About the Book:
Transform your marriage with this revitalizing relationship guide that challenges couples to answer important questions together and grow in mutual understanding.
In our modern, fast-paced society, it is easy for couples to drift apart and suddenly find their marriages in need of serious help. If this sounds familiar, then Pastor Jeff Helton and his wife Lora have a challenge for you: sit down once a week with your spouse to answer a question together. It could be something as simple as “What makes you laugh out loud?” or as deep and challenging as “If you had one day left on earth, what would you say to your spouse?” or “Are you satisfied with our level of physical intimacy?”
The 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge is a fun book specifically designed to spark open and honest conversation between partners at any stage of married life. Each short chapter includes an engaging question, a brief message, an encouraging quote, a Bible scripture, and a prayer. The short messages bring hope to rocky marriages by providing a safe, gentle space for discussing important matters, such as communication, conflict, in-laws, finances, children, sex, and much more.
By taking the 50 Fridays Marriage Challenge, husbands and wives will find that their Friday evening talks—whether they laugh together, delve deep into the topic at hand, or plan and dream for the future—may be the only time they spend in close conversation that doesn’t involve the kids, the checking account, or who took out the trash. Spend a few precious moments together once a week with this book, and you will ultimately see your marriage transformed.
I've enjoyed reading this book and I'm going to share it with my husband. Just about anything you read about marriage says that communication is the key to being happy together and remaining part of the same team. This book gives you a framework for almost a year of discussions, some serious, some fun, some spiritual and some sexy. Each chapter begins with a question.That is followed by a short discussion that includes scripture quotes. Some of the questions are:
- What hobbies or activities do you enjoy in your marriage? What other things would you like to do together?
- What specific changes would you like to see that could help grow a more intimate, pleasurable and satisfying sex life?
- What things scare you? When you look ahead to the next few months, what things are you afraid of or concerned about?
- Where do you see God's faithfulness and mercy in your life and in your marriage? What things are you thankful for this season?
