjoy this one as much as i do i thought it would just be just kind of a run-of-the-mill marriage book i didn’t think it was going to be super challenging i thought that it would just be there might be some things that i liked i figured there was going to be things that i didn’t like but honestly this book has really really surprised me i’ve thoroughly enjoyed it this is a little bit more of a relaxed type of read just because it’s more of them telling their love story and i i really actually enjoy those kinds of books where um it just feels more personal it feels more authentic and i just i just have to say i know i haven’t finished the book but i really really like this so i do highly recommend picking this up i have quoted this multiple times like i said even in recent videos i quoted this one so yeah i’m pleasantly surprised by this and i’m excited to finish it soon all right the next one is kind of similar to that but this is a love letter life by jeremy and audrey roloff and i did do a full review of this forever ago whenever i first read it and this is similar to jeff and alyssa’s because it is like a storytelling type one but i was so i just thoroughly enjoyed listening to their love story and i was so motivated reading this and wanting to just kind of spice up my own relationship in marriage and just do fun things like they did so um i wouldn’t say that this is necessarily like this is gonna really teach you about marriage and really dive in deep like the meaning of marriage that one’s like punching you in the face pretty much with like truth and hard uh conviction but this is more of like a fun read but i felt like it was challenging in the fact that it just was really inspiring so yeah if you want to be inspired and also read a cute love story i recommend this one all right the next one i want is more so focused on a christ-centered wedding which it’s literally called a christ centered wedding my friend gifted it to me right before we got married we had a very very short engagement less than three months but i read this and it helped with the wedding planning so so so much so if you are wanting a book that’s kind of tailored to more of the engagement period and planning your wedding this is a great great one it really encourages you to have a wedding that is meaningful and is totally centered around the gospel or around jesus and i am so thankful for this book because i feel like it really really helped me plan our wedding to glorify god so highly recommend this one if you are an engagement period and you are planning for your wedding and you want it to be christ-centered super super good one oh who wrote this one um catherine strode parks and linda strode so i think it’s a mother and daughter one’s from nashville tennessee how fun and then the last two i’m going to mention i actually haven’t read yet but i’m really excited to read and i know that i have heard rave reviews on these so the first one is sacred marriage by gary thomas i still have this little sticker on it i got this at the thrift store probably should have taken this off before i did the video but here we are this one has been on my want to read list for a very long time and i still haven’t gotten around to it but i’ve heard such great things about this book and i read or i listened to an audiobook by gary thomas what was it when to walk away or something like that i’ll have it on the screen that’s what i listened to on audiobook and i really enjoyed it so i am looking forward to this one and then to accompany this one is also for christian women out there this is called sacred influence and so this kind of goes in tandem with this one i don’t know if there’s a version for a guy um but this one is how god uses wives to shape the souls of their husbands so i’m i’m assuming that there is also a version for the men so if you want to check out these two i’ve heard great things about them and i’m very excited to dive into them i don’t know when i’m gonna get around to them but hopefully soon i have so many books i want to read i’m currently reading like four or five books hopefully i get them done by the end of the year and then i can do my end of the year book wrap up which by the way it’s been a long time since i sat down and did like a book video so hopefully you guys liked it but here are my recommendations um for books on marriage and preparing for marriage and also preparing for your wedding day so hopefully you found this helpful if you did i would love it if you gave it a thumbs up and leave any other suggestions i’m seriously i’m getting all of my video ideas from you guys so thank you so much for suggesting this and i hope it was helpful to you guys i’ll see you in my next video bye [Music] you
