The Love & Respect Experience Book Review

Book Review of The Love & Respect Experience by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs
"A Husband-Friendly Devotional that Wives Truly Love"

     The Love and Respect Experience is a companion for Eggerichs' original book entitled Love and Respect.   Although, I was delighted to know that these books can be used alone.  This book is a tool to help delve deeper into your marital relationship.  It uses the accurate principles from the original book, and helps you apply them to your own life through a weekly devotional.  The book is set up with 52 devotions, one for each week of the year.  Each one is a few pages of insightful reading, coupled with a petition to pray and a call to action.  If you want to go even further, you can bring in Appendix A-D, for tools like discussion questions and further understanding on why couples devotions are invaluable.  Eggerichs also spells out different ways couples can approach this book, which makes it possible for any couple, no matter the schedule, to fit it in weekly. Husbands really love this book, because it's weekly, not a daily commitment.  The books offers something they can "do" all week in action (since they are doers by nature).  Women love it, because they are still getting that intimate time with their spouses.  After all...we are simple creatures. 
    Eggerichs hit a home run with this publication.  It's really the whole package for any married couple - whether you are going through a season of abundance or drought.  His principles are truly timeless and boil down to...respecting your husband makes him love you deeper....deeply loving your wife makes her respect you.  It truly is a cycle in which we'd all like to be on.  This book stays true to life and it's circumstances.  I'm excited to continue this devotional, at my husband's side.
