“To me, the only marriage I want is a marriage that is sacred through and through…The best marriages are achieved by living for something else and letting that something else come back and lift up our marriages. The key to a happy marriage that becomes ever happier is a magnificent obsession outside of marriage.” – Gary Thomas
There are so many books on love, marriage, and growing in faith, but Gary Thomas does a wonderful job blending them all together in A Lifelong Love. This book is ideal for marriages in all stages – just beginning, struggling, or in the golden years. Filled with faith-based reflections, advice rooted in Christian teaching, and offering questions for discussion at the end of each chapter, this book is a valuable tool for strengthening any marriage. Thomas’ primary focus is on loving your partner as God does and seeing them through His eyes. While it may not always be easy, the emphasis on bringing God into your marriage, and finding complete contentment by following Him in word and deed is what will ultimately lead to complete happiness within your marriage.
