A Marriage Book with a Difference!
A Revolutionary Message "I've been married 35 years and have not heard this taught.""This is the key that I have been missing.""You connected all the dots for me.""As a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material.""You're on to something huge here. A Simple Message A wife has one driving needùto feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving needùto feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn't met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.
A Message That Works Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.

    I was recommended this book by a close friend. Since purchasing book I read it every year as a refresher for my marriage. Every year God increases my knowledge and his Grace abounds the more!

    If you're struggling in your marriage, this book can help you see things from a different point of view (and even allow u to see some positive changes!) if you keep an open mind.

    This is life changing both in marriage & in family. I have used these tools to slow down in an emotionally high times and keep respecting despite the situation wether my hubs or children deserve it. It has been hard at times, easier at others, but over time a softening comes & life changes not just to my spouse & kids, but I softened too (& I needed to be soften just as much as my hubs did). My hubs is starting to respond differently to me now & my kids are too. My kids are even using the verbiage that I picked up from the book and are able to explain how they feel & why they feel disrespected. We still have a way to go, but I know that God used this book & podcast to keep my tired wounded heart from turning away from my husband & to soften my response to my children in elevated situations. I look forward to continuing to grow in this and seeing more change in my family and in my relationships in everyday life. Thanks Emerson & oldest son (I'm sorry I forgot your name).

    Everyone needs to read this book! I am getting my daughter one as she is marrying her prince this weekend. Who knew that saving your marriage could be so easy! Thank you Emerson!!! My husband and I listened to the love and respect podcasts while on a road trip and had the best time discussing and talking and just learning about each other! Wow, is all I can say! We couldn't have paid for a better marriage retreat than what we were experiencing in our own car!

    I finally understand what I've been doing to my husband and vice versa. I believe with this understanding of Love and Respect my marriage can be everything I've always wanted- just never knew how. Thank you for this insight!!!

    My husband and I used this book as curriculum for pre-marital counseling. Not only has it helped our responses towards each other in our marital disagreements later on, but it has changed our attitude towards each other and helped us both realize the motive of why our partner behaves towards us sometimes in an unpleasant manner. It has reassured me that I am not alone, and God's will to have a more successful marriage.
