My Thoughts

I loved this book and highly recommend it to engaged as well as married couples.  Rick Johnson draws upon his marriage of thirty-two years, to the same woman, for his wisdom to write this book, yet he is the first to state that he is not an expert on the subject of women.  I think he is.

This book is not only written to men, from a husband’s perspective, but is also written to wives, enlightening us as to the secrets contained in our relationship.  It is filled with humorous anecdotes from the author’s life, yet his wise, sage advice will motivate us to be more attentive toward our better half.  Romancing Your Better Half  will inspire you to be a more intimate spouse, or give you marriage tools for your upcoming relationship with your fiancé.

God created marriage.  It is our job to discover and embrace the intimacy He designed for those who choose to marry.  This book will reignite the passion in your marriage.
