Great Parents, Lousy Lovers Book Review

Great Parents, Lousy Lovers is written by Dr. Gary Smalley, PH.D and Ted Cunningham. Dr. Smalley is an older man who has worked with Ted on several occasions, and likes the way his mind works. Ted is a married man with kids and is a man of faith,very active with his church.
This books is a must for anyone who has wrapped their loves solely around their children and has forgotten how to be a loving partner. I related to so many things in this book! For instance, One of the Chapters titles is (see if this doesnt sound like you)-Preparing for Change-you might be a great parent, lousy lover if you feel like a cook,maid, or shuttle and you run your home like a hotel! The interesting part of this is it is written in daily life terms. At the end of each chapter you are given ideas/assignments that you can do with your spouse to help strenghten your relationship.  No one likes being in a rut of any kind, but this is so common that I think is a shame.  I believe that a home should be well balanced, even though it is very hard to do. I like this book for how it is written and the guidance to lead you in the right direction. It also reminds us that our marriage is  a joining of two people under God, who wants us to be happy. This a MUST BUY for anyone looking to strenghten their marriage.
FTC Rules State that I must tell you that I have received a copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers, I received no compensation.
