The Love & Respect Experience by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs

Having read Dr. Eggerichs' book Love and Respect, I was curious to see what this devotional book would be like. I liked the subtitle..." A Husband-Friendly Devotional That Wives Truly Love".
It is set up into manageable chapters that are easy to use on a daily basis but he suggests using one chapter a week (thus there are 52 chapters). This gives time for what you read to sink in and for you to put it into action. I liked the fact that he starts off with a preface explaining how to use the book. He even says that for husbands you can stop at any step of the instructions and let that be it. Each chapter has a Bible verse, writing, insight, action and prayer. The instructions are the key point that make this a husband friendly book and I would not skip over these to get straight to the devotions at all.
He covers many topics that are helpful to married couples in understanding each other, accepting each other, and focusing on what God has for you to do instead of what God has for your mate to do.

Some of my favorite chapters were "Who is on Your Mental Committee?",
"Your Children are Watching" and "No Matter How You Feel Trust Scripture More Than Your Feelings".

I think this is a great book for couples and may even be better because of the ease of reading than his original book. I also liked the cover which feels soft and leathery . Very manly.
