Every Man's Battle    

by Arterburn & Stoeker with Yorkey

This book is on sexual integrity and is very blunt and open about the problems that face most men.  If this is not an issue with your mate then consider yourself blessed.  Some men don't even talk about these sort of problems they are hid away in a closed closet.  But this book has improved mine and hubby's love life 100 fold!!  And brought some issues to light that he didn't even know was there.  Definitely a book I recommend.  The same authors also have written "Every Woman's Battle", "Every Young Woman's Battle" and "Every Young Man's Battle" which are all equally great books!

 

The Five Love Languages: How To Express Heartfelt Commitment To Your Mate

by Gary Chapman

 

  This wonderful book teaches the reader about how people give and receive love differently.  According to the author, there are 5 basic love languages- quality time, acts of service, gifts, words of affirmation and physical touch.  He explains how to detect your and your mate's love languages. Very good read!

 

Boundaries

by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend

 

  This book teaches the values of having healthy personal boundaries, and respecting the boundaries of others.  This book changed my life!  

  This book is also the first in a series of equally wonderful books, such as "Boundaries In Marriage".

 

 

Safe People

by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Towsend

  An awesome book that teaches the reader how to avoid toxic people, and how to become a safe person for others.

 

 

Who's Pushing Your Buttons?

by Dr. John Townsend

  This was really an affirming book for me!  It showed the how's and why's behind people who irritate me, and that when people irritate me, it isn't always them purposely being out to hurt me.  Sometimes it's MY issue!  It also shows helpful tips for helping to change the button pusher into someone who is safer.

 

 

"Love Must be Tough"

by Dr. James Dobson


  In my case, especially with a husband having a mental illness, love must be especially tough, even tougher.  In my opinion after reading it, I realize we have probably all given in to problems at some point, thinking it was the kind, understanding thing to do...but love can't be weak to survive!
  Just to add that he does have parenting books, and other books on marriage/relationships; I haven't read them but I'm sure they must be accurate, as he has excellent insight into the human mind.

 

 

The Lady, Her Lover And Her Lord 

by Bishop T.D. Jakes

This book is awesome reading, for both single and married women.  It shows the reader how to become content with herself, how to be a great wife (or future wife for the single ladies), and how to have a completely fulfilling relationship with her God.

 

Woman Thou Art Loosed! 

by Bishop T.D. Jakes

Another lovely book by our favorite Bishop, this book helps the reader to be loosed from the pain of past abuse that is affecting her life, even many years later.

 

Ancient Paths

by Craig Hill

This book is simply awesome, but not for the immature Christian!  Learn how to conquer pain of the past and difficulties of the present with this wonderful book that gets to the root of issues.

 

Marriage: Covenant Or Contract

by Craig Hill

A wonderful book on marriage that shows how God sees our marriages.  They aren't to be tossed aside easily, but cherished and worked through.

 

Beauty For Ashes

by Joyce Meyer

Mrs. Meyer was sexually and verbally abused for the first part of her life, yet she learned how to overcome the pain of that abuse by reading God's word.  She teaches the reader to overcome that pain as well.

 

Help Me, I'm Married!

by Joyce Meyer

An enjoyable read on making the most of your marriage. Includes personal experiences and pictures from worldwide preacher, Joyce Meyer.  She tells it like it is, and tells of her own struggles.  Who could want more from a preacher?

 

How To Succeed At Being Yourself

by Joyce Meyer

Another great book... this one teaches how to stop being a people pleaser, and how to be the person God intended you to be. 

 

Manage Your Emotions

by Joyce Meyer

Another great book by Mrs. Meyer, that helps the reader give God control over his/her life instead of emotions.

 

Root Of Rejection

by Joyce Meyer

Many people with troubles in their daily lives have a root of rejection, due to being abused by parents, teachers, etc.  This book shows the reader how to conquer this debilitating stronghold.
