Book Alert | Making Marriage Beautiful

Making Marriage Beautiful by Dorothy Littell Greco was an awesome read to enhance any relationship!

This book is good! I was highlighting and flagging pages in the first chapter. My bad, where are my manners? {clears throat} Hey Mamas! Today I want to tell you all about my latest read, Making Marriage Beautiful by Dorothy Littell Greco. Dorothy and her husband Christopher have been married for 20 years. She openly states in the intro she’s no marriage expert and does not have a perfect marriage. I love that she laid it on the table. Her open honesty makes me trust her writing and experiences more. 

Ok, more about the book. Making Marriage Beautiful is an easy read with mind opening, thought provoking scenarios. It’s like she surveyed her relationship (pre and post nuptials) with the knowledge and maturity she has now, recognized the errors and gave suggestions on how to fix them. Does that make sense? Kinda like “if I knew then what I know now”. Each chapter ends with Going Deeper which is five or so questions to help you better understand your spouse’s point of view and the errors of your ways. I found the Going Deeper questions enlightening.

Did I mention Gary Chapman wrote the foreward?!

Dorothy touches on topics such as:

  • Changing after marriage
  • Unrealistic expectations
  • Disappointments and anger
  • Being a better listener
  • Addictions
  • Confessions and forgiveness
  • Suffering
  • Community
  • Sacrificial love

Making Marriage Beautiful opened my eyes to some of my habits that may be a hindrance to my relationship with B. By recognizing those habits I can now correct them which will make us both happier. Everyone wins!

All in all this book is pretty dang awesome! I enjoyed reading it and will be referring back to periodically.
