Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.
~Rainer Maria Rilke
My Michael and I were readers long before we married.
And we continue the habit of reading since joining hands and hearts.
First and foremost and forever will be the Bible. Michael reads it aloud to us each morning before we pray, and we spend individual reading time in the Word as well.
We read books that boost our faith and help us grow as disciples.
We read George MacDonald novels aloud.
And we love to read books about marriage.
They help us grow our union healthy. They teach us things we didn’t know or perhaps forgot. They inspire us with stories of other couples overcoming odds and sharing life in this grand and sometimes dizzying adventure called marriage.
So I thought you might like a peek at our marriage bookshelf. After God’s Word, these are some titles we’ve read over the last few years — books that can help you and your husband in areas where marriages typically need tending.

Wishing you and your man a happy, blessed Friday and a restful, love full weekend.
May you get a chance to exhale, reconnect, have a little fun and open a good book.
