The Mediterranean Love Plan by Stephen and Misty Arterburn with BeckyJohnson
Are you looking to spice up your love life? If you are looking for some fun ideas to keep the passion, romance and fun in your marriage The Mediterranean Love Plan could be the book for you.
Stephen and Misty Arterburn share ideas for keeping their relationship interesting. With a subtitle of Seven Secrets to Life-long Passion, The Mediterranean Love Plan reveals ways to enhance aspects of your relationship: through attunement, playfulness, savoring food, enjoying beauty, creativity, health and longevity, and blending the sacred with the sexual.
The Arterburns (along with writer Becky Johnson) share many examples from their own lives, examples from other couples they know and research from countries all over the world, with emphasis on the Mediterranean countries. Stephen and Misty share how these other cultures often include these 7 relationship aspects into their daily lives better than our American culture. The end of each chapter includes a list of practical ways to apply the concepts you just learned to your own relationship. I think this is nice because you can quickly go back and see these ideas and share them with your spouse and put what you learned into practice.
I found The Mediterranean Love Plan to have some good ideas in it to enhance my own marriage. I also thought there were some ideas I already knew but it was good to have a refresher since I don't always implement what I know as much as I could. I think this book could be helpful to newly married couples as well as those who have been married quite awhile who need some new ideas to refresh their love life together. It could be a nice wedding gift, shower gift, or anniversary gift. . .or a gift to yourselves to read on vacation and spice up you lives when you are more relaxed and open to new ideas.
I received this book at no charge from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
