From This Day Forward by Craig and Amy Groeschel {A Book Review}

When I began attending Church of the Highlands in Birmingham nearly 7 years ago, one of the first guest pastors that I heard speak was Craig Groeschel. His sermons are something special and they have always drawn me in. Over the years, I have listened to many of his sermon series, tuned in online for his church's services, and read many of his books. 

I am always interested in reading books that can help Matt and I to maintain a healthy marriage and to help us during any tough times we may have. When I saw this book, From This Day Forward: Five Commitments to Fail-Proof Your Marriage, written by Craig and his wife, Amy. I knew I wanted to read it. 

My husband and I read the majority of the book together and then because of time constraints with him working overnight, we finished it separately. We both agreed it was a great book. Several of the points were information we already knew and were incorporating into our marriage but there was definitely new information learned. This book will be a great resource for us in the future as well as anyone we know who is getting married or could use some encouragement in their marriage. 

Craig and Amy present 5 main points in the From This Day Forward that will help guide your marriage into being fail-proof. The points are: 
1. Seek God. 
2. Fight Fair. 
3. Have Fun. 
4. Stay Pure. 
5. Never Give Up. 

Each chapter is dedicated to one point and really goes into depth about that point. At the end of each chapter, Amy chimes in with her angle which is refreshing. It's not often you get both the male and female approaches in one book. 

I enjoyed this book and tucked away of a few of the points to help me grow my relationship with Matt. This is a great resource for any married couple or couple engaged. 

We will keep this and re-read in the future. 

Thanks, Craig and Amy!
