Cherish by Gary Thomas
Traditional wedding vows often have spouses vowing to love and to cherish each other. However, if you are like me, you remember that you are to love each other but that word, "cherish" can get lost in the day to day life after saying those vows. Cherish by bestselling author Gary Thomas helps spouses understand just what it means to truly cherish their spouse.
Cherish offers a lot of practical insights and advice to living a better life as a couple, cherishing your spouse and making your marriage better then you could imagine. Throughout the book, Thomas shares stories from his marriage, from other couples and wisdom from the Bible to help you better understand the art of cherishing your spouse. This book is easy to read and understand. . .and honestly helps you want to cherish your spouse better each day as you read through it.
I have to say Cherish was such a helpful book for me on marriage. I could see so many ways that I could better cherish my husband after reading this book. I could also see how that could help our marriage be better all the way around. I highly recommend Cherish to everyone and anyone who is married or who wants to be married. I think this book would make an excellent wedding gift. I wish I had had this book earlier in our marriage so I could have better understood how to cherish my husband sooner. I also have to add that the story in the epilogue left me in tears and left me wanting that kind of lifetime marriage. I also like how Thomas ends the book, "If it pleases God, may this book multiply such stories until his church is filled with husbands who deeply cherish their wives and wives who eagerly and generously cherish their husbands until the very end." I hope with Thomas that Cherish does indeed bless many couples with that kind of marriage.
I received this book from Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
