Love & Respect: the book

 from the back of the book…

A Simple Message
A wife has one driving need – to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need – to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy.

A Message That Works

Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other.


I’ve been reading this book on and off for a while now, and finally finished it.   David and I viewed the dvd set of lessons, last year, which were excellent.  The book follows closely and lets you linger in certain sections.  This information has helped David and I slow down the “crazy cycle.” We still have a lot to learn about loving and respecting each other but our eyes have been enlightened to what God calls us to and we continue to ask for the grace to help us to walk in it.

I highly recommend both the book and dvd lesson set.  We’ve watched them over and over and even let our teens view them for their future relationships.  There is a lot of practical suggestions in how to apply these principles to life.

Here is the Love and Respect website to get a look at this resources along with articles written on the topic of marriage.  There is also a schedule of conferences too.
