Life Long Love Affair: A Book Review


About The Book:


Every marriage has a 100% chance of success!
God created marriage to be the most fulfilling and sacred of all human covenants. It was designed to be passionate and rewarding, to meet our deepest needs and desires. And it was meant to last a lifetime. So how do you build an indestructible marriage that is filled with passion, purpose, and excitement?
In Lifelong Love Affair, Jimmy Evans shows you and your spouse how to embrace God's dream for your marriage, cultivate romance and fun, and fulfill each other's spiritual, emotional, and sexual needs.

My Review:
Life Long Love Affair is a the perfect read for an engaged couple that is looking for material for pre-martial counseling (which I highly recommend, and I know is a requirement in many parts of the United States. It is also either highly recommended or a requirement by officiants and pastors in Canada), as it helps a couple to start out with some great, easy to understand and implement tools that will allow your marriage to start off on a solid, Biblically based manner. 
The book is very well-written, and well organized and I loved all the personal stories and inspiration that Evans and his wife are to those reading the book. I also love that the book included a study guide, making this book a great idea for a Young Married Small Group or Sunday School. It is a book not only for engaged or newlywed couples but also for those of us who have been married a little longer (we have been just over 15 years) and need some reminders of how to keep our marriages strong and long lasting! With Valentine's Day just around the corner this would be a wonderful gift idea, as well as for Bridal Shower gifts or a delightful wedding gift.
If you are looking for a great inspiring read, I highly recommend Life Long Love Affair, and give it a huge thumbs up!
