The 7 Spiritual Practices of Marriage: Your Guide to Creating a Deep and Lasting Love by Kevin Anderson, Ph.D. 2005. Paperback, 7 x 9”, 224 pages,
Great marriages are created intentionally by a daily commitment to honoring, loving behaviors. Would you like a marriage that is unusually 1) committed to a shared vision;
2) sexually passionate; 3) physically and emotionally close: 4) spiritually connected?
Most engaged couple answer nothing but YES, YES, YES, and YES! Often, however, the dream fades with the pressures and conflicts of married life. Millions of couples are not intentional about building the marriage they want and end up with a broken dream. The seven-practice model give you the knowledge and skills to make your marriage extraordinary!
Kevin Anderson applies (Ignatian and Salesian) intentionality* to the development of a marriage based on his own marriage and his professional counseling experience. It is an eminently practical workbook in many bite-sized entrées. It is fun just paging through the book and reading the quotes in the outside margins including St. Francis de Sales.
[*Intentionality: At its most simplistic: “A target is easier to hit if you aren’t blindfolded, but rather, can see it. For a marriage, look together, decide together, aim together, and decide to do what it takes to hit the target. Be intentional, be deliberate.”]
