Today it is hard to connect, with your spouse, with your kids, with your extended family.  Everyone is busy, on the go.  Appointments, meetings and life rush us around like crazy.  Jim and Cathy Burns have given us a Devotional book with fifty two devotions designed to draw couples closer together. 

There is no huge list of how to do this devotional, you can work at your own pace, they do suggest committing or investing thirty minutes a week to each other and to do this devotional book.  Each devotion has a scripture it is based on, then a commentary to go with it, then it is followed by a section called faith conversations, which is starting lines for a conversation to have to build your faith in each other and in God.  The final section of the devotion is called A Step Closer, and usually includes a written assignment or a discussion assignment for you to do.  A very appealing and easy to follow devotional lay out. 

They cover topics vital to keeping a marriage strong topics such as romance, love, how to handle a high maintenace marriage, and many more.  These devotions are interesting and you will enjoy sharing this book with your beloved.  A great marriage tool. 222 pages $19.99 US 4 stars
