What Happened To Happily Ever After?

Fairytale romances are what many of us dream of. It's what we are taught from a very young age to expect, dream and hope for.
Why then are so many of us are finding out that the "happily ever after" just isn't as easy as we thought it would be? Where did our happily ever after go?
So many of us are hoping to someday have the marriage of our dreams but we just don't know how to get there. We were not taught how to handle the reality of life crashing in on our dreams!

Love and War: the Devotional is an 8 week couples devotional based on John and Stasi Eldredge's Love and War book released earlier this year. (Click here to read that review)

From John and Stasi Eldredge:

"We invite you to walk alongside us for eight weeks - five days a week-and dive
deeper into the realities of your marriage. We'll focus on...the heart of God, the heart that he placed in you, and the heart he has placed in your spouse."

From the publisher:

Is your relationship with your spouse far from the union you’d hoped it would be?

John and Stasi Eldredge know about the realities of marriage—and they know
why it’s so important to take hold of the dreams you once had and see God
fulfill them. In this eight-week devotional, John and Stasi will guide you and
your spouse to see God’s heart for your marriage more clearly.

This life-changing guide includes new insights, encouraging Scriptures, and practical exercises that will help you develop a personal plan for a vibrant marriage.

My Impressions:

This is a faith based, sound and realistic devotional for couples to use together to build and maintain a marriage that is all they wish for. The authors clearly state that maintaining a marriage is HARD work but through that work, through prayer and God's help, the marriage that you dream of can be re-discovered.

This book works well as a stand alone devotional but in my opinion it works best in conjunction with the Love and War book released earlier this year. I feel that everyone can benefit from this devotional no matter what state your marriage is in. I highly recommend this book!

I have heard about John Eldredge but I have never read any of his books. It sounds good!
